Ramadan for the Muslim Mom

Remember our Ramadan blog seriesfrom last year? Alhamdulillah, we were able to provide a variety of posts for Muslim moms specifically with the common theme of Ramadan. Our topics varied–from spiritual and physical health, to Ramadan with your kids, to tasty recipes from around the world, and more–all written directly to the Muslim Mom.
As promised in the post linked above, we’re working on compiling the posts into an eBook, “The Ultimate Guide to Ramadan For The Muslim Mom,” Insha’Allah. As the title insinuates, it’s positioned to be the ideal reading companion for the Muslim Mom during our most sacred month of Ramadan, Insha’Allah.
It’s been quite an experience putting together this eBook with Ponn Sabra. I should clarify–a GREAT experience, Alhamdulillah. In almost all my posts, I reflect on how quickly time flies by and how it blows my mind. So once again, my eyes are popping when I look at the calendar and realize Ramadan is a little over a month away Insha’Allah. The time has come to really prepare for this month, and working on this eBook has given me a chance to do just that.
I’ve never co-authored an eBook before, but Khalto Ponn assured me that my year of being the editor and blog manager to her various blogs prepared me for this task. Anxious and excited, I began reading, amending, and formatting. Turned out that the typing and clicking transformed into something much greater, much deeper, and much more meaningful for me. Khalto always explains that writing is a form of ibadah (act of worship) with the right intentions, such as, being focused on Allah subhana Allahu wa Ta’ala. The task and its end product will be accepted as sadaqah jariyah (ongoing charity), Insha’Allah Ta’ala. As shown in this post, SubhanAllah, she is right. Not only is it one of my biggest writing assignments to date, it has also become one of the most rewarding.
While editing, I’m going back and reading all the tips and tricks from the posts, and it’s really getting me into the spirit of Ramadan, Alhamdulillah. Everyone needs a little bit of a spiritual retreat, and SubhanAllah, mine in a way is unfolding as I try to meet the deadline for this project.

