  1. creative thinking :D
    Sometimes ideas flow in so much that we feel it is unlikely to happen but then it seems a must to write to it down so that someday the idea could work.
    And it feels good to take time and reflect, pray and bring in some ideas coz’ it really boosts our energy spcly. the morning hours or even at times when we are about to sleep at night, great ideas come in, alhamdulilah.
    WE CAN IF WE BELIEVE WE CAN. Allah will make it easier, in sha allah.
    As the very part of the ummah, this creative thinking and working becomes our responsibility to become the change we wanna see :)

    Together towards a positive change…. in sha allah

  4. As-Salamalakum,

    I think this is a great idea to make creativity part of our lives, often it is ignored or undermined. Just out of curiosity, I want to know if there are any really good Islamic books on how to increase your creativity and be productive. I was also wondering if they are easy accessible, they don’t have be books, it can be any type of resources(i.e pamphlets, essays, articles and etc).

    JazakAllah Khair


  5. @ Usman. I don’t know of any islamic books on the topic that focus on the ‘how-to’, but there are some academic research papers and articles about the Islamic view on creativity. There is one paper from Yarmouk University in Jordan called ‘Islamic Perspective of Creativity’ and you should be able to find that online inshallah.

  6. I really liked the going outsite part, the woods or in the park. And the notebook part i think that can help me insja Allah.

    In fact i’am going to do that now. And see if i will get some new idea.

    Peace be on the ones that follow Quran and sunnah

  7. Assalamu Alaikum Maryam,
    I found your creative thinking series articles to be very beneficial and useful for my life. may shower his blessings to you in this life and the hereafter.


  8. Jazakallah khair,
    interesting, reflect is really a keyword here! Let us set aside a few minutes each day to ponder over Allah, His creation and learn to recognize ourselves and how we can improve and further contribute with a sprinkle of imagination!
