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 Taa-Haa verse 13-37, 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.

Surah Taa-Haa verse 13-37

We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir   Volume 6

Discussion:  How the Glorious Quran covers every societal situation.  In this case, “disabilities”.  Sister Ibadah shared with us the background of Prophet Musa and his speech impediment. 

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. 

Sister Shimaa is taking a break for the month of November so we will be having periodic tajweed reviews on the Telegram Channel. 

 In our Halaqa’s, we will shift focus to “Learning Arabic”.  We used a set of flashcards and some writing boards and played a game of Pictionary to help our new members learn some Arabic letters. 

We encourage each sister to start learning Arabic using the following app to help her learn the basics.   Alif Central - Learn to Read the Quran

Discussion:  A believer should not be bored, but should always be looking for opportunities to contemplate Allah, and worship Him in various ways.  There is no such thing as “killing time” for a believer.   

Wordly self is concerned with worldly entertainment, but a believer should always be planning and preparing for the hereafter

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.
