Location: Online via Google Meet
Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)
O Allah, bless this Halaqa, allow us to gain, act upon and share beneficial knowledge.
Guide us, forgive our sins and grant us Jannah with our families and loved ones.
O my Lord increase me in knowledge*. رَّبِّ زِدْنِى عِلْمًا Ameen
We read Surah Fatihah aloud altogether, then Sister Alia read Surah Al-Kahf verses 75-83 followed by Sister Mai, reading the English Approximation. In sha Allah, this will be an ongoing part of our Halaqa and one day in sha Allah, we will have Khatam Quran and begin again.
Surah Al-Kahf verses 75-83
We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 6
Sister Alia read parts 3, 4 and 5
Was Al-Khidr a Prophet
Why he was called Al-Khidr
How interesting to learn the background of the Ayaat and how the use of grammar places emphasis on certain points.
Should we attribute Peace be Upon Him to Al-Khidr since he is considered a Prophet?
We are following a book from our library that is not copyrighted.
Tajweed for Beginners Prepared by Qari Ismail Essack
Sister Alia substituted for Sister Shimaa and continued the lesson about Makhaarij
Aqsal Lisan Harooful-Lahaatiyyah Harooful-Lahwiyyah Back of the Tongue Letters
Wasatal Lisan Middle Tongue Harooful-Shajriyyah
She used the notes in the book Page 17 and the following two pictures to aid our understanding.
We skipped this section as there were no children attending.

Sister Winnie read: Love Extending, & An External Love
Allah, swt, gave us the gift of love, not just romantic love. This love can take many forms and levels. You can love different people in different ways. You can get various and different benefits from these different forms of love. Always try to show your appreciation for those in your life that you love. Whether in person or with a dua.
When we see a sister in Hijab, there is an instant bond, an instant love for my Muslim Sister.
We listened from minute 28:10 to 35:46
Discussion: Appreciate the miracle of the Quran.
Sister Rim read the following finishing the second section.
Part Two: Connecting Children to Pillars of Islam Chapter 10
Discussion: A great reminder and analogy to a traveller. When we focus on the hereafter, Allah, swt. will fill our lives with contentment.
Our upcoming planned Halaqas are:
Friday, July 3, 2020, 10:30 am
Celebration Square Splash Pad
We will be taking precautions to avoid catching / spreading Covid-19.
Sisters who wish to attend virtually please get in touch with us a day before the Halaqa.
Post-Halaqa, we realized that meeting outside was not a wise decision and will instead be
continuing our online Friday Halaqa's for now, until the regulations change allowing for
larger gatherings, in shaa Allah.
Sister Mai finished the chapter about
Umm Salamah radi Allahu anha
In the book, the bottom of page 90-91
Sister Karima read Repel boredom from your life Pdf pg 92-93
E-book, page 93-94
For the expiation of sins, said at the conclusion of a sitting or gathering. To listen to this dua click here
"How perfect You are O Allah, and I praise You.
I bear witness that None has the right to be worshipped except You.
I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance."
سُبْحـانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمدِك، أَشْهَـدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيْك
Subhânaka l-lâhumma wa bi-hamdika. Ash-hadu an lâ ilâha illâ anta, astaghfiruka wa atûbu ilayka..
If any of this information was good and true, know that it comes from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.
If there are mistakes we ask for Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy.
