    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuh, jazak Allahu khairan kathiran for this powerful and inspiring video! What I learned today? To dream BIG! I often set barriers and limit myself for no reason, jazak Allah khair for insisting on that point, in’sha’Allah this will help broaden my horizon πŸ˜€

    Assalamu alaikum! Jazakallahu hayran❀. Thank you very much I am incredibly excited to watch this video. And waiting for next videos. Alhamdulillah Thanks to Allah that I found your website where I can get best advices which is supported with Qur’an and Hadis. Because nowadays it’s quite difficult to find that kind of resources which will help you to be successful in both in akhirah and dunya. Thank you again.

    Salam Alaikum sis,
    Jaza kaLlah khairan katheeran for this amazing video. It’s been really helpful, it’s just that I wish I believed in myself enough to think I can achieve all of these. I often find feeling like a huge fool when I dream big and that in turn dampens my motivation.

    Hello, I’m Dwi from Indonesia. I feel like I’m in my comfort zone. I have a steady job and good salary, alhamdulillah.
    But sometimes, I feel not fulfilled with what I do. Sometimes I try to challenge myself to do something new, but again, I feel so lazy.
    But I hope after watching your video I will try to make a new plan and system in my life.
    Thank you sister:)

    well what was new for me today is that i was actually merging between happiness and achieving goals , that’s why the people in my circle always tell me i am miserable :;(… when i think of the quranic purpose , i feel a little bit afraid because i find it impossible – for me- to live like , always in worshiping … i mean i take – and actually took – a lot of wrong decision in my life , not to mention sinning … i know i should do istighfar and repent but you know , being a consistent fool makes me feel disappointed a lot of time before i realize that’s just satan… then back to my family , i always feel like i am a little uncomfortable when i think that i may do something in the favor of making them happy – specially my mum – because they always criticize me – and they are 100% right with all what they say – and i am just getting sick of being told i am wrong … i know they do that for my favor and that they have done me a lot – specially my mum also she did almost impossible things for us – but i just… feel annoyed !
    this is one of the most annoying , overwhelming and disappointing thing that always makes me feel that something important is messing in my purpose and goals .
    i don’t know if it’s just a matter of a mind set or not but , i am not allowed to change anyone but myself here … what is your opinion here?

    Assalam alaykum wrwb, Jazaka Allahu khayran. by biggest take away is to have action on goals and not goal achieving mind. and I love how you laid every step I really needed simple and effective steps to take control of myself and my life, with Allah’s permission. I have been feeling lost and unfulfilled for the last year and so. my quest to searching for simple and effective plan led me to your videos, Dr, Abdul Mohsin bin Mohamed al-Qasim, Dr Haifaa Younis, and Dr. Aysha Wazwaz. Jazakumu Allah khayral Jaza’. after watching video #1 I Feel calmer, Happier, and determined, and I have vision now Alhamdulilaah.

    Assalam o alaikum, jazzak Allah u khayr for the great video. Now I know why i feel sad and lost after achieving a goal and the need to have a bigger vision for life. Jazzak Allah u khayr.
    P.S: jazzak Allah u khayr for bringing my attention to the ayat in the Quran that mentions efforts and not end result. I always felt unhappy and dissatisfied since I thought I need to be on some xyz position doing something really big to please Allah SWT or else I have failed in life.

