Teaching Islamic History with Charlotte Mason + Book List

Charlotte Mason

Charlotte Mason emphasises the importance of well-written and inspiring books, or ‘Living Books’. Parents find themselves scrambling for recommendations and booklists for their children’s subjects. When we get to history, the book search becomes even harder. Not because we can’t find decent books, but there are so many to choose from, it’s difficult to know which books will suit our family values. As Muslim parents, we need books which portray other than the Western world’s view of history.

How to read like Charlotte Mason

The Charlotte Mason method places living books as its central focus when educating children. When they cannot read a book for themselves, it should be read aloud to them. In exposing children to a nutritious diet of elegant literature and wholesome prose, they can absorb knowledge and maintain it. 

By gradually reading decent books, children develop knowledge and intelligence by making important connections in the material they are exposed to. The beauty of Charlotte Mason’s approach to education lies in its simplicity. Being exposed to a superb selection of books is all your child needs for an enjoyable and successful education. 

How to choose Charlotte-Mason-approved books 

One of the most common questions when starting the Charlotte Mason method is: “What is a living book?”

A living book is a book which is:

  • well-written
  • provides children with new ideas
  • a book your child finds enjoyable
  • inspiring and impacts the reader
  • literary in style, where possible. (However, they do not always have to be stories)

Now, this is why it is often difficult to narrow down a solid list of living books; because it will look different for every child. Where one child may find the ‘Just So Stories’ by Rudyard Kipling delightful and entertaining, another child might find them boring and difficult to understand. 

However, well-written books are easier to identify among the bookshelves in a store or library. Finding living books is a skill you develop over time, so try not to get too overwhelmed in the early stages.

Does Charlotte Mason include Islamic history?

When researching the Charlotte Mason book lists, it can be easy to assume the history curriculum doesn’t favour an Islamic look at history. Some of the books appear to favour an Anglo-Saxon version of events, complete with the wonder of the British Empire and the valiant efforts of the crusaders. 

Charlotte Mason

However, it is important to remember that the Charlotte Mason approach is an educational philosophy, not a boxed-and-ready curriculum. You don’t have to purchase the book lists from her schools in order to benefit from her teaching advice. There is an entire world of published books to embrace, so feel free to go out for yourself and find books which suit your children and your family.

Living books inspire children, preferably in a literary way. We can easily apply this principle to Islamic books and tailor our history lessons to suit our Islamic values. Remember, we’re not looking for textbooks, and we’re not looking for books which display disjointed facts and condensed learning objectives. 

Reading and your Book of Centuries

As well as living books, a Book of Centuries will prove to be an invaluable resource. After reading a passage from a history book, help your children find the correct timeline page. They can write or draw something to represent what they heard when you were reading. Find out more about using a Book of Centuries here:

RELATED: Muslim Homeschool Curriculum – How to Use a Book of Centuries.

The Our Muslim Homeschool Book of Centuries comes with the added bonus of extra pages during the timeline of the Prophet Muhammad SAW. This gives you space to dedicate extra details to that important period and dive into the lifetime of the prophet in fun and engaging way. It also includes a timeline featuring some important dates in Islamic history from 570CE – 1924CE. Purchase yours here [link to the Amazon listing].  

Like most history lessons, it can be difficult to keep the seerah engaging for your children.

What Does School Really Teach our Children? | Homeschooling UK

Homeschooling UK

A good education for our children is every parent’s concern and priority. We have been schooled to think of “success” as synonymous with, or at least dependent upon, “schooling”. However, as Muslim parents homeschooling in the UK, have we’ve lost sight and understanding of what a good education truly means?

Homeschooling UK

In Episode 75 of the Raising Mums podcast, I talk about how we can instill good character in our children.

Key Points:

  • The Quran and Prophet ﷺ spoke extensively about the importance of good character.
  • Although individual teachers may try, the school system school has other priorities over developing noble character traits.
  • Children lead double lives, not just externally, but internally also.
  • When we homeschool, we can priority character, without sacrificing their academic performance.

The key to the immediate success of our children in this world, and their ultimate success in the next is our parental responsibility to ensure we nurture balanced, honest human beings who live lives based on principle and who exemplify good character in their dealings with other people.

