Question In The Comments

Anonymous said:

Salam wa alaykum sis,

Are you using stories of the world by safia Iqbal for history? If not could you please tell what you use? I been wanting to find someone who wasnt using story of the world by the well trained mind author




Wa alaikum as salaam,

Yes, I am using Safia Iqbal's. I do skip around a bit because I see that she has bits and pieces of topics in other books in the series. I am trying to cover Ancient History this year and next year, InshaAllah we will continue with seerah in a more in-depth way, along with the Middle Ages.

I don't mind following the Well-Trained Mind's study sequence, i.e.

Time Periods:
Ancients
Medieval
Early Modern
Modern

For Science:
Biology/Classification/Human Body
Earth Science/Astronomy
Chemistry
Physics/Computer Science

These are done in four-year cycles. We're a bit off but it's still early....

I plan to give a more in-depth look at what we will do next year very soon, InshaAllah. Right now, I am taking classes with the Student's Guild of Al Kauthar, Arabic four days a week and the Women Only FiQh course twice a week via The Fiks so my time is really limited. InshaAllah I hope to take this blog to the next level soon, so make du'a for me.

AlhamduLILLAH, they are going well. I have learned so much in a relatively short period of time. It's certainly challenging and we are kept on our toes because what we learn, we have to teach to the newer students (pressure!). However, this is good because it enables me to pass the knowledge along to my children in a precise, cohesive manner (finally!).

Take care,
wa salaam,
Nakia
