Hi <<First Name>>

Welcome to this week's 5-Minute Friday where we share highlights from our week - a curated selection from things we've read, watched, pondered over, eaten, loved or picked up that inspire peace, purpose and productivity.

We treasure your experiences with the Jeem Journal. Leave a smile on our faces by leaving a review here. Share your photos of the Jeem Journal featuring in your life with us via email or directly on Instagram and inspire Jeemers across the globe.
What we're reading:
We enjoyed this highly readable short post over at TED entitled 'The 7 types of rest that every person needs'. It's part of their "How to Be a Better Human" series and highlights the fact that sleep and rest are not the same thing, although many of us incorrectly confuse the two. The concepts of emotional rest and social rest really resonated with us.

What we're watching:
The extraordinary Sukina Pilgrim's new poem is simply exquisite and required listening if you need a pick me up and a gentle nudge towards recognising the light of life amidst the darkness that surrounds us. 

What we're listening to:
Shaykh Hamza Yusuf's thoughtful, wisdom-infused series of bite-sized podcasts 'Sacred Text Messages' are both wonderful reminders and providers of fresh perspectives. Episode 7 'Don't Be Triggered' captures the magic of harnessing the Qur'an as an antidote to negativity.

What we're loving:
The embroidered sweatshirts over at Quote Lovin' caught our eye this week. Their presale is live now! The site features a treasury of beautiful Islamic themed gifts and digital printables.

Tharik Hussain, travel writer for Lonely Planet and Bradt Guides, has whet our appetite for post-lockdown travelling with news of the forthcoming release of his Best of Thailand (Bookshop | Amazon)* featuring research on Muslim Thai communities, culture and heritage.

Jeem Juxtapositions:
Get Ramadan Ready with Jeem⁣ - With Ramadan around the corner, we're taking some time out this week to gather our thoughts, prepare a plan and set some achievable goals iA. Over the last few years we've found that time and effort invested now to strategise pays huge dividends during the holy month itself.⁣

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:
Detachment is not that you should own nothing, but that nothing should own you Ali ibn Abu Talib

All best wishes and duas,

Tauseef & Sarah
