The moment I pick the book from the bookstore shelves and I open directly to page 27. “Truly” is a beautiful piece. I can’t seem to put it down until I finished the book. Alhamdulillah.

If you need to find something to read especially for the new year, this is a great start. The book that helps you to reflect and remind you again and again how beautiful our life is when we have Allah in our life.

The principal of let go and let god echoes throughout the book, and in some chapters it makes me cry.

What a beautiful book. Reflections shared by the author pierce through the heart and the soul. Warm and delicious longing birth and beckon our lost, lonely, gentle soul towards God. I don’t usually read this type of book, I always think that I don’t need them. But I’m glad I pick this up; albeit by accident. Sometimes we don’t know what we need. Allah knows best.
Love this so much. Definitely one of my favorites. The words are just so soothing to the heart, inviting contemplation and reflection to this wandering soul. I can see myself grabbing this one time and time again, just to lift my spirit and to remind myself what it feels like to be near to the One and Only.

A light book to read to unwind during travelling. I liked the presentation - the photos carefully selected by the author adding personal touch and gave her narration more alive. The author tried her best to share her thoughts and knowledge on self-discovery and Godliness thag she obtained from people surrounding her.

"Be patient in waiting for time to pass and His Decree to unfold. Be patient in waiting for the uncontrollable variables to each fall into place. Be patient with the self and its tendency to think the worse of each situation. Because His plans are way better than ours. Because this life is all just a test of our faith, our trust, and our reliance on the One who manages all of our affairs."– Nearness To You (page 197)

This book has been a great accompany since my first day of Ramadan. Reading the

First time reading her masterpiece, I immediately falls in love with her book. Parts of this book is so relatable to my own hijrah journey.

The book is published by Iman Publications (my favourite publisher 😆). Its a hardcover book with 238 pages. Bought it from Iman Shoppee at RM 40.50 after discount (the original price is RM 45.00).

🌹Each chapter is written in short essays and are based on the writer experiences.
🌹I love the way the writer educates reader about deen through simple language usage

At first I was a bit sceptical about this book; I mean if this book is another book with the content same as The Art of Letting God/Call Upon Him/You Are Loved then I think I already got the message from those three books, plus generally the book is about the author’s reflection on her journey to seek God, but nevermind maybe I’ll give it a shot lah since it’s quite hype on social medias too.

Baca punya baca rasa nak snap every page uolls, seriously. You know how different MasyaAllah people’s (s

🌷I heaved a sigh of relief as i was moving from 1 chapter to another because somehow i felt the burden had been lifted off my shoulder

🌷I wept a couple of time for so many reasons as i read between the lines...

🌷Sometimes my heart pounded with excitement as i felt the breeze of encouragement infiltrated Inside me

🌷There was 1 time i’d to deal with the bitter truth . Though it felt unsettling in the beginning but i choose to be wise by admitting & pray for a better change

It such a solace to have a book like this. Every time i pick up this book, there must be new things to reflect on myself and to realise the fact that it is it.

Having to realise the fact that we are muslim, the need to rely on Him alone. Whatever the situation it is, Allah must be the first that we keep in our heart and our soul. This eventually keeps me going with a firm step. With Fear of him and Hope in him.

The journey of sis fadhilah to Tareem also makes me dream about someday, i wanted to g

Letting Allah deciding everything for you and always remember Him in whatever you're doing.

A beautiful inside out book filled with soothing words and pretty pictures. Written in a simple language, it feels like the author is talking and sharing beside me about her amazing journey in finding the One. She also always ended the chapter with various dua and hoping the for best in this dunya and hereafter.

The author always asks questions that can be related to our lives and situation. We, the readers

I finished reading this book on a wonderful day, 8 March 2020.

This book is a beautiful book. I started loving this book by its cover.

Then, when i read the whole book. I can say that SubhanAllah what a beautiful and amazing life that Allah give to me.

Thanks to sis Fadhilah because this book helps me a lot in reflecting and “muhasabah” a lot of things in my life.

May my relationship with Allah become closer than before 💕

I would say Nur Fadhilah Wahid always soothe my uncomfort feeling I have been dealing with life most of the time. The books teach me even a small things in life could be a life changing for me to look for. I thank the writer for her amazing and inspiring stories that she has been shared. This is my second books after Light Upon Light and I always been waiting for her books in future. If you are looking something that can change your view in life, this books can be one of them 😊

I picked this book up after reading Light Upon Light and devoured it in a day! I’ve been following Nur Fadhilah Wahid’s Instagram and have loved her anecdotes. I’m truly grateful she published her iman-nourishing stories in book form for us to pick up and read. May Allah grant her the strength and inspiration to keep writing.

However, there were a few publishing errors. I hope the next batch of books will be printed with more care. But all in all, it was a lovely read.

One word ; MasyaAllah beautiful. Every pages make us reflect and ponder upon ourselves. Each chapter gives us hope, and reminds us about the tremendous blessings given by Allah, and the love of our beloved Prophet Muhammad towards us (his ummah). Every words written was meant to bring us flee near to Allah.

love the layouts in the pages from the book brings out what the author want to say by the images because pictures speaks a thousand words. Overall, the reflections and stories that the author writes portrays well with how prophet muhammad and Allah describes from hadiths or in Quran. Recommended to read! and can’t wait for the next book by author!

So beautiful. Every single bit of it. It’s a book of reflections and of love for God and
His Beloved salla Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam.

If I had to choose, my favourite chapter would be “Witnessing”.

I would read this again and again.
