Back to the classroom

All praise be to Allah SWT, this school year, I learned so much more about myself through self-reflection and honest soul searching.

I realized that:
1. I miss the classroom dynamics.
2. I actually LIKE and ENJOY grading papers.
3. I am constantly craving for opportunities to be in the classroom.
4. I am a pretty fabulous substitute teacher - according to some teachers and students!
5. I have finally decided to go for teacher certification, Allah SWT willing.

The best outcome of this school year is that my husband supports my decision to be a teacher. Woohoo!

A woman's Islamic prayer for her future husband

O Allah! Please grant me the one
Who will be the garment for my soul
Who will satisfy half of my deen
And in doing so make me whole

Make him righteous and on your path
In all he'll do and say
And sprinkle water on me at Fajr
Reminding me to pray

May he earn from halal sources
And spend within his means
May he seek Allah's guidance always
To fulfill all his dreams

May he always refer to Qur'an
and the Sunnah as his moral guide
May he thank and appreciate Allah
For the woman at his side

May he be conscious of his anger
And often fast and pray
Be charitable and sensitive
In every possible way

May he honor and protect me
And guide me in this life
And please Allah! Make me worthy
to be his loving wife

And finally, O Allah!
Make him abundant in love and laughter
In taqwa and sincerity
In striving for the hereafter!
