  1. Thank you for that reminder. It is easy to be harsh with ourselves, and how we treat ourselves tends to be reflective of how we are with others, even if we don’t mean to be.

    By the way, I love the Productive Muslimah girl with her purse and coffee! Very cute! (And still modest)

  2. Some articles only serve to reinforce a position I already hold. Others blow my mind away. This is a much needed resource to Muslims, especially myself. May Allah (swt) reward your efforts.

  3. Thank u for sms,Allah is most powerfull, the gracious,the merciful, the sustainer,,the Biggest planner for the Whole Universe,
    I am very power less except Him, Who helped me in dangers, miseries, give me food of every type and kind, give good living , grand me best children, I am too much thankful to Allah for which I have not words to thanks except my tears.
    Please Pray for me for my success of forgiveness and let us do a very minor jobs of true
    Muslims that our characters do not contrast our activities.
    ALLA HELP ALL . Salam.

  4. Assalamu alaykum

    Just wanted to say shukran for the article.

    In a world where women are often overloaded with images and ideals of what they should aspire to be (media being one example), it is so important that women begin to ‘love’ themselves; think positively; and really achieve what it is they have been put on this earth to do – whatever that may be for each individual. Women are the teachers of the next generation so it is imperative that they learn to think in a positive way in order to pass on this effect to others.

    Also, with self-respect comes respect from others.

    Jazak Allah khair for this timely article sister Sayeda. Keep doing what you’re doing.

  5. Assalaamu Aleykum! While i am appreciative of the various articles on topical issues under our Productive Muslim webpage, i was dismayed by the reference to the self reflections in this article akin to new year resolutions. The article started with the words ‘With another year coming to a close’ to which i ask which new year? Are we going back to imitating the Kuffars and celebrating the Julian calendar dates, including the new year? I thought this article would have been more appropriate some one and half months ago when we entered a new Hijrian year, 1435. For crying aloud, my apologies if this article was only intended for ladies!

    • At the risk of being accused of having negative thoughts in my earlier comments, I would like to express my appreciation at the good article. I particularly liked about the internal dialogue. I will InshaAllah share with my beloved wife who has a pattern of such negative words (including me!?)

  6. as salaam o alaikum,
    We behave like we think. this is so true. i have experienced that. it reallly affects us,how we think about ourselves. this article if implemented will really make someone change ones life and love oneself. MashaAllah well written! May we follow it to bring the change In sha Allah

  7. Asalam. So do we write in the book every 3 days? And how often do we get someone to check it? Jazakallah khairan for lovely article x

  8. Assalam alikum. I’m really excited to see all this self help work being done with an Islamic perspective. It’s giving me double the incentive and double the resolution than what I get from regular self help stuff. Plus I think young people could connect with the religion more through you as you are trying to incorporate Islam into their existing lifestyles as a whole rather than throwing difficult pieces of some other worldly information. They might even find it cool. May god gives you further energy and resolve always

  9. Really use ! I believe this is a hidayat from allah taala ! Came to me through this article.
    So its not my bad luck its negativity
    Its my internal negativity
