Joy of Homeschooling.

It's been almost 10 months since we started homeschooling. And I have found many developments in them. Especially, the younger one. She couldn't read nor write both English and Arabic(she knew some Japanese letters, though) when we started out, but now she can read some short Quran verses in Arabic, and she is actually reading some easy English sentences, and her handwriting got much better, mashaAllah. And she memorizes suwar quicker than before. I'm actually surprised by her development, subuhanAllah.

The older one, of course, has learned a lot, too. She can read English books more fluently now, and she can read most of the Quran verses in Arabic. I teach her Tajweed rules by color, so she follows that when reciting, and she recites beautifully, mashaAllah. And she has memorized the whole Juz amma, and now working on Juz Tabarak.

So two of them have shown many developments, and I feel very happy to see them like that. Especially when I listen to them reciting Quran, my heart shivers with joy. Alhumdulillah, and subuhanAllah, it's nothing but Allah's work! Of course, it's true that I need much sabr(patience) sometimes when teaching children myself, but the joy and the reward are countless, and I really love homeschooling. I do hope that Allah would let me continue to homeschool our children, inshaAllah. And I always have to remind myself of renewing the niyah of homeschooling. It should be for Allah's sake only, nothing else!! Ya Allah, give our children good knowlege and characters and strong imaan so they can benefit the Islamic society in the future, Ameen...
