A halaqa is a religious gathering or meeting for the primary purpose of learning about theology, typically Islam. Generally, there are one or more primary speakers that present the designated topic(s) of the Halaqa while others sit and listen. The attendees may participate in the discussions, ask questions, and voice concerns. Usually, prayers and supplications are part of such programs. Also, meals or snacks may be served to the participants.[1]
