Monthly Reflections

April Reflections

Assalaamu ‘alaikum – peace be with you.

Sincerity is defined as a state of being genuine, honest, and free from deceit or pretence. It is a pure, open state that comes from the heart and invites self-reflection on our motives and intentions. The quest for sincerity is an active process, an uphill climb and a life-long mission and is probably one of the most difficult forms of self-reflection but probably one of the most important. Sincerity requires bravery and a willingness to be vulnerable.

We at Inspirited Minds understand the importance of sincerity in all our endeavours, and hope it is something we can continually and consistently develop and cultivate. Being sincere and true to ourselves allows us to connect more deeply with who we truly are and what our purpose is. It is a journey we hope you can join us on, and as always, we are open to your comments, ideas and suggestions; so please do get in touch by replying to this email.

Du’as always,