Top 10 Reasons Why Alif Arabic Is The Ideal Qur’an and Arabic Program Online

1. Alif Arabic Accepts Girls and Women. Yes, our #1 problem with a family of 3 girls and a non-Arabic speaking wife has been to simply find a program who teaches females, and have female teachers to teach us!
2. Schedules The First Class Within 24-Hours. Since we travel so much, we need the flexibility and ability to schedule almost on-demand. While this may sound quite “demanding” to try to find a program to fit “my” crazy lifestyle; I’ve always been a mom who takes quite a while to decide to make a purchase, but when I make that purchase I want access right away. In a non-Muslim country, Qur’an and Arabic classes are in high-demand, so it always frustrated me that due to limited resources (typically human resources, and lack of know-how) to meet the growing need for flexible scheduling for classes.
3. Classes Are Available 24-Hours a Day 7-Days a Week For Students All Around the World. With a hectic travel schedule both internationally and nationally; being able to have instructors available 24-7 is absolutely awesome! I think this is very important that parents can schedule evening or weekend classes to satisfy their schoolkids’ schedule. However, I prefer normal business hours and the least busy times of the day which are rarely available from in-demand Arabic or Qur’an tutors because they are typically teaching in schools during those times. Most online programs, even if they publicize “great availability”, at time of scheduling they could never accommodate me. I know that Alif Arabic even has students in the UK, and Australia, alhumdulilah. Note: Students must be at least 6 years of age.
4. Many Highly-Trained Male and Female Qur’an and Arabic Instructors.Keyword = Trained. I specifically did not use the word “Qualified”, because instructors may have titles showing that they know the Qur’an or Arabic language, but have no teaching experience or training in being a teacher.
  • Native Arabic Speakers - The greatest advantage of a Native Arabic speaker is the natural pronunciation of letters and words. However, often a teacher’s dialect and accent gets in the way of teaching fusha Arabic. Fortunately, all three of our teachers are either scholars or well-taught in Qur’an; thereby making their Arabic ideal and nearly perfect. We had many Egyptian teachers both in the States and in Egypt itself, and often they are great Qur’an teachers but poor Arabic teachers. We have not found this to be the case at all with the Alif Arabic instructors.
  • Arabic Instructors Have Excellent English. While finding a good Native Arabic-speaking teacher is difficult, finding one (let alone 3 or more) who have a good grasp of the English language is extremely difficult! My girls explain in great detail in their Alif Arabic review here. They explain how frustrating it is to have your Arabic teacher correct you in English the “exact” translation in English which is in poor, broken, unnatural, or incorrect English. It is one of my husband’s and my greatest pet peeves in learning another language. We want all our girls to be fluent in their reading and writing that they will be able to translate English to Arabic and vice versa. So, if you are to translate “al-bint al-hilwah” to “the girl, the pretty” it would be awkward and wrong. It’s “the pretty girl”. In almost every single case, overseas and in the States, an Arabic teacher would take offense or say we were wrong to correct them and insist it’s “the girl pretty” and simply take out the second article “the” to prove they know both languages better. We often witness that arrogance get in the way of a decent Arabic teacher, rather than pride in helping someone learn their native tongue.
  • Instructors Love Their Work. The best of teachers love to teach their greatest passions. It’s so obvious that our three teachers love the Qur’an and the Arabic language, and love teaching it effortlessly. We’ve found many times in the States, an Arabic teacher is a teacher by default, a native-Arabic speaker who’s trying to fill the void of an Arabic teaching position;so they’re just doing their job–and quite poorly. However, this is definitely not the case for our Alif Arabic instructors.
  • Instructors are Determined To Have Their Students Succeed By First Loving What They Are Learning. Alif Arabic teachers are encouraging, motivating, and happy throughout all of our lessons. They are extremely patient during the most difficult lessons too. Never once have my girls or I felt stupid, or ashamed of our mistakes, or even hesitant in trying in fear of possibly sounding idiotic. They all want us to succeed; and this stems from their pure dedication to these subjects, not as a job. We are very fortunate that we have some of their most experienced instructors–all whom you can feel a profound love for Allah subhan Allahu wa Ta’ala. I find that my girls and I are first to laugh at our own mistakes to lighten the mistake…never have any of our teachers laughed, so we know they’d never laugh “at” us. They quickly remark with encouraging words and politely say “try again” or “listen to me”. The amount of patience and pleasantries that are extended by all three instructors to all four of us is remarkable and highly unusual for both Qu’ran and Arabic instructors we’ve ever encountered. Again, we’ve have dozenS of instructors too. Masha Allah, Alif Arabic instructors are ideal!
5. Comprehensive Curriculum with well-paced assessments.
  • Arabic. The curriculum focuses on Modern Conversational Arabic, with certain benchmarks in Grammar, Listening, Reading and Writing. The first class is dedicated to assessing the student’s abilities. Depending upon your level of Arabic, the class is used with a mix of Arabic and English; however there is emphasis in your correction comprehension of the language so you are able to translate what you are speaking or reading.

