Most of us are familiar with our first #inspiringcoveredwomen of November for #CbaKnowVember theme which is Yasmin Mogahed. I still remember in 2012 (I think).. I was one of the few people in the world who went crazy for her book, Reclaim Your Heart. It was sold out all over the world and I had to preorder it to through my friend in the UK that time. Allahu Akhbar, I know.. sanggup bah. But it was worth it. Reclaim your heart is not like an ordinary love story book you normally read. This book is her personal insight about life and discovering ourself.
“This book was written to awaken the heart and provide a new perspective on love, loss, happiness, and pain.
A manual of sorts, Reclaim Your Heart will teach readers how to live in this life without allowing life to own you.
It is a manual of how to protect your most prized possession- the heart.”
Alhamdulillah, after reading her book, it did help me in discovering myself during my zaman teenager when I was still confused on my life purpose. As per CbA’s Instagram post, “Every word feels relevant, relatable and gentle. She reminds us of our own peaks and dips of faith, our own heartbreaks, the beauty of hope and most importantly, she reminds us of Him”. Exactly! I wanna cry now :(
So, thank you Yasmin for your book. It does not only help me during my teenage years, but now too. May Allah bless her work and her writings so she can release more books to inspire us all. Not to forget, her dakwah too.
**Also, recently, she just released her second book few months ago, Love and Happiness. I am still waiting for my copy hehe.
