The ICLI Sunday Sisters’ Halaqa Group
“The most complete gift of God is a life based on knowledge.” Hazrat Ali Ibn Abu-Talib
Islam is a religion that deeply supports learning and knowledge.
The ICLI Sunday Sisters’ Halaqa Group is an “Islamic Circle of Knowledge”.
The Halaqa is composed of a diverse group of sisters of various ethnic, educational, and cultural backgrounds. The sisters seek to enhance and enrich their total Islamic learning experiences; they are committed to deepening their Iman, as they get to know each other, develop friendships, and build community.
Since Covid-19, the group continues to meet faithfully Sunday mornings on Zoom to advance their Islamic learning. On occasions, the class is extended, so that sisters who prefer, may remain on Zoom to fraternize and further support one another. Due to our virtual meetings, sisters who move away from the ICLI area, or who live out of state or country, are able to stay connected with the group and continue to gain beneficial knowledge.
Sisters are taught by a knowledgeable and dedicated teacher who is well versed in Qur’an, Hadith, and Islamic Studies. We enthusiastically learn about Tafseer of the Quran, Seerah of Prophet Mohammad (SAW), Adab, (prescribed Islamic etiquette) and significant Islamic holidays.
Additionally, Mufti Farhan, ICLI Executive Director, periodically facilitates sessions for us. Future plans for the Halaqa include inviting other scholars to serve as guest speakers at our weekly sessions.
Finally, as ICLI takes into account the recommendations of the CDC, we look forward to the Halaqa meeting in-person more regularly to learn our Deen in sisterly love, and friendship for the sake of Allah (SWT), Insha’Allah.
The Sisters’ Halaqa is held every Sunday on Zoom from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM.
We welcome you to join us!
