What we're reading:
Christopher Littlefield's piece 'Use Gratitude to Counter Stress and Uncertainty' for the Harvard Business Review popped up on our radar. Right now, we’re living in a constant state of uncertainty, and it can feel like running a race with no finish line or making a puzzle without a reference picture. Research shows that gratitude may just help balance out our mental state.

What we're watching:
One of our favourite poets and thinkers Ameera Aslam shared some gems during a 10-minute piece for Sout Ilaahi's virtual Eid Gathering. (Skip to the 1-minute mark for Ameera). She speaks about the importance of laughter, practicing gratitude & finding the transcendent/spiritual perspective for ongoing sadness.

What we're listening to:
Suleika Jaouad, bestselling author, columnist and creator of The Isolation Journals spoke movingly with Tim Ferriss on Invaluable Road Trips, the Importance of a To-Feel List, and Journaling.

What we're loving:
Nawal El Masri, entrepreneur and founder of, collaborated with one of our favourite creatives Qasim Arif to bring to life a prayer mat / abaya combination where storytelling and art meet.

Our favourite food blogger Halal Girl About Town has launched a fabulous initiative: Dear Palestine, The Cookbook. A curated recipe book with 30 fantastic recipes to help raise emergency funds for Medical Aid for Palestinians. They've raised £10k so far, alhamdulillah!
