Ramadan 2020/1441: Ramadan Gratitude Journal Day 9

What books are you grateful for?
I love books, they have been both my distraction and my sanctuary. They have opened my eyes to the big wide world and been somewhere for me to go and hide.

I am grateful to the books that have helped me grow:
The Autobiography of Malcom X
Women who Run with Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Finding Your Own North Star by Martha Beck
Zen and the Art of making a Living by Laurence G Bold
I Could do Anything if Only I knew What it Was by Barbara Sher

I am grateful for the books that have kept me entertained and engrossed:
Dracula by Bram Stoker
The Chrysalids by John Wyndham
The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
The Lieutenant by Kate Grenville
and so many more I can't list them all.

I am thankful for the book that made me hold my faith in even greater awe:
The Sealed Nectar by Sheikh Safi-ur-Rahman al-Mubarakpuri
Life of the Prophet in Makkah: The Makkan Crucible by Zakaria Bashier
Fazail e Amaal and Fazail e Sadaqat by Muhammad Zakariyya al-Kandhlawi

But there is only really one answer to this question:
The Holy Quran, a gift to us, a source of guidance and a never ending source of learning, insight, healing and hope alhamdulillah
