Thoughts on Muslim Homeschoolers Curricula

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Masha'Allah, as the new school year has started some sisters have kindly posted their long range plans/curricula. I have enjoyed reading sis Umm Maimoonah's and sis Umm Sara's (those are the only two I've read from Muslim sisters but I'd love to read more insha'Allaah).

As I read the two curricula I mentioned, I wondered if other Muslim homeschooling mothers have posted theirs for others to benefit from. I also wondered if their exists a forum for Muslim homeschoolers to come together and share ideas and support one another. Today's Tomorrow has a forum but, curiously, it appears to be inactive...I wonder why? Where do Muslim homeschooling parents go for support/help?

This year has certainly been a learning experience for me. I have come to have great respect for homeschooling parents. In the past, it was not that I had no respect for them *smile* it was that I was not aware of the expansive world of homeschooling and the talent of these dedicated parents. Recently, I even declared that I think homeschooling just might be more work than teaching in a Teachers have a plethora of pre-prepared materials to select from and we have a pre-written curriculum to follow. We also get great goodies at professional development workshops alhamdulillah. I notice that homeschooling parents design much (if not all) of their material and it's so wonderful masha'Allah! Imagine the reward with Allaah!

Please continue to share what you do so that others may benefit and learn from you and may Allaah reward you!


  1. Assalaamu Alaikum dear sis,
