        • @Hameed – To destroy a bad habit, the best way to do it is to replace it with an ‘antidote’ rather than simply saying you shouldn’t do the bad habit anymore. For example, if you would like to stop losing your temper so frequently/gain control over it, you can put down a habit such as: recite a’oodhu billahi min ash-shaytanir-rajeem each time I start to get angry, drink water/perform wudu, and lie down if possible.

          The same applies with good habits. List them down in the Habitator (in their respective categories) and everyday you abide by this habit, tick that day. Each day you do not abide by it, mark it with an ‘X’. The goal is to have checks on all 30 days so that that new habit has become a part of you.

            Asalaamualykum wa ragmatullah he wa barakaatu. Algamdullilah. JAZAAKUMULLAH TO THE CEO MR FARIS AND TO THE PRODUCTIVE MUSLIMS. GUYS THE IMAAM ABU PRODUCTIVE IS BRILLIANT MASHA A ALLAH. These advices and positive comments from following the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings from Allah be upon him can prevent injuries, violence and death by the grace of Allah. Yesterday a young man was gunned down cowardly after an argument . The assailant is three times bigger than the victim. 26/1/2015- we come from Allah and to him is our return. News from cape town South Africa. May protect you. May Allah protect all mankind ameen from satan. Bismillah. ALGAMDULLILAH.

          • brother I enlist my bad habit which I decided to give up! but reality is that I don’t go through my bad habit list & just collect dust! then I become frustrated & don’t give up. my bad habit & can’t formed my good habit as well ?

  1. Alhamdulillah, great!
    For this year resolution I create a salah tracker, nothing great like this, just a basic mic word table. But it’s good to know that I’m not alone in using table to track things. LOL.
    My friend also advised me manage my time according to the salah time, which I think, is a great way to manage the day. :)

  2. Great idea. i have a question about whether we keep track of actions for only a month or we always add them with the new habits that we want to form just to keep ourselves in check. Or does doing that defeat the fact that it’s a habit that it should be second nature by then ?    

    • Once you get the hang of them and they are part of your “unconscious” habit, you don’t need to add to them anymore. If you find yourself lapsing people and loosing the good habits, you can always add them later. But to be on the safe side, keep the habit on the habitator for at least 2 months.

    I have a suggestion: if you could help us by giving a list of the good habits that we should adopt in order to be a productive muslim, and common bad habits that we need to get rid of (which many people may not be aware of).

    I have one small suggestion I recommend that an arabic version of productive muslim be produced because in my opinion, the ppl struggling the most w productivity of are the arabs.
    That might make a real difference in the ummah.

    • @Alomoe – Thanks for your feedback! Ameen to your duas.

      We do have an Arabic translation project of Productive Muslim. Unfortunately, they’re currently facing some technical issues with their website so it’s currently down. However, they’re active on Facebook. You could follow them and get in touch with them here:

  12. MashaAllah, wish I had found this earlier, it’s great! Jazakallah!!

    Lots of non-Arabs also struggle with productivity, like me, unfortunately :( but this website has /given great tips, Alhamdullilah.

    You are helping so many people! May Allah reward you for your superb work (MashaAllah)! Ameen!

  16. his is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the excellent work.

  17. Easily, the article is actually the best topic on this registry related issue. I fit in with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your next updates. Just saying thanks will not just be sufficient, for the fantasti c lucidity in your writing. I will instantly grab your rss feed to stay informed of any updates.

  18. Salaam aleikum Mohammed Faris, i have a problem with myself, i find it hard to save my money whenever i earn it from any source, be it from a charity source or work done, i get it much easier to hang out with friends and drink cheap liquor and cheap wine and get drunk, the money wont last long anyway even if it is Kshs. 10000, it takes only three days. So the main problem is here, prior to having or earning any cash, i usually make a price list of valuables that are essential basically like clothes, shoes, sanitary oils, perfume and things that cud help me, nowever when i get the money i tend to forget everything until the money finnishes up, my eyes open again. Can you find an answer to me. Jaybeatz Draqo, Kenya, Nairobi. Alhamdulilah.
