Four Essential Pillars for Exponential Growth

Our aim is to grow beyond imagination and achieve unparalleled growth within a year inshaAllah. 

 Allah (swt) says in Surah Ar-Ra’d verse 11:

 إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ

Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. 

Indeed, Allah will not change the condition or the circumstances of a people until they change what’s going on within themselves, or they change what they have control over.

My number one goal is to help you create the most profound change in your life.

The second one is, that I have an urge to serve my purpose, by creating a footprint in the world, a legacy, something that will impact the world in such a way that after I’ve return to Allah (swt), the work that I done in this period, I will reap the rewards and the benefits of that for an eternity inshaAllah.

In this verse, Allah teaches us to trust Him; Azzawajal, and I trust him implicitly. 

The third thing is creating material success.

Material success means being able to have great relationships and being able to find a solution to any relationship problem that you have.

Every year in the Muslim Life Coach Institute, I take a cohort of coaches through our Coach Certification programme. 

That certification class is a class full of professionals, people who are super ambitious, hardworking, that really want to create something of a legacy that they can leave behind.

We’re not going to wait until the Akhirah, I want to have a great life in the Dunya first, then have the most amazing Akhirah inshaAllah. 

Over the next 12 months, I’m dedicated to up levelling my own life, to creating the next level for all my people.

I founded the Muslim Life Coach Institute because I saw that we have the general education, we’ve got the Islamic education, but how to bridge that gap and create the results in our lives, this is where there’s a massive gap. 

Let’s be honest.

Even though some of us are willing to tell ourselves that we’re willing to wait for that success and for the Hereafter. 

The truth is we all want it now. We all desire success in this Dunya as well as the Akhirah. And there’s nothing wrong with that because this is actually what Allah teaches us in the Quran, to ask for the best in the Dunya and Akhirah. 

So my journey is to help you to create that. 

In this journey, we’re going to go about and create the most designed and intentional life. Nothing is going to be left to just happen haphazardly.  

Here’s what I plan to do over the next 12 months. We’re going to do it using the Science of the Nafs.

The number one thing I do is that I train coaches.

We don’t do traditional life coaching, but we do everything based on the Science of the Nafs.

That is a combination of your connection to Allah (swt),  creating a fortress of Emaan, that helps you to create anything you want in your life, nothing is impossible!

We also focus on psychology. It’s about actually taking total charge of your mind and your emotions.

The third thing is creating material success which means being able to have great relationships and being able to find a solution to any relationship problem that you have.

You want to create success in your life. It’s about living the best life now, not waiting until you get to the Akhirah to live your best life. 

This is a personal journey that requires you to reclaim your mental, emotional, spiritual, and material ownership. When you experience positive changes in your own life, you’ll be inspired to help others do the same.

I know with unwavering certainty that Allah (swt) will make it happen. All I have to do is what’s within my control, and what’s within my control is perpetual growth year on year. 

For those of you who are interested in the certification, there are three areas we focus on.

3 Focus Area in Coach Certification

  1. Living Your Best Life: we’re going to learn to actually live our best lives, get over the past, get over any trauma, get over any challenges, get over relationship issues, take total mental, emotional, spiritual, relationship, material, ownership of our lives.
  2. Transformation & Empowerment: The second focus area involves not just transforming your own life, but also empowering others to transform theirs. 
  3. Building a Lasting Legacy: The third stage is how you go out and build a legacy, how you go out into the world, find clients that you can help and begin to create your impact in the world. 

As you embark on this transformative journey, it’s important to follow a blueprint that guides you toward living your best life.

Here’s we do it:

  1. Plan Your Path
  2. Mental and Spiritual Mastery
  3. Leading with Emotional Intelligence
  4. Shaping behaviours by design

5. Achieving time and money freedom

Throughout this journey, it’s crucial to have a strong “why.” Your “why factor” drives your motivation, your actions and sustains you through challenges. 

As you integrate these principles into your life, you’ll not only uplevel yourself but also uplift those around you, it’s the natural path this science follows. 

Your personal transformation has a ripple out effect, creating a positive impact that has the potential to touch the lives of millions. 

So, embrace the journey, master your mind, and become a beacon of positive change in the world and build a legacy for generations to come.
