Hereâ€™s What Halalify Is All About
As Salaamu Aalaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu. I’m Maria Islam, the founder and main designer of Halalify Islamic Planners, and if you ever asked yourself:
â€˘ â€śWhat Hijri month are we on? and what are we supposed to do in it?â€ť
â€˘ â€śHow do I vet all that information and make it useful?â€ť
â€˘ â€śHow can I organize my schedule around worship?â€ť
â€˘ â€śHow can I make the most of my time?â€ť
â€˘ â€śHow do I get ready for Ramadan?â€ť
Or if youâ€™ve ever been overwhelmed and wanted to just get started but needed someone to do legwork and research for you and present it in an easy to use form (whether itâ€™s making the most of Ramadan, Muharram or just a beautifully designed notebook full of inspiration to doodle in)â€¦
â€¦Youâ€™re in the RIGHT place! InshaAllah.
Hereâ€™s How Halalify will inshaAllah
Help You Achieve Excellence in Dunya and Akhira.
As Dr. BJ Fogg founder and director of the Persuasive Tech Lab at Stanford University said, “If something requires us to exert just a little bit more effort the chances we’ll do it go way, way down. There’s a huge difference, for example, between two clicks to get something done and one click.” I’m here to be that one click.
Hereâ€™s the deal:
A goal without a plan is just a wish. Committed Muslims who want to incorporate more of the sunnah in to their daily life are just overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information available online. Some are authentic and some are not.
As Muslims we are commanded to do our research and actively learn from the cradle to the grave. Sometimes we need shortcuts as we have limited time to do this while running our businessâ€¦ while working a full-time jobâ€¦ while raising a family..
Instead of digging through hundreds of blog posts, articles and poorly translated books and being exhausted afterward that you fail to put it into actionâ€¦
â€¦subscribe to Halalify and I’ll do the work for you! You will also be among the first to know when my WELL DESIGNED ready to use Islamic themed planners become available.
And the best part? I cut through the fluff, showing you exactly what ahadith are authentic (with proofs) and how you can start practicing them. All because I have a knack for consuming and breaking down research, books, podcasts, webinars and anything else I can find and turn them into INSANELY PRACTICAL planners that you can start benefiting from TODAY. (In an alternate universe I would most likely be a librarian #DreamJob) Also I only use authentic hadith that have been verified by the ulema. If I can’t verify or source it, it doesn’t make it to any of my planners.
About Maria Islam
I love organizing things and making them look pretty. In school I was the kid who squealed when she got her school planner and would use it until it was raggedy. Alhamdulillah. I would also design my own for specific projects as it helped me stay focus when my very active imagination would inevitably enthrall me and deadlines and homework would fall by the wayside.
When I took shahada in 2006 I naturally created a planner to facilitate my transition. At the time I was a new Muslim trying to build good habits like praying salat on time so I started scheduling them in so I wouldn’t forget. After befriending other converts I noticed a recurring theme of wishing to get organized and on point with ibaadah but unsure on how to get started. I kept tinkering with it and my flagship planner Ramadan Battle Plan emerged and quickly became popular, alhamdulillah. My complimentary digital version is my waqf to the ummah. InshaAllah;)
If you’ve benefited from my works please consider making the following du’a:
Ya Allah swt fill us, our families and progeny with iman, taqwa, sabr, sakeenah, wisdom, understanding and love for You, Your book and Your Messenger. Oh Allah, wash our hearts clean and white and keep them clean and white, without blemish until the day we meet You.â€ť AMEEN.