  • Qur’an. My girls and I studied with an incredible tutor 6-days a week in Gaza this past Winter and we returned determined not to let our momentum drop. Masha Allah, we were very fortunate to have 1 of the 2 Shaikhs who has an ijaza and can give an ijaza for them. Masha Allah, to work with one of these Shaikhs the student must be serious and more advanced, as their time is very valuable. Masha Allah, the older two have been accomplishing amazing things with him during our short 2-weeks. However, he has formed an incredible relationship with our youngest which literally has brought her love, devotion, and abilities to a whole new level. Always the “cute youngest one” who can get away with slipping on homework, or just being passed off with the same surahs over and over again; Shaikh has found a way to encourage her to reach levels we all know possible. My girls have the utmost respect for him (as they do all their Qur’an teachers, many having been Shaikhs, Hafiz, etc.); however, they marvel at his most beautiful recitation of the Qur’an. They love his immense level of patience we have never seen in any Imam, Hafiz or Shaikh who teaches Qur’an to kids EVER before! Just like default Arabic instructors, its obvious when an Imam doesn’t want, like or know how to teach to kids. We’ve seen, heard, and watch screaming, hitting Imams both overseas and here in the States! All my girls are eager to please him with very strict homework but given in the most kind voice and tone (mashaAllah). They’ve always known that their goal is first to please Allah and their parents. However, they “feel” they can really do it with the help of this Shaikh, and we envision a lifelong relationship with him; insha Allah. My female instructor, masha Allah, helps me move faster than I’ve ever moved in 2-days’ work simply because she has an immense amount of patience, she allows me to move at my pace, and she teaches and corrects me until we perfect it together.:-D
6. Fun, Interactive, Personalized, Student-Paced One-On-One Classes. Having some very bad experiences this past Winter in 3 different Arab countries learning Arabic and working with Muslims; sadly to say my girls were really turned off by the Arabic language. They resented it for many reasons, and I totally empathize with them because they were ridiculed and bullied by Arab-speaking Muslim children and adults–something that would NOT happen here in the U.S…or at least, it NEVER happened by non-Muslims here to us in the U.S.! Anyways, aware that they must learn Allah’s language and obey their parents; they went through the steps simply to “get the job done”. Having experienced Umrah helped them maintain their Qur’an, but wanting to keep a language of people who hurt them the most was not a pleasurable thing. Knowing Arabic is a desired language for the Ivies somewhat encouraged them; and knowing we have a “private language” when we’re in public and want to talk privately kept it alive a bit too. However, the past 2-months have been more difficult–until meeting Alif Arabic. They actually look forward to Arabic!The biggest compliment I can share is: They Want More Arabic Classes! The girls and I agreed that 3-days a week of Arabic is more than enough, especially if they get homework. You must remember, we’re not traditional homeschoolers, so taking 5-days-a-week classes of anything besides Qur’an is an atypical regime for us.
  • Fun & Interactive. They are not bored at all. The 30-minutes goes by so fast. They’re reading, speaking, listening, writing notes, and can’t wait to start using their Writing Pad. I already started using the Writing Pad.
  • Well-paced. All of us are where we feel is appropriate, and the assessments were right on target! ;-)
  • One-on-One Skype Webcast. The full 30-minutes is dedicated just to one single person. No sharing time with other classmates, wasting time, or falling asleep. Note: All you need is a computer with Internet access, and a free Skype account.
  • Monthly Reports. One service only AlifArabic offers is their fully-translated Arabic-to-English monthly progress report for each student. While we haven’t received one, on the first day the Shaikh and his wife talked to me. Once the Shaikh had one issue with 2 of my daughters and the next day, they came back over-pleasing him, alhumdulilah. So, even an extra minute here and there between the teacher and parent was extremely helpful!
7. Acceptable Cancellation and Reschedule Policy. When we started, I informed Customer Service of my anticipated week off. They have a generous 72-hour cancellation and reschedule policy. Since I gave them weeks’ notice, and informed them that I most definitely can give them 48-hours notice, once I reported my ~60 hours notice, we were able to cancel all classes and were not penalized. They have room for emergencies, and have a strict tardiness policy. In most cases both the instructors and the four of us have all be well-prepared and early/on-time for class, alhumdulilah.
8. Professional Business Designed To Meet A Great Demand. As I mentioned earlier, there’s a huge demand for Qur’an and Arabic teaching services, however I’ve talked to about three different programs like Alif Arabic over the past 3 years, and never able to find time, a female instructor, or qualified instructor. Also, having an average American family size of 3 kids, and my interest in learning as well; balancing 4 students for 2 different classes is quite difficult. However, with the 24-hour scheduling, the 24-7 classes availability, and all the above reasons–Alif Arabic is by far the very best online program I can find for my own family let alone to recommend to you. The best part is, they even found me (just like 2 of the 3 of their competitors did). Now, since they approached me given my strict desires in the “ideal” program, I had the pleasure  to speak and work directly with their Head Director, Head of Marketing, and Head of Ambassador program. I assure you, Alif Arabic and their staff is committed to pleasing their clients and growing their brand.
  • Customer Service Oriented. Their customer service reps work 24-7 as well; and they are incredible! They make all the scheduling possible. If you made it this far–you know scheduling and rescheduling my family’s classes must be crazy. I’m just happy they’re making it all possible–subhan Allah, with our preferred instructors. I know we’re early in the game, so my biggest recommendation is: Get In Now! We already built life-long relationships; and we’re all committed to keeping our present instructors even with our 3-hour time difference change.
  • Lofty Goals. I’m so happy for Alif Arabic, alhumdulilah. They just secured a federal grant, because they are employing Egyptian employees post-revolution. They have Lofty Goals of Multiplying their present student base of ~220 students worldwide and ~2-dozen instructors by A Lot by the end of this year! And, I want to help them; don’t you? We’ll all gain from it too! More in the bonus section below.
9. Most Affordable. I’m extremely frugal…one of the biggest reasons we stayed overseas for 4-months rather than 1: because it’s so much cheaper to learn Arabic and Qur’an there–often free. However, if you read above–free is not necessarily the best at all! When compared to their competitors, there’s no competition! For the amount of hours offered–the rates are low. MUCH lower than my private tutors; AND nothing compared to an evening or weekend class with untrained, over-stuffed classes for both Qur’an AND Arabic, because these are all one-on-one classes.

