YOU CAN BUILD A DIFFERENT KIND OF LIFE AS A 21ST CENTURY MUSLIM 

I’m so excited for you because TODAY is a beautiful day to start building a balanced life for yourself.

A life that gives you permission to spend time on yourself and your career- because now you are consistently making time for your Deen.

Where your day begins with you excited, energetic and focused and ends with you deeply satisfied with yourself because of how productive it was.

Where you are IN CONTROL of the way you spend your time. Not your wandering mind. Not your Nafs. But YOU.

So you’re FINALLY getting things done- especially the important ones that you don’t even want to do. Because of THAT kind of discipline that has now entered your day.

And energy. You are FULL of it. You wake up excited for a new day and set a greater challenge for yourself than yesterday. Why? Because you know you can do it. You’ve been growing. You’re now in better control of the way you spend your time.   

But why? Why do you even need to take control of how you spend your time?

To balance Your Deen and Dunya.

Today, we have the strongest reasons to learn how to balance our Deen and Dunya:-

  • With more distractions to fight through- social media, the internet.
  • With the 21st-Century Hustle- now we have to work much harder to live a comfortable lifestyle. We have full-time careers to pursue. Jobs. Studies.
  • It’s easy to get absorbed in Dunya. But MUCH harder to keep holding on to our Deen- to practice Islam everyday.
  • Whether we like it or not, we are in the Century of Fitnah. We have MORE reasons to grow closer to Islam because if we don’t- we can easily get swept away from our main purpose.
  • Above all, to survive the storm, we NEED to stay in a close connection with Allah S.W.T. 

  

There are PLENTY of great, authentic Islamic sites out there teaching you the Tafseer of the Quran, Sunnah, Arabic, Fiqh etc. Why aren’t you studying from them and changing yourself?

There’s BayyinahTV, Qalam Institute, UnderstandQuran, IOU and so many other great Islamic platforms teaching us the Quran. 

Then why don’t we have a great connection with the Quran? Why don’t we have a deep meaningful relationship with Allah S.W.T?

I’ve observed that we don’t need more informational sources of Quranic Tafseer to grow closer to our Deen and Allah S.W.T. 

Because no matter how many sources exist- if you don’t make time for them, they won’t benefit you. 

And for most of us- that’s the most difficult thing to do!

Prophet S.A.W had a deep meaningful relationship with his family.

If there are so many authentic sources of Sunnah and Hadith, why don’t we have an open communication with our family? 

We all agree that every relationship takes work. Whether it’s with Allah S.W.T, your mom, your spouse or your friend. 

But what we forget is that- to give these relationships the best chance to work, you need to invest TIME in them.  

Do you have an acquaintance to whom you say salam every now and then but don’t really stay in touch with? That’s fine. That’s because you probably don’t care about developing a meaningful relationship with that person.

But do you care about your connection with Allah S.W.T? If you do, how do you expect to have a really close relationship with The Almighty Allah if you don’t make time for Him (S.W.T)?

Time. 

That’s what we need. 

It has always seemed harder for millennial Muslims to even DREAM of living a balanced life like the Prophet S.A.W and his companions lived- but counter-intuitively, it’s never been easier for 21st century Muslims than it is today.

I’m here to help you.

 

I remember I was ready to throw away even the thought of making time for my Deen at one point. I was so deeply frustrated with my relentless efforts to do everything I wanted to do in life as a Muslim, but somehow getting nothing done.

Somehow I pushed through the first four years of Medical School, making and destroying plans, staying in the rut of my old habits- depressed and hopeless. I would finally conclude that “There’s something wrong with me”.

But when I looked around, I saw pains similar to my own. And for one brief moment, I would feel a sense of relief wash over me- I was not alone.

Motivated again, I would go back to watching some more inspirational videos, downloading time-management apps and following the “Perfect routine” I had picked off the internet.

And for a few days- life would be seemingly “perfect”.

I was organized, working out, studying regularly, praying on time, even eating healthy (I mean, who does that anymore?!) and giving a solid 2 hours to Quran everyday (which was btw- AMAZING by my standards at that time).

