Welcome to Muslim Homeschoolers Unite
Innamul Mu’meenoonah Ikhwah
We may not be related, but our bond is stronger than blood. Our hearts are united by faith for the sake of Allah. We long for freedom in education with the world as our classroom and Islam as our guide. We are firm believers that children are not just a score or number and deserve to be seen and heard as a valued member of society. We trust children with the time and space they need to thrive, protecting the wonder of childhood. Despite the challenges, the journey is always headed towards Allah’s pleasure.
Our desire is to support one another on this path.
We are stronger together.
Teacher Turned Homeschooling Mother
When I began homeschooling my eldest, I didn’t know any homeschoolers or have access to homeschooling resources such as curriculum and guides, let alone Islamic homeschooling resources. That put me on the path to create my own.
If I take you back to my college days, you’d see a confused young sister, wondering why she was pursuing law, when she had a knack for working with children. I woke up one day to an epiphany, changed my major to Education and never looked back.
My education background has been beneficial in helping me create something I didn’t have; something that we needed – Islamic curriculum, guides, and the skill to integrate Islamic Studies into any secular subject. Alhemdulilahi Rabil A8lameen.
You can ensure that your family is getting the best educational resources based on my previous experiences in both private and public school settings, while continuing to integrate time honored educational philosophies put forward by Charlotte Mason along with others.
What lead me to the greatest understanding of education, however, was becoming a homeschooling mother.
Muslim Homeschoolers Unite was born out of the years of research in school and at home as a mother.
Our passion is to equip Muslim families to homeschool in a way that is Islamic, developmentally appropriate, spiritually nourishing, and based on proven methods of education.
We believe in a living education, with time available for reading aloud, creating, spending time in nature, experiencing the world, and most importantly, learning about Islam.
Teacher Turned Homeschooling Mother
There is no greater school than motherhood. My passion to raise spiritually, morally, and emotionally intellectual children lead me to homeschool as a service to Allah SWT.
As a young child, I was influenced by my school teachers and imagined myself becoming an educator. While in University, I decided to study computer engineering. Let’s just say it wasn’t my forte! Fast forward many years to motherhood, an urge of being an active, educated, and open-minded mother took deep roots within my heart, Alhemdulilah.
This led me to enroll in education and then later I became a preschool teacher at an Islamic school. I learned how to design Pre-K curriculum and activities that were based off of the Montessori approach to learning.
It was a life changing experience. Alhemdulilah.
At some point, I wanted to understand my religion more, so I enrolled in Islamic Online University in which I studied both applied sciences of education as well as Islamic sciences such as Tauheed, Seerah, Fiqh, and Islamic Psychology.
The benefit of studying with IOU was helping me achieve a balanced approach to using educational tools while understanding the importance of my role as a teacher, guide and parent through Quran and sunnah. Currently I am completing my undergrad thesis for my B.Ed. degree.
Alhamdulilallah, the years of homeschooling have been a blessed journey for my family and we have come a long way to becoming confident lifelong learners.
Having a community of Urdu speakers for my bilingual children was also an important aspect of our homeschooling process. Therefore, although my blog posts are in English, I’ve decided to include Urdu Livestreams, videos, and resources for Urdu speaking families looking for the same multi-lingual experience.
How beautiful and important is this blessed path of raising our young. An Amanah, a trust, to be fulfilled with utmost care and diligence.
We are happy to be a part of your homeschooling journey, dear sister.