We know will be continue to use their services as I, personally, have big goals in mind and have been working on side-projects that will only make their services even better and more marketable. I’m offering my expertise, and personal time because I feel its all a service to Allah subahan Allahu wa Ta’ala. I’m also enjoying these incredible lifelong relationships with the various staff during our short time working with them–all because I took the first step and said “Yes” to letting Alif Arabic enter our home on a daily basis! Won’t you let them enter your homes?
Honestly, you have nothing to loose and everything to gain! With Ramadan around the corner, wouldn’t it be an awesome accomplishment to say Ramadan 2012 was so memorable for me because I was able to Read and Recite Qur’an based on the rules of Tajweed–all because I choose to invest in myself AND my kids by using AlifArabic!? Feel free to ask any questions or share any concerns you may have in the comments alone.

ou may have noticed that we have an awesome new partner and sponsor Alif Arabic, as demonstrated by this incredibly cool new personalized flash button by our very own in-house KidBloggersClub Digital Design Services.
Anyways, my girls and I have been taking Qur’an and Arabic for about 2-weeks now full-time; and absolutely love their services! As you know we are a very mobile family; in the past 4-years we have not been in 1 city, state or country for more than 4-months at a time. We recently returned from a 6-month trip to Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Gaza; and in just the past 3-weeks we have been in 5-states (and NOT just “passing by” them; we stayed days and nights traveling as tourists or visiting extended family).
The purpose of sharing our extremely hectic schedule is to emphasize two things:
(1) We’ve tried MANY Qur’an and Arabic programs, class-settings (ie. private tutors, immersion overseas, small group classes, etc.) and curriculum,
(2) Consistency is difficult in both their Qur’anic and Arabic studies because of our mobile lifestyle.

