Attendance: 6 Sisters
Location: Online via Google Meet
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
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.
Surah Taa-Haa verse 99-113
We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 6
Sister Alia read #2 and #3.
The title of this Halaqa came from the discussion we had after listening to the tafsir.

Post-Halaqa Sister Nissa shared:
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.
