Welcome to Daily Contemplations, a guided journal designed to inspire mindfulness and self-awareness with the encouragement of Islamic wisdom.

Featuring quotes from notable Muslim poets, mystics, scholars, leaders, the prophet Muhammad and his companions, and the Quran, these pages touch on universal themes of gratitude, humility, patience, knowledge, nature, and more. Daily prompts encourage you to contemplate these topics and explore the roles they play in your life.

Inviting and accessible, this journal is a powerful tool for self-discovery and development. It is divided into twelve unlabeled months of thirty-one days each, allowing you to pick it up at any time of the year and use the calendar of your choice (Gregorian or liturgical). Each month features a new quote at the beginning of every ten-day period, followed by ten open-ended questions to help guide your thoughts and challenge you to pause, reflect, and express yourself freely. The tenth prompt in every section is a reminder to take stock of where you are, which is an important part of the Islamic tradition.

BROADLY APPEALING APPROACH TO ISLAMIC WISDOM: The teachings of Islam, like most other religions and philosophies, encourage people to be mindful and aware of their lives through self-reflection. This journal shares wisdom from the Islamic tradition that can guide us toward greater self-awareness and discovery, regardless of our personal faith.

KNOWLEDGEABLE  AUTHORS: Dr. Tarek Elgawhary is a scholar of Islam and comparative religions, the founder of the Coexist Foundation (famous for the ubiquitous bumper stickers), and the creator of the Making Sense of Islam platform, where he discusses issues related to Islam and mindfulness. Hena Khan is an award-winning author of books for children, many of which center on Muslim characters and share Islamic culture and traditions.

BEAUTIFUL GIFTABLE KEEPSAKE: A handsome design and thoughtful quotes make this journal with prompts an appealing gift at any time of year. Whether given to friends and family during Ramadan, Eid, or any other day of the year, Daily Contemplations is a wonderful way to share love and spiritual encouragement.
