Next halaqa will inshaAllah be on June 4th Sat 7am PST, 10am EST, 5pm Istanbul time live at ha-mim.org/live. Today, we continued studying Sura 87, Sura alA'la (Chapter of the Most High).
The halaqa is based on what we understand from the Receiving Nur videos consisting of 6 parts where Sura alA'la is discussed, the link of the 1st part is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjXbRcTGjK0
Note: You can download the youtube video and convert it to mp3 using realplayer's realdownloader program, in order to play the audio file on your computer or phone without needing internet access.
------------------------------------------
We began our study with the recitation of Sura alA'la in its English interpretive translation by Asad followed by its original Arabic recitation (apologies for the sound being a little distorted).
------------------------------------------
Below you will find the link for some notes we took during this halaqa, trying to summarize the main points we discussed. We focused on the first word of the first verse (find full chapter below copied from http://www.islamicity.org/quransearch/):
"سَبِّحِ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ الْأَعْلَى (87:1" "Sabbihi isma rabbika alaAAla"
"EXTOL the limitless glory of thy Sustainer's name:[the glory of] the All-Highest, - 87:1 (Asad)"
"Glorify the name of thy Guardian-Lord Most High, - 87:1 (Y. Ali)"
"Praise the name of thy Lord the Most High, - 87:1 (Picktall)"

Al-A'la (The Most High) (English by Asad)
سَبِّحِ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ الْأَعْلَى (87:1)
EXTOL the limitless glory of thy Sustainer's name:[the glory of] the All-Highest, -
الَّذِي خَلَقَ فَسَوَّى (87:2)
who creates [every thing], and thereupon forms it in accordance with what it is meant to be, [1] -
وَالَّذِي قَدَّرَ فَهَدَى (87:3)
and who determines the nature [of all that exists], [2] and thereupon guides it [towards its fulfilment], -
وَالَّذِي أَخْرَجَ الْمَرْعَى (87:4)
and who brings forth herbage,
فَجَعَلَهُ غُثَاء أَحْوَى (87:5)
and thereupon causes it to decay into rust-brown stubble! [3]
سَنُقْرِؤُكَ فَلَا تَنسَى (87:6)
WE SHALL teach thee, and thou wilt not forget [aught of what thou art taught],
إِلَّا مَا شَاء اللَّهُ إِنَّهُ يَعْلَمُ الْجَهْرَ وَمَا يَخْفَى (87:7)
save what God may will [thee to forget] [4] - for, verily, He [alone] knows all that is open to [man's] perception as well as all that is hidden [from it] [5] -
وَنُيَسِّرُكَ لِلْيُسْرَى (87:8)
and [thus] shall We make easy for thee the path towards [ultimate] ease. [6]
فَذَكِّرْ إِن نَّفَعَتِ الذِّكْرَى (87:9)
REMIND, THEN, [others of the truth, regardless of] whether this reminding [would seem to] be of use [or not]: [7]
سَيَذَّكَّرُ مَن يَخْشَى (87:10)
in mind will keep it he who stands in awe [of God],
وَيَتَجَنَّبُهَا الْأَشْقَى (87:11)
but aloof from it will remain that most hapless wretch –
الَّذِي يَصْلَى النَّارَ الْكُبْرَى (87:12)
he who [in the life to come] shall have to endure the great fire -
ثُمَّ لَا يَمُوتُ فِيهَا وَلَا يَحْيَى (87:13)
wherein he will neither die nor remain alive. [8] -
قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن تَزَكَّى (87:14)
To happiness [in the life to come] will indeed attain he who attains to purity [in this world], -
وَذَكَرَ اسْمَ رَبِّهِ فَصَلَّى (87:15)
and remembers his Sustainer's name, and prays [unto Him].
بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا (87:16)
But nay, [O men,] you prefer the life of this world,
وَالْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَى (87:17)
although the life to come is better and more enduring.
إِنَّ هَذَا لَفِي الصُّحُفِ الْأُولَى (87:18)
Verily, [all] this has indeed been [said] in the earlier revelations –
صُحُفِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَمُوسَى (87:19)
the revelations of Abraham and Moses. [9] - 87:19 (Asad)