      Walaikumassalam Jaweria, I love how you put this… And I totally get why we may feel like we need to achieve xyz to become successful Muslims because sometimes looking at Muslims achieving so much in life, we feel like we need to do the same in order to please Allah. I know because I’ve felt this way all my life. This is absurd because everyone is different and wants different goals in life. I feel like setting purpose-oriented goals, whether big or small, and having a clear vision in life as a Muslim today, is more than amazing because that’s what drives our efforts. Great learning Jaweria! πŸ™‚

      Waiyyaki Halima! Yup, setting purpose-oriented goals as a 21st century Muslim is a must if we want to stay focused on Akhirah as well as achieve amazing things in Dunya! Dreaming BIG is definitely one of my favorite lessons. I’m glad you’re loving the bootcamp!❀️

        Assalamualaikum sis Aimen. Jazakillahu khair for the insightful video. My biggest takeaway was to have a dream that will turn into sadaqah jariah. That indeed is a big dream and sounds unattainable to me at the moment, like I can’t even begin to think about what I could offer that could achieve that.. but I am excited to start this journey inshaaAllah. So just to clarify, the Big Dream will be our Purpose to which our Goals align?

        Reply
        • Aimen

          Walaikumassalam Nur! I’m sure you can offer A LOT to earn sadqah-e-jariah! The very fact that you’re thinking about doing so shows how close you are to your big dream.
          To clear your confusion- your big dream is something that will earn you sadqah-e-jariah. It’s not your purpose to be exact. Your purpose is to serve Allah S.W.T. That’s the broad umbrella under which all your goals and big dream fall. The big dream aligns with your purpose. And your goals also align with your purpose but they are smaller in nature. Meaning, they could be dunya-oriented, not necessarily bringing you sadqah-e-jariah like the big dream. Your goals could be as small as losing weight, which is a personal goal- targeted around yourself. But you can make it into Ibadah (aligned with your purpose) by losing weight the Sunnah way. Big dream goes beyond yourself to serve others. Hope this clears your confusion dear! πŸ™‚

Especially with the expectations of society and these responsibilities that is piling up by the second.. Never that it occured to me that the effort is all that matters.. And all that i need is actually a purpose and a system..

    The thing I learned is that it does not stop by achieving your goal if you have a purpose. With this mindset you will keep on setting goals en put effort to achieve them and this will have a good impact on life I think.

      That’s absolutely on-point Hajar! When we are focused on the larger purpose of life, we will keep working on goals, one after the other. We repeat the process of goal-setting under the umbrella of our purpose even after we’ve achieved many things, Insha’Allah! πŸ™‚ Good learning!

    JazakAllahu khair for such an amazing reminder.to get our focus on the things which crosses our minds but we still dismiss them without another thought .
    i learnt that we need to focus on what our purpose of being in this world is .
    we must clear our lens and focus on what will please Allah SWT and what we should do for it, being in this world and this time.
    To stop overthinking and always see the opportunity given to us as a chance to buld a better Ahirah

    Assalaam aleikum … Thank you soo much Jazakillah khayr ..wallah I am so glad to have enrolled in this bootcamp at first I procrastinated on watching this video several times but today I was overwhelmed and had anxiety issues and actually cried like why aren’t things going my way… its when I decided maybe I should watch the video perhaps it will change my perception and how I view things… this lesson really opened me up and one thing I learned is that comparison isn’t something to focus on because it may tear us apart and also I learned that our purpose in life should always be on pleasing the creator

Now Alhamdulilah I’m so much more productive and happier comparing myself to myself from yesterday. I’m sure you’ll feel the same way too, Insha’Allah. And yes, if you truly know your purpose and revise it regularly, it will guide you in everything you do in life. Great learning, Saniah! I’m so proud πŸ™‚

    Waiyyaki dear!
    JazakAllah for reaching out. It was really nice reading such a long thoughtful comment. 😊

    I mean it when I say this- I have been there and at times I feel as if I am still there.. feeling overwhelmed about exams, responsibilities and building my Akhirah. But the difference I have felt slowlyy over the past 4 years, in my life and in my belief system has been remarkable. It is all due to the power of dreaming big with purpose. Why am I telling you this? It’s because after reading your comment, I had memory flashbacks πŸ™‚ Your problems have been mine. But what I’d like to share with you is that- this phase of adulthood, immediately after graduation, is probably the toughest when it comes to finding a clear vision in this life. I feel that transitioning into adulthood is a whole new type of struggle for most of us. So the only thing I believe we can do in this phase is keep going and never give up on thinking big as well as on our goals.