Starting with Alif Arabic

To put our review in perspective, I will share our present status when we started with Alif Arabic 2 weeks ago:
Arabic Background: Alhumdulilah, the girls and I are very comfortable shopping overseas by ourselves, and holding conversations in Arabic. The girls have traveled to over a half-dozen Arab countries, regardless of the dialect, everyone thinks our oldest 2 are fluent in Arabic. They know how to adapt to Palestinian, Egyptian and Saudi Arabian Arabic; but when they are in other countries, they use fusha Arabic to communicate. Our youngest speaks comfortably with kids (who all think she’s fluent), but with teachers and adults she’s less comfortable. While our girls have taken classes in formal writing and reading; I  never took any formal or informal Arabic classes. I learned conversational Arabic from living overseas for collectively 3-years.
Qur’an Background: Two of my 3 girls have been taught the Qur’an with arkam, the rules of Tajweed since they were very young. The youngest and I were just taught arkam for the first time this past year in Gaza. I do not focus on memorization; my goal is to read the Qur’an correctly according to the rules of Tajweed.
How Many Lessons We’ve Taken So Far: As of today, my girls had 7.5 hours of Qur’an; 30-minutes a day 5-days a week each; 2 hours of Arabic 30-minutes a day 3-days a week each. I have taken 3 hours of Qur’an and 3 hours of Arabic classes. 45-minutes a day 2-days a week.

2 sentence Creed

Creed is the basis and foundation for the other pillars of Islam. Creed is the spirit, essence and foundation of all Islamic teachings. Every person who entered / converted to Islam must first read the sentence creed. Creed Syahadatain often called because it consists of two sentences (in Arabic means two sentences Syahadatain Creed). The second sentence is the creed: 
1. An Asyhadu-Laa ilaha illallah, 

2. wa Asyhadu Anna Muhammadar rasulullah, 

The first sentence indicates the recognition of monotheism. That is, a Muslim trust only Allah SWT as the only God Almighty pledged So with the first sentence for a Muslim to establish himself to make only Allah SWT as goals, motivation, and way of life. 
The second sentence indicates the recognition that the Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of Allâh. With this sentence pledged to establish himself a Muslim to believe in Allâh teachings as conveyed through Muhammad, 

How many times a day and a night we are required to read the creed ... ... ... ..? 
His answer that there are two nine times lo ... .. How can ... ... .. ??
First: we Muslims are required to read two-sentence confession of faith as much as nine times a day and night, its implementation is in the amount tahiyat in prayer as we know in the literature there are two sentence tahiyat creed is not ...!? So if we count 
1. Dawn first time reading the creed tahiyat = 1 times 
2. Dhuhr, ashar, maghrib, and the evening 'two times each creed: 2 x 4 = 8 
From the number above in mind that we must read the creed nine times a day and night. 
Sentence content Creed 
• Pledge 
The pledge is a statement of a Muslim about what we are saying diyakininya.Ketika syahadah sentence, then we have an obligation to uphold and fight for what we promised it. 
• Oath 
Creed is also meaningful oath. Someone who swore, meant he was willing to accept the consequences and risks in the practice of any such oath. That is, for a Muslim that means ready and responsible for upholding the rule of Islam and Islamic teachings. 
• Appointments 
Creed also significant promise. That is, every Muslim is a person who promised faithfully to hear and obey in all things to all commands of Allah SWT, which is contained in the Qur'an and Sunnah. 
Terms Creed 
Calligraphy writing creed 
Terms creed is something that without the existence of disyaratkannya then it is not perfect. So if someone say two sentences creed without fulfilling the terms, it can be said syahadatnya invalid. 
Terms of creed, there are 7 (seven), namely: 
• Knowledge 
Someone must have knowledge of bersyahadat syahadatnya. He is obliged to understand the contents of the two sentences which he declared that, as well as willing to accept the consequences of his words. 
• Confidence 
Bersyahadat someone must know perfectly the meaning of the creed without the slightest doubt on that meaning. 
• sincerity 
Ikhlas means net heart of everything that contrary to the meaning of the creed. Speech riya creed or mixed with a certain tendency will not be accepted by Allah SWT. 
• Honesty 
Honesty is the fit between words and actions. The statement must be declared with a verbal confession of faith, believed in the liver, and is actualized in charitable deeds. 
• Lovely 
Means to love God and love for His messenger and those who believe. Love must also be accompanied with anger anger toward everything that is contrary to the creed, or in other words, all the science and charity that violates the Sunnah Rasulullah SAW. 
• Reception 
Acceptance means the acceptance heart of everything that comes from God and His Messenger. And this should be led to obedience and worship to Allah SWT, by believing that nothing could save him except teaching guides and coming from the Islamic Shari'a. That is, for a Muslim there is no other option except the Holy Qur'an and Sunnah. 
• Submission 
Submission is submission and surrender to Allah and His Messenger as is necessary. That is, a Muslim who bersyahadat must practice all his command and leave all of his ban. The difference between the proceeds and the submission is that the revenue made by the liver, while the submission made by fisik.Oleh Therefore, every Muslim who bersyahadat always ready to carry the Islamic teachings in their life. 
Meaning for the Muslim Shahada 
For adherents of the religion of Islam, Creed has a meaning as follows: 
1. entrance to Islam; legal conditions of faith is by bersyahadatain (witness the two sentences syahadah) 
2. the essence of Islamic teachings, the principal of the teachings of Islam is syahadatain, as teachings that brought the prophets and Rosul-rosul previous 
3. foundation of faith, building faith and Islam is actually standing on two sentences syahadah 
4. distinguishing between Muslims and infidels, which is in respect of the rights and obligations of the Shari'a] to be received or paid by a person after he uttered two sentences syahadah


