Great audiobook

I read the kindle edition last year but always wanted to re-read it. The audiobook made it easier for me to be able to consume the knowledge again.

Great book highly recommended. I'm listening to it now for the third time since I bought it.

Would love to get another book from you.

Productivity manual for every Muslim

Faris takes inspirations from well known and successful psychology and self development preachers such as Brain Tracy and combines it with Islamic teachings to guide the reader on living a meaningful purpose filled life that is oriented towards social focus in addition to self development and proper use of time.

I will recommend this book to anyone who is interested in increasing their productivity. This book will not solve all your productivity problems but it will give you practical tips and template to work from.

Excellent book.

I've read my fair share of business and self help books and so many promote an aspect of spirituality. One popular book even said "it doesn't matter what you believe just believe (or have faith) in something" So What Mohammed Faris has done is spell out in a very well written book, that we already have the faith, he details not only the importance of spirituality, but that these self help messages, methods and techniques in these western books have been taught to us already by God and his Prophet SAWS, and provides a source, translation and short tafsir for each of his points. I will be purchasing all his books from now on, even if it's just a thank you for this one.

A great reminder with lots of practical tips

It is always good to have someone remind you of were you stand and how to move forward and even better when they give you practical tips that you can test out straight away. I found myself stopping the audiobook and writing a lot of these tips and doing them as I listened

The only resource you need on productivity

I have been reading and listening to books on self-development for several years now, and they have completely changed my life. This books takes it to the next step by combining the two very important aspects of spirituality and productivity. Faris refers to several books and concepts that I have read about and incorporated in my life. I already had knowledge about a lot of the information he discusses related to exercise, nutrition and sleep, but then again I have read books and books on each these aspects. If you want one single guide to have access to all of the critical information you need to live a healthy, productive and meaningful life, then this book is a great choice.

How do you integrate productivity for Allah sake?

If you could sum up The Productive Muslim in three words, what would they be?

Allahs' Productive Slave.

What other book might you compare The Productive Muslim to and why?

Three personal favorite and effective productivity books to compare with. The Productivity Project by Chris Bailey, Getting Things Done by David Allen, and Getting Results the Agile Way by J. D. Meier. The Productive Muslim book helps me strengthen and internalize the importance of being productive as a Muslim. The goal is not for material gains. Results are an outcome of Allahs' will. Investing in being productive to seek Allahs' pleasure and Use productivity as an act of worship. MashaAllah.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

While waiting for this audiobook release. I believe this audiobook needs to be read by the author himself, Mohammed Faris. Despite a very small unnoticeable narration pronounciation, his performance narrating the message was clear and easily absorb. Consistency in delivering his energy in his voice throughout the book. MashaAllah. TabarakAllah.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

A few times I got home and reaching the office car park, I was still in the car listening to complete the chapter. This is because there is just so much knowledge to reflect on from each chapter of the audiobook. Connecting the dots. MashaAllah.

Any additional comments?

I would like the publisher or author to upload the bibliography of the book accompanying this audiobook. Most of the reference made in the book needs to be checked and read deeper. Especially when author narrates the translation and quote from the Quran. I would like to know which Verse from which Surah it was Quote. JazakAllahu khair.

Inspirational, Practical & well structured

The author did a fantastic job of writing a complex topic of leadership, spirituality and productivity and distilling it into an exciting and inspiring book. I enjoyed the practical tools and applications shared in the book and can be easily implemented. Furthermore, the spiritual element and alignment with the true meaning of being useful not only at work but in many hats/roles we play in life were inspiring.

May Allah grant this author the strength, knowledge and wisdom to continue writing many books to inspire the creation of the Allah. I look forward to your next book.

Hard to sit through

Seems like click bait. Taking production tips from other books and putting Muslim in front of it doesn’t make it a great tie in. If a Muslim is beginning down the path of self development and hasn’t read much else in the field then it could be helpful, but anyone already down their journey will find this is a watered down version of a lot better books. Author should’ve paid a professional to narrate, he doesn’t have the voice for it. Sadly, I wouldn’t recommend.

The only book you'll need to actually do something with your life

I am a very lazy and unmotivated person, and this book addressed some serious issues from many unexpected angles that I would never have thought about. The book is comprehensive and brilliant that I started Implementing things from it right away and I saw amazing amazing progress, instantly. If you are a non productive Muslim like I am, then you need this book in your life right now. May Allah bless Mohammed Faris and reward him greatly for this beautiful gift to all of us.

Very productive, highly recommended. Especially during Ramadan

I was born in Jamaica W.I and grew up in Queens N.Y. Raised by a single Catholic mother, I converted to Islam in my 30’s. I receive much more recognition and positive inquisition through Islam. In particular during Ramadan, mainly from my non Muslim co-workers and associates whom are always very supportive, encouraging and astonished to watch the process from beginning to completion. If you are considering joining Islam or just participating in the observance of Ramadan, please let me bear witness and say that the awe from the many people studying you everyday is alone worth the undertaking. This is only a small portion of the many blessings which will come to you during this holy month. I read this book during Ramadan. It was very insightful and gave me more motivation to properly complete my fast. In addition I also gained knowledge on the importance of regular prayer, social prayer and voluntary prayer. That’s not to mention the main subject of productivity and everyday success which is the crux of each chapter
