    School at home is a good option in times of coronavirus. I advise everyone who is distance learning website https://www.collegepaperworld.com/do-my-homework.html that will help with homework if you have any difficulties with distance learning.

    Re: Islamic School, Public School, or Homeschool?

    Aslaamu Alaykum

    We are planning to relocate and looking for a decent city/area to live. Kids quality Islamic education is first priority. So far I have looked at following cities

    1 - Walsall
    2 - Blackburn
    3 - Leicester
    4 - Leeds

    I`ll be commuting on weekly basis for job from UK to Europe and it will take a bit of time for me to get a decent job in UK so I need to make sure that area is secure and my wife can easily go out in Hijaab without any fear. Home Schooling is not a good option for us as my wife have health issues. In`sha Allah, my wife also planning to take Quran Tajweed classes and learn Deen.

    Any advise will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Ahmad

    I do agree that Islamic schools are not always ideal, but alhamdulillah there are some good ones out there though you may have to search far and wide to find them. Ultimately we felt that a good Islamic school was the best environment for our kids, but struggled for years to find one with the right balance between Islamic and secular studies. Our boys now go to an Islamic boarding school - I was adamant that they must be brought up in a single gender shariah-compliant environment and with good round the clock supervision to ensure development of Muslim character and behaviour. They are fully immersed in Deen, able to dress as Muslims, surrounded by other Muslims, are able to fully practice our religion with have a huge emphasis on Islamic study in their daily lives. If no good Islamic schools are available, then yes, homeschooling is the next best answer, especially if the parents have the knowledge and time and can access all the material needed. There is no way that I would send my kids to a state secular school insha'Allah - too much freemixing, misbehaviour, bullying, bad morals being taught etc.
    Jzk for your reply sister. Sorry I didn't see it earlier, I totally forgot I made a thread about this lol.
    Islamic schools are a good thing for our kids, and ideally would be something I believe would truly help our kids.
    One of the reasons I mentioned homeschooling was because in many places in the west, including the big metropolitan cities in the country where I live, there are tons of Muslim kids but no
    super strong Islamic school. Our family had to relocate for that reason. It would be a dream to find a single-gender school like the one you mentioned. The school I went to was mixed, even in high school
    and you could imagine how awkward it must have been. I hope dearly insha allah that as Muslim communities raising kids in the west we can invest more into our Islamic schools and be self-sufficient academially as a
    demographic insha allah (of Muslims).

    Just like you I've been to both public schools and Islamic schools, but never been home schooled. Growing up I've had to go back and forth between changing 6-7 schools because they weren't good.

    Just like your experience with the Islamic school, many things were different from what was expected. The only good thing was the emphasis on the prayers, apart from that no other religious studies or anything alike. I had gone to 4 different Islamic schools and they all were pretty much the same. What I liked though from the Islamic schools was that I didn't feel much different as I felt in public schools because of the hijab and the religious beliefs. Everyone knew where I came from and there was no bullying in that regards.

    In public schools, the teaching system was good, we learned a lot. But the problem was more like the kids and some teachers just because you have a different faith so the bullying was intense on that part. The other problem was the religious studies and some sex education classes we had. Changed between 3 public schools here too.

    I've read a lot about homeschooling, both the negative parts and it's positive parts, and I have mentioned it to my parents to start homeschooling our little brother if it's possible. Because honestly, he learns a lot more at home than he does at school. Because we are so much older than him, we have lots of experience and help him a lot.
    Homeschooling isn't that much popular here in Sweden and there are quite some conditions set for it.
    Yes sis, I agree with a lot of what you said. In Muslim school we tend to feel less standing out, but then the cons can be kinda surprising.
    And public school has those things you mentioned, can be hard.
    Homeschooling is seen differently in different parts of the world. In America, China, Canada and I think UK it is getting increasingly common.
    It really depends on the society like you said. Insha allah though there are alternatives and things you can do to help your future children insha allah whichever school you enroll them in insha allah.

    In high school, although I didn't notice it at the time - it was a really unIslamic environment. Young kids doing zina, gossip, bullying, islamophobia/racism, learned behaviour that stay with you even after you leave school.
    Yeah sis, homeschool is really good:up:
    Thank you for the reply, sorry I didn't reply earlier.
    If I have any kids insha allah I think I'd homeschool them.

    In America homeschooling mainly began because many religious Christian and Jewish families wanted to raise their children with not only a strong academic background, but a good religious background where they can think for themselves. That's how it evolved and I believe the same has occurred for Canada, and the Uk. It's still uncommon for minorities like us to adopt the system but that's also changing.
    I met many lovely people who learned their entire time homeschooled from many backgrounds, Latino, African-American. It's something to consider insha allah, I highly recommend it. :up:

    Lol, I really didn't even think of your blog when I wrote that, although I do love it!!!
    Your posts on the forum are plenty insightful, so I hope other brothers and sisters read them in the future.
    May Allah reward you sister, with the very best rewards fiddunyaa wal-Akhirah allaahumma ameen.
    Jazaki Allahu khayr sis!

    Ameen to your du'a! May Allah grant you much much more: )

    Sis [MENTION=125704]Figs[/MENTION] It's funny you mentioned 'productive' because I'm actually planning on changing my blog name. I don't think the word productive really suits it.
    I far from being productive, but it's definitely a goal in shaa Allah.
