      I need some advice plz, this Ramadaan we decided to feed 60-80 families at a children’s hospital in Cape Town South Africa every night as well as provide Suhoor packs to muslim families staying over at the hospital Alhamdulillah. To end off Ramadaan with a bang we decided to provide Eid lunch for the parents Bi iethniellah

    • The story of Athaar from Sweden has a picture of someone doing the tashahud with the left hand. Why didn’t they use the right hand? Astaghfirulah

  2. Masha’Allah! Alhamdulillah, the Almighty and Most Merciful, for strengthening us and blessing us by bringing us close to Him. I am almost at tears, because I am so pleased to know that our beloved Prophet’s ummah is doing wonderful. And I am not surprised at all, but only extremely touched because I have been very sad due to our suffering brothers and sisters around the world. May Allah swt – and I ask Him in the sake of His true religion and Noble Qur’an and His love for His messenger Muhammad and his honorable progeny and loved ones (pbut) – to bless us with His pleasure and to carry our levels to the levels of His beloved messengers and awliyaa. May your prayers and fasting be multiplied, brothers and sisters. Wa’alhamdulillah.

  3. Ma sha Allah its really nice and inspiring to see our Muslim brothers and sisters working so hard, helping the people in need….may Allah subhanahu was ta’ala bless them all….aameen

  4. Mashallaah, subhanallah ! what a great job and exemplary work .. very informative & interesting article. Hats off to you all.
    It touched my heart and i am extremely happy to see all. May Allaah (swt) reward you for all those deeds and increase more charity work from you and inspiration for others.
    thanks & keep it up! Well done.

    jazakumullah khair.

  5. I love all the stories Mon sha Allah but I love the low syndrome lady most, it really touched my heart how much we complained as an able body but give less to the commandment of Allah , may Allah forgive us all our short comings and make us a better Muslim, always proud of my deen, Islam – peace!

  6. Am sooo short of words . Mashaa Allah Tabaarakallah. I pray Allah guide us and grant us heart full of kindness. We ask Allah to reward each and everyone who has done goodness for his sake and for him to grant us jannah by his mercy. Ameen.

  7. As Salaam Alaikum
    Rahmadhan Mubarak !☺
    All the stories were inspiring however, the one thay inspired me the most was the story of Aisyah! Her story was a reminder for me to be grateful to Allah(swt) for His mercy and many blesdings, and to not take anything for granted. Aisyah’s story made me think about how grateful I am that Allah(swt) has been so good to me. I had stroke a year and half ago Allah allowed me to fully recover and observe Ramadhan! I am very inspired to help my family, neighbors and other neighbors in need.
    Ramadhan Mubarak !☺

  8. As salaamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah to everyone at Productive Muslin, Ma shaa Allah it’s quite impressive that you ran the challenge which helps us to know the many good things happening in our ummah. I was very touched by the Bosnian family getting somewhere to live. When the brother made dua for them to Allah ( swt ) for a home I thought that Allah ( swt ) will indeed accept it because nothing is too difficult for Him. And Alhamdulillah Allah ( swt ) provided them a house to stay as well. May Allah ( swt ) bless the American lady who donated her house, ameen. Without doubt Allah ( swt ) blesses the down pressed and ever hearer of prayers. May Allah ( swt ) give us a productive last days of Ramadan, ameen. May Allah ( swt ) help Productive Muslim in your efforts. Jazakallahumma khair, Asif

  9. Salaam!
    All Praises,Glory and adorations be to the Almighty Lord! Alhamdulilah! I’m so proud of the achievements of each of the contributors. May Allah accept each and everyone’s deeds and efforts as an act of ibadah and grant us all ( contributors and the rest of the Ummah) forgiveness, mercy and reward in this life and the hereafter!
    Its very difficult to pick the most striking because I really appreciate the efforts put in, no matter how small. However; five stories really struck me:
    The story of Aina Hisam from Malaysia; about Ahsiyah the girl with the down syndrome brought tears to my eyes. Talk about ability in disability and I love the sister’s attitude towards the condition; seeing it as a gift from Allah SWT!
    Seher Haque’s story on sharing Ramadan with her 2.5 yr old toddler was very touchy. Engaging a toddler to take flowers and chocolates to non Muslim neighbours and tell them about Ramadan takes a lot of courage!
    Hidayah Martinez Jaka’s story on the ‘ADAMS Green Team’ was very innovative and shows how as Muslims we can be problem solvers and contribute our ‘quota’ towards an eco friendly environment.
    Kerim Kalamujia’s story on taking the Bosnian family off the street in such a short time was very touchy. It shows how as individuals, we can make a difference in someone’s life by using our God given wisdom.
    Mahvish Irfan from the U.S’; story on Soles for Souls; saving lives , one shoe at a time; was very awe inspiring too; ‘cos a lot of us take something as simple as owning a pair of shoes for granted!
    Its difficult to pick one and I love the fact that Muslims are getting more productive round the world. Congrats to the ProductiveMuslim team! May Allah reward you all.

  10. MashaAllah very inspirational stories. Loved loved all of them. But the story about the homeless Bosnians just brought so much tears to my eyes. How the bosnian woman in US just gave out her apartment without hesitation or even knowing this people was truly amazing.
    May Allah reward all our good deeds. Amin.
    Thank you productive Muslim for this inspiration.
    I’ll probably try gifts to the non – Muslim neighbors for eid with my 2 year old.

  11. MashaAllah! And I thought I was doing okay this Ramadhan, astaghfirullahal’adziim :” Thankyou productive Muslim and all of you who’ve shared their very, very inspiring stories. May Allah grants us the chance and ability to make the most out of this last third of Ramadhan. Amen.

