Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)
During the Covid-19 “stay at home” order, we have decided to hold our Halaqa online using Google Meet every Thursday morning in sha Allah.
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 Maryam verses 1-11 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.
Note: We decided to designate one sister each week to read Surah Fatihah aloud while the remained of the sisters read with their microphones muted.
Surah Maryam verses 1-11
We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 6
Sister Alia read # 3, 4. We discussed that there is more background and Sister Karima mentioned the relevant verse from Surah Ali Imran so we read that tafsir as well.
