With a sudden shift away from the classroom to online learning around the globe, we are witnessing the demand for online educators. 

Online teaching is not as easy as it may sound. Indeed online teaching needs structure, passion, commitment, creativity, smartness, patience and much more.

Muslim sisters around the world are exploring wise and insightful ways and means to adapt to the current situations and pursue on a halal method of earning to aid their families financially without compromising the religion of Islaam. Alhamdulillaah.

We know that teaching is something recommended by the scholars of Islaam for women especially because it is something that is beneficial for the society as well as beneficial for the Muslim women to safeguard her modesty when done in an Islamically legislated environment.

    Qamar Homeschool Serving the Community in New Jersey

      بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    We are absolutely delighted to partner with Qamar Homeschool in New Jersey in collaborating with them to provide our Nurture Islaam Pre Kinder Curriculum Pack and our other Nurture Islaam Series Products along with our Nurture Islaam Online Courses to benefit their community. Alhamdulillaah. 

    Qamar Homeschool is run by a family close to my heart. May Allaah preserve them.  Aameen. The team is headed by Umm Raafiq a dear sister who is close to me and who has joined me for all of my workshops and courses for mums and teachers. She comes with real-time experience of homeschooling her children who range from little ones to teens to grown-ups! Allaahumma Baarik. 

    And the most interesting part I love is that her teens and grown-up children are part of Qamar Homeschool team too. They are such lovely, well mannered and knowledgeable girls who are my students for the last four years. Alhamdulillaah. 

    Sister Umm Raafiq is well known in the masjid Rahmah community in New Jersey, USA, for her social services in the community. May Allaah accept from her and her family. Aameen. She has been working hard in cultivating her own children teaching them at home while also involving other children in the community whenever possible. We have collaborated with her for our Ramadhaan and Summer Workshops where she organized the live/recorded streaming of our courses for the New Jersey community. It was such a pleasure to have worked with her and the rest of the children. 

    Alhamdulillaah, going further she turned her basement into a lovely Homeschool with some stunning interior to welcome other children in the community who are looking for a safe and fun-filled learning environment upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah as understood by our pious predecessors. 

    Look at this before and after images to see how much work has been gone into transforming the basement to an inviting knowledge base. Subhanallaah!

    Qamar Homeschool is open to preschoolers and kindergartners from the community and it is a wonderful opportunity for the families in New Jersey to take advantage of. Qamar Homeschool uses our Nurture Islaam Pre Kinder Curriculum Pack for PreK and Kindergarten along with some exciting other beneficial resources. 

    They have also taken into consideration the beneficial tips, hacks and information imparted at our Homeschool/Teachers Workshops and courses to design their learning spaces. Don't they look so inviting and tempting!!! Allaahumma Baarik. 

    Such a cute reading corner with some interesting resources! Dramatic play area for little kids to have some hands-on experience with what they have learnt!  

    Such a colourful Mathematics work area, yet again focusing on many different learning styles where kids can freely explore numbers.

    Islaamic studies integrated into all the secular subjects as that is the core of our Nurture Islaam Pre Kinder Curriculum Pack that Qamar Homeschool is using with the little ones. 

    Absolutely adorable Qur'aan Centre to learn the words of Allaah and implement. Such an inviting place. 

    Qamar Homeschool is also ready to enhance the much-needed technology skills from an early age with moderation and supervision. 

    And finally, what about these gorgeous cubbies and the motor-sensory learning spaces. They just look so wonderful. 

    And finally, have a look at this inviting learning space for the teens and preteens, which we hope would further benefit with older kids joining Qamar Homeschool for learning different skills and projects and also Qamar Homeschool would gradually open their doors for higher classes Inshaa Allaah. Currently, this is the learning space for Sister Umm Raafiq's own teen/preteen kids. Allaahumma Baarik. 

    If you are in or around New Jersey and if you are looking for similar learning set up for your kids then this is your destination to send your kids to gain some beneficial knowledge. The Qamar Homeschool children join me for my Pre Kinder Online Classes and they do so well for their age Allaahumma Baarik. We have witnessed their presentation and the learning environment via live video sessions and they do a fantastic job with the permission of Allaah. 

    Additionally, with the current situation, Qamar Homeschool is following guidelines to the best of their abilities, including mandatory testing, regular temperature scans, intense cleaning and sanitizing. May Allaah protect them and us. Aameen. 

    If you or anyone you know would like to reach out to Qamar Homeschool for inquiries or enrolment please contact Umm Raafiq at Inshaa Allaah.

    May Allaah put barakah in this new venture and benefit the New Jersey community at large and accept it from all who are involved. Aameen.

