EP 35: Developing a Quranic Lifestyle (Part 1) – feat. Wisam Sharieff
Part 1 – Quranic Transformations and Goal Setting
You may have heard people using the terms ‘living a Quranic or Islamic lifestyle’, but what does that really mean?
When our mother A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) described the Prophet’s (pbuh) character as being the embodiment of the Quran [Sahih Muslim], what comes to mind? Do you envision a man who was only concerned with rulings of halal and haram, do’s and don’ts, or someone whose entire being emanated the light of the Quran and beautified every living being that passed his way?
Why is it that although some people have memorised the entire Quran, their character, actions and lifestyle all contradict its teachings? Why do we still feel uneasy around them? What’s the missing piece here?
In Part 1 of this two-part podcast, we’re joined by Ustadh Wisam Sharieff who shares with us an incredible system for Quranic Transformation.
By combining self-development techniques (mind, body and soul) with supplications from the Quran, as well as a strategic goal setting framework, Ustadh Wisam gives you the tools that will empower you to develop a complete ‘Quranic Lifestyle’ that is unique to you.
This means that not only will you be able to memorise, recite and reflect upon the Book of Allah, but every part of your life
During this episode we cover the foundations of Quranic Transformation, and in Part 2 we dive deeper into the components of self-development in relation to living an Islamic lifestyle.
