Gratitude Caption Contest 2017 Featured

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-


Alhamdulillah is a phrase Muslims use to show praise and gratitude for their Creator – Creator of everything and everyone. This contest is from #AlhamdulillahForSeries which is a series inspired by the following verse of the Qur’an, where Allah says:

”If you are grateful, I will surely increase you…” [14:7]

The idea behind this series is to instill the attitude of gratitude – to promote joy and positivity.

This year, we ran a #MuslimsCollab campaign to not only manage sponsorships effectively but also to encourage different Muslim businesses to collaborate with each other and rise by lifting each other up. We love connecting the brands/bloggers together.

 

Happiness is contagious so spread it far with your ideas because we are holding a FREE to enter Gratitude Caption Contest (in partnership with amazing Collaborators alhamdulillah) – something we do each year before Eidain since the launch of the series and the gratitude journal based on it. (You can read all about the journal here: http://ayeina.com/muslims-mini-gratitude-journal/ )

So how do you sprinkle some positive vibes around? By entering the following contest 😀


Simple Steps to Enter:


1: Fill in the blank:
“Alhamdulillah for _________________”?   

Comment what are you grateful for on Instagram videos. Highlight a unique side of gratitude – something that few people think of when they talk about being grateful – or something that few people associate with Allah (thanking Him) when they are happy or feel blessed. Instead of saying “Alhamdulillah for everything” – think of something specific (look at THIS FACEBOOK ALBUM from the previous contest for the ideas).


2: Hashtag it:
#AlhamdulillahForSeries

(so it’s easier to track which comment is generic and which one is an entry for the contest)

 
3: Tag at least one friend to spread positive vibes ❤
Even if you don’t win, you’ll still be spreading positivity by sharing what gratitude means to you 💜  Joy is toxic and one line from you can make someone feel blessed in their life as well in shaa Allah 🙂 You can follow Ayeina and the collaborators to stay updated with the contest and prize shipping etc. (optional – this won’t affect your chances of winning).