    Who is Allaah? - Online Course for Little Kids Ages 3 - 5

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    Stemming from my last blog post "How to Teach Aqeedah to Little Children" we are pleased to offer yet another online course for the little kids. 

    Due to many sisters demanding a stress-free interactive course for the little ones where they will get exposed to authentic Aqeedah knowledge we decided to start with "Who is Allaah"?

    This age group (3 to 5 years) is an interesting age group where kids are very receptive to learning, of course when it is engaging and interesting to them. However, I was reluctant to have online classes for this age group as I strongly believe that children this age should be cultivated by their parents with bonding and fruitful discussions.  Then we realised many parents are worried about imparting the correct aqeedah knowledge and are fearing that they may make mistakes while they try to explain concepts of Aqeedah to their kids. We understand this, therefore, we chose to offer these courses along with the mums, where mums enhance their skills of teaching the children.

    Join us for the first course for this age group and enjoy the sessions with your little ones. We have only a few spaces left for the live sessions. However, you are welcome to sign up and complete at your own pace and timings. Details below. 

    What will the course cover?
    • Children will learn how to answer the question "Who is Allaah?"
    • They will be learning a few Names of Allaah 
    • They will be exploring the signs of Allaah
    • This course will be an audiovisual presentation with hands-on craft activities and worksheet activities as per the age and ability of the child. 
    • Children will receive the Nurture Islaam Pre Kinder Series Book "Who is Allaah" along with other course materials. (All course materials are digital downloads). 

    How to Sign Up?
    This is an interactive and engaging workshop with an audiovisual presentation with access to the recording!

    Those who are unable to attend live can signup and complete the course at your convenience. Passcode to access the workshop will be provided with the digital materials. 

    Who can Attend: Kids Ages 3 - 5 Boys and Girls with their Mums

    Where: Online

    When: (Wednesdays) 1st, 8th, 15, 22nd July 2020  Inshaa Allaah. (This course is with access to the recordings, so you do not miss anything inshaa Allaah)

    Time: 6.30pm to 7.00pm KSA/Qatar Time

    Cost: US $ 20

    Payments to be made online via Payoneer with Visa/Master Card in USD only

    How to Teach Aqeedah (Creed) to little Children?

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    Alhamdulillaah, with many parents realising the importance of teaching children the Aqeedah or the Creed from an early age, I get questions from sisters how exactly they could teach this to their children without making them imagine things. 

    Aqeedah is the core of the religion of Islaam. Aqeedah is the foundation upon which the deen is built and by which actions of a Muslim become sound and correct. 

    Some of us may have the thought that this is such a complex concept and little children are unable to absorb and understand this concept at an early age. therefore it is best to wait till they grow and reach an age they are able to distinguish important criteria in order to explain Aqeedah to them. 

    This thought is natural because sadly,  many of us learnt the right Aqeedah when we were older. 

    However, children are like sponges, especially when they are young. And parents and teachers rush to give them every other knowledge in order to develop their language, motor and social skills from a very young age, and of course, put off Aqeedah for later. 

    My advice is to let the teaching of Aqeedah be the first thing that you teach your children. If that is the case, the next question is how exactly we should be teaching little children Aqeedah?

    Yes I agree Aqeedah is not something you can do like teaching mathematics, language and science. We do have limitations as many of the aspects of the Aqeedah are from the unseen (Ghaib), and we have Islaamic restrictions and boundaries to adhere to. 

    So here are some simple tips and ways to consider teaching Aqeedah for little children.

    Use the Books of the Scholars

    Get your information from the works of our scholars. Subhanallaah we do not have to look elsewhere. They have left a legacy behind with authentic rich text and information. Invest in the books of the Ulama from the right publishers and authors. 

    They gave importance to Aqeedah and they taught just as the Prophet sallaahu alaihiwasallam taught his companions. When you use information from the correct authentic sources it becomes very easy to teach these aspects to your children. All you need to do is simplify it and feed in the information little at a time with some creativity as per age and ability. You cannot teach something you do not know. So it is best that you equip yourself with knowledge first.

    Integrate Aqeedah into Academics and Day to Day Learning

    Children learn well when they see relevance to their own lives and surroundings.  So the best way to teach Aqeedah is to INTEGRATE it into what they explore and learn every day. If you separate Aqeedah or Islaam from academics and their surroundings they will see no relevance to it and it would become something boring for them. If you expose them to learning other subjects with engaging resources and enthusiasm and leave off Aqeedah for other than that, they will not be keen to learn the Aqeedah.

    NOTE: We covered an extensive workshop on how to integrate Aqeedah and Islaam into academics a year ago and you can see the details of the workshop here and sign up and benefit.

