As we begin this blessed month of Ramadan, the challenge can be sustaining the motivation and energy throughout the month. If you live in the west and your fasts are 18 hours long, it is even harder.

MashAllah, Abu Productive and his team at ProductiveMuslim and ProductiveRamadan created these excellent ramadan videos last year that are still relevant today.

Watch them to “power up” your Ramadan spirit. If you are interested in more ways of motivation and productivity this Ramadan, you can check out ProductiveRamadan.

Have you ever wanted to establish your Islamic Identity and still look cool and modern? Islamic T-shirts are one way. I never had any Muslim t-shirts until I went to my first big Islamic conference.

I attended the ISNA conference in Chicago years ago and went to the bazaar section. MashAllah, I was in Islamic shopping paradise :-) I went on a spending spree and bought many muslim t-shirts among other things. I also like wearing traditional Islamic clothing but it was nice to have some cool Islamic tees when attending active Islamic events like sports tournaments and such.

I scoured the internet and found cool islamic t-shirts that you should check out…

Note: This is a guest post from my wife :-)
After my husband wrote the “10 Habits of Highly Effective Muslim Husbands,” he thought it would be interesting to add the other perspective. 

So, I made a list of 10 habits that my husband has commented on over time that has produced positive changes in our relationship.  He is right, the first year of marriage is really about adapting and compromise.  We are shown our terrible habits (how did our parents put up with us?) and overtime you do fall into a groove. 

But, don’t get too comfortable in your routine.  Adding some spice and maintaining some good habits will make a very successful and enjoyable marriage.  Some of these habits are similar to the “Muslim Husband Habits” but, some are just for us, girls.

When I first got onto the internet in the 90′s, the world wide web was very different than what it is today.

There were good Islamic websites online.  Two that I frequented a lot and still exist today are IslamOnline and Islamicity.

Journey To Mecca - In The Footsteps of Ibn Battuta Trailer

The goal of a video trailer is to entice us into watching the documentary or movie it is promoting. It could also advertise a program or conference we plan on attending.

I always enjoy watching these previews of documentaries or movies that are Islam related.  Its exciting to see the different perspectives in our Muslim community and to also marvel at our glorious history.

I’ve found 5 different Muslim video trailers that I think you should watch.  They all vary in content and style. Check them out and let me know what you think in the comments.

Web Forums have existed since very early on the Internet.  Nowadays, they aren’t talked about as much as social media websites like Facebook and Myspace.

However, the communities around these forums aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.  Because of this, they will continue to be used by many and are still growing everyday.
