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 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.
As part of the release Ayeina will be holding a contest with prizes from collaborators from all around the world. I am pleased to announce that Islamopedia are one of the collaborators and we shall be offering a copy of our forthcoming title the Young Explorers’ Adventures in Makkah, which features artwork from Ayeina, as a prize to the lucky winners of this competition.
Please visit Ayeina’s website and social media sites to keep up to date with their posts and entry details for the competition.
I hope that you will enjoy the #Alhamdulilahforseries as much as I have.
