Muslimah Planners 2018: Plan Your Life and Deen Beautifully

Another year draws to a close, and if you’re anything like me you’ve already started creating a mental to-do-list for 2018. Setting both personal and business goals, and planning to buckle down on your Quran studies once and for all.

I’ve had my eye on a few gorgeous planners created by some awesomely talented Muslimahs. In one of the Facebook groups I’m in, someone asked where they could purchase an Islamic themed planner. It reminded me that I needed to order my planners for the coming year! I had saved my favorites on Facebook along with about a million other things and I didn’t want to dig through all the viral videos, life-saving articles and enticing recipes I know I’ll never make. So I suggested that we create a list of all the super-cool planers available for 2018 by Muslimahs. So here it is! A listing of daily, weekly, and monthly Muslimah created planners for 2018.

Mariam Poppins

This sister has created an adorable stationery and design studio and goes by the name, Mariam Poppins. What’s not to love? She sells journal inserts as well and a yearly planner that can be customized. Her planner is undated so it can be used for 2018, or any year. Once you’ve purchased your planner, you’ll undoubtedly want to grab up some of her cute stickers or inserts to further customize your planner. She sells sticker sheets, among them a sheet of coffee cup stickers that says “duas & coffee” If that isn’t the cutest thing I don’t know what is. Her planner includes sections to help you manage your finances, a weekly spread, “homemaker workflow” and health and fitness sections of course. She also offers an Ibaadah Essentials journal that you can use to track your salat and organize your Quran studies, keeping track of what surah you’re on etc. Products can be purchased at MP Studio.

Emaan Boost

There are also inspirational Quran and Hadith quotes sprinkled throughout the planner. Several beautiful covers are available to choose from. The planner ships from Australia and can be purchased from Emaan Boost.

The Pampered Muslimah

The Pampered Muslimah

See the awesome “Girl, You Got This Insha’Allah” planner above? This is one of my favorite planners, the one I had been keeping my eye on and plan to purchase before it sells out! The planners are beautifully designed, full color with perfectly coordinating typography. The dates are from January 2018-December 2018, which includes a Ramadan to-do list, a section to record your missed fasts as well as a Quran reading schedule. There is also another cover option which reads: “Humble, be  humble, and start with Bismillah” (keep in mind the inside content is the same). The planner measures 5.75 in x 8 in and comes with a thick card stock cover and white wire-o-binding. The Pampered Muslimah also sells these adorable rolls of Muslimish wasabi tape (pictured above) that you can use to decorate your planners, journals or crafts. The three tape styles include: 1. Minarets 2. Alhamdulillah for Everything and 3. WAKE. PRAY. SLAY. REPEAT. The 2018 planners are currently sold out on The Pampered Muslimah’s Etsy shop, but can be purchased from Silver Lining (coupon code “ND2018”), Islamic Pearls (use code “happy20” for 20% off), and NurShop.

The durable leather case is meant to be a keepsake and you would just replenish your planner or journal by purchasing additional notebooks and inserts as you need them. This item is so beautifully crafted and perfect for a book lover or someone who loves to journal. It comes in eight colors and the Tall + dimensions when open are 235mm x 315mm, approx. 9.3” x 12.4.

    WOW these journals are super quirky and different all of them are my favourites! I feel like kicking myself as I have already bought my 2018 journal and since my love for writing has grown over the years I always get gifted journals of all kinds so I have built up a small collection!

    I love all of these!!!!
