  1. This article is so inspiring. :D
    but i have some question about, how as a student myself divide my priority towards reading free genre books rather than academic books only.

    • i would advice fix some time like from 8-9:30 p.m. My Fav. Books Time n then challenge yurself 2 finish all ur academic studies before 8…in shaa Allah u will b more productive.

    • My advice is to read books before bedtime during those days specially when you don’t have exams looming over your head or any deadlines for assignments.keep the book at ur bedside,snuggle in your covers and read for 15 -30 mins. You will develop the habit and also enjoy it.

  2. I have to say tha Allhamdulillah I LOVE reading, from novels to books or articles from which I will learn. Anyway this article is really helpful, I think it can really help to those who don’t have this habit. Unfortunatelly people nowadays, especially the kids who are growing up in this society (muslims or non muslims) don’t develop this habit because of all the tecnologies they have, phones, tables, video games etc. Anyway hope this article helps them as it’s really good.

  3. This came right on time, especially that we have the book fair nowadays in Cairo :)
    I love reading and the tips are very helpful and I’m definitely gonna share this with my friends who are not big fans of reading to help them.

  4. Reading has always been something as natural as breathing or talking for our family. From as young an age as I could remember, my parents would read to us, tell us stories at mealtimes to make us eat our food, and in whatever free time we had, when we weren’t running around in the garden, one of us three kids could always be seen with our head in a book. As we grew we read more. We devoured books. In year 3, we were reading Year 6 level books. We read anything we could get our hands on. Now that we’re all in university or work and barely have any time to read anything other than our lecture notes, I’m finding that I actually have to plan time for reading. But when one does get in that half an hour of reading in the middle of a busy week, oh the feeling of euphoria it gives you!

    Just merely – READ. Iqra.

  5. I need some advice too, I really love reading, but I have this weakness ‘i cant read cover to cover’ I only read articles on the net, in magazines or a few chapters in a book . my topic of interest is motivational articles, any suggestions on what book i should begin with? Thanks for this great article.

  6. Mashallah, this is article makes you want to start reading right away.
    I started reading on, and the first book I started reading was “Enjoy Your Life” by Sheikh Arifi. I am embarrassed to say it was the first time I had heard about that book and the the Sheikh, even though it sold in the millions all over the world. I am practically finished with it and didn’t leave out a page,that is how amazing the author is.

  7. Alhamdulilah Ȋ̝̊ found this website. It has been a wonderful source of information. Ȋ̝̊ can help but share with everymuslim Ȋ̝̊ know. It has changed my life in a positive way masha Allah. Jazakumllahu khaer to the team. Welldone!

  8. Assalammualaikum,

    Very nice article and very informative. What about reading novels? Is it alright to read fiction stories? I used to read novels. After my ‘awakening’, I’ve reduced in reading them. Cos I’m afraid of displeasing Allah(swt).

    What should i do?

    Thanks for the article.
