Welcome Baby Muhammad

11 Sisters

3 Junior Sisters

Location: Zonta Meadows, Mississauga

Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)



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, each Sister recited a few lines from Surah Maryam verses 77-95, 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 Maryam verses 77-95

We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir   Volume 6 

Sister Alia read #4

  1. Refuting the Disbelievers Who claim that They will be given Wealth and Children in the Hereafter  

Verses 77-80  page 304

  1. The Idols of the Polytheists will deny Their Worship, 

The Power of the Devils over the Disbelievers

Verses 81-84   page 306

  1. The Condition of the Righteous and the Criminals on the Day of Resurrection

Verses 85-87  page 309

  1. The Stern Rejection of attributing a Son to Allah  

Verses 88-95  page 312


We had a very interesting and uplifting discussion.  We touched on the saying of Allah that occurs many times in the Quran……  

When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, "Be," and it is.

We also discussed Repetivitive Dhikr and Sister Alia shared the following hadith:

Source: Hadith - The Book of the Remembrance of Allah - Riyad as-Salihin

Quran: Tajweed

We are following a book from our library that is not copyrighted.

Tajweed for Beginners  Prepared by Qari Ismail Essack

We now have a Tajweed Channel and Group on Telegram, where Sisters can catch up on missed lessons and participate in group discussions.  Email us if you would like to join. 

Tajweed Lesson 23   Chapter 7  Sifaat

Sister Shimaa joined us via speakerphone and introduced Sifaat.  She provided a video for us to listen to on our own and two extra pages to help our understanding.  Please review them and any questions can be asked in the tajweed discussion group.

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.
