My brother gifted me this neat looking journal from the UK. I’m not entirely sure where he purchased it from, but I can always ask him if you’d like to know 😊

It’s not the typical journal/notebook I would pick up, aesthetic wise. However, I was looking for a notebook from my collection to use as a bullet journal for the rest of 2017, and after careful consideration decided to go ahead with this one.

ROCO 2017 Diary – Planner Review

ROCO 2017 Diary – Planner Review

For my first impression, I thought this 2017 planner/diary by ROCO was more on the drier side, aesthetic wise. As you may have seen me express on Instagram, hahah! 😅

Book Talk: Muhammad As If You Can See Him (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)

Book Talk: Muhammad As If You Can See Him (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)

The Prophet didn’t withhold his cheerfulness from anyone.

The humanness of the Prophet ﷺ was an elevating, radiant humanness.

Read Prophetic description (shama’il) before his biography (sira).

If we understand the Prophetic description (shamail), we can understand his life events (sira).

The Prophet: you don’t know him. If you knew him, you would love him–and your hearts would be full of this love.

Be beautiful people: live the Beauty of the Prophet ﷺ
