Whoever among you wakes up (in the morning)
safe in his property, tranquil in his heart,
healthy in his body, and has his daily nourishment,
it is as if all of this world has been chosen for him.
                                        — Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

A thought-provoking quote by the most pious soul to have ever lived. In this world of wars, enmity, falsehood, lies and deceit, having the basic necessities of life fulfilled should be nevertheless considered as a blessing from Allah(SWT). Remembering, accepting and counting every blessing Allah (SWT) has bestowed on us, only teaches us to be more thankful for all we have in our lives that many others only yearn for.

I volunteered to review this journal, as I found it way to awesome to resist. The journal “Alhamdullilah for series” (A Muslim’s mini gratitude journal), is a product of the website Ayeina. The website is run by two very artistic sisters from whose names the portmanteau word ‘Ayeina’ is derived. If your mother tongue is urdu, then you will know for sure what ‘Ayeina’ means — A mirror. And that is exactly what the motto of the website is “Believer is the believer’s mirror”.

I have seen these lovely posters of the Alhamdullilah series  via Facebook and on other blogs as well. I was instantly attracted to the whole idea about thanking Allah for random things that we often seem to take granted for. The water color illustrations make the book a unique one. With such creativity, both adults and kids alike are sure to enjoy reading the journal and learn to say Alhamdullilah for every gift in life.

The book is divided into four categories.
1) Alhamdulillah For Basic Necessities
2) Alhamdulillah For Ties that Bind
3) Alhamdulillah For Islam
4) Alhamdulillah For Everything

There is a page at the end of each category to fill in all our personal Alhamdullilahs per week. 🙂 This journal is based on a monthly pattern of random descriptions of showing gratitude to Allah (SWT).  Through this book every Muslim will for sure learn and adopt the habit of saying Alhamdullilah.

The journal makes a perfect gift idea for both kids and adults alike. You can purchase the gratitude journal from the website of Ayeina or from Al-Muttaqun in the U.K.

An Alhamdullilah a day,
keeps scarcity away!

  2. I love this book. My sister bought it and I had the pleasure of reading it. Introducing the habit of saying Alhamdulillah to young kids so that they can appreciate the little things in life as well as big is very important. The book makes it so much easier, it’s so colourful, and the playful nature of the book allows them to be imaginative for what they are grateful for.

  4. Assalamoalaikum!
    I am visiting you from Muslimah Bloggers. Love the Rumi quote on your blog header. I am in love with Ayeina’s gratitude journal. Every graphic touches the heart and they are continuously working on more. I am taking one thoughtful graphic at a time and using them every week as a writing prompt. I’d be a frequent visitor of your blog inshaAllah!

  5. Sometimes in our busyness we get lost amongst the thoughts circulating our minds about what we want & haven’t got, though if we step back we already have SO much! The concept of this book really highlights the importance of being grateful, which in’sha’Allah we can pass onto our children,friends & family. And love the quote “an alhamdulillah a day, keeps the scarcity away” xo
