Mohammed Faris has re-discovered a vocabulary and grammar with which Muslims aspiring to lead more productive lives may use to formulate their goals and communicate their mission in ways that are authentic to their faith. He presents not just an antidote to the soul-crushing rat race we all face, but a systematic, holistic and life-changing solution towards harmonising dunya work (in whatever field) with a focus on akhirah.
