With the exception of “guest posts” written by others (see the bottom of this page), The Productive Muslim Company owns the content on this website and other company affiliated websites (e.g. BarakahAcademy.com). The content is copyrighted to the company’s name.
We want to strike the appropriate balance between getting our content widely distributed and adopting a Barakah Culture “Abundance Mindset”, while at the same time protecting our intellectual property rights and preserving the growth and sustainability of the company.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
Without Our Permission
You are free to do the following without our permission:
- Link to our website or any specific post on our site.
- Extract and re-post less than 250 words from our site, on any other site, provided you link back to our original post.
- Print our posts in any non-commercial publication (e.g., company newsletter, mosque newsletter, class syllabus, etc.), provided you include this copyright notice: “© 2020, The Productive Muslim Company. All rights reserved. Originally published at www.productivemuslim.com.”

Not Without Our Permission
You must have our express written consent to do any of the following:
- Use our content for commercial purposes, including selling or licensing printed or digital versions of our content.
- Alter, transform, or build upon this work.
We do not permit the re-posting of my posts in their entirety. This is because Google penalizes websites for publishing duplicate content. It often can’t tell which site hosts the original, so we risk getting penalized for granting permission.
We don’t allow the translation and publication of our work in other languages without written consent. At the moment, all translation requests are put on hold. We simply don’t have the resources to validate all the translation requests.
Guest bloggers retain the copyright to the posts they write. The above permission guidelines do not apply to their work. If you are interested in re-posting or publishing their content, you must contact them directly. We cannot serve as a broker, agent, or contact point.
If you have some use for our content that is not covered here, please email us.
