Taqdeer's conception came about in 2017 when its creator, Samia Quddus, a qualified Integrative Therapist (MBACP) struggled to find a gratitude journal that had a dual focus on Islamic, psychotherapeutic and scientific principles. This inspired her to create Taqdeer, an Islamic Gratitude Journal.
A comprehensive Bibliography within the journal highlights the diligent research and care that Samia has conducted so that users, the 'Taqdeer Life family', can benefit from an effective 'Alhamdulillah' journaling experience, inShaAllah.
The Islamic faith recognises that expressing appreciation (Shukr) is a simple way to nurture a constant state of worship. Scientific research states that having an 'attitude of gratitude' can lead to a happier you because gratitude forces one to live in the present. Shukr during times of hardship and ease can help one to recognise their blessings and harness the concept of Alhamdulillah.
Taqdeer is a comprehensive faith-inspired Islamic gratitude journal that cultivates an Alhamdulillah (praise be to God) mind-set. The journal combines both Islamic and scientific concepts to encourage its users to make gratitude and the remembrance of God the heart of regular focus; principles which support positive well-being and personal growth via psychological mindedness.
Compared to other Islamic-themed lifestyle journals, Taqdeer veers from a 'Pick & Mix' combination of concepts. Taqdeer is solely about expressing Shukr through spiritual remembrance in a few creative ways. Much thought has gone into creating a modern, simple and desirable product that also serves as a holistic tool. Taqdeer strikes a careful balance by giving you manageable and achievable self-reflective tasks whilst simultaneously cultivating an Alhamdulillah approach.
Taqdeer is More than just a Journal
