10 Day Digital Detox Reflections

Hello and Salaams!

This page is now being revised and edited for inclusion in my upcoming book, published by Beacon Books!

Do look out for a link to pre-order, coming soon.

Peace and Love,

Sidra Ansari

PS To help me on my journey to enoughism I will write down 3 things I am grateful for at the end of each post. These are:

1. The ease of accessibility in uncountable Quran recitations/ talks/ sacred knowledge etc.

2. SeekersHub.org

They’re doing such a fantastic job, spreading knowledge of our deen, Islam, for free. There is sooo much material on that website that there is no excuse to not learn something new everyday! May we do just that!

3. Eid! Eid Mubarak to all. May all our good works be accepted and may we live to see another Ramadan.

Since you’re here I have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the the7ofus.blog than ever but advertising revenues are non-existent. And unlike many lifestyle magazines, I haven’t put up a paywall – I want to keep my writing as open as I can. So you can see why I need to ask for your help. These posts take a lot of time and hard work to produce. It would be amazing if you could help fund me by donating a coffee a two to keep me going! Please press here to give.

  1. Well done on your detoxation dearest
    May we all use our precious time constructively. It was actually good to hear you on the other side of the phone now and again (instead of reading msgs)
    May we all learn to limit our use of these digital devices in sha Allah Ameen
    May God help us all. Thanks for the inspiring post Sidra. Keep up the great work!
