30 Days of Goodness Ramadan Challenge:
The challenge is live and we've been overwhelmed by your engagement and encouragement. The recent Upgrade Your Prayer challenge seemed to resonate with so many! Click on the image below to find out more. #Jeem30Days
What we're reading:
Islamic Relief's Recipes as part of their Meat-Free Fortnight Challenge look delicious! We haven't quite made the pledge to go meat-free yet but will be incorporating some of these into our iftars at least.

What we're watching:
We caught up with Dr Kiran Rahim's excellent and engaging conversation with nutritionist Dr Kawther Hashem on sensible and healthy eating during Ramadan.

What we're listening to:
We really enjoyed this discussion on the Commercialisation of Ramadan hosted by The Muslim in the Room podcast. They ask some intriguing questions: How many decorations are too many? At one point do we have to ask ourselves, is Ramadan becoming too materialistic and losing its spiritual nature? 

What we're loving:
Safar London exude style in all that they do but their homeware and Eid/Ramadan greetings cards in particular are just fabulous! The team at Quirky Muslims are making us laugh out loud with their hilarious and yes, quirky, take on traditions.

Date for the Diary - 5th May 6pm (GMT) - the opportunity to join a Cookaway Live with Pakistani super-chef Sumayya Usmani. She'll be cooking Chicken Handi with saffron nutty pilau. The cost of entry is the price of the recipe box - tick the halal box at checkout. 

Jeem Juxtapositions:
Have you entered our International Giveaway yet? It's in partnership with The Muslim Vibe and there are 3 Jeem Journals up for grabs. The competition ends tomorrow so get liking and tagging!

This IG Reel from a Jeemer featuring the journal gave us Ramadan goosebumps.

If you feel like brushing up on your French then check out this lovely post by one of our Jeemers based across the Channel.

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:
Any important work that does not begin with Bismillah is devoid of Barakah - Prophet Muhammad

All best wishes and duas,

Tauseef & Sarah
