June - A Month of GratitudeJun 01, 2022
Welcome to June! This is the beautiful, abundant month of gratitude in Cherished Muslimah.
How often do we get stuck in victim mode, not noticing how blessed we are? By spending a whole month focusing on things to be grateful for, we not only raise our spirits but also attract more blessings into our lives. If you feel like you have a lack of love, gifts and happiness in your life, then come and join us as we use this month to reconnect and find all of the love and blessings that are abundant all around us.
This month we will be exploring love languages and how we can use them to receive love in our lives. We will also be looking at the barriers we have to receiving love – what stops us exactly?
Tragedy in the World
Sadly, we have seen tragic events unfold in the world – it is so sad and heart-breaking. From an innocent journalist being killed and humiliated even after death in Palestine, to a mass shooting in Buffalo New York where black people were the main target – I feel so helpless.
All of these incidents affect us at a micro level whether we are aware of it or not. I have been using this time to grieve, reflect and allow it to propel me further into speaking up for love and justice and to help others do the same. Injustice is not okay. Abuse is not okay, and we need to end it in our homes so we can positively affect the towns, cities and countries we are living in.
Inspiring the future torchbearers
Last month, I was fortunate to visit Lady Nafisa School and deliver the first part of a Healthy Relationships workshop to the year 9 and 10 girls. It felt wonderful to be helping the future female leaders of the world learn how to nurture their relationships with others and themselves.
Here is some feedback from women who have heard that I delivered a workshop to young ladies:
So important to reach our young females at this age. Crucial to empower and educate.
This is so great. I’ve always thought healthy relationships need to be on the school curriculum!
Saw what you are doing at Lady Nafisa School, so wonderful and really needed.
This Month - Be Grateful and Get More
‘If you express gratitude, I shall certainly give you more,
and if you are ungrateful, then My punishment is severe.’
Allah tells us to be grateful to him, and by us doing so, he will increase our blessings – and the same plays out in our relationships with others – the more we are grateful, the more we get back (with the exception of toxic people – and that’s where boundaries are needed).
But we often don’t know what to be grateful for…! Sometimes we expect things from others and don’t feel the need to express our thanks. But that’s not the way we see things at Cherished Muslimah. We say thank you to our hands and feet, thank our loved ones for cracking jokes and for being optimistic… why not if we are guaranteed more of the good stuff?
Here are some ideas for this month:
- Come and join us in the Cherished Muslimah Sisterhood on Facebook and share what you are grateful for this month, in fact, join us in our 30-day Gratitude challenge!

- Come and join Cherished Seasons – my membership programme that focuses on cultivating one habit each month from my The Four Traits of a Cherished Muslimah. Or if you want to start a deep-dive this summer into transforming yourself From Average to Phenomenal, then my 12-week one-to-one coaching programme may be just for you! Book a free discovery call with me and let’s talk. I only have a very few spaces for one-to-one sessions left until the new year (as we are in my daughter's last few months of home-schooling before starting secondary school), so if you are interested, get in touch!
Come and spend this beautiful summery month cultivating an attitude of gratitude, and watch the miracles unfold!
If you would like to embody the four traits in your life and move from being average to phenomenal, then book a FREE Discovery Call with me today so that you can create a fulfilled life that is abundant in love and respect!
