Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:09--> 00:00:11

we'll begin in a minute inshallah.

00:01:27--> 00:01:48

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. Because I'd like to thank everyone who promoted this launch or helping any way with my writing career. Anyone who's in any way be responsible for helping us to get to this moment. But hamdulillah

00:01:49--> 00:02:02

we have to today we are launching what be my seventh book, homeschooling 101. What to expect in your first year of homeschooling. So this is going to be my seventh book that I'm launching today. And

00:02:04--> 00:02:19

I've always wanted to be a writer, it hasn't just been about writing books. More than that, for me, writing books, is really about benefiting the oma and helping the oma move back towards becoming a more of

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

a mama of readers of people who read

00:02:25--> 00:03:10

compared to people who just want to sit back and watch and I noticed this with our generation. With the older generation of scholars, there are many, many of them who write books. But our generation or most of us are making YouTube videos and focusing on social media. The other day, many people in our age group who are writing books for the oma and this is something which I want to revive, I don't want to be the only one writing these books, I want to inspire others to write as well, that we really need literature on dealing with the 21st century issues facing the Muslim world, written by young people who have knowledge of the deen and who are growing up in this, who have grown up in

00:03:10--> 00:03:26

this 21st century. So this is one of the reasons why I write books, I tell all that you have revived the spirit of reading and writing. On a more personal level, one of the reasons that I'm writing these books is

00:03:27--> 00:04:15

Well, honestly, to tell you the truth, I want to one day be an independent guy, to be someone who is funding my own power not associated with anyone and just doing our best of our own resources at it with my own time. And in order to do that, I need a good source of income. And as writing is something that I am really good at, I want to turn writing into a source of income. Over time, I want to be selling enough books that this can become my primary source of income. And I can devote most of my time to reading, researching, writing, homeschooling my kids and doing our independently, this is what I'm working towards and ready anytime any of you help me with a purchasing one of my

00:04:15--> 00:04:59

books, or give me an idea of another book to write or something like this, they are hungry like this helps me to closer towards my goal of becoming an independent daddy. So this is something that I really want to use towards end of day by publishing by 70 ebook. It's one step closer towards my goal. And writing books hasn't always been easy for me. I have done a lot this year, I've written and published about four books. But before that, there was just one book that I wrote and published back in 2011. And I hadn't written any other books since then. So that book was having fun. The Halloween is my first book. I actually wrote it back when I was

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

33 years old, published now 25 years old, just if you've read this book in post about in the chat box, just type in the chat box that you've read about it.

00:05:10--> 00:05:11

Yeah, this is the

00:05:13--> 00:06:01

first book, which I wrote back in 2011. when it launched, I said, I'm going to write so many more books after this. But what happened was from 2011 2012 1314, all went by, without be publishing any books. And this was something which already was because of procrastination. Procrastination brought one because of affections. And many of you who are involved in any Islamic activities, you may have some happy, something similar, where you procrastinated from launching something or doing something, or creating a product or doing some dour work, because it wasn't perfect. This is what was happening to me, until I realized last year, that it doesn't need to be perfect. It just has to be beneficial.

00:06:01--> 00:06:30

It has to be your best effort that is going to benefit people. That's what's needed. It's never going to be perfect because we are human beings, every human being makes mistakes. And once they realize that, the writings began to realize the ideas began to flow. And this year alone, I launched getting the Baraka, Vista creation, deep of the Quran, 10 self help tips. And now finally, 100 I've also launched it today, homeschooling 101. Now why this particular book, why did I choose writing?

00:06:32--> 00:07:08

I choose to write a book on homeschooling. But initially, I wasn't going to write a book on homeschooling for another five or six years, I told myself, I'm going to homeschool my kids for many years. And after that is successful, then and only then I'm going to write a book about homeschooling. But what is happening with a lot of people are messaging me and asking me, how do I get started? How do you start your first year of homeschooling? What do you do? God, they're clueless about how to begin. And I realized that's something I have experience with. I've been homeschooling for two years now. I know how to begin, I know what's expected and what's needed to

00:07:08--> 00:07:18

get done in the first year. So why not write a book on that topic? That's something I already have experience with. So hamdulillah in September, I started writing this book on

00:07:19--> 00:07:30

homeschooling. 101 what to expect in your first year, in this new ebook of mine, a talk about why homeschool. I mentioned 10 reasons why you should consider homeschooling, I also speak about

00:07:32--> 00:07:51

the nine step process for how to get started with homeschooling, and 20 of the most frequently asked questions about homeschooling and answer them in details. So this is why I wrote the book and are happy that it's now available for purchase, or those of you who are in attendance, you can actually get a discount on the book

00:07:52--> 00:07:58

by using this code on this website, and I will email it to you as well inshallah,

00:08:00--> 00:08:09

that if you click on my on my website, and you go to pay hip, in fact, let me show you how to do it because some

00:08:12--> 00:08:18

for some of you, it may be, you may not know where to put the code, and we show you how to do that really quickly.

00:08:37--> 00:08:41

Okay, doesn't seem to be working right now. We are a bit later.

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

Okay, that doesn't seem to be working.

00:09:00--> 00:09:00

I'm

00:09:01--> 00:09:02

not too sure why.

00:09:06--> 00:09:46

Anyway, if you go to pay hip COMM And you choose to purchase the book. And then when you go to checkout, they will ask you, if you have a code for a discount, that's where you type in this code, and you press enter, and it will drop the price down by 20% giving you a 20% discount on the book. So yes, I have done. I've launched my what my seventh book actually from the dealer. And I want to thank all of you who have supported me in any way, either with ideas or with assistance or marketing. You can continue to support me with purchasing the books and sharing it on your pages and on your social media and telling your friends and family about it. This really helped me work

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

towards my goals of encouraging the oma to become readers and writers benefiting people through these books and working towards becoming an independent author. So with that, inshallah, I'm going to conclude with this

00:10:01--> 00:10:07
