Free Islamic Studies Textbooks

Asalaamu alaikum, I knew that would garner your attention, hehehe….. anyway I found this link I wanted to share for free downloadable islamic studies books for ages 7-11. These are pdf files which can be printed out at home for your homeschooling use. Here is the only issue – I would ask that you go through it and make sure everything is okay in the book as I haven’t had a chance to do so myself, I only looked through the first few pages, jazakAllah khair.

Asalaamu alaikum
So alhamdulillah, we went for the Eid celebration today at the mosque alhamdulillah. It was wonderful, so much for the kids to do. We were there from eleven to four mashaAllah.

On a homeschooling note, we started the Rosetta Stone program through Alif Arabic online. It is nice, although sometimes it will not accept your voice if you dont sound exactly like the announcer so I found that if I yell into the mic, they accept it inshaAllah, and then we move on lol.

Also, I think I am going to add Shakhsiyah Islamiyah more often in our curriculum. Its something we work on without really noticing every day such as when he practices akhlaaq and adaab but I want him to know it is important inshaAllah and befitting for all muslims to have good Shakhsiyah Islamiyah.

another sister homeshooling mashaAllah…

Asalaamu alaikum sisters,

I just wanted to give a shout out to another sister and dear friend of mine, Mariam Umm Muhammad. She is currently homeschooling her daughter mashaAllah while keeping an eye on her two younger sons! She is a wonderful sister and mother so I would like to be the first to welcome her to our online homeschooling community and offer any help I can give… I know it is hard sometimes habibti, but jazakAllah khair for all you do, may Allah subhana wa t’ala reward you in the akhirah and may He make it easier for you and your family every day inshaAllah.

Allah made autumn

Bismilillah ar raman ar raheem,

This curriculum study unit explains inshaAllah how everything is created from Allah subhana wa t’ala. The children will also learn about apples, the seasonal fruit of autumn and do many crafts which I will either link to inshaAllah or post here. I hope you enjoy them. Go at your own pace, do not worry about keeping up with us, as I will be posting as I find the resources, rather than once we complete them ourselves inshaAllah. More to come so stay tuned inshaAllah…

cool & crisp…its autumn mashaAllah

Asalamu alaikum sisters,
I woke up this morning to cool, crisp air outside and for the first time in months, my son and daughter needed coats to go on a walk… it was beautiful out mashaAllah! Autumn is my favourite time of year because, aside from ramadhan and eid, its apple picking time at the orchards (in Europe, UK, Canada and America anyway, not sure about the middle east!)

For Eid, aside from the prayer, I think we are going to take the kids apple picking inshaAllah… it will be my daughter’s first time, as she was in hossie last year when we took her brother. MashaAllah, he loves the horses and hayrides, and apple picking, and hot apple cider… I remember going there as a little girl, there was this rope we would use to jump from the loft in the barn and then let go and fall into the hay piles…. oh and of course we would collect maple syrup from the maple trees! Sigh….I love autumn. Here are some ideas for an autumn curriculum for your own children inshaAllah


1.) Bake an apple pie.

2.) Organize an apple tasting and explain about different textures, smells, tastes and colours. Explain that Allah made them for us to eat and be healthy mashaAllah (I will expand on this to make it more relevent inshaAllah).

3.) Apple Bobbing

4.) Dipping caramel apples

5.) Make Baked apple porcupines – recipe to follow inshaAllah
Stick clove “quills” in apples before baking for a simple and delicious treat. Just make sure to remove before eating!

6.) Go to the park with hot apple cider and a blanket (you could bring this with you in a canteen inshaAllah)

7.) If you find apples with leaves, you can do apple leaf rubs with a pencil or crayon

YAY I AM TOO EXCITED MASHAALLAH! Worse than the kids… aybe! lol
