When it comes to deciding your next big life decision or career move, sometimes we can suffer from analysis paralysis…

Shoutout to you if you’re the type of person who relies heavily on logic and analytical process to make smarter decisions…


Or maybe you like waiting for the answer to fall from the sky with your next move written in a secret closed envelope named “firstname”… or the revelation of a sign, in a dream maybe… 


Or maybe you’re too cool for any of that and you just follow your heart to do what you want to do, you believe the mind has little role in decision making and intuition is woo-woo stuff…finding clarity is a matter of the heart…


So the big question is – which way of decision-making is the best? 


The answer is none of those things. Or rather – all of the above…


Of course, I’m nobody to tell you that. But Allah SWT and the Prophet SAW have surely guided us on how to make decisions. 


This brand new short video (see Below) I’ve just uploaded on the blog explains all the important steps so go ahead and watch it before you make your next important decision. 


I’ve also added a simple cheatsheet to quickly remember the simple steps involved in making ANY decision, big or small. 


As a doctor turned online entrepreneur, I can tell you I have had to make my fair share of difficult decisions about my career path in the last few years. But I wouldn’t go back and change any of the big decisions I had to make.


The reason is not that I am too sure of myself. It’s most definitely not that I’m oversmart or overconfident haha. Quite the contrary… I am a certified introvert (INFJ!) and can be ridiculously indecisive. (Like spending an hour deciding whether I want to order chinese, or thai food, and then ending up getting so hungry and eating instant noodles.) 

The reason why I have learned how to be confident in the important goals I choose and have complete clarity in my path is simply this – I take the time to do my necessary homework before making my important decisions. And then, trust in Allah’s plan for me. 


For example, I vet all the pros and cons, consult the right people, make istikhara and dua, and only then seal it with the stamp of approval that comes from within my heart/ intuition. 


In other words, I believe to make important life decisions, we must religiously follow every step in the Quran and the guidance of our Prophet S.A.W. And by then, your decisions will make themselves for you. 


When you involve Allah in your decision-making process, you get a very deep sense of peace and certainty in Allah’s plan for you. Our job is to just uncover that plan by following the steps of logic, consultation, intuition, dua, and Divine guidance from Istikhara. That’s it. 


Making difficult decisions doesn’t have to be so complicated. 


Reserve all that energy and time (that you’d otherwise spend on decision-making) for dealing with the consequent life changes that come along with that decision. You’ll get ahead and thank yourself later. 


Don’t spend it overthinking, overanalyzing or even overasking (literally asking everyone including strangers you met only once in the cafe and your 5 year old niece, “Hey there, do you think I should find a better job or start my own side-hustle?”. *guilty cough*)


If you sometimes suffer from ‘analysis paralysis’ and have trouble getting clarity in your path and goals, today I have a quick video for you – it uncovers the 4 steps of making important decisions and it’s a must-have in the toolbox of a conscious Muslim. Watch the video below:

Decision Making System in Islam: 4 Steps for Making Key Decisions in Life

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said,

“A strong believer is better and dearer to Allah than a weak one, and both are good. Keenly pursue what benefits you, seek help only from Allah, and do not give up. If something befalls you, do not say, ‘If only I had done otherwise.’ Rather say, ‘Allah so determined and did as He willed,’ for ‘if only’ opens the door to Satan’s work.”
