My brother gifted me this neat looking journal from the UK. I’m not entirely sure where he purchased it from, but I can always ask him if you’d like to know 😊

It’s not the typical journal/notebook I would pick up, aesthetic wise. However, I was looking for a notebook from my collection to use as a bullet journal for the rest of 2017, and after careful consideration decided to go ahead with this one.

Book Talk: Muhammad As If You Can See Him (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)

Book Talk: Muhammad As If You Can See Him (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)

The Prophet didn’t withhold his cheerfulness from anyone.

The humanness of the Prophet ﷺ was an elevating, radiant humanness.

Read Prophetic description (shama’il) before his biography (sira).

If we understand the Prophetic description (shamail), we can understand his life events (sira).

The Prophet: you don’t know him. If you knew him, you would love him–and your hearts would be full of this love.

The Prophet (peace be upon him): it is enough to realize that he is the Beloved of Allah.

Be beautiful people: live the Beauty of the Prophet ﷺ

My Favourite Reading Apps

I love reading. Paperbacks are lovely, but so are eReaders. I know, I know! Most avid readers will be shocked to see me profess this but hey- just, hear me out.

To me, it doesn’t matter what medium you use- what matters is that you read. And if eReaders are an option for you to increase your daily reading, then why not! 😀

I, too, was a skeptic when it came to eReaders once upon a time. But now- I pretty much love them! I love how reading on my iPad has enabled me to read books which were otherwise hard to get locally. Also, the reasonable rates at which I can get some books is unbeatable. Especially when it comes to books I’m not sure I will end up loving.

I also love how I can read in the dark without worrying about a book lamp 😉

What’s more? Free books. You definitely can’t beat that.
