***This is not a paid advertisement*** Even during difficult times, we’ve kept up with our studies. We added a new and delightful method of learning to our curriculum a few weeks ago and my husband and I have been pleased with the results, MashaAllah.

Our apricots are not the same as your apricots, and your apricots are not the same as our apricots. When your apricots were ripe, our apricots were not ripe yet.

We’re keeping busy over here after Ramadan – I don’t want to lose the momentum since we were so productive. I’ve tried to be mindful of our Arabic use in the house. A few days ago I was asked what I am using to learn and teach Arabic and admittedly, I’m not tied down to one resource. MashaALLAH, I’ve been given a lot of resources over the past few years and I am doing my best to take the really crucial parts from each. You can take a look at some of them and decide for yourself if you would find any of them useful. There are so many different Arabic learning materials out there, AlhamduLILLAH and I have only now discovered that you can buy them all but if you don’t use them in your every day life, you won’t learn Arabic!
AlhamduLILLAH, it has turned out to be quite a productive Ramadan. The decorations were set up, thanks to all of the sisters who have contributed to Islamic Bulletin Boards, including Umm Abdul Basir’s good deed stars and a family portrait, lol. We quickly ran out of room for the stars, MashaALLAH since everyone was eager to outdo one another in good deeds. The mosque is the same one from Sister Farhana’s blog, scroll down to “Mosque money box”. (more…)
