Asalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu,
Ahlen wa sahlen! Welcome and sincerely thank you for visiting our blog, whether you are a parent, teacher, home schooler or schooler!
This blog started out originally as "diary of a Muslim home-school" back in March 2011.
What started as the documentation of personal experiences from a home educator more than 6 years ago, has evolved into a means to share educational resources and articles relating to education and Muslim family life.
Following this new direction, the blog was re-launched under the name A Muslim Home School, a year or so later, reflecting a less personal story per se and focusing instead on sharing resources, learning ideas and musings around home education and family.
Who am I?
You won't find my picture anywhere, and whilst I do occasionally share some personal reflections around education and family for the benefit of others, I don't tend to share much personal about myself and family beyond this.....because there is no benefit to you my dear reader to do so.
But to give a brief idea of who is behind a Muslim Home School for the purpose of transparency....
I am a mother, living in the UK, striving to raise my children upon the Qur'an and Sunnah, according to the understanding of the Salaf as Saalih bi'ithnillah.
My university background is design, however I have gone on to gain qualifications in nutrition: including childhood obesity and pre & post natal nutrition.
I am currently studying behaviour change, as well as on going personal studies in Arabic and Islamic Studies.
We have completed primary and just begun secondary education with our eldest so I am far from a home schooling veteran, in fact just the opposite....most definitely a novice!
I have however learnt a lot over the past several years after throwing myself into this learn on the job role of home educator, and hope I can share some of what I have benefited from inshaAllah.
What will you find here?
Free educational and planning printables, children's projects that might inspire, as well as articles and reflections around home schooling, parenting and family.
When I began home educating, I found a lack of suitable resources to use with my children, particularly Islamic material that was of good quality and authentic. I found that producing what I needed gave me exactly what I wanted...and cheap!
The resources and articles shared, are for the most part, things which I have done, used or created for my own children, which perhaps will be of use to others also inshallah.
Islamic Resources Disclaimer
Muḥammad Ibn Serīn
I must be clear, I am merely a mother, striving to raise my children to know for what purpose they were created for, inshaAllah.
Whilst I have my own personal Islamic studies through attending lessons, audios and books of the Scholars and Taalib ul Ilm, I am not a true student of knowledge in the real sense of the word, rather I am completely a layman. Therefore any Islamic resource material I share, are not from "myself", but instead based upon the works of the Ulema or known students of knowledge to help teach our children inshaAllah.
I tend to avoid producing resources which "teaches", and instead produce material that will aid a topic from authentic works, such as simple worksheets, lapbooks or note booking pages to accompany a taught study.
May Allah keep us firmly upon the straight path, guide us to what is true and keep us away from falsehood.
All good is from Allah Alone, and all errors are from myself and the Shaytan. Please notify me of any mistakes using the form on the contact page.
You can find me on Facebook where I share any articles from around the internet connected to education, family and parenting, as well as Instagram where you will find snippets showing some of the things learning or exploring and lastly Pinterest, a place I hoard virtual "stuff" to inspire from around the web!
