Sisterly Study Tips

As salaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh akhawaat.

We spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking, cleaning, etc. We can’t always sit down to read, however, that doesn’t mean that we can’t study at all. If you don’t have a small, dry erase board to mount on the kitchen wall, then turn your refrigerator into one. You can jot down new vocab words that you need to memorize, or whatever it is you’re going over. While washing dishes, mopping, cooking, or whatever ….stop and peek at the fridge for a sec and read everything written there. After committing it to memory, simply wipe the fridge clean and put new words, a small portion of a text, etc. up. It won’t ruin your fridge In Shaa Allaah…I’ve been doing this for a while now. {Use dry erase board markers – not the permanent ones please.}

The whole family can benefit from writing on the fridge. How often are the kids standing in front of it asking for snack? How many times a day are you yourself in and out of the fridge? How many times do you walk by it?


I drew shapes and inanimate objects on the side wall of the fridge for my daughter and she absolutely loved standing there pointing to and naming them all, Tabaarakallaah. Often times my daughter cries when I’m cooking and cleaning, so to give myself some peace of mind I give her a marker and let her write on the fridge. You can preoccupy your child(ren) by asking them to write the ‘Arabic Alphabet, numbers, shapes, etc. I’m thinking to put a small board in every room except the bathroom. We have to get in where we fit in…you know?