    I am impressed by your habit of planning and keeping journals (Masha’Allah). 😊 Not many people I know do that. I believe that this habit of yours can help you achieve literally anything you want to do in life. Never give up on it!

    One thing that will reduce your anxiety for sure is working on one of your goals and sticking with it all the way till the end. Whatever it is that you have planned to do over the past years, NOW is the time to pick one big goal and really start working on it. Commit to it and stick to it even when you feel like you can’t pull on any longer. I guarantee that you will feel the unease and dissatisfaction with yourself slowly slip away. Although you will feel anxiety on and off while working on your goals, however, that anxiety is rewarding as you take small steps that bring you closer to your goal. Hopefully the second video will guide you in depth about achieving goals.

    The reason why I say NOW is the time, it’s because once you get in the zone of studying for your post-grad exams and residency etc, you will never be able to come back to this time. From there onward, the responsibilities only go uphill.

    I think this comment is turning into an article πŸ˜‚ If there’s anything you would like help with, don’t ever hesitate to ask dear. And try not to stress over things so much, Insha’Allah you will find your way ❀️️

      JizakAllah kher for taking the time out to reply and leaving such a detailed response! I am studying for USMLE exams and recently got married and moved to a new country so it has been challenging settling in. Also I just failed my 1st attempt at my driving test today. πŸ˜‚ But I am trying to not be disheartened and just think of it as a learning experience. I feel like up to a certain point in life ,especially up to my A Levels, I was so used to always doing well that I simply cannot bear failure or defeat of any kind without falling apart. But I know that some kind of disappointment will be inevitable in life and I can only control my efforts, not the outcome! I am still pondering over the lessons of the first video- I never really sat down and thought of my ‘Big Dream’ so I spent a day or two mulling it over and then jotted down my notes in the workbook you designed. I will be moving onto Video#2 today In sha Allah. May Allah bless you for all your efforts! <3

        Of course, my pleasure πŸ™‚
        Oh dear, that’s a lot of major changes that you’ve had to go through in life! I’m sure it must be quite challenging.
        I agree with you when you say that disappointment is inevitable for all of us human beings at some point in our lives. Up until we are students, our disappointments are usually study-related. As we get older, we start seeing a world bigger and more disappointing than how we imagined it, haha πŸ˜‚ But only with disappointments can we learn how to actually deal with disappointments. Once we learn how to deal with them, we are better prepared for the next round of disappointment life throws our way, even though it hurts the same.

        You failing your driving test once is hardly considered a failure and just another skill you’ll learn with time 😊 Don’t think much about it sweetie.

        I am really glad you’re dreaming big already, brainstorming and jotting down ideas, Masha’Allah! Dreaming big is something that the entire youth is innately capable of, yet most of us don’t give much thought to it. It’s great that the videos are helping you, Alhamdulilah. Ameen to your duas dear. ❀️️.

    JizakAllah kher for the informative video and for creating such a helpful website for Muslims. As someone who just graduated medical school and is grappling with the responsibilities of adulthood and feeling very overwhelmed and anxious about upcoming exams and other goals, this video really helped me to look at things from a fresh perspective. I am a planner through and through, having kept multiple journals and diaries throughout my school life. I have always wanted to dedicate more time to learning about Islam but throughout my five years of medical college, I kept telling myself I would do that once I graduated. Now here I am on the other side of the road and I have realized that life does not get any easier after college, it only gets busier and more demanding. As someone who is naturally prone to stress and anxiety to the point where it becomes crippling, I have been struggling immensely with the goals I set for myself over the past months. I have become increasingly disheartened and often end up telling myself that there is no way I can succeed in this phase of life. I hope I am able to apply the lessons you have tried to impart in these video lessons in my life and stay on them consistently In sha Allah. Looking forward to the next video!