I was managing my time the best I could. I would look back at my day and be proud.

Then inevitably, THIS would happen—- A small bump- an unconventional interruption, a sudden change of environment or an upcoming exam- and all my perfectly designed “PLAN” would fall apart.

Like a wave of tsunami, a feeling of helplessness and INTENSE frustration would sweep away my “PERFECT DAY” and I would succumb back to binging shows. I just couldn’t do it. I concluded that I was too “ALL-or-NONE”. I either did things “perfectly” or didn’t do them AT ALL. Or at least that’s what I convinced myself.

This was my “Perfect Plan”. Caption: From # years ago.

And this was what actually happened:

And I wasn’t the only one.

We would read up topics like: Time Management Tips. Work/ life Balance. Deen and Dunya. Productivity Hacks.

The problem was this:

What was Missing…

The secular productivity gurus would tell you all about apps, hacks, secret time-management methods & tactics.

Then why did I feel like there was more to the story? What about Nafs? And Shaytan? I remember watching a Ted Talk about procrastination in which the guy said: “There’s an instant gratification monkey in your head that makes you procrastinate”. I laughed out loud at that.

Really? A MONKEY?!

The “more scientific” secular productivity gurus had a really predictable approach. They would spend decades just trying to find the cause of all these internal human struggles and finally settle on the brain.

Anything that’s difficult to figure about the human psyche- make it about the brain.

But Muslims had bigger fish to fry. We already knew the cause. It was Shaytan and our Nafs. Our belief system made that easy for us.

So I knew only relying on these modern productivity techniques was not going to be enough.

In the search of “more”, I would spend hours looking up “Islamic duas for productivity”. Or “Time management in Islam”.

I’d find material on “the importance of time in the Quran”.  

But I wasn’t looking for the importance of time. I ALREADY knew the importance- that’s why I was looking to manage my time better in the first place!

I’d find motivational quotes from Ibn- Qayyim, Ayahs and ahadith, and they would get me all motivated. But not for long before I swung back to my old ways.

I learned three things…

 

# 1 I realized that information alone was never going to be enough to make the best use of my time.

If it was, why wasn’t anybody doing it then?

Nobody wants to procrastinate.

Nobody wants to be lazy and unmotivated.

Above all, nobody really wants to waste time. We just didn’t know how.

# 2 I discovered that despite the fact that the internet was OVERLOADED with information, it was also missing a key ingredient: how?

How could I apply all of that information to my personal life??

 

# 3 I decided that there had to be a way that combined the modern productivity techniques with the belief system of a Muslim.

A system that “weaved” the psychology of Nafs into the scientific time-management info.

And so that’s what I did. I put together everything I’d learned in my 7 years of struggle, tested it and then— I trashed it.

I didn’t want to make an encyclopedia full of productivity tips and methods!  

No, I knew I had to do more than that to reach other millennial Muslims like myself. So I spent 9 months on research. BTW, 9 months is a baby.

I spent hundreds of hours just studying the invisible psychological barriers- the limiting beliefs that were shaping our actions (or the lack thereof). But more on that later. 

I dug deeper into the WHY of all our problems. I took the Doctor’s approach of “DIAGNOSING” the underlying cause of our shackles.

Did I “figure out a magic formula” or make a “groundbreaking discovery”?

Of course not. But I did learn what I needed to know about the missing ingredient: the HOW.

To bring that information into practical everyday life, I annoyed a LOT people around me by testing my methods on them. 😀

I only wanted to keep the methods that worked and chuck away ALL the rest. So that I didn’t frustrate my readers by handing them a bunch of random tips on a pretty plate.

And overtime strange unexpected things started happening: those methods had actually started working!!

I couldn’t believe it. I started receiving emails like “I feel like you’re reading my mind”.

There was no greater feeling than knowing that my material was changing the lives of other Muslims.

NAME

I WANT TO HELP YOU BUILD A DIFFERENT KIND OF LIFE

My screenshots of MYP-LIBRARY, CALENDAR: This is how sophisticated my calendar looks like now.

