Productive Muslim in Kuala Lumpur

Sunday, February 26, 2012

I'm sure you guys have come across Productive Muslim. Or at least Productive Ramadan. If you haven't... where have you been?! For almost two years I've enjoyed reading their articles and watching their YouTube  videos.




That's why I was stoked when I found out the founder of Productive Muslim would be in Kuala Lumpur to give a two-day seminar on how to be a productive Muslim (totally saw that coming didn't you?). It took place yesterday and today at the International Islamic University of Malaysia.


I went with my friends and family. It really brings you closer and makes the learning process more fun. The founder of Productive Muslim would say, "There's barakah in learning together!" lol  Although I did feel tired (and a tad cranky) throughout the two days because the air conditioning system broke down! It's hard for me to focus in a room filled with 500 people without air conditioning -_- This is Malaysia we're talking about!


Yup, that's him. Abu Productive. Mohammed Faris.
He currently works as a Risk Management Specialist at an Islamic Development Bank in Saudi Arabia.
He founded Productive Muslim when he was studying in UK, mashaAllah.


Alhamdulillah, I learned a lot. I will definitely write about it but I kind of don't know where to start.
We covered so many things in two days. InshaAllah, He'll give me inspiration.


One of the things I enjoyed learning about is the 18 sources of Barakah.



To get an idea of what he's like as a speaker, watch this.
Or you can read Maria's post about the seminar and other awesome things that happened during her week.

Laila, pray that he visits Spain in the near future, inshaAllah =) I'm sure there are many Muslims there who would love to benefit from his talks.

That looks like it was amazing! I really miss getting to go to lectures like these which are so common in the US! I live in Dubai and it is so sad that we do not have seminars such as these.
