Ayeina’s #Alhamdulillah For Series Gratitude Journal


Ayeina’s #Alhamdulillah For Series Gratitude Journal

(Recall the time) when your Lord declared, “If you express gratitude, I shall certainly give you more, and if you are ungrateful, then My punishment is severe.” – [Qur’an 14:7]

Many months ago as I was searching through Instagram for artists to collaborate with me on my book the Young Explorers’ Adventures in Makkah, I came across the @Ayeina_Official Instagram page. The illustrations that they did captured my imagination but what impressed me even more were the captions that went with it, so much so that I asked them to do some illustrations for my book to which they kindly agreed.

I loved the way that they turned every day things that we take for granted and converted them into an #Alhamdulilahforseries teaching us to be grateful for each and every blessing that we have, big or small.

As the caption suggestions continued to pour in, so did the number of illustrations and before you knew it there were almost 100 illustrations and captions to enjoy, each with their own unique artwork to go with it. Some of my favourite captions include

‘Alhamdu Lillah for Fatherhood’

‘Alhamdu Lillah for Chai or Biskut’Alhamdu Lillah

‘Alhamdu Lillah for Halal Meat Anywhere Anytime’

‘Alhamdu Lillah for Mosque at a Walking Distance’

I am pleased to know that Ayeina are currently working on releasing the #Alhamdulilahforseries as a book / journal and look forward to its formal release.

Young Explorers’ Adventures in Makkah Update


Assalamu ‘Alaykum,

We are pleased to announce that Shaykh Ahmed Saad Al-Azhari has kindly provded the forward to the book. We are grateful to the Shaykh for his contribution. In it he writes:

‘This book is a brick in the wall of resisting this cunning project of commercialisation of Makkah as it highlights the historically and spiritually significant places that deserve the visit of our people, young and old; rather than malls and shopping centres.’

‎25 Ways to Enter Jannah (Paradise)

“We all want to enter Jannah but are we sincerely striving for it? There are multiple ways to attain the pleasure of Allah SWT and enter His Jannah. Allah SWT has made it easy for us to enter His Jannah but some of us forget this due to an ‘attachment’ to this temporary worldly life!

Following are some hadiths which will show us 25 ways or good deeds to enter the Jannah. Remember, these are not the ‘only’ 25 ways and there should be ‘sincerity’ and ‘consistency’ in these acts to get Jannat-ul-Firdause InshaAllah :)

That is the note every child received. In five straight days I had reached more than 500 impoverished Bangladeshi children and gifted one goodie bag each that consisted of an item of new clothes, a pair of slippers and chocolate. Then together we headed for the group lunch. The children grinned from ear to ear, laughed and screamed in joy and burst out in happiness. All this happened due to a ‘three day campaign in my Facebook fan page’. I would like to thank every friend who has donated HAPPINESS to these children. Thanks for sharing your world with these children. During five days from morning to noon I had unforgettable moments with street children, child labourers and unprivileged rural children. My friends, in this video I am sharing a glimpse of that joyous experience which which many of you have created along me. I am…