This is what Allah S.W.T has blessed me with: A chance to share the work I’ve done on myself with thousands of othersAlhamdulilah.

FYI- That’s a very drastic change from being a frazzled, overwhelmed doctor who couldn’t even help herself to being a guide who’s now helping others.

Anyone who’s a doctor in your family can tell you how time-consuming Medical field can be. The work. The studies. The fears of making a mistake. The stress of being a good doctor.  

So how did I clear Medicine with a high score every single year, add a second full-time career– Muslim Youth Programme, to my life while still pursuing my field? (Ok, MAYBE bragging a little)

If there was ONE secret-sauce recipe I could give you, it’s no other than- the better use of my time.

So [predictably] in this guide, I’m going to show you how to use your time so you can carry your Deen gracefully while pursuing your career and other goals in this Dunya. 🙂 

Go grab yourself a cup of coffee and get your learnin’ on!

What being a SUCCESSFUL MUSLIM really means

Allah has defined success in multiple ayahs in the Quran attributing success to different acts of Ibadah. But at the HEART of success is one fleeting object- time.

He has succeeded who purifies the soul, and he has failed who corrupts the soul. [Surah Ash-Shams 91: Ayahs 9-10]

Even the purification of soul requires time. Doesn’t happen overnight.

In Surah al-Asr we are told:
“By time, Indeed, mankind is in loss, Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience” [103:1-3].

Notice that in Surah Asr, Allah swears by time. And when Allah swears by something in the Quran, it means it’s SERIOUSLY important.

But let’s dig a little deeper- Why does Allah S.W.T swear by time? And that too, right before He tells us about the 4 criteria of entering in Jannah and being successful? 

Obviously, Allah S.W.T is telling us that to have the slightest chance of following these criteria and making your way to Jannah, you need to make the best possible use of one asset you’re given: TIME. 

Because that asset is running out. Al-Asr: it literally means “Time that is running out” or The last part of time”. (Even Salat-al-Asr is during the last part of the day.) 

Truth is- it’s the ONE object in this world that once gone, never comes back and that nobody can control or manage in the literal sense.

In another Ayah, Allah says:  

“Successful are the believers…those who stay away from lughw (things which waste time)” (Surah Mu’minoon 23:1 & 3)

Notice that He (S.W.T) is again associating “time” with “success”. He’s telling us that if we want to be successful Muslim, we better stay away from all things that waste our time- Lughw.

In Surah Al-Imran He talks about patience, consistency and perseverance and how they are prerequisites to success.

Because even though a Muslim can do good deeds once in a while, the real challenge is doing them REGULARLY. For that we’ll need patience & perseverance.  And all three- patience, perseverance and constancy are by-products of time. 

Time is at the HEART of true success according to Allah S.W.T.

 Now that we’ve established that what true success really means to a Muslim (and it DEFINITELY does not mean the Forbes 30 under 30 or NewYorkTimes BestSeller kind of success)…. Let’s begin with the different approaches to time-management you can take (and what we believe is the best one).

THE FOUR COARSE MODELS OF TIME-MANAGEMENT

Here are three of the most common models of time-management that productivists will tell you about:

1. THE CLASSIC TIME-MANAGEMENT MODEL

This is the most common approach to time-management. It’s centrally focused on the management of the “time” itself. When you type time-management in google or time-management courses on Udemy, you’ll find methods such as:

  • Getting Things Done by David Ellen
  • Stephen Covey’s time management grid (Author of 7 Habits of highly Effective People)
  • ABC method
  • Pareto’s principle- 80/20 rule.
  • Eisenhower Matrix for prioritizing.
  • Pickle Jar theory for prioritizing between goals. (rocks, sand, pebbles and water)
  • Parallel Programming method
  • ALPEN method
  • Maslow’s Theory (showing the hierarchy of human needs)
  • Eat the frog by Brian Tracy
  • And many more…
This regular “time-management” approach covers all different kinds of methods from techniques for prioritization, to task-management methods and project-management systems etc. 

The only problem is- NOT A SINGLE ONE of the systems is targeted specifically for Muslims.

Although there are plenty of methods in this model that actually help us Muslims prioritize better and become more productive but not a SINGLE one is designed specifically for Muslims.

Meaning this approach completely cuts off the Quran and Sunnah limbs from time-management.

On to the next approach…

2. THE WORK/ LIFE BALANCE MODEL

This is another model that you’ll read about in the entrepreneurial magazines.

Work/ life balance is a term commonly used by people who work 9 to 5, originally coined in the late 1970s.   

“Work/life” balance is at best an elusive ideal and at worst a complete myth, today’s senior executives will tell you.” (Boris Groysberg and Robin Abrahams wrote that in a March 2014 Harvard Business Review article)

This model is faulty at so many levels but the biggest one is probably the separation of “work” from “life”.

It compartmentalizes work and life. And it clearly demarcates “work” from everything else that’s thrown in the “life” part, which btw comes after work. In other words, the work itself is at the center of focus and weighs equally or heavier than the “rest of the life”. 

And what of work-from-home entrepreneurs? Or people with 2 jobs and debts to pay off? And housewives who are technically not working a 9 to 5 job? Who can clearly measure their level of productivity?

There will always be interruptions from “life” during our work hours and interruptions from work during the rest of our time. How can we separate the two? We can’t. 

Then later there appeared this newer version of the work/ life balance model, this time called…

Work/life-integration” model.

This approach allowed people to connect the two areas of life but that’s the problem- yet again, this approach also focuses on only two areas of life: work and life. And by life, what’s meant is family and self-time.

That can’t work for us Muslims because we have a complete area that is missing from all of the above models: IBADAH. We can’t ignore our Salah during work nor can we ignore the fact that we have to fast during Ramadan, even if that means fasting while work.

We have to make time for Allah S.W.T and Quran.  

Which is why ALL OF THE ABOVE are incomplete models of time management that don’t fully solve the problems Muslims are facing today.

This brings me to the next model: The Barakah model.

3. THE BARAKAH MODEL

Barakah completes the time-management model. When all the rest of the models are so adamant on improving your task-management skills and getting your prioritization methods right (both of which are undeniably important), barakah covers the spiritual aspect of productivity. It brings more “soul-elements” to the concept of time-management.

Barakah is the spirit of GROWTH. Whether it’s growth of your money, time or wellness, it’s the  secret ingredient responsible for growth, especially unexpected growth. 

So if you put all your efforts in the right direction ACTIVELY SEEKING barakah- growth will follow suit.

And not the bare minimum growth that’s conceivable but growth that is BEYOND MEASURE- and it can only come from Allah S.W.T.

So yes, although everything is from Allah S.W.T, Barakah is a special kind of boosted growth that can enter your life if you actively look for it.

“And have you seen that seed which you sow? Is it you who makes it grow or are We the Grower?”. [Quran 56: 63-64]

Here’s where things get really interesting: We are repeatedly told in the Quran to only worry about our efforts and leave everything else up to Allah S.W.T. [Refer to Quran Surah Talaq 65, Ayah 3].

But what if Allah S.W.T has shown us a way by which we can more-or-less CONTROL THE RESULTS TOO?! The matter that’s, in reality, completely out of our control? 

There’s only ONE way we can possibly have any kind of effect on the results– and we are told about this in the Quran too on numerous occasions (Surah Fussilat (41:10), Al-A‘rāf (7:96), Hud (11:48), Al-An‘ām (6:92) & (6:155), Al-Anbiyā’ (21:50), Al-Nur (24:35), Al-Qasas (28:30) and plenty more).  

And that powerful intangible thing is no other than Barakah of course. 

Barakah is centrally FOCUSED around the RESULTS of your efforts. It has the power to bring a long-lasting IMPACT (one that extends all the way till Akhirah) of the results of your work.

So if we can actively bring barakah into our lives, we can give the results of our hard work— the best chance of MAXIMUM IMPACT.

This is the model that’s specifically for Muslims as it is mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah.

But there’s a problem: The application of this model in our personal lives is not so easy… 

Let me give you three examples of the sources of Barakah in our lives: 

Example # 1: Making time for Allah S.W.T & doing Zikr to remember Him (S.W.T)

Making time for Allah S.W.T everyday and doing Zikr is first and foremost- the CENTRAL source of barakah. All other good practical sources of barakah- prayer, Salawat, avoiding sin etc. all boil down to building a better relationship with Allah S.W.T. 

And the most important way in which we can make time for Allah is through ESTABLISHING prayer.

And enjoin prayer upon your family [and people] and be steadfast therein. We ask you not for provision; We provide for you, and the [best] outcome is for [those of] righteousness. [Quran: Surah 20, Ayah 132]

Example # 2: Developing a strong relationship with the Quran

That’s another HUGE source of barakah.

Abu Umama said he heard Allah’s Messenger (S.A.W) say:

Recite the Qur’an, for on the Day of Resurrection it will come as an intercessor for those who recite It. Recite the two bright ones, al-Baqara and Surah Al ‘Imran, for on the Day of Resurrection they will come as two clouds or two shades, or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Surah al-Baqara, for to take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the magicians cannot confront it. (Mu’awiya said: It has been conveyed to me that here Batala means magicians.) [Sahih Muslim]

Example # 3: Maintain a strong relationship with your family

In the third example, maintaining a strong relationship with your family is clearly a source of barakah.

Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah said:

“Learn enough about your lineage to facilitate keeping your ties of kinship. For indeed keeping the ties of kinship encourages affection among the relatives, increases the wealth, and increases the lifespan.” [Jami` at-Tirmidhi]

Now we all know these are the 3 things we “should” be doing: 

  1. Pray on time 5 times a day 
  2. Read and apply Quran everyday
  3. Make time for family everyday 

Why don’t you get up and do them REGULARLY? 

OK, let’s say you get “motivated” and you start but tell me this: FOR HOW LONG will that be before you end up:

  • Depressed because you know you “should” read Quran but deep down you’re afraid to admit that you don’t really want to?
  • Frustrated because you just can’t wake up early to pray Fajr on time!?
  • Overwhelmed with guilt because of not being able to give time to any of the above?

 

Simply telling a fellow brother or sister to “Pray on time” or “Read Quran” is NOT GOING TO MAKE THEM DO IT.

Which is why I’ve learned to read between the lines, pick up signs of weakness, dive deep into the WHYs, and scrap off the limiting beliefs one by one to make sure that by the time you’re told to “Wake up for Tahajjud”- you ACTUALLY DO IT.

There are so many undiagnosed problems, unidentified steps and hidden blanket beliefs that you need to tackle FIRST to get to the point where you can sit back and enjoy the effects of barakah in your day.

And for the first time, after my 7 year-long experimenting, 9-months of deep psychological dives, and 2500+ hours of time & energy invested, I have painstakingly compiled all of those often ignored steps that later scale into advanced strategies in a complete step-by-step system. 

Introducing the only time-management system you need as a Muslim:

THE BALANCE DEEN AND DUNYA SYSTEM

For the first time, I will show how to balance your deen and dunya using a step-by-step system. The ONLY system that COMBINES the modern TIME-SAVING methods with the Islamic TIME-GROWTH concept of Barakah.

And it shows you how to bring the endless rewards of barakah effortlessly into your daily life by managing your three CORE elements:

  1. SELF
  2. ENERGY
  3. TASKS

FIRST, to make the best possible use of your time, we’ll throw away the idea of “MANAGING” your time. 

Time can’t be managed. Accept it. TIME IS NOT MONEY. Move on.

You can think about managing it and in the time you’re thinking- you’d have lost 30 secs of your time. Those 30 secs are never coming back. So much so for “managing”.  It’s how it is. 

But what about your Nafs? And the energy inside you (and outside you)? And the tasks in front of you? Surely they can be “managed”? 

CONSIDER THIS: 

  • If you lack self-control or self-discipline (NAFS)- you’ll waste time procrastinating or indulging in distractions.
  • If you are lazy or demotivated or depressed (ENERGY)- you will waste time trying to focus properly to get things done.
  •  If you are disciplined and energetic but you don’t know how to prioritize your tasks (TASKS)- you will end up spending less time on the more important tasks and more time on trivial ones that don’t matter, wasting time in the process.

 No matter how many ways you look at it- it all comes down to disciplining your Nafs, regulating your energy and managing your tasks.

Some productivists separate focus into another category, whereas we believe focus is a practice of the energy and self.

Others commonly separate time. But we learned how time is the asset that can’t be controlled.

And most associate task-management methods such as “get things done” or “eat the frog” to time-management.

Although these task-management techniques undeniably help you in making a better use of your time, they are simply NOT ENOUGH!

That’s why I have deliberately included these task-management tactics, in ONE part of the Balance Deen and Dunya system.

STOP running your wheels in the WRONG directions. Instead, direct all your efforts on managing the three elements that are more or less WITHIN your control and you’ll be a winner.

The end-result will be this: If you can discipline your Nafs, manage your energy, and do tasks efficiently– you’ll AUTOMATICALLY be making the best possible use of your time, aka, “time-management”.

A simple formula that nicely sums it all up to help you balance your time between Deen and Dunya:

Self-Management (Disciplining Nafs) +

Energy management ( External and Internal energy) +

Task-Management = BEST USE OF TIME

SELF-MANAGEMENT

In SELF management, we cover self-control, self-discipline, motivation, consistency, procrastination, focus, distractions (internal & external), making and breaking habits, routines etc.

ENERGY-MANAGEMENT

In ENERGY management, we understand the types of energy (internal & external), how to use it, increase it, remove & replace negative harmful energy damaging our productivity such as stress, negativity, burnouts etc.

TASK-MANAGEMENT

In TASK management, we learn how to execute tasks, set goals and actually achieve them, plan our days, weeks, months, prioritize our day-to-day activities etc.

We will give you hands-on tools you’ll need plus basic strategies that later scale into advanced strategies to build a balanced productive lifestyle…. and then the systems to MAINTAIN it.   

Take a look at the Balance Deen and Dunya ROADMAP. I’ve covered all the steps in the roadmap below.

So how do you get started?

If you’ve tried anything before to manage your time better, you know that getting started can sometimes be the MOST DIFFICULT step.

That’s why we start by tackling your limiting beliefs.

I studied the concept of limiting beliefs in Psychology… and as I looked in the productivity industry, I saw it again- the concept of Invisible Scripts from the entrepreneur- Ramit Sethi.

So after doing a little digging of my own in the Muslim community, I started seeing these limiting beliefs EVERYWHERE.  

Basically limiting beliefs are like “blankets” that we use to “hide” ourselves from our “difficult or scary” goals. In other words, they are real and powerful excuses that keep us stuck in our comfort zones. 

Let me show you some of the blanket beliefs that might be stopping you from changing your behavior:

“I don’t know where to start!”

This is by far the most understandable one. We are OVERWHELMED with the ocean of free information available today on the internet… Heaps of articles and videos throwing productivity hacks in our face.

No wonder we try one tactic, only to drop it soon after because we just found a supposedly “better” tactic that promised to “100X” our productivity. Does it? Obviously not.

Because there’s no one size fits all.

Or you may feel lost. You don’t have a clear direction. You know your purpose is to live your life according to Islam but what does that mean for YOU?? Do you have to leave your career and do Dawah work to truly succeed in Akhirah?!

What if you don’t have any big goals and dreams but really want to live a purposeful fulfilling SIMPLE life as a Muslim?

You don’t know.

“I am currently a PhD student. I always keep in mind and ask myself all the time how I make time for Dunya but not much for Akhirah which makes me feel guilty. The other issue I have is lack of focus and unclear goal.” — Muhammad

“I’m busier than most people, I really don’t have time”

You are stressed with work, work two jobs, have a huge family and are basically are TOO BUSY TO BREATHE.

Why should you listen to what these “productivity speakers” have to say when they don’t even understand your personal situation?

And how much time will this take? You don’t have time to do the regular stuff, how will you make time for an additional self-project?? You push it off for later and convince yourself you’ll do it when you have more time. 

“[I have] too many obligations and lack of time and energy.” SHAMIM M.

“I don’t want to waste more time trying as none of the tips and tricks I apply have a long-lasting effect!”

You’ve tried so many time management tips. None of them helped for longer than a short while. Why would it be any different now? Plus it’s such a waste of time reading about productivity. Rather than learning better time management, you just end up wasting even more time looking for a solution.

“I have tried multiple techniques that I have read on Google and I even went with those ‘Time Management’ and ‘To-do list’ apps but nothing was helpful.”  S.KHAN.

“It’s not a good time right now”

You can’t start something new right now: you may even have time but you are too lazy to do anything right now. Maybe one day when you are “more motivated”, you’ll do something about it.

Or maybe you have a little time- But you don’t want to spend the only FREE time you have working on yourself.

“Having more time in my day for faith focus. I am out of house from 6am to 7pm Monday to Friday. I have to balance family time and faith time after I get home only to have limited time then bed time and start the cycle, all over again” MUSLIM.

“I just need to figure this out first so I can do it right.”

You like to be “mentally prepared” before you do anything. You just aren’t ready to change your behavior.

You need to figure out everything before you jump in anything because you’re a perfectionist.

I can’t do anything “just like that”. I need to sort things out first, learn more and get as much info about it as possible so I can do it “perfectly”.

“I want to be consistent but I don’t want to keep doing the same thing every day.”

You want to be consistent, yes, but you don’t want to live a monotonous life following strict rules EVERY DAY such as “waking up early” blah. You also want to give more time to Deen but you don’t want to keep doing the same things every single day.

“I don’t like creating plans or routines because I want flexibility and spontaneity in my day. But I also want my day to have some sort of structure.”

“I feel so lazy doing [the] same thing everyday.”ANUM.

Do you see? There are so many barriers holding us back from getting started. And that’s why we start with these psychological barriers before we move on to the “Implementation of knowledge”. A step that many others don’t even know exists and can easily skip.

Next, we will give you the material, tactics and tools you need to bring the Balance Deen and Dunya system into your 24-hours— so that it saves you at least an hour per day to do whatever you want.

 

We’ll work on your energy- how to match daily tasks to your energy levels so you don’t lost time procrastinating? How to deal with laziness and burnouts? Sleep-wake cycles and lots more.

We hand you the self-disciplinary tools to control yourself from wasting time, and push yourself to do things you need to do but don’t want to. Procrastination, distractions, self-control, addictive habits- all of it.

And finally, advanced task management strategies that will help you excel in your career and complete all your goals (from start to finish)- How to create personalized routines or prioritize between your goals?

The BALANCE DEEN AND DUNYA SYSTEM

      You have goals and dreams you want to follow in this Dunya? It gives you the flexibility to follow your career in Dunya without losing connection to Allah S.W.T periodically

      THE CONTROL

      It gives you control of how you spend your time so you know where it’s going, how to save more and even grow your time with the help of barakah.

      AND PEACE OF MIND

      A sense of self-satisfaction after you’ve spent your day in a way that you’re actually proud of.

      And now I want to share all that I’ve learned- with you.

      WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST MUSLIM YOUTH PROGRAMME?

      Instead of hiring great Muslim writers to shower you with poetry and Islamic songs about our work, I’ll be downright honest with you about what we have to offer:

      It all comes down to three things:

      #1: Time-tested Material:

      I spend months sweating over my material before it reaches you. That’s why you see only one piece of content per week.

      That’s why you don’t see me spending hours on every social media platform out there ranting “WORK HARDER” or “STOP BEING LAZY”.

