We will be returning to Thursday Halaqa’s starting July 16th, in shaa Allah

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 98-110 followed by Sister Rim, 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 98-110

We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir   Volume 6 

Sister Alia read parts 1 and 5

  1. The Barrier restrains Them, but It will be breached when the Hour draws nigh

Verse 97-99

  1. Hell will be displayed before the Disbelievers on the Day of Resurrection

Verse 100-102

  1. The Greatest Losers in respect of (Their) Deeds  

Verses 103-106

  1. The Reward of the Righteous Believers

Verse 107-108

  1. The Words of the Lord can never be finished

Verse 109

  1. Muhammad is a Human Being and a Messenger, and God is One

Verse 110


What is the meaning of “Hadab” …….. from every side (corner) all around

There is so much evil and oppression in the world, How much patience does Allah, swt, have with mankind?

Sister Alia recommends Yasir Qadhi’s series on the Signs of the Day of Judgement.  A fascinating series that is so relevant to our modern times.


There is a word that is repeated twice with the difference of one letter. The added letter “taa” puts more emphasis on the word which means “can”. Allah’s swt use of grammar and meaning to give such lovely elegance in the reading of the Quran. 


If Dajjaal comes what do Muslims do?

Sister Alia shared:

Sister Shimaa shared: Who is the Dajjaal - Islam Question & Answer

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.
