Good Habits take time to develop and Bad Habits take time to stop, this is why we developed The ProductiveMuslim Habitator to help you keep track of good habits (and bad habit)s and help you develop (or destroy) them. [Click for the tutorial]

How to use The ProductiveMuslim Habitator ?

The concept is pretty simple: Write down up to 5 habits you want to develop (or destroy) under the relevant headings in our worksheet. We have 3 main areas of habits:

  1. Spiritual Habits, e.g. Praying Tahajjud each night, fasting every Monday/Thursday, avoid being late for Salah, Praying in the Masjid.
  2. Physical Habits, e.g. Eating breakfast each morning, Jogging 20 minutes each morning, going to the gym.
  3. Social Habits, e.g. Visiting an Orphan/Widow offering help, Doing Dawah to 1 person at least per day, giving Charity, avoid getting angry/irritable.
Once you’ve described your habits, give yourself a tick for each day that you’ve stuck (orabandoned) the good (or bad) habit. Each tick = 1 point. The higher the total number of points, the more likely you’ll continue (or discontinue) with the good (bad) habit. Aim to get over 20 points each month for each habit. Ideally, you should aim for over 25 points.

        1. @Hameed – To destroy a bad habit, the best way to do it is to replace it with an ‘antidote’ rather than simply saying you shouldn’t do the bad habit anymore. For example, if you would like to stop losing your temper so frequently/gain control over it, you can put down a habit such as: recite a’oodhu billahi min ash-shaytanir-rajeem each time I start to get angry, drink water/perform wudu, and lie down if possible.

          The same applies with good habits. List them down in the Habitator (in their respective categories) and everyday you abide by this habit, tick that day. Each day you do not abide by it, mark it with an ‘X’. The goal is to have checks on all 30 days so that that new habit has become a part of you.

  1. Alhamdulillah, great!
    For this year resolution I create a salah tracker, nothing great like this, just a basic mic word table. But it’s good to know that I’m not alone in using table to track things. LOL.
    My friend also advised me manage my time according to the salah time, which I think, is a great way to manage the day. :)
    Thanx!

  2. Great idea. i have a question about whether we keep track of actions for only a month or we always add them with the new habits that we want to form just to keep ourselves in check. Or does doing that defeat the fact that it’s a habit that it should be second nature by then ?    

    1. Once you get the hang of them and they are part of your “unconscious” habit, you don’t need to add to them anymore. If you find yourself lapsing people and loosing the good habits, you can always add them later. But to be on the safe side, keep the habit on the habitator for at least 2 months.

    I have a suggestion: if you could help us by giving a list of the good habits that we should adopt in order to be a productive muslim, and common bad habits that we need to get rid of (which many people may not be aware of).

    1. ameen. JazakAllah khair!

  10. Asalamualaikum. dear ProductiveMuslim.
    I am in the making of planner 2013 made for one of my society projects, will be sold only to our Malaysian small community in Egypt. I would to ask for permission it is possible to have this habitator printed as one of its content? Jazakumullahu khairan.

    1. Walykum assaalam warehmatullah!

      Yes, you may as long as you mention ProductiveMuslim. com as the source of the worksheet.

  11. This is a great help for us muslims to be productive may Allaah bless those who made this website. Mashallaah. Jazakallaahu Khair for helping the ummah to be productive!
    and I suggest for an app for android Inshaa Allaah its gonna be a helpful app

    1. We don’t have any such plans yet as we’ve quite a few other projects underway. However, we do have in mind to – down the road – develop more Productive Muslims apps, in sha Allah! So stick around. ;)

  12. Productivemuslim.com is a very useful website..I benefited alot from your articles..may ALLAH increase you in reward and the ppl working alongside you…jazakum ALLAH kheir
    I have one small suggestion I recommend that an arabic version of productive muslim be produced because in my opinion, the ppl struggling the most w productivity of are the arabs.
    That might make a real difference in the ummah.

    1. @Alomoe – Thanks for your feedback! Ameen to your duas.

      We do have an Arabic translation project of Productive Muslim. Unfortunately, they’re currently facing some technical issues with their website so it’s currently down. However, they’re active on Facebook. You could follow them and get in touch with them here: https://www.facebook.com/ArabicProM

  13. MashaAllah, wish I had found this earlier, it’s great! Jazakallah!!

    Lots of non-Arabs also struggle with productivity, like me, unfortunately :( but this website has /given great tips, Alhamdullilah.

    You are helping so many people! May Allah reward you for your superb work (MashaAllah)! Ameen!
