Leverage Emotional Well-Being for Peak Performance & Productivity

We live in an increasingly negative and distracted world. We are not able to focus, and we get triggered by negative feedback easily.

Many of our responses are reactionary and not based on conscious thinking and this impacts our productivity, performance, and well-being.

As Muslims, we know that consciousness, awareness, and mindfulness of Allah سبحانه وتعالى (i.e. Taqwa) is at the heart of our faith. Yet, many of us lack the practical skills to practice Taqwa in order to regulate our emotions and redirect negative thinking towards calmness and contentment, especially in our VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world.

The Mindfulness Masterclass will help you develop the practical knowledge and skills to regulate your emotions and feel empowered, present, and have more peace of mind across all areas of your life.

Our Students ❤️ This Program

Brother Wadud was an amazing teacher. Very detailed and organized. He seemed to genuinely care about us and made sure we benefit from al the mind practices.”

Kareema Imam

This is such amazing class to attend because it gets you centered and gives you inner clarity and comfort... coming from an Islamic perspective, it felt safe to consume this study without having to filter out Buddhism or any non-Islamic thinking.

Gemi Hartojo

This is a life-changing class... I'm more present in my Salat, I'm practicing mindfulness on daily basis using some of Br. Wadud's practices, and I'm approaching life from being energy rather than doing energy, AND... I'm able to accomplish more!

Amal Essader

“This Mindfulness Masterclass is the only class that provides the Islamic perspectives and contexts and supported by specific verses of the Quran. Wadud has a unique blend of knowledge on Islam and psychology as well as his actual experience on the subject matter which makes him the right person to teach this masterclass.”