    Get the Right Resources

    If you stick to the serious rich information the child will be receptive and imagination can be limited. This largely depends on your approach and the resources you use. So be mindful of choosing the correct resources. Check if the resources that you choose are from the right authors and right sources. Remember, Aqeedah is the core if you take this lightly and use anything and everything it will be really difficult to take out the wrong or incorrect information fed into little minds.

    Blending Online Learning into Homeschooling - Online Workshop for Mums

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    A few months ago, we had a FREE online workshop for mums who were suddenly forced to homeschool their children due to the current situation on "Making the Most of Online Learning". The turnout for this workshop was overwhelming Alhamdulillaah. Stemming from this introduction workshop we decided to go deeper into this dominating topic to enlighten the schooling and the homeschooling mums!

    Yes, we have designed a simple to understand 4-day workshop for busy mums who are shouldered with an added responsibility of educating the children full time. 

    Situations bring CHANGES! Sometimes we like the changes and sometimes we don't.

    COVID-19 has forced some changes in the whole education system and made the policymakers rethink and reinvent.

    This means even after Allaah lifts this Calamity, the CHANGE in the Education Policy is going to be a reality.

    This also means that parents are now required more than ever before to be part of the education of their children. Whether you homeschool or whether you send your children to school You as a MUM will have a different role to play in understanding and supporting the trend.

    Home educators may argue this situation has no CHANGE in their Homeschool as they were always away from the Standard Education/School systems.

    However, take note, Home Education too is expected to take a twist!

    The wise Home Educator will not relax now. You have taken in charge of your children's education, therefore you should be aware of the happenings, you should be wise to prepare yourself now to ADAPT and Change where needed.

    So our question is, how will the Covid-19 pandemic alter the future of teaching and learning?

    Educationist and experts are predicting the below three points as some main changes to expect in the near future!

    • Blended Learning Will Dramatically Increase
    • Online Education Will Be a Strategic Priority at Every Institution
    • Existing and Potential Online Program Management (Providers) Partnerships Will Be Rethought

    No doubt the above changes will have benefits and challenges. Many parents, as well as teachers, are new to these concepts and we cannot expect them to understand and adapt to these overnight. 

    Having noted the above the next question is to understand how this change would affect the "Muslim Children", and what should be taken into consideration by Muslim parents in order to adapt these changes without compromising the religion of Islaam.  The Salafus Saaliheen, our predecessors used to say that children are upon their initial upbringing, and it is this initial education that moulds them for the future.

    And the greatest of blessings from our Lord is that everything Allah decrees for the believer, whether in ease or hardship, will be good for him. If he experiences ease, he remains grateful and is rewarded. If he experiences hardship, he remains patient and is rewarded. Therefore we as Muslim parents must be wise to understand these educational changes and adapt it accordingly where we pave the way to aid our children to fulfil the purpose of their creation. In other words, strike that balance! 

    There is so much more to this topic subhanallaah, so I invite you to join me for a 4 Weeks Workshop to learn how you could ADAPT to this change and prepare wisely to continue your homeschooling or educating your children with productivity and success, Inshaa Allaah. 

    What would this workshop cover?

    Alhamdulillaah I have been blessed to be in the education field for the last 20 years. This means Allaah blessed me to experience the changes first hand in the education system over the past 20 years from a mainstream traditional classroom, school to homeschool to online learning to virtual learning and more, Alhamdulillaah. Come to think of it, subhanallaah, the advantage for me and for you is that I would be able to share with you information and experiences as a parent, a home educating mum, an online instructor/teacher and a certified Cambridge UK Educational mentor. Alhamdulillaah!

    I would be offering support, advice and guidance which would involve transferring my experience and expertise to you where you could develop your skills and achieve your goals. Inshaa Allaah. 

    This would include but not limited to:

    • What is traditional Home Education and how it is redefined today!
    • How could Mums who are sending children to school use online learning to maximize productivity. 
    • Challenges of Adapting to Home Education and Solutions
    • Understanding Online Learning 
    • Understanding Blended Learning and Methods
    • Real-time Demonstrations of Blended Learning 
    • Supporting Blended Learners
    • Embracing Your Homeschool with Blended Learning
    • Recommended Resources and Programs for Blended Learning
    • Detailed in-depth PDF printer-friendly notes to refer back any time
    • Practical Assignments to try out with guidelines
    • Q and A Session to clear your doubts

    • A Certificate of completion for those who complete the assignments

    Private WhatsApp Homeschool Support Group

    Did you know that we have a special online space to support each other? When you sign up for this workshop you get to join this FREE support group which is for sisters who join me for any of the Mums online workshops.

