Seerah - When the Moon Split and Al Israa

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Few days ago I just realised it has almost been 2 years since we did Seerah Worksheets, Subhanallaah! We started our seerah study if you remember something like this. We used to do Worksheets based on The Sealed Nectar and Maimoonah used to enjoy them from those days.

Since then we have been reading the Book the Sealed Nectar and revising the Makkan Period as we almost finished off the Makkan period at that time. We lately switched to "When The Moon Split" book as we found that more appealing for reading for Maimoonah, and since it does not go into that much detail but still covers the events Maimoonah enjoys reading by herself as well. Also its by the same author of the Sealed Nectar any way.

So we started off from where we stopped with regard to the Worksheets and, after reading the Miracle of the Prophet and the event led to it we also covered Al Israa and Mi'raaj again and she completed the worksheets yet again.


This worksheet is available for dowloading here on My Downloads page over here Inshaa Allaah!

Tarbiyah Girls Club - First Session

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Alhamdulillaah a dear friend of mine who is also a fellow homeschooler had the idea of forming a Girls Club to give our girls different flavours! So we did a small brainstorming and came up with "Tarbiyah Girls Club". 

As you see above we hope to cover the topics mentioned and carry on this club with 12 girls who have enrolled from ages 6 to 11 Inshaa Allaah. Today was the first class and this is our classroom.

Each child is given a binder, notepad and a small notebook. All notes and worksheets will be filed in the binder and the kids are taught to organize themselves by noting down homework they need to finish up and any other important matters they need to tell their parents or things they need to bring for the next class. Just creating a sense of responsibility here Inshaa Allaah.


We started off with explaining the Khutbatul Hajjah and the girls introduced themselves. Then we went through the "Manners of a Student" as we see from our salaf.

We are using the book "Al Waajibaat" to cover Aqeedah. So today we did lesson 1. We are using the Waajibaat Worksheets done by our dear sister Umm Khadeeja which you can also download here.

So we explained to the girls certain important terms and gave them notes to file and worksheets to do some homework.

Today for home - making the girls were taught some basic kitchen safety rules and since the recipe for today was Dates and Chocolate Chips Cookies they were taught some hadeeth about dates and given some homework to do on dates.

Then the girls were taught the importance of washing the hands before cooking. They all washed their hands and were now ready for a cooking lesson with another homeschooling sister. Maashaa Allaah she did a wonderful job with the girls. They learnt to measure using cups, teaspoons, tablespoons and measuring cup. They also learnt different skills such as breaking eggs, stirring, mixing, blending, using an oven and so on.



While the cookies were put for baking we carried on with the Tahaarah lesson. We are using Shaykh Uthaimeen's (raheemahullaah) book " Arousing the Intellects with the Explanation of Umdatul Ahkaam - Book of Tahaarah". Maashaa Allaah a very nice book with very short explanation. So we did the first hadeeth which is of course "Actions are in accordance with the intention".

After which the girls tasted their delicious cookies and went home.

We hope all the girls enjoyed today as much as we did preparing for them Inshaa Allaah. Maimoonah was very pleased with the whole idea and the class today. My sincere thanks to the dear sister who opened her doors for us and having us use her home for this class and preparing all the things and I also thank the other sister for coming along and helping us with home making. Jazzakumullaah Khayr! Inshaa Allaah we will meet again in another 2 weeks for the next interesting class.

Inheritors of the Prophets - Imaam Sufyaan At Thawree

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The next scholar we completed some time ago in our Inheritors of the Prophets series was Imaam Sufyaan at Thawree Raheemahullaah.

We used the following link to read about his biography

We learnt about his birth place and about his father who was also a scholar of Islaam. We read that he was a Mujtahid, Imaam of the Memorisers and the most noble scholar at his time who was well known for acting upon his knowledge. 

We went through his teachers and his students and some of the wonderful saying of other scholars about him.

We read and re read some of his wise statements through which we understood that he was always seeking to learn hadeeth to the extent that people were asking him when will you stop seeking for hadeeth!

We learnt that he died of a stomach pain and in fact made wudoo 60 times that particular night before he died raheemahullaah.

The document we did for this could be downloaded here Inshaa Allaah.
