Morning and Evening Duʿāʾ - دعاء الصباح والمساء
Remember your Lord inwardly, in all humility and awe, without raising your voice, in the mornings and in the evenings, and do not be one of the heedless. (7:205)
The Morning Ḥalaqah begins with a group recitation of the Morning and Evening Duʿāʾ, which is taken from a narration transmitted from the Prophet Muḥammad, ṣalla l-lāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam. Students are then expected to recite this duʿāʾ, or the evening version of it if applicable, in the evening at home to extend their learning and apply what they have learned in school. One duʿāʾ is recited year-round while another is specific to each unit. An English translation of each duʿāʾ recited in Arabic is then read by the Qurʾānic Arabic teacher for that week to help students understand what was recited.
