What's The Latest?

I've been extremely busy in keeping myself busy. I haven't had the opportunity to write up like I intended. But just a quick overview on what I've been up to.

I've been blessed with this ability to do well whenever I fully apply myself to something. One thing I'm continuously doing is to become the best version of myself in every single way possible. Breaking this down to a simple 3 tier model. Physically, mentally and spiritually would be the main points of interest

I was always very fit and strong. I decided I wanted to shred up, so I went away and worked a 6-pack. I can officially say I've been in the best shape of my life. I'm right where I've always wanted to be. I can now do muscle ups! I'm working my way to a front lever and one-hand handstand. I 'm not so sure if this would impress a suitor but it keeps me busy.

I've had some seriously chilled mantra going on. I don't feel stressed even when the going gets tougher. I've been continuing with self-development from different perspectives and paired up with Islamic principles, I've found new ways in becoming:
i) A better human being.
ii) A better Muslim.
iii) A more effective communicator.

I've maintained a steady flow of ibadah. Although studying tafsir had taken a hit. Mufti who taught us for 3 years was kicked out of the Masjid in standing up against falsehood. We live in strange times. After putting in 3 years and studying 5 days a week, I'm still missing half a qur'an. There is no one teaching tafsir around here. So I'm currently open and looking for some new opportunities. I've found that I'm certainly not reading as much as I once did. I feel more consumed in other areas of my life.

This has become easier. However, the tests have become increasingly unbearable. More on this another time.

I did get the opportunity to travel, granted it wasn't for as long as I would have liked but it was almost half way around the world with 3 brothers, so I welcomed it with open arms.

That's all for now. I will report back on some findings.



  1. Google bayyinah and try the Nouman Ali Khan tafsir he uploads onto there, he's good

  2. I'm a huge fan of his work, masha'Allah. His ability to explain things is phenomenal. I've been through most of his material.

    I'm looking for someone I could actually sit with learn from on a more personal level.
