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.
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.
