About the Halaqa
We gain Islamic knowledge through the Quran and authentic sources such as the ahadith. Why gain knowledge? In order to improve ourselves so that we can become better human beings and fulfill our duties towards Allah, by becoming better daughters, sisters, mothers, wives etc. We seek and share knowledge not only for personal & spiritual growth but also to contribute to society as professionals. Throughout the years, we have lovingly supported each other through difficult and joyous times. We are a very warm and open group and have the utmost respect for each other. In keeping with this thought, one particular hadith comes to mind. This is an excerpt from the longer hadith of Mu’adh ibn Jabal (RA) –“…Glad tidings to you for I certainly heard the Messenger of Allah saying: “Allah (SWT) said, My love is guaranteed for those who love each other solely for My sake, for those who sit with each other solely for My sake, for those who visit each other solely for My sake, and for those who spend on each other solely for My sake.” [Muwatta Imam Malik: 2/953]