    This private WhatsApp group is special because it does not overwhelm you, it is not flooded with text and chit chats that would waste your time, rather it is a structured support group with organized activities and discussions extending throughout after the workshops, reminding you of the contents and continuing to develop your skills and professional development as a homeschooler, teacher and parent inshaa Allaah.

    Here is a feedback of the WhatsApp group and this is almost the same feedback we receive from all members by the mercy of Allaah alone!

    "Alhamdulillah, this is by far the best and most beneficial homeschooling group that I have been on mashaAllah. JazakAllah khayr for taking so much time and thought into topics and creating beautiful content and activities. All your effort is so much appreciated, may Allah Subhanahu was Ta'aala grant you aafiyah, barakah in time and tawfeeq and steadfastness always. Aameen."

    "Alhamdulillah, I am so happy to be part of Umm Maimoonah’s workshops. She is such an amazing professional Muslim teacher, and she is also a good Muslim sister with knowledge and proper aqeedah In Sha Allah. Her workshop gives clear guidelines of homeschooling for Muslims that wants to adhere to Islamic principles, and all information about homeschooling from curriculum to learning style."
    Umm Amelia, Canada

    "Alhamdulilah workshop was awesome, it helped me a lot, knowing about my child and myself. I have learned that what a mother (as a teacher) should know about her children regarding their education and learning. Workshop boosted me with positive energy towards homeschooling and it has taught me, no matter whatever be your hurdles but there is a way and ease with every difficulty you face for which you have to be strong and courageous, alhamdulillah. The best part was
    everything she explained was with correlation with Quran and sunnah. May Allah bless with her more knowledge and give her success in both the worlds. AMEEN"

    "This is here to thank you for letting me join your course: "Overcoming the Struggles of Homeschooling"
    It was a life-changer for me and my daughter. Doctors informed me, she has a certain sign of autism. I was suffering from overwhelm and anxiety.  Your course helped me get out of it.  It changed my mother-child relationship too. I changed my teaching habits and she has shown a huge amount of improvement. We have got closer to understanding one another.
    For this, I need to first congratulate you and thank you after Allah, to start blogs and courses which can change people's lives towards improvement.
    May Allah grant you Jannah for your good work. Aameen."
    Manaal - Qatar

    "I benefitted enormously from this course. This is the first time I am joining a mums workshop by a Muslimah. By Allaah, I have nothing but good things to say about this course «Mums homeschooling workshop». I had so many 'aha'-experiences in this wonderful and very rich course and learned so much new about learning and teaching styles. I needed to be motivated and inspired for homeschooling, and Umm Maimoonah did that very well. I highly recommend more of these for mothers. May Allah bless her and her family and her wonderful work, Ameen!
    Umm Sarah - Norway

    "Allahu Akbar, this introductory workshop was so beneficial, Maa shaa’Allah. I’m thankful to Allah for what was presented. I have researched and read so much information regarding homeschooling from a range of education websites, homeschooling bloggers, and various advice offered by homeschooling parents. All of what I’ve come across so far, has actually been helpful yet overwhelming at the same time. However, by Allah’s decree, participating “live” online with a Muslimah as a facilitator, who Allah, the Most High, has blessed to learn from trustworthy salafi Scholars of Islam, and who from the method she used to present the information and from its content, alhamdulillah, Umm Maimoonah, selected and provided what is relevant to Muslim homeschooling parents who are striving to teach our children following the guidance of the Prophet Muhammad, sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, whilst also presenting an understanding of important general child development principles and useful teaching practices.
    This workshop helped to sort out secular points and put them into context according to fundamental beliefs in Islam in an easy to understand way. It was EXACTLY what I needed to help me rethink and reflect on how and what I can capably do bi’ithnillaah for my children to the best of my ability."
    Umm Aisha Dara - New Jersey, USA

    "It was an eye-opener for me on homeschooling, the intriguing part is the learning and teaching styles while the most valuable advice from Umm Maimoonah was that «even if you are unable to achieve a scholarly secular knowledge, you would have achieved training the child with sound Aqeedah and make the child know him/her purpose of creation which is to serve Allaah alone. "
    Ummu Uwais - Nigeria

    "I attended Umm Maimoonah's Workshop with lots of uncertainty about homeschooling. But Alhamdullillah she was very approachable and cleared all the doubts I had. I particularly liked the talk on learning styles. She helped us with aiming at small, achievable goals for our children and also with making steps towards achieving those goals which I found immensely helpful. I definitely could see all the efforts put into the workshop come to life. May Allah reward her for her efforts and for all her future endeavours, Ameen."
    Um Amina - Australia

    "The workshop went well. It went beyond expectation for something conducted at home. Feels like it came from a big formal institution."
