We have been unschooling but haven’t had the time to update on what we have been doing.
Alhamdulillah, by the Blessed Permission of Allah (Swt), my husband and I have been invited to Allah’s House and are leaving in a week’s time to perform our first ever Hajj.
My heart is absolutely breaking as I am leaving my 3 precious sprouts behind. A beautiful home edding sister with 8 children of her own mashaAllah will be looking after my children and I feel so happy and content that they will be with her and her lovely family. But I think now that I have my passport back and with so much to do in the next 7 days, my heart feels like it is being ripped into tiny little pieces. They are with me 24/7. We do so much together and I may not return…
I am in the process of writing my will and I ask Allah to return me to my children after I inshaAllah complete my Hajj.
This blog was started in December 2007. It will almost be 4 years that I have been blogging about home ed and life. Those who have been following the blog will know me quite well. You witnessed the birth of my two youngest: Z and Y. You joined me on the rocky road towards my VBA2C (vaginal birth after 2 c-sections) which ended in a wonderful natural water birth mashaAllah with baby Y. You saw me start off as structured, lean towards semi structured and experiment with unschooling. You read my frustrations and my joys. And by Allah ummihomeschoolsme would not be ummihomeschoolsme without your comments, support and advice/words of wisdom.
Should something happen to me whilst I am there, I ask you all to please forgive me (those of you who know me in person, those of you who know me online and those of you who are silent readers. Please forgive me if I ever blogged about something that caused you discomfort, pain or upset.
If Allah has written that my soul will be taken whilst I am there, then please remember my 3 beautiful children mashaAllah in your duas and the guardians I have entrusted them to. I ask you all to remember me in your duas should I die. And to share ummihomeschoolsme posts like mad after my death so that it may act as a sadaqa jariah for me. Ameen. 🙂
I leave you all in the care of Allah (Swt). May Allah truly bless you all in your roles as mothers and as home educators. Ameen.
With love and duas,
Umm Raiyaan x
