Gratitude for Muslims Around the World Lists


The word Alhamdulillah means All praise is for Allah (God)/ All thanks to Allah (a way of showing gratitude and praise for the Creator).

#AlhamdulillahForSeries is a series full of positivity which aims to spread gratitude towards Allah, in places we sometimes forget to see.

(the book of it is out now – *A Muslim’s mini Gratitude Journal* – a month of helping you develop an attitude of gratitude in shaa Allaah because an Alhamdulillah a day keeps scarcity away). You can read its reviews HERE.

There are billions of Muslims across the globe and every one of them looks different from the other. Black, brown, white, old, young, with curly hair, with straight hair, with physical disabilities, niqabi, hijabi, unveiled, bearded, clean-shaved, tall, short, freckled, blonde, brunette, ginger-head, Asian, Arab, European, African, American etc. The list can go on and on.

Muslim world is diverse and with this campaign, we hope to bring a positive change in not just individual lives but on a large scale as well, resulting in happy and thankful people who stop to show gratitude in the tiniest of things.

Hence we curated a list of what Muslims around the world are thankful for. With #gratitudeartcontest and #gratitudecaptioncontest held twice so far, there were tons of suggestions coming from all over the world. Some made us laugh, some made us weep, but all ended up in Alhamdulillah 🙂

*Sorry we have none so far from Antarctica :p 

NOTE:

Please note that one caption does not represent all individuals of that nation nor does it represent all ideas of that one individual. For all of us, gratitude has many forms and this just defines one tiny part of it. InshaaAllah, with further expansion of the series and more caption suggestions, shares, likes, comments and art submissions, we will be publishing more ideas from more countries hence more awesomeness <3

All the countries within one continent have been paired randomly as it’s the beauty of Islam that unites us all alhamdulillah.

We welcome ideas from all Muslims around the globe. We will try to design as many posters possible (we’ve already done 100). Send them through this hashtag – #AlhamdulillahForSeries. If you want to contribute your art to this series, then you can email us the high resolution (scanned) art to submissions@ayeina.com 

How would you fill in the blank: Alhamdulillah for __________?

P.S.

In shaa Allah we will be working on second version of this once we have more posters ready. We will also be publishing categorical gratitude lists like “Gratitude for Muslim foodies around the world” (already done at “my halal kitchen”), “Gratitude for Muslim parents around the world” ,”Gratitude for Muslim travellers around the world“etc.

When a thought generates from one and is felt and completed by the other - zayeneesha is that combination of Zainee (Samina Farooq) and Ayesha Farooq.

    Alhamdulillah. What a great idea to inspire muslims all over the world and inject positivity in them. You guys are doing an excellent job MashAllah. May Allah put barakah in your work and help you spread it above your imaginations. AMEEN!

    P.s I loved this font. Just don’t want to stop writing. 🙂 where on earth did you guys get those ideas from?

    • Aameen and jazakillahu khair haseena 🙂
      Alhamdulillah for the creative heart (samina farooq) @ayeina

    • Aameen. Jazakillah khair habibti.
      This font took more time than illustrations themselves haha. Ideas are pooled by everyone in the team 🙂 Alhamdulillah for their support. Ayesha took the duty of written content so taking time out to work on this got easier 🙂

      You pool in some ideas too 😀 we welcome them ideas 😀

    MashaAllah, finally!
    Alhamdulillah for deciding on the less swirly font. 😀
    I’d be looking forward to more of this. Good job Sammy boy.

    Barakallahu feeki.

  3. Aww masha’Allah this is super cute! I love that you are showing the diversity of Muslims! One of my favorite parts about becoming Muslim was when I started meeting sisters from all around the world. It’s truly a life changing experience. We have so much diversity but the one thing we have in common is Alhamdulillah. Thanks for the cute post it made me smile!

  4. Masha’Allah, wishing you continuing success with the Alhamdulillah for series!

    The Alhamdulillah for Halal Beef Burgers made me smile!!

  5. Alhamdulillah indeed… Giving gratitude is for all places.

    I need to move to Antarctica soon so I can provide that caption.

  6. This is my third comment here. I really am not sure if you got the other two or not. Can’t see it anywhere here lol

    This post is beyond cute.

    Ome times. We.really forget that colours in the sky or free WiFi or a small home..these everyday things we take for granted..they are also such immense blessings from.the Almighty.

    Alhamdulilah. Indeed.

  7. This is soooo true, eye opening and really nicely put. We should always be thankful for literally everything, good or bad. (www.beautywithzainy.com and http://www.spicyfusionkitchen.com)

  8. I love all these! Scrolled through to find the UK 🙂 and the illustrations are beautiful – do you guys do them? They are so unique! May Allah increase you in your passion for this project inshaAllah!

    • Jazakillah khair for your kind words Iman. At first, we used to hand paint each and every art piece, but we soon learned how exhausting it gets and how slow the whole series go. So now we outsource as well 🙂
