  2. Wa alaikum salaam

    Thanks, I enjoy reading your’s also.

  3. Assalam’alaykum, i’m married to an egyptian guy and we’ve planned to live in egypt sometime in the near future. i know lots about egypt and seeing your blog and seeing that yur a homeschooler also was really nice! I am really into homeschooling as well. who knows..maybe we’ll run into eachother some day.


  4. Wa alalikum salaam

    Good to see you ummabdullah. Drop me a line if you do move to Egypt!

  5. How do you manage to homeschool in egypt and also what method do you use, if any?

    What outside activities have you incorporated to make sure your kids get ‘out’ also?

    Please give us an idea of how its done there. I can understand how I might do it in the US but i have no idea how i might homeschool in a muslim country.

  6. Assalaam alaikum

    Homeschooling in Egypt is definately more challenging, but it can be done. We mostly go to visit friends so they can play. I take the kids to the park to ride their bikes. Even the mall is considered an ‘outing.’ There are actually plenty of other places, historical or fun, inshallah I’ll write more about them later in a post. Oh boy, you shouldn’t have gotten me started, I can talk for days about homeschooling.

  7. Assalamu ‘alaikum

    I love your ‘about’. Concise and simple. If I could describe myself so succinctly I’d be a happier woman hehe…

    You express yourself eloquently. I love that too! 🙂

  8. Wa alaikum salaam Bubbles

    Jazakillahkhair and thanks for stopping by. I do tend to be reticent in speech as well as print (my husband would probably disagree!). I’d think that the ability to be verbose would be an asset for a writer though? Hope to talk with you again. Wassalaam

  9. Hi,
    we just arrived in Cairo. I have a 4 year old and a 5-nearly 6 year old that I’m starting to homeschool this year. I too am using The well trained mind as my inspiration. It would be great to get in touch with you!

    Sis I enjoyed reading about your experiences with hijama and would love to purchase my own equipment after learning the technique. Insha Allah I am planning to make hijrat to Egypt in a few weeks. Insha Allah I would love to keep communicating with you. Subhanallah, I love your blogsite. Insha Allah, I would like to start one myself when I get there and would like some assistance in doing so if you don’t mind. May Allah SWT reward us for our efforts to please Him…amin