Hadith about Good Character

The Prophet ﷺ once declared, “I have been sent to perfect noble character.” (Sunan Al-Bayhaqee: 21301) 

The Prophet ﷺ said, “Righteousness (birr) is good character.” (Sahih Muslim: 2553)

The servant does not attain the reality of faith until he loves for people what he loves for himself of goodness. (Ṣaḥīḥ Ibn Ḥibbān 235, Grade: Sahih)

No human being will enter Paradise if there is as much as the weight of a seed of arrogance in his heart. (Musnad Aḥmad 7015, Grade: Sahih)

What makes a Book Un-Islamic? Choosing Books for Muslim Kids

books for muslim kids

Our religion values reading since the first verse revealed to our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was “read” from surah Al-Alaq. Reading is an important part of a homeschooling life and the primary means of gaining knowledge. Children are like sponges and absorb everything they are exposed to. Everything they read will read influences their heart, their way of thinking, and beliefs. This is why it’s crucial for parents to make sure that the children read only good and worthy books.

books for muslim kids

In Episode 74 of the Raising Mums podcast, Ustadha Mehded Maryam Sinclair shares her insight and wisdom in picking books for the Muslim child. This audio recording was a response to a question asked after her masterclass with the mums of Launch Your Homeschool.

Mehded Maryam Sinclair is an American writer, teacher, performing artist and student living in Istanbul where she studies, researches, and teaches the lives of the prophets known in the Qur’an to families all over the globe. She helps to inspire Muslim families to love their religion by telling them vivid stories that nourish their hearts. She is the author of two award-winning books, When Wings Expand and Miraculous Happenings in the Year of the Elephant, and A Trust of Treasures, as well as five audiobooks, A Mercy to the Worlds, The Bowing of the Stars, The Fall of the Tyrant, Take Heed, and Scents of Paradise. She has narrated classical Qur’anic stories to thousands of live listeners in the US, the UK, Turkey, Jordan, Pakistan, Australia, and New Zealand. VISIT HER WEBSITE: https://www.stories-of-light.com

To find the right books for Muslim kids consider…

  • Imaginary reality and Physical reality.
  • In the past, stories reason for existing was in line with survival of a community.
  • Stories become problematic when boundaries between reality and fantasy are erased or no distinction between good and evil.
  • One should also avoid books promoting disunity of the family, shirk, or that are solely focussed on magic.

4 Things To Do Before the End of Ramadan with Your Kids

ramadan and kids

Teaching your children about your religion and culture is a significant part of parenting. Ramadan with your kids and other celebrations that you have at home as well as the numerous experiences that you share with your child will assist them with understanding the values that you attempt to instill in them. SubhanAllah, we are now nearing the end of Ramadan, but there is still time to do things which involve the whole family and by doing so ensuring that memories are made, family traditions are started, lessons are taught, and faith is sewn.

Ramadan with kids

In Episode 73 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share ways to you can still benefit from Ramadan as a family.

Key Points:

  • If you haven’t already, explain the significance of Ramadan! It is obligatory and one of the five pillars. But we also seek to attain Allah’s pleasure and to perfect our following of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ so that we attain his companionship. We hope to increase in understanding the Qur’an and act according to it. By avoiding both outward and inward acts that nullify our fasts, we improve our character and cleanse our heart. That Allah will accept our fast and forgive us through it.
  • Pray together! “A family who prays together stays together, and if they stay together they will love one another as God has loved each one of them.” – Mother Teresa.
  • Encourage Kids to Give – Charity, cooking for neighbours, sharing toys, preparing Eid gifts for the community. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is reported to have said , “A kind word is charity.”
  • Set goals for the rest of the year, until next Ramadan. Reflect upon their experience and consider what they would like to change or continue will going forward.

The Half-hearted Homeschooler | Finding your Passion for Homeschooling

homeschooler

We start the homeschool year enthusiastically but sadly, the passion to teach our children sometimes begins to fade. Even adults can get bored if they’re doing the same old routine every day. We may start to chose a half-hearted approach as the daily demands of caring for a household and the intense effort required as a homeschooler can drain even the most dedicated parent.

homeschooler

In Episode 72 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share that it is ok not to always be passionate about homeschooling!

  • If you don’t feel passionate about homeschooling, it’s ok! That’s not a sign that you shouldn’t home educate your children.
  • Long-lasting passion comes after putting in the work; after gaining experience and learning new skills.
  • Don’t expect it at the beginning.

What is Better than a Happy Homeschool? | Homeschooling Podcast

homeschooling podcast

When making homeschooling decisions sometimes we put too much weight on happiness and what makes our children happy and making sure they always do what they enjoy. Yes, children are an amanah (trust) from Allah SWT and we have certain duties and responsibilities towards them. We must guide them with kindness and mercy, but we also need to equip and prepare our children for the dunya and the akhirah.

In this homeschooling podcast I consider that sometimes, homeschooling may involve curriculum, activities, or reading books our children may find hard or don’t enjoy. These might not necessarily make them happy but they will benefit them by helping develop their characters and being ultimately being good for their life to come, InshAllah.

In Episode 71 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share how we can homeschool for the ultimate happiness, InshAllah.

