The Big Announcement:
We know we're completely biased but we can't wait for you to all join us with our 30 Days of Goodness Ramadan Challenge. Click here to find out more, join in and spread the word! #Jeem30Days
What we're reading:
We're getting into the Ramadan flow with a new(ish) translation and commentary of the Qur'an The Study Quran* that too many people have recommended for us to ignore. We absolutely love it so far! The balance and breadth of commentary combined with clarity of language is breathtaking.

What we're watching:
We're keen to keep in shape this Ramadan and it can be a real challenge fitting exercise into a long fasting day. Joanna Soh's video entitled 'How to Workout during Ramadan' is a great place to start. We've also been motivated by Zainab Ismail's recent series of Ramadan preparation posts. Abdiya Iman and Aayah Khalaf have collaborated over at Modest Fitness Week to offer a special women's only Ramadan workout and coaching community. Yusef from Propane Fitness summarises the basics most succinctly and comically though.

What we're listening to:
Qari Omar Hisham al-Arabi's '40 Rabbana' collection of Qur'anic duas is seriously soothing.

Jeem Juxtapositions:
It was awesome to discover we'd been featured in Ellie Quinn's lovely blog entitled '8 Ways To Prepare For Ramadan! Preparation for Mind, Body & Heart!' It's packed full of super tips on getting Ramadan ready!

We were delighted to be featured in the ever-popular glossy British Muslim Magazine's '5 Ways To Get Yourself Ready for Ramadan'.

Thank you all for continuing to frequent our Jeem Essentials* reading list. The list is a curated selection of reads that have featured in this newsletter, been mentioned in one of our Instagram Stories or have simply tickled our fancy. One thing's for sure: they resonate with our desire to inspire peace, purpose and productivity.

Quote we're pondering over:
When you pray realize: a delay is not a denial @practicalmuslim

All best wishes and duas,

Tauseef & Sarah
