Safar 10, 1443 AH
My First Halaqa
9 Junior Sisters
3 Junior Guests
Location: Mississauga Valley Park
Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)
Note: During our Halaqa’s, Allah willing, we encourage discussion after each section. Sisters can share their reflections, thoughts and questions.
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)
Sisters read Surah Fatihah aloud; then we each recited from Surah al-Hajj verses 1-5, followed by Sister Rim, 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.
Surah al-Hajj verses 1-5
We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 6
Sister Maria read #3.
Man's Development from Infancy to Old Age His saying;
We are following a book from our library that is not copyrighted.

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.
Today’s lesson was postponed.
Q & A
A friendly round of Questions and Answers to get to know our fellow sisters.
One sister asks another, then that sister asks the next question to someone else.
Questions should be light and personal.
Sister Marwa read information about our next two names and then she recited the first 44 names.

"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.