Key Points from this Homeschooling Podcast Episode

  • Happiness is not the only goal for your children and your homeschool.
  • Also consider what is good for them, in this world and the next?
  • When you make a decision, consider what is good for them, not just what makes them happy.
  • It’s ok to choose a homeschool curriculum or activity that they do not enjoy.

Allah, the Almighty says, “And it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.” (AI-Baqarah, 2:216)

Why You’re NOT Happy Homeschooling | Homeschool UK

Homeschool UK

Too often we spend our days drowning in homeschool comparison and looking for that next surefire thing that will magically bring us up to some self-imposed standard. Living in a social media-driven world makes this worse, it is the source of so much of our discontent. We now can compare and judge ourselves 24/7 with other in homeschools UK but also around the world. When we compare ourselves to what others are doing, have, or simply how they are, we are essentially making ourselves feel downright inadequate and deflated – with low self-esteem to match.

Listen to my advice on not letting comparison rob us of the joy of homeschooling and learn to appreciate ourselves and our differences.

Homeschooling UK

In Episode 70 of the Raising Mums podcast, I discuss the reason why you’re not happy homeschooling and what you can do to overcome these feelings.

The key points to take away are:-

  • Comparison robs you of clarity and gratitude. It makes you heedless of Allah.
  • When you make a decision for a state of heedlessness, you will inevitably regret that decision.
  • You lose compassion for others, and may even lose friends.
  • Comparison sometimes disguises itself as looking for inspiration. Always question your intention for looking at the lives of others.
  • Stay in your lane. Stop looking at what everyone else is doing. Use that energy to improve what you are doing with your children.
  • Focus on your own children and what you can do to support them on this learning journey.

Make the Most of Ramadan WITH your Kids

ramadan-with-kids

Ramadan is a month of spirituality and moral values and is a great opportunity for parents to teach their children ethics and values. You can take advantage of this holy month by implanting the beauty of the month of Ramadan in your children’s hearts and minds. During Ramadan, children build important memories which will influence how they feel about Ramadan and other Islamic traditions in later life. Let us try and create meaningful memories and habits by making the MOST of Ramadan WITH our kids.

Ramadan-with-kids

In  Episode 69 of the Raising Mums podcast, we talk about how we can make Ramadan meaningful for all the family.

Make the most of Ramadan with your children by trying to:-

  • Ramadan is a time to realign, revive and awaken spritually
  • Slow down everything, except your spirutal practices
  • When you slow down, you have more time to help your kids connect with the blessed month of Ramadan
  • Reduce unnecessary commitments
  • Preserve your energy
  • Ramadan is intrinsically beautiful and special

Falling Behind in your Homeschooling Curriculum

Behind in Homeschool Curriculum

You have a lot to do. In addition to all your other jobs and responsibilities, you’ve also chosen to home educate your children. That’s huge! It’s no wonder that when you can’t keep up with the homeschooling curriculum, you worry they’re falling behind. You worry that they’re not where they’re supposed to be, that you’re failing as a homeschooler, and perhaps you should put them in school.

But before you jump to that decision, listen to this episode of the podcast!

Homeschool Curriculum - When you're falling behind

  • That story is not serving you of your children.
  • Behind according to what? Compared to who?
  • The belief that life will be better once you “catch up” robs you of the present; and the joy and connection you could be experiencing with your children now.
  • Your children are exactly where they are meant to be. You are exactly where you are meant to be.
  • Be the mother you wish to be, now. Don’t wait for when everything is perfect, because that day will never come.

How to Make a Decision! | Muslim Homeschool Podcast

Muslim Homeschool Podcast- Make a decision

Deciding to homeschool is a huge undertaking. As you make that choice, you’ll wrestle with emotions of doubt and fear; anxiety and self-loathing; confusion, and utter panic! And when you step out on the other side and boldly make that decision to home-educate, you may assume you’re the victor; that you’ll never face such difficult decisions again. Bad news friend…you will! But using the framework and coaching technique I teach in episode 67 of Raising Mums, will help you to make the right decisions for your Muslim homeschool, insha’Allah.

Just click on the play button above to find out more!

Muslim Homeschool Podcast

In Episode 67 of the Raising Mums podcast, we talk about what to do, when you don’t know what to do! I share how to overcome confusion and make a decision in your Muslim homeschool with confidence and faith.

Key Points:

  • All you have to do is take the next step. Allah will show you what to do after that.
  • Confusion is your brain’s way of protecting you from the unknown. You know what you need to do. Find the courage to do it.
  • Stop allowing your brain to worry about the future, and focus on the now.
  • Stop worrying about the way – just take the next step.
  • “The emaan (faith) of a person cannot be true until he has more trust in that which is in Allah’s Hands than that which is in his own hands.” – Ali ibn. Abi Talib (RA)
