  1. Actually, I’m worse than Ali. He at least studies for 2 mins before taking a 2 hour break, but I had been sitting at my desk for 4 hours reading this (instead of playing Black-Ops!) never touching a book.
    Shhhh, Mom thinks I’m studying!

    But anyway, I’m super motivated now after reading this series and I plan to start studying seriously now from today inshaaAllah and make mom proud of me. Mom will be indebted to you, Sister Lily!

  2. Masha Allah it was an amzinggggg storyyyyyy!!!

    This story is fun, inspiring and so relatable at the same time. They should probably make a movie out of this.

    A very great job Mrs. Lilly!

      • 😊

        This story really inspired me.
        I promised myself to stop procrastinating and start being productive from 2018. And it really worked! The first day of 2018 was one of the most productive days I have ever had in high school!

        Jazakillah again! And to the whole Productive Muslim team too.

  3. Wow, Subhaanallah.
    This is such an amazing story. I particularly really like (ok I actually LOVE – but that’s kind of awkward to type you know) how all those helpful articles were spun into the story. Such a great inspiring read.

    May Allah bless you & reward you with much better sister, well done.

    • My pleasure Sheriff. Thank you so much!
      It’s a really cool system isn’t it? How the website integrates related articles and makes them so easy to find
      MashAllah the Productive Muslim team is doing an amazing job and I’m honored to be part of that team!
      May Allah bless us all

  4. Finale!!! Already?

    When I saw finale, there was this sad and excited feeling I felt, I was sad because it has come to an end, excited to read another episode (as always).

    I have never read a piece like this EVER, its outstanding, it deserves an Award,SERIOUSLY.
    Lulls, you are the best.
    Love you a bunch Lilly, you are definitely my best writer of the year.
    May Allah grant you more knowledge and guidance.

    • Okay now I’m completely speechless….
      Honored, humbled, overjoyed…
      But mainly speechless :)
      Thank you so much Mufeedah
      My Allah fill your life and heart with joy the way you’ve filled mine

      All my love

  5. Your work is so addictive mashaAllah. Its so cool how you teach people things in a very entertaining way. Lilly! I need a series for stay at home mums. How do motivate yourself when your goals of keeping home clean the grown ups and kids fed and educated seem so average! I love my role but some tasks just never end!

  6. Asalam u alaykum Sister Lilly,

    I loved the series. Entertaining and meaningful at the same time. You should turn it into a comic book and continue Ali’s growth in other areas.

    I would love to hear his family’s story too. Maybe his father’s struggle with anger management and his mother’s struggle with being a SAHM, while trying to keep up with being an intellectual and growing as her own person.

    May Allah bless you with continued success.

  7. The book was honestly so awesome. I read all of the parts and I have never laughed this much … ending was great, loz … it really taught me a lot (is the spelling right?), too … at first I wasn’t too sure about the book, but now I’m so glad I read it … Alhumdulilah!

  8. The book, I HAVEN’T STARTED EITHER, was honestly so awesome. I read all of the parts and I have never laughed this much … ending was great, loz … it really taught me a lot (is the spelling right?), too … at first I wasn’t too sure about the book, but now I’m so glad I read it … Alhumdulilah!

  9. You are such a great writer! All of your series are so amazing. I thought of just reading this story for fun but this story has changed me..your series have always influenced me in some way and has made me stronger in my faith. You are my top author and I hope one day I’ll be able to write just like you. Keep on writing so that I can read more of your stories!

  10. Subhan Allah what a great series it was !! May Allah rewards you with all his mighty blessing and endless bounties that he has that can never end. this story is so real to me but opposite in sequence.that’s the same thing I see with the teens in my neighbors all day whole year wasting their precious life to nothing. the story was plotted so cleverly that everything bit of it seems to be so real. really inspirational to all irrespective of age.
    I was once a bright student in my high school but after my Leukemia treatment of 4 years so far I think I have ruined my life from bad to worst ever. Even though I pray and study Islam regularly but i don’t think that it’s working. there is a lot I have to say and I really need help. if you can please personally email me and counsel me I will be very grate full to you.
    Jazakillahu Khaira

  11. Congratulations Lilly what an amazing story! The part that I think relates to me is when Mr. Frank gave Ali the lecture about achieving his potential. Do you have any others like this?

  12. As salaamu alaikum,

    Barak Allahu Feeki, Sr. Lilly for writing and sharing another awesome series! “I Haven’t Started Either” is very entertaining and insightful overall, and it’s definitely a great series to share with younger siblings/family members who are teenagers & procrastinators. I’m planning to share it with my younger sister and see what she thinks of it too, in shaa Allah.

    Looking forward to reading your next series (in shaa Allah),

    Sr. Jessica S. Dukharan
