Post-fajr halaqas YES!!!

A'salaamu alaikum! My husband is going to be going through the Qur'an with me, surah by surah, and doing an early morning halaqa with the emphasis on tafsir and learning the meaning behind the verses in the Qur'an. I am so excited; it stemmed from a conversation we had this morning which turned into a "Grab the Qur'an with Arabiy and English". I read aloud the entire surah (surat-ul-Maryam) and he would stop me to interject definitions, meanings, clarify the English, give background and related hadith, etc.

Really I am so excited and happy about this. :-) It was so much fun this morning and I know I am learning LOADS more than when I just read Qur'an on my own. It is indeed a huge blessing from Allah swt that I have married A. Alhamdulillah there are many good things about our marriage (please say masha'Allah!) but this is really one of his selling-points for me. I intend to exploit his knowledge to the fullest!!! lol

One ayat which really spoke to me today (which I'm sure we've all read before) is ayah 67 of surat-ul-Maryam:

"Does not man remember that We created him, when he was nothing?"

Subhanallah. I love this; these exact words or very similar are sprinkled throughout the Qur'an, a CLEAR reminder to be grateful to Allah and be in awe of His majesty and omnipotence.

I just wanted to share this ayah with you all that you may be blessed with it too insha'Allah.

MasyaAllah! isn't it wonderful when we can have these kind of relationship with our own imam...our own husband sharing knowledge together...masyaAllah, i am happy for u!

Umm Aaminah said...

Yes sis Hajar, you are so right. And it looks as if Allah has blessed you, too, with this gift. :-)

Masha'allah! I love coming upon reminders like this in the Quran, either of Allah's mercy or His great knowledge. Always brings a peacefulness to my heart, knowing He is in control. Have a great day sis and thanks for sharing!

Masha'Allah, what a fantastic opportunity! Yes, I highly recommend milking his knowledge for all its worth (and Insha'Allah he feels the same way)! :) Insha'Allah I would love to be in a relationship where my husband and I learn together, no matter who the teacher is (me, him, someone else, as long as we're both learning).

I third that mashaAllah! :-)

Umm Hamza said...

Masha'Allah Tabarak Allahu feeki! Those are the best moments, learning something so important from someone you love. Salam walaykum.

Umm Hamzah said...

Maasha'Allah SiS. Sounds like fun! At the moment I've taken it upon myself to teach myself arabic... How I'm going to do it I'm not so sure yet. Am I going to do it? Most definitely! It would be lovely to have someone to do it with - that's such a beautiful bond you have with your husband Maasha'Allah! Can't get any better than that!

Asalaam Alaikum sis,

(Im new to this blogging thing but I you blog so far masha Allah)

Masha Allah that is soooo beautiful. This is one of the many reasons i really really want to get married. I have been Muslim for a year and a half now Masha Allah and i LOVE seeking knowledge about my deen. However i think my journey would be even more beneficial with a husband who is able to increase my understanding.
Early morning Halaqas sounds wonderful!! Love it!!

Salaam and thanks my sisters for all your comments. I really do love having an in-house source for authentic info. :-) And in return, I can explain pop culture references in english articles he reads. Hmmm :-/

Sr. Shalisha, my husband was just asking if I know of any sisters wanting to get married. I think the brother looking is kinda young (24) and I don't know how old you are. Anyway feel free to comment me back; I won't post it, just delete.

Alrighty, ma salaama!
