“Barakah is the attachment of Divine goodness to a thing, so if it occurs in something little, it increases it. And if it occurs in something much it benefits. And the greatest fruits of Barakah in all things is to use that barakah in the obedience of Allah (Subahanahu Wa Ta’ala)”
Imagine waking up for Qiamullail and only getting a few hours of sleep but still feeling fresh and energized the whole day, as opposed to sleeping the whole night and missing your fajr prayer, to wake up feeling weak and sleepy all day long. Even simple things like sharing your food with your friends and feeling full when you eat less than you normally do, that is a sign of Barakah. Do read more on the 18 sources of Barakah HERE
Another useful tip to keep you productive throughout the day, POWER NAPS. (hurrayy!!) No, I'm serious. The best power naps are either 20 minutes, 45 minutes or 90 minutes. <--ok definitely have to try and prove this one! :D You can read more on sleep cycles HERE
All in all, the talk was short and sweet. And most importantly beneficial and inspired me to be a more productive human being in the future! It sounds cliche, I know. But please make du'a for me:). Also, there will be more upcoming events that you might want to check out:
