Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
I honestly cannot say when exactly I discovered Ayeina but it has been a while. I finally ordered some copies of this awesomeness.
It is a mini gratitude journal designed by the amazing duo at Ayeina. The cover looks like a blackboard, and the pages are filled with beautiful, colourful and brilliant illustrations to read and reflect on. The illustrations make it appealing to children. The book measures 6×6″ so can be moved around easily and it can also fit into even small purses.
It has about 47 pages and is divided into four sections;
◇Alhamdulillah for basic necessities
◇Alhamdulillah for ties that bind (relationships)
◇Alhamdulillah for Islam
◇Alhamdulillah for everything
To inspire you to start living with an attitude of gratitude, the journal requires you to fill in something you are grateful for, every day for a month. Just one Alhamdulillah a day… Then there is a note box for you to reflect on your month of gratitude. How did you feel? What changed for you?
As I went through the illustrations, I realised that Allah has blessed me with so much that goes unnoticed. With social media reminding you of how fabulous the life of everyone else is, the sense of entitlement that this generation comes with and bad news always making headlines, we need to focus more on the good we have been granted by Allah. This good that we take for granted.
This mini soft-bound cuteness, with its beautiful illustrations and simple captions, might be what you need to refill your cup of happiness. It did great for me Alhamdulillah! Plus saying Alhamdulillah is an act of Ibadah.
I will recommend this to everyone irrespective of age, religion or troubles. Everyone could do with a lot more positivity. The book makes a great gift…..I mean with Eid round the corner 😉.
I will be giving away a free copy soon inshaAllah.
What are you grateful for today?
The more the attitude of gratitude you develop, the more the blessings shower on you – or maybe it’s just that you’ll start seeing the blessings in places you never saw before.
Until next time,
