Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu ladies, thats right, a Muslim Homeschool Course!
After several years of homeschooling, I’ve had so many messages from sisters from all walks of life who are almost living two different lives. What they portray on their feeds might be bright and colourful snips of their homeschool days but it’s almost the opposite of how they as mothers really feel.
Sure, outwardly they seem to have it all under control. But in reality…
🚩They feel isolated. It’s hard to speak about their struggles because their decision to homeschool was already criticised; admitting their struggling will just make it WORSE.
🚩Homeschool has led to disconnection not increased connection with their kids.
🚩They are struggling to keep up with all the demands of learning for their different aged children.
🚩They dread homeschool planning because it takes up SO MUCH TIME, taking away from just quality family time.
THEY ARE NOT HAPPY.
And this was my reality too at one point. Ironically, our homeschool wasn’t always ‘happy’ because I wasn’t. And I’m not ashamed to admit this because I know this might be your reality now. But it doesn’t have to be for much longer.
Because after months of work, I’m finally ready to share with you my biggest project I’ve ever worked on.
A comprehensive eight week homeschool course like no other!
A course that doesn’t touch upon homeschooling is in the ‘dictionary sense’. But a homeschool course that PRACTICALLY EQUIPS YOU as a homeschool mother on how to homeschool…
and enjoyably. For the long run.
So let me introduce the ‘HOW TO HOMESCHOOL MULTIPLE KIDS (without falling apart) course.
An eight week intensive course designed to help you practically navigate through it all. I’ve taken out all the ‘busywork’ that many courses offer, and put together a course that really will help you build your Muslim homeschool on paper and practically! In really is a course like no other!
Why did I design the course?
Because I want to equip mothers with skills in which they can prioritise deen in their Muslim homeschools whilst still giving academics attention. Because for many of us, we get so bogged down by the academics we begin to compromise the very reason WHY we started homeschooling, our deen!
And so, as Muslim homeschool mothers, we need something that takes this into account!!!
To add to this, we all know that homeschooling isn’t easy. And regardless of how many years you’ve homeschooled, the challenges are still there; albeit in different forms.
And having multiple kids can make you feel pulled in all directions.
So you might spend days setting up this idealistic routine that is actually unrealistic, leaving you feeling worse.
or browse blogs and social media for hours searching for curriculum to lessen the load, but all it does is dent your budget, and at the end of it all, you’re still left feeling the same.
or change things up ALL the time, leaving you feeling unrested, anxious and unconfident.
And at the end of the day, even after a whole day of doing so much, It makes you feel like you’re not giving each child what they need, and your certainly not giving yourself enough time. Homeschooling can easily start to feel like the very reason you’re feeling distant from your children, rather than closer than ever.
But it isn’t because you’re not doing enough. Or that you’re inexperienced. Or that you’re just not cut out for homeschooling.
It’s that you’re still stuck in the bubble that homeschooling has to look in a particular way, that not being in ‘constant pick up mode’ must mean you’re unproductive, and you still hold the idea that free time means you’re not doing enough so it must be filled.
I get it. I was there. Doing those things, most of the time, yet still feeling unfulfilled. I wondered how other homeschool mothers seemed to have it all under control, and more than often thought the problem must lie with me.
But I was wrong. It wasn’t that I was incapable. But more so that I’d fallen into the trap of replicating school at home, and then someone else’s homeschool in my own. And the second one is harder to spot!
But there are ways to make things easier for YOU – the one driving your homeschool forward. And so I designed this course to help mamas overcome this linear, overwhelming, frustrating way of homeschooling so you too can homeschool feeling calm, connected to your children, and with a bigger purpose insha’Allah.
Why is this course different from other homeschooling courses?
Well, the biggest difference is we won’t just look at ‘homeschooling in the dictionary sense’ – but through the LENSE OF YOUR HOME.
Each module is designed like a building block, so we maximise and implement what we learn before moving on further. And probably the biggest game changer, this course is FULL of practical tasks unlike other theoretical courses. Week by week you won’t stop at just reflecting, you’ll make physical changes in your home and school to facilitate and solidify your homeschool! It’s one thing knowing something, but it’s completely different implementing and making long term change. This course isn’t what homeschooling is, it’s physically and mentally preparing you for it!
TOGETHER, we will
– Delve deep and go through what exactly homeschooling is (and what it really isn’t) so we can start off with clarity!
– Learn how to practically choose resources that kids of a wide age range can use, including how to adapt resources you already have, saving your time, energy and MONEY insha’Allah.
– Schedule your day in such a way kids work independently but still get one to one time with mama.
– Pinpoint what aspects of homeschooling you can put on autopilot so you have more time doing the things you love.
– Piece together A LONG LASTING ROUTINE that actually WORKS even when life happens.
– Learn practical cooking and cleaning methods that lighten the HOME load, leaving you pockets of time with your kids without any learning objectives. I call it ‘dehoming’!
– Delve into habits that will keep us committed and consistent in our homeschools, that go beyond physical self-care’.
AND MUCH MORE insha’Allah!

Who is this course for?
This course is designed for mothers with multiple kids, who are either new to homeschooling and need practical guidance on how to actually ‘live’ all the research they’ve just accumulated.
And for mothers who have been homeschooling a while yet constantly feel burnt out, overwhelmed and frustrated despite all the research, curricula and routines they’ve tried.
Please note: I am NOT a student of knowledge and thus this course is not about HOW to raise your children, or what to teach them specifically. This course is intended to help sisters organise and manage the practical aspects of their homeschool, as well as encourage reflective thinking that will promote a greater understanding of what homeschooling is.
