It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an (i.e., the one who memorized and studied it): ‘Read, advance in status and recite as you used to do in the world, for your status will be commensurate with the last aayah that you recite.’” (Tirmidhi)
Asalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu…
My dear homeschool mom who has prioritised the memorisation of the Qur’an in her homeschool plan, juggling it alongside academic studies, chores, babies and self-care.
I know its hard.
I know its time-consuming.
I know it requires dedication
Tonnes of patience.
Days you feel it won’t get done.
Moments you feel like its best to just stop where you are now…
Mornings you need several coffees to keep you going.
I acknowledge your struggle. As beautiful as the goal is, the path to its achievement isn’t easy.
And sometimes when we go looking for that inspiration from other homeschoolers, it’s not always easy to find or not something that we can fully relate to, especially when their chunk of table work gets done in about 3 hours yet here we are two hours later just having finished our Qur’an revision for the morning.
But I’m here to reassure my dear sister, that your effort is beautiful, and that your sacrifice in the sight of Allah won’t go unnoticed.
Because although it’s tough, its sweetness far outweighs that hardship…
That making the Book of Allah priority in your home will have life-lasting effects…
That through this goal you have for your children, you yourself are improving…
That you are not only giving your children and family a solid foundation for the dunya but also the akhira…
So hang in there, you are doing beyond amazing, Allahuma barik!
