Back to Homeschool and Going to College

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,

We are back to homeschool for this year and one of my kids is going to college.

How is your homeschool going?

A lot of members in the group want to know how to start homeschooling their kids.

If your kids are in the school age, 7 years old, then you have to formally homeschool them at home.
If you want to start homeschooling for big kids, then you should withdraw your kids from your school by writing the letter of intent to Board of Education and the principal of school to let them know that you are going to homeschool your kids.

If you need the sample of the letter withdrawal, it is in here.
You can start homeschooling when you get the approval letter from Board of Education, in one or two weeks.

Some of other suggestions are:

  • Finding out about the regulation of homeschooling in your state.

  • Finding your homeschooling group so you can get support from the group.

  • Finding some used or new text books or reading books that you can use for your kids.

  • Keeping all the homeworks that you have done with your kids.

  • Writing down the plan and the journal, it is good way to use as record keeping.

  • Always be happy with your kids surrounding you at home.

  • Having alot of patience (sabr).

  • Always making alot of doa to Allah.

You can find some of more informations in Ikhlas Homeschool: All About Homeschooling.

I also want to let you know that this is my last post in this bloq.
I will continue writing and sharing my homeschool year 2008-2009 in my new :

Insha Allah.
Happy Homeschooling!!!

Learn Sabr and Shukr

I shared the story to kids.

To hear the khutbah:
Halaltube: Sabr or Shukr The Worry Stops Here! by Muhammad ash-Shareef

Aasiyah, the wife of Fir’own. Her Eeman in Allah thrived under the shadow of someone that said, “I am your Lord, Most High!” When news reached Fir’own of his wife’s Eeman he beat her and commanded his guards to beat her. They took her out in the scalding noon heat, tied her hands and feet and beat her perpetually. Who did she turn to? She turned to Allah! She prayed, “My lord, build for me a home with you in Paradise and save me from Fir’own and his deeds and save me from the transgressive people.”

It was narrated that when she said this, the sky opened for her and she saw her home in Paradise. She smiled. The guards watched astonished, she’s being tortured and she smiles? Frustrated, Fir’own commanded a boulder to be brought and dropped on Aasiyah, to crush her to death. But Allah took her soul before the boulder was brought and she became an example for all the believing men and women till the end of time:

"And Allah has set forth an example for those who believe:
the wife of Fir’own (Pharaoh) – when she said,
“My Lord, Build for me a home with You in Paradise,
and save me from Fir’own and his deeds,
and save me from the transgressive-disbelieving people."
(Al Qur'an Tahreem 66/11 )

In the hadith of Jibreel, when he came to the Prophet (SAL ALLAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) and asked him about Islam, Eeman, and Ihsan, the Prophet SAL ALLAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM said about Eeman, “Eeman is to believe in Allah, His angels, His books, His Messengers, the Final Day, and the divine decree, the good and the bad thereof.” For the past few weeks we have been reflecting on this hadith, only glimpses. Today we shall conclude with the last article of Eeman: to believe in the Divine decree, the good and the bad thereof.

As you and I travel though life we find ourselves in one of two situations. Either something good is happening in our lives and in which case – as Muslims- our role is to thank Allah for the blessing. Or something bad is happening to us, something we dislike and our role here is to be patient (Sabr). This is the formula for a happy life, a life cruising towards the pleasure of Allah. Sabr or Shukr, the worry stops here.

The Messenger of Allah (SAL ALLAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) said, “Strange is the affair of the Mu’min (the believer), verily all his affairs are good for him. If something pleasing befalls him he thanks (Allah) and it becomes better for him. And if something harmful befalls him he is patient (Saabir) and it becomes better for him. And this is only for the Mu’min."

How To Finish Recitation Al Qur'an In A Month

Ramadhan is the month of the Qura'an.

Insha Allah, you can finish recitation Al Qur'an in a month if you can read around 4 to 5 pages after each salaah.

4 X 5 salaahs a day X 30 days = 600 pages
(approximately the number of pages in the Al Qur'an which is 604 pages )

Each letter one reads counts 10 hasanat.

Don't forget to learn the meaning of Al Qur'an, too.

May Allah increase our ibadah in the month of Ramadan. Ameen.
