Summer Read


Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh and hi everyone.

Speed Read?

Im a slow reader, I have always been. When I read, I would have a pencil with me and my dictionary (the online version most of the time) ready in case I stumbled upon difficult words, which I always do – and these things that I do when I read make reading, sometimes a hard job to accomplish.

But in order to be able to get a lot from books, I need to be able to read a lot of them and still not missed the points. Therefore, I’m now trying to learn the skill of speed reading. Some related articles:


Current Reads.

Books I’m currently reading (gotta speed read them!) :

  • Al-Ghazali on Disciplining the Soul and on Breaking the Two Desires Books XXII and XXIII of the Revival of the Religous Sciences.
  • Agenda to Change Our Condition by Hamza Yusuf & Zaid Shakir.
  • The Magnificent Organ by Jeanette Hablullah.
  • Al-Ghazzali on Patience and Gratitude
  • Return of the Pharaoh : Memoir in Nasir’s Prison by Zainab Al-Ghazali
  • Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy
  • Muhammad by Martin Lings
  • The Story of Philosophy by Will Durant
  • Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins.
  • The 8th Habit from Effectiveness to Greatness by Stephen R. Covey
  • Treatise on Maqasid al-Shariah by Ibn Ashur.


I will try to prepare summaries of books that I have read (I’m not good at making summary but I’ll give it a shot 😀 ). But if you need instant summaries of the books, is always a good option =)
