The following manifesto was written in the city of Barakah, Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah (The illuminated City), the city of Prophet Muhammad ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) in November 2019: 


Start every action with sincere intention and ask Allah for help.

Life is not about you, it’s about serving your Lord with excellence.

Praise Allah for what you have and seek what He has beautifully.

Be like a gardener: focused, hardworking, gentle, and trusting God with the results. 

Seek your parents’ blessings, even at a personal sacrifice. 

Plant a seed whose harvest will benefit generations to come.

Pray and persist for your goals until you achieve them or are guided to what’s better.  

Remember death often to stay focused on what matters. 

Send abundant blessings upon Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.

Backstory: Blessings upon Blessings

When I visited the blessed city of Prophet Muhammad ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) in November 2019, I set the intention of writing a manifesto for the Barakah Culture that we’re spreading globally as part of our new company direction. What better place can someone write a ‘Barakah’ Culture Manifesto than in the city of our Beloved Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) who supplicated for this city saying:

“O Allah, shower blessings upon us in our city, and in our fruits, in our mudd and in our sa’s, blessings upon blessings” [Sahih Muslim]

And He ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said as Anas b. Malik raḍyAllāhu 'anhu (may Allāh be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said:

“O Allah, increase in Medina twice the blessings (You showered) on Mecca.” [Sahih Al Bukhari]

Thankfully -and all praise is due to the Decree of Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) -, I realized after arriving in Madinah that I forgot my writing journal and I only had a few scraps of hotel notepads to write down the manifesto!

Due to the limited resources, Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) inspired me to follow the Prophetic example of saying only a few words but capturing many meanings. So I sat from ‘Asr until Maghrib prayer in the Prophetic mosque writing, scratching, and re-writing until I came to the first draft of the manifesto with the Help of Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He).

After a few iterations with the help of my team and advisors, we were able to refine these words to precisely 100 words – alhamduliAllah.

We ask Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) to accept it from us and to put Barakah in these few words so that they spread globally and guide all those who read them towards living a life of Barakah and embracing the Barakah Culture.
