Backstory: Blessings upon Blessings
When I visited the blessed city of Prophet Muhammad in November 2019, I set the intention of writing a manifesto for the Barakah Culture that we’re spreading globally as part of our new company direction. What better place can someone write a ‘Barakah’ Culture Manifesto than in the city of our Beloved Prophet who supplicated for this city saying:
“O Allah, shower blessings upon us in our city, and in our fruits, in our mudd and in our sa’s, blessings upon blessings” [Sahih Muslim]
And He said as Anas b. Malik reported that the Messenger said:
“O Allah, increase in Medina twice the blessings (You showered) on Mecca.” [Sahih Al Bukhari]
Thankfully -and all praise is due to the Decree of Allah -, I realized after arriving in Madinah that I forgot my writing journal and I only had a few scraps of hotel notepads to write down the manifesto!
Due to the limited resources, Allah inspired me to follow the Prophetic example of saying only a few words but capturing many meanings. So I sat from ‘Asr until Maghrib prayer in the Prophetic mosque writing, scratching, and re-writing until I came to the first draft of the manifesto with the Help of Allah .
After a few iterations with the help of my team and advisors, we were able to refine these words to precisely 100 words – alhamduliAllah.
We ask Allah to accept it from us and to put Barakah in these few words so that they spread globally and guide all those who read them towards living a life of Barakah and embracing the Barakah Culture.
