Title: Reclaim Your Heart

Book Descriptions: Reclaim Your Heart was written to awaken the heart and provide a new perspective on love, loss, happiness, and pain. A manual of sorts, Reclaim Your Heart will teach readers how to live in this life without allowing life to own you. It is a manual of how to protect your most prized possession- the heart.
Reclaim Your Heart is filled with insightful reflections that cover a variety of topics that center around Love, Happiness, Hardships, Faith, Community and Life.
The reflections, which are short and to the point, bring the reader back to the main topic of the book, our relationship with our Creator. Each reflection offers insight into coming closer to the Creator, deepening our relationship with Him and thus fixing all the physical, emotional and spiritual ills of our heart.
Yasmin Mogahed uses her own personal struggles and interactions as she delves into what is truly at risk when we move away from the our Creator. She poses thought provoking questions which causes the reader to reflect on their own struggles.
Yasmin Mogahed isn't just an inspirational and motivational speaker and writer, she is also a poet, Masha Allah. Included in the book are a little over a dozen of her poems. I had the fortunate opportunity to attend a conference where she read: I Prayed For Peace Today. It was a moving poem that left many of us in tears.
I definitely felt uplifted reading Reclaim Your Heart and hope to benefit Insha Allah as I continue my own journey to get closer to my Creator, the Al-mighty.