  12. Jazzakallahu khairan! Different inspirators from across the globle, gingering us, how dedicated they re this month of ramadan. Masha Allah, what an inspired stories? Alhamdulillah!.

  13. Asslamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu.Very Inspiring activities and also very creative by our youn Mulims.It really touched my heart.I also involve myself in such activities but at a very low scale.Distributed 20 Ramadan Food packs,40kg of dates and reached out to some desperate families to assist with Zakat money.Each day I assist in the Iftar preparation of about 80 males and females with children.May Allaah SWT reaward our Muslim Ummah in abundance with the work their are doing to please Allaah SWT in The Blessed Month Of Ramadan. Wassalam .

  14. masha Allah all the stories were very inspiring, may Allah bless each and everyone of those who helped the needy in this blessed month. Aameen :)

  15. Most wonderful,moving stories and pictures! Shows the Brotherhood in Islam AND that we are not alone. This is the spirit
    the West wants to subdue and remove!
    I had a kidney transplant in 1998 and have only been allowed to fast for the past few years.Iwas in hospital for a year and completely helpless for most of that time. This year I have been so hyped up and on a continuous high. Cant wait for the day to begin and put in the best I can! I feel I dont want to miss anything and I wish I was able to hold Ramadaan back for longer! And now I’m even more motivated!

  16. Posts like these make me so proud of being a Muslim <3 May we ALL meet in al Firdaous, and get to see our Lord everyday for eternity, ameen :) huggss! (to sisters only of course lol)

  17. Mashaallah, Tabarakallah to all the contributors; each in their own unique ways. Their stories are very inspirational and give me the encouragement to start to give and do more for the society. In Shaa Allah I will emulate all these ways in doing good deeds and make it a family project. Mabrook to Productive Muslim for the wonderful initiative. Barakallah Hu Feek.

  18. Subhanallah!!! No doubt these stories were beyond inspiring, but truly the most inspiring one was about Asiyah from Malaysia, suffering from Down Syndrome. Having learnt and read about Down Syndrome, it truly is beautiful and amazing to see her fasting the whole day – truly an inspiration! It makes me more certain that no matter what you’re suffering from, if you truly have the will-power to do it, with the help of Allah (swt), you surely will! And she’s proven this perfectly, MashaAllah!
    May Allah (swt) give her a long life, grant her success in all her future endeavours and admit her into Jannatul Firdous. Aameen Ya Rabb!
    And the ProductiveMuslim team, you’ve once again nailed it, in uniting the Muslim Ummah and bringing about people who are truly an inspiration to the whole of mankind. Allahumma baarik alaykum and may Allah (swt) keep you persistent in your activities. Aameen! And may He help me in joining your team one day. Aameen!

  19. Sobhanallah my favourite story was the Malaysian person with down syndrome. Sobhanallah wa bihamdeh. It is so great she fasted whole day and read 20 rakaat of Tarawih +Witr. Mashallah. May Allah give her lots of blessing in this World and Next. From Amirah from UK

  20. This is truly wonderful, every story is surely worth sharing. My ultimate favourite was Kerim Kalamujic’s story, it completely changed the lives of, not one, but three people and looks like the good deed won’t end here, Ma shaa Allah. بارك الله فيه

  21. Sister Mahvish Irfan from US,you are doing a good job siz.May Allah reward you with the best of rewards.♥

    Also brother Kerim Kalamujic from bosnia,thats a great job bro.Be because you know how it is to be without.♥
    Lots of love.Ramadhan karim and as we approach Eid,be happy and help others too♡♡

  22. Masha Allah, Amazing stories. Really heart touching one of Aysha, Bosnian Family. And different people how they are engaged productively in different manners. Really nice. I am working if Telecom Organization , and I see that there are many muslims. However, tragedy is that too many not bothered about fulfilling “SALAH”. I am trying my best to convey about important of “SALAH”. Because in this technology driven digitized world all are busy with this “DUNYA” on accumulating things for temporary world.

    Once again, productive muslim has nailed it. I have started going through articles/ blogs only few months ago. And I see around 8K likes in facebook. I am sure, there is huge reward for good deeds carried out by productive muslim.

    I am waiting for the book to be published on Productive Muslim, which is very important for us to transform ourselves and become productive mentally, physically, personally, socially, emotionally, spiritually productive.

  23. Maa Sha Allah….
    Inspiring and motivating….
    “Our Lord, accept [this] from us. Indeed You are the Hearing, the Knowing.and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.”

  24. Great article Indeed. Alhamdulillah. I have good news for all. I have received job offer from Jeddah. I request all my productive muslim readers to pray for me to ease my further processing on visa , medical, etc etc. It would be great for me if I can start working at Jeddah, Makkah and Madinah very soon… I am sure, I will be more productive phsyically, emotionally, intellectually, personally, socially, professionally and becoming closer to Allah more and more.

    I am trying my best to spread among my friends about this website and become more productive.

  25. Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu everyone! Jazakum Allahu khairan to all the inspiration to become more productive in our lives specially on this month of Ramadan.
    I hope to keep in touch with Hafsa Chinoy to learn more about the activities they did. I’m sure that it will help more Muslims if I can learn from her and teach it to others afterwards.
    I am from Yanbu Al-Bahar here in KSA.
    Jazakum Allahu khairan again Productive With Allah Azza Wa Jal is your immense reward in this life and akhirah. Allahumma Ameen. Taqabballah Minna Wa Minkum.

  26. Assalamo Alaikum

    I haven’t read this completely but all of this is just AWESOME!!
    May Allah bless it, accept it and grant sincerity to all of us.
    May He enable us to do good throughout the year and in Ramadan specially!
