A 6-week online course open to brothers and sisters to help them regain the spiritual energy and focus to sail through life with contented hearts, no matter how hard it gets.
SOMETIMES, NAVIGATING BETWEEN LIFE'S CALM WATERS AND THOSE INEVITABLE STORMY SEAS FEELS LIKE AN ENDLESS STRUGGLE
YOU WONDER, WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO RISE ABOVE THE TIDES.
Does this sound like you?
- You often feel lost and empty, asking yourself: who am I, where am I going and what should I do to get there? This difficulty to reflect inwards often leaves you feeling stuck and confused.
- You’re living the same cycle of life, just going through the motions but your heart is searching for deeper connections and a higher purpose that goes beyond your day to day existence.
- Negative past experiences and disappointments weigh you down and you struggle to see the beauty in life, resulting in a loss of focus, gratitude and motivation.
- You’re trying to navigate the rat race, constantly competing with and proving your worth to those around you. You end the day worried about the future and dissatisfied with whatever you achieve.
- Your relationships feel strained. You’ve become reactive to other people’s words and behaviour, you feel misunderstood and say and do things you later regret.
- The battle to acquire, achieve and control outcomes causes stress and anxiety, making it difficult for you to be mindful and present to appreciate life to its fullest.
- You struggle with living a balanced life. This could lead you to feel spiritually disconnected from Allah ﷻ in your prayers and duaas and spiritual practices have become nothing more than robotic actions.
NOW IS THE TIME TO RISE ABOVE THE TIDES WITH THE COURAGE AND FOCUS YOU NEED TO REACH WHAT YOUR SOUL IS SEARCHING FOR.
A 6-week online course to help you regain the spiritual energy and focus to sail through life with contented hearts, no matter how hard it gets.

Be in this world as though you were a stranger or a traveller.

In the evening do not expect [to live until] the morning, and in the morning do not expect [to live until] the evening. Take [advantage of] your health before times of sickness, and [take advantage of] your life before your death.
[Reported by Bukhari]

WHERE IS YOUR
And the worldly life is not but amusement and diversion, but the home of Hereafter is best for those who fear Allah. Will you not then reason?
Surat Al-An’am: 6:32
When we shift our outlook on life and understand that this world is not our real home but a temporary lodge as we pass by, we can overcome many modern-day challenges and improve the quality of our day-to-day lives.
That doesn’t mean we detach ourselves entirely from the world, feeling no ambition and joy. Instead, we continue to aim high and enjoy the comforts Allah ﷻ has bestowed upon us — but not in a way that impedes our potential in the next life.
Hold the good of this world in your hands
and the love of the hereafter in your hearts.
HOW THIS COURSE WAS CONCEIVED
A MESSAGE FROM
Life was going about as usual for my husband, three children and I but in March 2022, everything changed in an instant.
We had made many life plans but Allah, Al Hakim (The All Wise) had chosen a different path for us. Although my husband was generally fit and healthy with no known serious health conditions, in the early hours on a Sunday morning, he suffered a sudden cardiac arrest and his soul returned to Allah without any warning and within just a few minutes. May Allah ﷻ have mercy on his beautiful soul.
Experiencing such an unexpected seismic loss unveiled many truths about this world.
It’s been almost a year since, but the impact of our loss is still deep and raw that often it feels like it happened just yesterday. But we fully accept the decree of Allah ﷻ and continuously pray for sabrun jameel (beautiful patience).
During the months that followed, I took time out to reflect deeply over past events. I found myself gravitating towards understanding and holding tight to the prescribed attitude for life as demonstrated in our prophetic tradition. It allowed me to rise above the daily struggles and appreciate why The Travellers mindset is such a fundamental code for life.
Too often, we only stop to think about these realities when a calamity hits and do not make it a part of our everyday thinking. As human beings, it’s in our nature to become distracted, disillusioned and forgetful but with this prescription for life in mind, we will stay present to the fragility of life, the reality of the next world, and therefore be more mindful of who we are on this short journey and what we choose to focus on each day. This doesn’t mean we adopt a monk-like existence, but we can embrace life with a mindset that helps us to remain patient and grateful during times of calm waters and life’s stormy seas.
THE TRAVELLERS MINDSET™
Adopting the Travellers’ Mindset™ helps us work towards remaining healthily unattached to this world, not chasing materialistic things or needing to control outcomes. There’s a full appreciation to completely surrender to the will of Allah ﷻ in every matter, putting in the effort but not attaching to set results, fully trusting that Allah’s decree is always what’s best.
With this mindset, there’s a strong resilience of mind and body, and peace in the heart, knowing this world is not our home. Nothing is permanent; not stress, pain, suffering or worries.
The focus is on what kind of traveller I am, how I treat others along the way and what I am building for my eternal home in the next life. This perspective makes it easier to let go of ego-based concerns, rise above struggles and lead with values such as mercy, compassion, love and gratitude — knowing these are traits beloved to Allah ﷻ.
Our Meeting with Allah ﷻ is the Only Thing Guaranteed
And every new day is a means to prepare for it. Through the analogy of the Traveller, the Prophet ﷺ encourages us to be at our very best in every moment so when our time is up, we’re most prepared to meet Him ﷻ.
I’ve made it my life’s mission to prepare myself for this special meeting with Allah ﷻ and it’s my intention to share that journey with you too.
The Awakened Hearts Academy is an effort to bring us more present to the reality of this world in order to drive our purpose, focus and actions towards securing our ultimate destination.
I started this Academy to help people increase in self-awareness and spiritually-centred confidence so they can align their character and daily actions with their values and rise above worldly struggles with a focus on the afterlife.
Awakened Hearts Academy is built upon the 3 C’s:
Navigating life with an akhirah focus
Taking action with confidence rooted in self-belief and Allah ﷻ
Refining manners and character based on prophetic examples ﷺ.
