Recommended Reading: The Must-Read 5

Every young Muslim should be actively in pursuit of self-education, daily. And non-fiction books are the way to do it.

Here’s a must-read list (in no significant order):

  • The Beginning of Guidance by Imam Ghazali

Every Muslim, young and old should read and own this book. From what to do when you wake up to why one should avoid satiation, this book is a very comprehensive read. Imam Ghazali speaks about gaining guidance through obedience and avoiding disobedience.

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

Are you ready for a paradigm shift? I almost guarantee you will (hit puberty twice) become a doubly mature adult by the end of this book. Very potent stuff on becoming a complete and pro-active individual.

  • The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz

Think your way to success. It’s all in your mind, it really is. If it’s conceivable and believable, it’s achievable. Cure ‘excuse-itis’ once and for all.

  • The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss

Hands down the best book on time management and effective productivity. A no BS book which will liberate your mind from the shackles of society’s definition of material success. Also one of the best books for the budding entrepreneur.

  • The Education of Millionaires by Michael Ellsberg

Awesome book on how you don’t need college or university to become a millionaire, heck even a billionaire. Ellsberg shares essential street-smart and real world life skills in order to financially thrive in the modern day. Sales, marketing, networking, it’s all there, plus loads of interviews with examples of dropouts who made it big. A must read.
