Dear Brothers and Sisters, Followers, and Readers of Pearls of Jannah:
As-Salamu’alaikum wa RahmatULLAHi Wa Barakatuh.
I want to express my sincerest apologies to everyone for the unusually long delay in posting here. I have been extremely busy at my job and my wife has been busy with homeschooling, as well as continuing to look after her ongoing health issues.
That being said, we want everyone to know that your loyalty means a lot to us, and we will continue to post and provide content to our site, in an effort to help Muslim families who are looking to homeschool their children, or supplement their children’s education with material that we provide. It is my intention InshaALLAH to post once a week, and it is my du’a that I am able to maintain this on a consistent basis. If for some reason there is a delay that is inevitable, I will also do my best to give everyone advanced notice so as to not mislead anyone.
We continue to homeschool our children on a daily basis, and our commitment to this approach to educating our children has not changed in the least. Seeing how we have sheltered our children from the tremendous amount of haram that children are exposed to on a daily basis, unsupervised in public schools has only re-enforced our feelings towards this path. By no means is homeschooling simple or easy. It requires a tremendous amount of sacrifice, resources, time, and commitment from the parents. However, it is not impossible, and the rewards that one sees after making this investment is priceless. It is not an ideal or flawless method, as there definitely are compromises that we as parents must make. However, we must all recognize that there will be compromises to be made with every approach. The question then becomes which compromises are you willing to make and accept? For us, and for many families, the compromises that we must make by sending children to public schools are too much, which is why homeschooling gave us the best alternative that we could provide, given our limited resources. AlhamduLILLAH, we are quite happy with the results so far, and we hope to keep moving in this direction.
We encourage everyone to please continue to visit our site, and send us any questions, or comments you may have.
On behalf of my wife and myself, I want to once again apologize for taking so long to post, and thank everyone for their loyalty, and support.
May ALLAH protect you and your families, and have Mercy on all of you, Ameen.
