Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullah sis, I’m happy to ‘see’ you here.
I’m Umm Saleh, and I help Muslim homeschool mothers simplify, manage and regain their focus in their homeschool so they can homeschool with happiness in sha Allah.
As a homeschool mother of four, striving to raise my children upon the Qur’an and Sunnah upon the understanding of the salaf as-saalih. avid writer, coffee enthusiast, fully embraced introvert, and homeschooling for almost ten years, I know homeschooling can be tough.
Because though the blog is called ‘Happy Muslim Homeschool, my journey into homeschooling was pretty rocky to say the least.
I added too much into our day way to soon.
I thought everything had to be fun and exciting to be worthwhile.
I burdened myself doing things that really weren’t necessary.
Qaddara Allahu wa ma sha’a fa’al.
But after much trial and error, I realised that something had to change. And I guess, that’s when my journey into simplifying things around me really started. But not the process of just decluttering the kitchen cupboards; but also decluttering the choices I had made in my child’s education so we could actually live the vision I had for our Muslim homeschool which prioritises our deen and then also teach academics efficiently; not for it just be scribbled on a mission statement printable in my planner somewhere.
And that’s why I’m so passionate about helping my fellow sisters homeschool happily. Because though its tough, we know that it will be OH SO WORTH IT in sha Allah.
So, If you’re a Muslim homeschool mother…
-feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of resources,
–struggling to meet the needs of your different aged children,
-feel pressured to follow a homeschool approach,
–battling between the stack of dishes and the stack of books,
-and constantly feel tempted by all things Pinterest…
I’m so glad you stumbled across my tiny little drop in the internet ocean.
Because homeschooling, though tough, doesn’t have to mean ANY OF THE ABOVE.
You can homeschool
✔without following a homeschool approach,
✔can still prioritise Islamic studies whilst giving academics attention,
✔and implement simple systems in your home to streamline things in sha Allah.
On the blog you’ll find printables, articles, resources, as my homeschool course designed specifically for Muslim mothers as well as my recently launched private community, The Muslim Home and School Maker Membership.
So, no matter what stage of homeschooling you’re in, I’m hoping you’ll find some support from my homeschool to yours. I’m just a mother a few years into her homeschooling journey sharing tips I’ve learnt along the way, yet still learning all the time.
May Allah make our efforts successful, ameen.
