Mohammed Faris (Abu Productive) is the founder of ProductiveMuslim.com, an online social enterprise dedicated to boosting productivity in the Muslim World.
He was born in Tanzania (of Yemeni descent) but spent the majority of his life growing up in Saudi Arabia when his parents migrated there. He later pursued his tertiary education at the University of Bristol in the UK where he graduated with a Masters in Finance and Investment.
It was at the University of Bristol that he first developed his leadership skills and engagement with numerous grassroots Muslim projects and developed his vision to serve the Ummah in whatever capacity he can.
Starting with a personal blog in 2008 called “ProductiveMuslim.com” he combined his love for productivity with love of teaching to help Muslims worldwide understand the unique perspective of connecting the demands of today’s modern world with Islamic values and principles to lead productive lives.
His journey with his blog & later online training organisation has set Mohammed Faris apart as an international speaker, trainer and author who can distil the broad concepts of Islamic values into practical, actionable steps for Muslims to acquire the tangible skill sets and motivation needed to lead productive lives for the sake of Allah SWT and find true success in deen, dunya and akhirah.
