Book Review: Think Like a Monk - Train your mind for peace and purpose every day

A great book written by Jay Shetty, reminding us of our purpose in life and  train our mind to think in peace. I really enjoyed the book as well, and I found myself,  my childhood memories, parents and some of my teachers in this book. The book has 316 pages, divided in three parts: Let go, Grow and Give. It took me 7 days to read it, i am not a long hours reader, I just read like 30-60 mins everyday. Some of the main principles that make me to reflect, was the breathing exercising, and to understand that the breathing is the main important factors that affects and control our emotions. The morning walk while having a focus look at stones, flowers, or birds. It reminds me of my walks in the Romanian forest,  where we admired the leaves, memorize each leaf to know to which tree it belongs, or admiring  the tree barks, trunks or flowers. It makes me to remember a game that our class teacher did for us where everyone took a blank paper, and write on it, where they see themselves when they

A collection of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) sayings

This book is meant to share the collection of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) sayings found while I am studying with the International Open University. Born as a Christian, partly living in a communist regime country before the 90`s, the limit of knowledge and exposure to international knowledge by the regime hid most of the information on other religions references and the Prophet (Peace be upon him) himself.

However, now that knowledge is available everywhere, online and books, I am honored that during my studies I have enriched my Islamic knowledge and I found so many sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). Once you know little about Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), you want to explore more and more, and try to strive to follow the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in our life as our role models.  It is the same feeling I felt, when I visited the Prophet Muhammad’s (Peace be upon him) city of Madinah, where you fell in love with it. Same goes when you let yourself to discover and read more about Him you will fell in love with the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

This collection of the sayings is made as part of the community work and dedicated specially to younger generations and those who are interested to discover more about the Prophet sayings, whatever your religion may be. The sayings are compiled in many other religious books such as Fiqh or Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad books, but I doubt many will read the religious books, as they are afraid not to be able to understand it.   I hope that everyone who read this collection of sayings will grow a step in their knowledge in spirituality and religion. I hope this daily dose of wisdom sayings will boost the spirituality and the curiosity for the younger generation. We will not be successful in this life and after, if we do not study and act according to religion as Imam Malik say:  The latter part of this nation will not able to reform itself successfully except by using what reformed its early part”

The arrangement of the sayings is in a random order.

 The sayings found in this collection are not explained, as I don’t have full knowledge to it, and I hope that those interested to deepen their knowledge may do so with various books and reading materials available. I have left a section meant for note jotting for readers to further enlighten themselves towards understanding that particular saying.

Hopefully, everyone will benefit from the Prophet (Peace be upon him) sayings and try to follow our Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), as much as they can in this life.  I feel honored to collect all the sayings and May Allah forgive me for any shortcomings and mistakes made in this task. May Allah accept my work and guide more people to the right part to Islam and put the love for the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in us. I pray that Allah keep me safe of any innovation and misrepresenting in this collection of the sayings.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to say, when beginning a khutbah (sermon): " The best of speech is the Book of Allah and the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad. The worst of things are those which are newly-invented, and every innovation is a going astray" (reported by Muslim, no. 867)
