Opening Dua

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

*Part of ayah 114 Surah Taha(20)

Quran: Reciting

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.   

Quran: Tafsir 

Surah Al-Kahf verses 75-83

We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir   Volume 6 

Sister Alia read parts 3, 4 and 5

  1. The Story of killing the Boy

Verse 74-76

  1. The Story of repairing the Wall Allah tells us that

Verse 77-78

  1. Interpretations of why the Ship was damaged  

Verses 79

  1. Interpretation of why the Boy was killed

Verse 80-81

  1. Interpretation of why the Wall was repaired for no Charge

    1. Was Al-Khidr a Prophet

    2. Why he was called Al-Khidr

Verse 82

  1. The Story of Dhul-Qarnayn Allah says to His Prophet

Verse 83-84


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?

Quran: Tajweed

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. 

Children’s Focus

We skipped this section as there were no children attending.

A Temporary Gift

Sister Winnie read: Love Extending, & An External Love

 Pages 136-7

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.

Seerah Gems

We listened from minute 28:10 to 35:46

Seerah of Prophet Muhammed 1 - Specialities of Prophet Muhammed - Yasir Qadhi | April 2011

Discussion:  Appreciate the miracle of the Quran. 

Nurturing Eman in Children

Sister Rim read the following finishing the second section. 

Part Two: Connecting Children to Pillars of Islam Chapter 10

Responsibility and Accountability

The Nature of this world

Discussion:  A great reminder and analogy to a traveller. When we focus on the hereafter, Allah, swt. will fill our lives with contentment. 

News and Schedule

Our upcoming planned Halaqas are:

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.


Great Women of Islam Who Were Given the Good News of Paradise

Sister Mai finished the chapter about

Closing Dua

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.
