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

Quran: Reciting

Sister Alia read Surah Fatihah aloud; then she recited from Surah Taa-Haa verse 99-113, followed by a sister reading the English Approximation by Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran.  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 Taa-Haa verse 99-113

We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir   Volume 6 

Sister Alia read #2 and #3.

  1. The Entire Qur'an is the Remembrance of Allah and mentioning the Punishment of Those Who turn away from It

Verses 99-101

  1. Blowing of the Sur and the Day of Resurrection

Verses 102-104

  1. The destruction of the Mountains and the Earth becomes a Smooth Plain

  • The title of this Halaqa came from the discussion we had after listening to the tafsir.

Post-Halaqa Sister Nissa shared: 

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.
