bismillah, walhamdulillah, wa salaatu wa salaamu ‘ala Rasulillah…

Welcome to my blog!  I hope to be able to share with you all some of my writings and experiences as a wannabe student of Islam, current resident of Cairo, spiritual seeker, new mother and old soul.

I hope that your time here is refreshing, faith-increasing, and illuminating and that Allah Most High puts baraka [blessings] in this little virtual space. 🙂

    Wonderful stuff.
    we too have been studying al hikam aphorisms.

    The Book of Illumination ‘Kitab al-Tanwir fi Isqat al-Tadbir .
    translation by Scott Kugle adds to the Hikam too.

    You’d be able to take it straight from source.
    Post some of that up too.
    Mashallah good work.

      wa alaykum as salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh Br. Abu Zaid,

      People are usually able to stay abroad for a number of years to study through one or a combination of the following:

      1. Saving up by working for a few years first.
      2. Working abroad – English teachers (especially those who are native English speakers) are pretty much always in demand in most Arab countries (like Syria and Egypt), and are paid pretty decently.
      3. Being funded by a scholarship, through your local community, masjid, or national organization like ICNA, IAU, etc. If you live in a larger community, you may want to present the idea to your masjid board and it may be something they will consider doing with certain stipulations (such as that they will pay for you to live and study abroad if you agree to come back and give back and teach the community for a certain number of years, etc.)

      May Allah facilitate your desire to study and make the best use of your time 🙂
