Beautiful, highly motivating!

It was highly inspirational. Great work done by the author who doubled as the narrator. Wish Audible could collect more of such inspirational books from Muslim authors.

Must read for muslims young and old.

A lot of beneficial knowledge and advice to gain for all muslims looking to get more out of their lives. It seems Mohammed Faris has done a lot of research on the psychological and spiritual side of things regarding enhanced productivity and has put a lot of thought into writing this book.

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.

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.

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.

MUST read if you're a Muslim!

first audiobook of 2019 =) 5 shiny stars for this work.. a TON of excellent reminders and insights to apply into our lives. This is an Islamic version of personal development material and will be well worth your time to listen to/read. I initially got the audiobook version and now my hard copy is on its way to gift it to a friend. Give it a good read, apply the stuff, do great things out there seeking God's pleasure, and inshAllah you'll reap the benefits in the next life.

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.

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.
