Welcome to Mommy Muslim! Every mother knows that raising children can be exhilarating, exhausting, challenging, hilarious and just plain hard work.  On the days when you see and feel the rewards, the joy can be overwhelming.  On the days when you experience the lows, that too, can be overwhelming.  As a homeschool mom, I have added one more job to my list of “mom” jobs. (Mom jobs: doctor, nurse, teacher, tutor, referee, chef, housekeeper, arbitrator, counselor, etc.  If you are a mom, you know the list is long!) But voluntarily I added one more, because apparently  those 100 other jobs just weren’t enough. LOL.  Educating my children has enriched and strengthened our relationship.  And I feel blessed that Allah has allowed me the opportunity to do it.

It has been a journey.  I hope to share my journey, lessons and resources as both an educator and mom.  I look forward to you sharing with me as well. InshaaAllah (God willing) we will learn and grow together! Be sure to join my Facebook group: Mommy Muslim to continue the conversation!


May Peace and Blessings be (forever) upon you and your family. Ameen.

Do Muslims Celebrate Halloween?

Some people believe that this holiday started as a Celtic pagan practice to ward off evil spirits at the start of the new year.