      Instead, I work hard to craft REAL solutions to your problems- problems that may seem “regular” to the common eye, but are making you miserable (for example; being a perfectionist is a casual term we like to throw around, but it adds stress on you to the point of overwhelm. How do you fix it?)

      # 2: Real results from Real Muslims

      It’s one thing to claim to help other Muslims. It’s another thing to ACTUALLY DO it. Here’s what my some of my students have to say:

      After facing failures in my personal life as well as in my academics I had given up on myself. I prayed to Allah to guide me since I really had no clue what to do with my life. There where a lot of inspirational videos I could look up to…inspiring stories and books but nothing helped…. everybody taught me what to do, but the big question was How….then I don’t remember how, I found The Muslim Youth Programme. It really helped me figure out everything…and helped me to improve myself in my Deen as well as in my Dunya, to move ahead in life and stop regretting.

      And here’s what some of my best students from my productivity Bootcamp have to say:

      I am a 27 yrs old woman who suffers from a chronic illness since birth… with that came depression and anxiety ( I was missing out on a lot due to hospital stays and self doubt). For the last 10 years since I left school I have had no confidence to do anything for myself (studying,career) I would make ‘plans’ to do so every year, but nothing would come of them!

      Since doing your course [bootcamp] I have gained confidence and also planned efficiently to do an Islamic course for beginners! I start on November 3rd In’Sha’Allah! I am nervous as anything but In’Sha’Allah I WILL NOT BAIL!!! After this In’Sha’Allah I plan to continue and reach my goal which is to teach children Islam!

      Allah helped [me] by giving me your knowledge, wisdom and kindness which lead on to give me some sort of purpose and joy in life again! For this I will never know how to repay you! All I have are duas for you.

      This Bootcamp helped me take the ‘First Steps’ towards my goals and trust me the first steps are always the hardest. Each Video in the Bootcamp helps you understand where you are lacking behind and how to overcome the problem. I was so lazy [in] doing simple day to day activities and I just [didn’t] have any motivation and I didn’t even know where exactly I [was] wrong. This Bootcamp helped me understand the problem and helped [me] in making goals. Alhamdulillah I am starting to achieve my goals now. Everybody tells you to be more productive and active and nobody says How to do it and trust me this Bootcamp is the answer for that question.

      — HEEBA KHAN

      # 3: Honest support

      How many programs out there serve you with information packages and then— they disappear on you?

      Countless.

      I know that working on yourself can get downright hard at times. It makes a whole lot of difference to get some emotional support from someone who’s been there. I wish I was given some a few years back. That’s why I make it my priority to reply to my readers and help them out when they get stuck.

      Sometimes all it takes is a helping hand…

      Aimen is the kindest, sweetest and the most helpful person you’ll ever meet. I can never thank her enough. I’m a very shy and reserved person but with her I feel I can share my problems.

      — HEEBA KHAN

      Ultimately, what truly sets us apart is the results from our students.

      I’m an engineering student who is away from her family and friends. Being able to balance Deen and dunya, studying and Ibada without forgetting to leave some family time is a real challenge. And it’s even more challenging for someone who struggles with internet addiction. It was so easy for me to fall into a cycle of time wasting and guilt. I already knew that to reach my goals I had to do 2 things. Hold on to my Deen and organize my life through planning. That’s where Muslim Youth Programme helped me. That’s how I learned that I have been planning everything the wrong way, and that the overwhelming daily list of tasks was void and pointless. I had to give it a purpose for it to work… which I only realized through the Bootcamp.

      Are you ready to start spending your time the right way? 

      DON’T FORGET TO CHECK YOUR INBOX: Starting Monday– after years of work and thousands of hours invested on testing- I’m opening doors to the beta-version of my flagship course Balance Deen and Dunya- an online program on balancing your time between Deen and Dunya.

      Remember- It’ll only be open until Thursday, after which  the beta-program is never coming back. It’s the most comprehensive course I’ve created up to date. I want to show you that you CAN balance your time today like the Prophet S.A.W and his companions did 1400+ years ago.
