Attendance:

Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)


  • OPENING DUA
Oh Allah, we have gathered together in our love of You.  Strengthen our bond and unite our hearts.  Help us to gain useful knowledge and implement it in our lives.  Grant peace and blessings on our beloved Prophet Muhammed.


  • 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 113  till Ayat 126.  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
Sister Winnie read aloud an article called Prophet Muhammad’s Smile  Sisters then participated in a lively discussion regarding different aspects of using smiling in our daily lives and interactions to uplift our moods and spread our deen.
  • LEARN A DUA

Dua to say when seeing another Muslim smiling (laughing)
May Allah keep you smiling (laughing)
Adhhakallaaho sinnak
أَضْحَكَ اللَّهُ سِنَّكَ


  • SISTERS TALK
Sister Winnie shared  a fun interactive book of simple dua’s, geared to children, but at the same time very useful for those who are learning arabic as it has both transliteration, Arabic lettering and english translation.  You are able to hear the duas just by clicking a button.  Apologies though as it is only for use with ipads and macs.


We listened to some of the dua’s altogether.
  • VIDEO  
  • TECH TALK
Sister Winnie shared with everyone a website she recently discovered.
This, website is a free interactive fun educational tool to help you learn and understand the arabic of the Holy Quran.  To see a short video of how to use the website click here.


  • CLOSING DUA
Oh Allah, put smiles on our faces and in our hearts. Allow us to share the joy and happiness of Islam and belief in you with our fellow sisters, family and friends.

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.
