Alhamdulillaah - New addition!

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


السلام عليكم 

Innal Hamdalillaah! Allaah blessed us with a baby girl and we have named her Ramlah after the name of of the wife of the Messenger of Allaah sallaahu alaihiwasallam,  Umm Habeebah Ramlah bint Abee Sufyaan radhiyallaahu anhuma. She is indeed a bundle of joy to all of us and Maimoonah is thrilled to have a little sister. She has been whispering throughout last Ramadhaan during the last ten nights asking duaa for a brother or a sister and Alhamdulillaah, Allaah granted her just that. May Allaah make little Ramlah the coolness of our eyes and source of good for us in this world and the hereafter and protect her from every evil and make her firm upon the right path. Aameen.

I have been taking a long break from blogging due to my rather difficult pregnancy, Alhamdulillaah. Maimoonah has been a great help throughout, May Allaah bless her and we as a team have been learning a lot of life skills during this period even though homeschooling with regard to academics have not been achieved fully. Maimoonah has been completing most of the subjects for the year. This period also helped her to enhance her skills in writing and spent most of her time reading. She has been taking care of the laundry, cleaning and at times even making food while I was unable to do anything much. And now she helps me with the baby as well. And most of all the lovely sisters in Doha were always there to help us throughout the pregnancy and even now after delivery. May Allaah reward them and bless their families abundantly for all the help and support rendered to us. Aameen.

The delivery of Ramlah is indeed very special as it so happened that Maimoonah was able to witness her birth, another experience blessed by Allaah, Alhamdulillaah. It is indeed a story to tell and remember the Mercy of Allaah. Maimoonah has started a baby diary for Ramlah where she is recording the happenings of her sister from day one and would like Ramlah to read the diary when she is old enough to read Inshaa Allaah. More on that later Inshaa Allaah!

Homeschooling altogether from now on will be having a change I guess as this would mean homeschooling two little personalities with different ages. Alhamdlillaah Maimoonah is able to do work independently but needs some challenging or interesting projects and change of methodology to work on which I was unable to provide during the last whole year. We need to get organized and start up fresh after Ramadhaan Inshaa Allaah where Maimoonah will also leap into Secondary level as we have completed the Primary Curriculum for most of the subjects. Islaamic Studies needs to be put into focus again as we could not do much except for reading the books and Maimoonah has been working on her Tajweed with a dear sister and memorizing the soorahs which she likes. 

So till we embark on some structured schedules during the next school year after Ramadhaan Inshaa Allaah Maimoonah is hoping to do some craft projects and note booking as well as some activity packs to keep herself occupied along with writing her journals. We will be sharing her work and ideas as she completed Inshaa Allaah. 

She has her own blog now and would be sharing her blogging skills as well. Once she is done with her designing and content will share the link .

I also could not continue with the classes and workshops for the kids, we hope we could resume most of them Inshaa Allaah after few months.

So a lot of changes, challenges, adventures and achievements to look forward to by the permission of Allaah. We ask Allaah for His Mercy, guidance and blessings throughout.

Asalamualaikum. Mashallah congragulations :) i pray Allah gives you the strength to raise righteous daughters.

Dear sister i was going through some of your older posts and wondering how you scheduled your days with just maimoonah? I saw that you had a whole lot of subjects.

Could you please do a day in the life prior to the pregnancy? I really want to know how you structured and ordered your days to cover all the subjects.
