  1. I am wondering if y'all have preferred translations of the Quran: preferred for spiritual insight/clarity, for poetic language, powerful language, academic integrity, and so on. I'd like to find two good translations so that I can tackle reading the text. Here is my starting list: The Gracious Quran (trans. by Hammad) This is probably my current highest-ranked for clarity/personal experience. The Study Quran (trans. and commentary by Nasr et al.) Second choice for translation, first for general use b/c of the commentary and breadth of scholarship. Oxford World Classics Qur'an (trans. by Haleem) Not a translation, but this seems a worthy study to have on hand: The Cambridge Companion to the Quran (edited by McAuliffe) Also, if a version of the Hadith seems outstanding, I would be glad to know about it. Thank you for your thoughts & help!
  2. I have a couple questions related to Ramadan. First, what is an appropriate response to "Ramadan Mubarak" (did I spell that right?) Does it matter that I am not Muslim in terms of the best way to respond? Someone posted this in our local hs group Facebook page on the first day of Ramadan, and I wanted to respond but didn't know how. Should I just repeat the phrase/greeting? What does Mubarak mean? My other question is how is the time of Ramadan determined every year? Does it follow a lunar calendar? I was surprised at the timing this year as I remembered it being during the school year when I had Muslim friends in high school. There aren't a lot of Muslims in my current community so I haven't been very aware of the timing in recent years. Thanks for answering my questions!
  3. I suppose this is a curriculum conundrum/issue ... Button didn't like the SOTW2 AG map for "Spread of Islam" (he tends to read the dark areas as land and not water) so I pulled out my MapTrek book and asked him to study the map of the Islamic Empire while I printed out a blackline version for him to work with. The next thing I knew, he was exclaiming, "Wow! That happened very recently!" and he pointed out to me the huge swath of Africa and the Near East that were colored orange and labeled "Muslim Domination 1998". Then, looking more carefully at the orange spread over North Africa, he said, "Good grief! They conquered Mali!" He was under the impression that the Calpihate of 1998 had conquered all of the Middle East and Northern Africa, too. :banghead: So we discussed the difference between majority religion and political entities; and also the many varieties of Islam, and its non-homogeneity. But good grief. I am so disappointed and distressed at this presentation... there is no blob for the 1998 Christian domination, for ex., or for the Buddhist-dominated areas ... thanks for letting me vent. am all ears RE other blackline map options: would Uncle Josh's be better?
  4. Hi, Ramadan is half way over, so there are two weeks left before the Eid (holiday). In case anyone would like to take the opportunity to learn (and teach) about this holy month for Muslims I wanted to share some links with lapbooks and stuff like that. This is one for a lapbook, but note that this year is 1433 in the Islamic calendar http://ummabdulbasir.wordpress.com/2009/09/16/ramadan-lapbook-1430/ http://ummabdulbasirscreativecorner.blogspot.com/search?q=lapbook&x=0&y=0 (I can't seem to put the link in a word, instead it comes out as the long address line). That page has links to a few different activities. This one is for LaylatulQadr, the Night of Power.. http://ummabdulbasirscreativecorner.blogspot.com/2010/08/laylatul-qadr-mini-display.html And finallly, http://tjislamicstudies.blogspot.com/ is a great resource for any Islamic Studies, Arabic, and other general homeschooling materials.
  5. Here in Mexico, there aren't very many opportunities for exposure to people from other religions., so I would like begin studying world religions with ds beginning in (mid) 7th. (in addition to what we cover in History) I want him to be able to understand and hopefully gain a respect for others in the process. I think studying different religious books is essential to this process. Can some one recommend a good translation of the Quran for this purpose. Also, any other recs/reading material to go along with our studies. I am in the beginning of this process and open to any ideas. Thanks you. Danielle
  6. Please take this in the information seeking way we intend it - I am truly not trying to offend anyone, but I want to give my ds the right information and I just don't know the answer. We were reading about the Rise of Islam in history, and my son had a question about Allah. He was wondering, since Muhammad was influenced by the Judeo-Christian beliefs in one God, and since he had a visit by the Archangel Gabriel, if Allah is the same as the Christian God but that Muslims just worship Him differently. Is anyone willing to clarify? Or, if the whole question is rude and offensive, let me know and I'll delete it.
  7. My children have Muslim friends and have been to mosque and prayers with them. My husband and I were in Egypt for 4 months (before kids) and saw a lot of Islamic architecture and studied the history so we have a decent understanding of Islam. I just asked dh what he thought our children should know now. He thinks that they should know the differences between the different sects. Are there any good children's books about this? We are interested in both Grammar and Logic stage books. TIA!
  8. We will soon be studying Islam and the Islamic empires in our world history class. I'd like to know your top 3 picks for resources because we'll be spending about a week. On Netflix, I found a PBS documentary called Islamic Empire. If you've seen it, what do you think? What about Islam vs. Islamists / Muslims Against Jihad? I would like accurate history, not glossed over from any point of view. For the Islamic faith, what resource do you recommend? This is for a 12 and 14 year old.
  9. I'm fed up with all the Islamic curricula I've tried. I've got a high schooler, a middle schooler, and two at elementary level. Everything seems so babyish on the elementary levels, and lacking in concrete information. Or poorly produced. Everything I've seen at middle/high school level seems to have a depressing, dogmatic tone. For my high schooler, I'm leaning toward using the Quran (Asad translation), a good tafseer, and living books from some of my favorite authors. I'm not sure how to implement this approach on the younger levels. What do you all do/use? Suggestions for tafseer? BTW, I don't need Arabic language materials; got that covered. Thanks, Amy
  10. I've been asked several times whether I had a list of the supplemental books we use for our Islamic history, and I always said I was still working on putting it all together. Well, I'm still working on putting it all together, lol, but I have uploaded the bulk of what I have here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/12860056/Islamic-History-Resources-for-Children I need to do some fine tuning, and I haven't yet included the videos we have, so I'll need to do some updating at some point. But this is most of it. It's divided into "chapters" as per our own schedule for Islamic History, up to the Ottomans. If you have questions about specific books, feel free to email me for more info -- this just has book titles. Oh, and if you have any suggestions/recommendations, please send them along as well!
