Learning in general should be engaging and enlightening. This is especially true for the Quran. I have been experimenting with various ways of teaching the Quran and testing it out on my children and so far I have found one way that has been keeping their interest and attention longer, especially considering their young ages. They are all under the age of eight, MashaaAllah.

They’re also learning Islamic history as we […]

Health from the perspective of Islam seems to have been covered by many
Islamic sites. However, in most cases, the effort seems to have been more focused on prevention rather than cure.
For the past year I’ve been thinking about what I would do when my eldest son reaches the age of kindergarten. Although I’ve been technically homeschooling my sons ever since they started talking (like all parents), I’ve always steered away from calling myself a ‘homeschooler.’ There’s just something intimidating about the term. I can’t count how many different materials I’ve read on the subject of homeschooling. While my gut-feeling is telling me that this is the right thing for my children, I’ve been having the fear of what if I fail them? What if I decide to homeschool my children […]
While all stories in the Quran carry amazing lessons for us to learn from, there are some that are easy for even children to understand the underlying message. These stories can be great for children because they’re inspiring and a learning experience for them. We all know how reading and telling stories to children is beneficial for them in various ways.
