Reviving The Remembrance Retreat ~ al Maqasid



We just came back from a wonderful retreat, Reviving the Remembrance Retreat held by al-Maqasid  a non-profit organization. All of my Beloveds including myself are having withdrawals for so many reasons, the companionship, the classes, the Scholars, the beautiful environment, the communal living. . .

I am far from perfect, although my name Kamilah means perfection. In truth, I have so many faults that I need to work on. Reviving the Remembrance Retreat (RRR) from the very beginning even before driving up to RRR was a continued process of acknowledging my faults and working through them. I feel so much lighter and healthier from the whole process, and isn't that what a retreat is supposed to do ~ heal you ~


I also feel tired, a good tired: a hard working- great accomplishment type of tired, but tired nevertheless ... I came to RRR as a volunteer and left a servant... not to be mistaken as a slave, but a Servant of Allah (the one and only God), inshaAllah.

Homeschool Planning 2013-2014


I am excited about life in general, wherever God leads us, and this excitement pours over into our homeschool, especially our homeschool planning. It never goes exactly as I plan, God is always the Best of Planners. So here is my very planned out new school year~ based off my excitement, understanding that only a half of it may get done and knowing that We Will Learn 10 times more than I could of imagine planning.