sholaah" which means shalat.While understanding by the term Islamicshalat is a religious charity that consists of the sayings and deeds that starts with theTakbir and end with regards to the conditions and the pillars tertentu.Sholat an obligation for every Muslim five times a day and night. Command first time rill shalat delivered to Prophet Muhammad when he was Isra 'and Ascension directly from Allah SWT. This is described in the following hadith: 

Prophet said: Allah Almighty has obliges over my people on the night of Isra 'pray fifty times, so I selallu back to face him and pleaded liability waivers be made so that the shalat five times a day and night. "(Reported by al-Bukhari and Muslim). 

"O ye who believe! Ruku'lah you, prostrate yourselves, worship your Lord and do good deeds, so that you get a victory." (Surat al-Hajj: 77) 
"And be steadfast in shalat, give regular Charity, and ruku'lah with those who are bowing." (Surat al-Baqara: 43). 

Shalat worship is worship of the first count in the reckoning, as thehadeeth of the Messenger of the following: 

"Charity is the first time that a slave brought to account on the Day of Judgement is shalat. 
If the shalat of good deeds then let all the others, and if shalatanya damaged then corrupted all the other charity. "(Narrated by At-Thabrani) 

Shalat is also a means of erasing mistakes and sins. In a hadithstated as follows: 

From Abu Hurairah ra, who said: Rasulullah SAW said: "Shalat and praying five times a week that one to the other Friday shalat is as eraser error that occurred on Friday during the time between the two did not do a great sin." 
Mandatory Conditions Shalat 

Understanding "the pen has been lifted from three cases, namely from the kids so she grew up (Baligh), from now sleep so he woke up from a madman and so she is well again." (Narrated by AbuDawood and Ibn Majah). 
There was a hearing, which means children who were born deaf (deaf) is not obliged to do shalat. 
Holy of menstruation and childbirth. 
Until the Islamic da'wah to him. 
Terms sah Shalat 

Hadats sacred from either small or hadats hadats big. 
The sacred body, clothing and shalat from the unclean.

Shalat time has been signed, which means that unauthorized entry when done yet time to pray or has timed out. 
Facing mecca. 
Pillars of Shalat 

Pillars can also be called fardhu. The difference between the terms and harmony is that the requirement is something that must exist in an act of charity work deeds of worship before it was done, while the pillars or fardhu understanding is something that must exist in a work / deeds in the time of execution of a job / these deeds 

Shalat are 13 pillars, namely:
