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: Recitation

Sisters read Surah Fatihah aloud; then we each recited from Surah al-Hajj verses 16-23, 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.   

Discussion:  Sajdah of Tilawah. Pre-requisit for making the sajdah.

Verse 17

Learn Arabic Group

Alhamdulilah, Amanah Sisters has started a small group for Learning Arabic. We are following an online course from Arabic 101 and enhancing it with our own content.  We post twice a week and are proceeding at a relaxed pace. We are keeping a diary of our lessons for our own review and for Sisters who join after our start date. 

May Allah, the Most Generous abundantly reward both Sister Alia and Sister Shimaa who have volunteered to be our consultants. They are both available in our WhatsApp Learn Arabic group to answer any questions related to each post/lesson. 

Sister Alia will be sharing a feature called Quranic Connections where she encourages you to take what you learn in the lesson and expand on it with a connection to the Quran.  These sections are unique opportunities to open your Quran and discover new information in Arabic. As the lessons progress you will have more hands-on involvement with your Quran in sha Allah. 

If you are interested in joining this group, please contact us.

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.
