Asma ul Husna Part 2
- 4 Sisters
- 1 Junior Sisters
Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)
- OPENING DUA
All praise is for Allah who gave us life after having taken it from us and unto Him is the resurrection.
الحَمْـدُ لِلّهِ الّذي أَحْـيانا بَعْـدَ ما أَماتَـنا وَإليه النُّـشور
Al-hamdu li-l-lâhi l-ladhî ahyânâ bacda mâ amâtanâ wa ilayhi n-nushûr
A dua for waking up from Fortress of the Muslim (with audio)
- QURAN RECITATION
We read Surah Fatihah aloud altogether, then sisters individually read aloud a few letters/words, ayahs (according to her ability and with the help and encouragement of her fellow sisters). We read Surah Baqarah from Ayat 260 till Ayat 286. 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.
- SISTER’S TALK
Sisters shared their research on the names of Allah chosen the week before. Click on each name to read more.
Afterward we chose new names to research.
LEARN A DUA
Fortress of the Muslim page 91 #97 (with audio)
97 - "I take refuge in Allah’s perfect words from the evil He has created. [Three times in the evening]"
أَعـوذُبِكَلِمـاتِ اللّهِ التّـامّـاتِ مِنْ شَـرِّ ما خَلَـق . (ثلاثاً إِذا أمسى)
Acûdhu bi-kalimati l-lâhi-t-tââmmâti min sharri mâ khalaq (3fois).
In the actual book there is a footnote:
Whoever recites this three times in the evening will be protected from insect stings, Ahmad 2/290, An-Nasa’i, ‘Amalul-Yawm, wal-Laylah no. 590, At-Tirmithi 3/187, Ibn As-Sunni no. 68. According to Al-Albani, Ibn Majah’s (2/266) chain of transmission is sound (Sahih), and following Ibn Baz 45, At-Tirmithi’s report is good (Hasan)
- TECH TIP
Sister Winnie has come across three websites that in sha Allah, will be useful for learning the names of Allah, Most High.

A listing of Allah’s Beautiful Names, with a short description in English.
Also, 3 downloadable mp3s with those names in song format.

- CLOSING DUA
The Expiation of Assembly - Kaffaratul-Majlis
Subhaanaka Allaahumma wa bihamdika, 'ash-hadu 'an laa 'ilaaha 'illaa 'Anta, 'astaghfiruka wa 'atoobu 'ilayka.
Glory is to You, O Allah, and praise is to You. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but You. I seek Your forgiveness and repent to You.
Reference: Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, At-Tirmithi and An-Nasa'i. See also Al-Albani, Sahih At-Tirmithi 3/ 153. Aishah (RA) said: "Allah's Messenger (SAW) did not sit in a gathering, and did not recite the Qur'an, and did not perform any prayer without concluding by saying ... (then she quoted the above)." This was reported by An-Nasa'i in 'Amalul-Yawm wal-Laylah (no.308), and Dr. Farooq Hamadah graded it authentic in his checking of the same book, p. 273. See also Ahmad 6/77
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.
