Divine Wisdom for Happiness - The Birth

Divine Wisdom for happiness was birthed in the year 2006, by Mrs Zhikrah A. Afolake Akanbi, CEO of Libragold Group. After an illness which would usually claim lives, but due to the timely and divine intervention of the Almighty Allah, coupled with her strong faith in the healing powers of Allah, the life of Mrs Zhikrah Akanbi was speared and healed of this ailment.

During the cause of the sickness which lasted eight months, she read her English Quran religiously and picked interest in reading. She read a lot of Islamic books authored by seasoned Islamic scholars. She read as if her life and healing depended on the amount of knowledge she could acquire. It was during this period she picked interest in writing. She promised her God that if she can be granted permanent healing, she would publicize the beauty in Islam and she would engage much in charity by sharing knowledge and applying divine wisdom to living a pious life of peace and happiness. Hence, the Quran and Hadith quotes, which she broadcasted then as ‘Keeping Faith with Allah’.

After a couple of years, she decided to go motivational and inspirational applying Quran and Hadith quotes to daily living. ‘Islam, is a complete way of life. Islam brings inner peace, if only you know’, In the words of Mrs Akanbi. With this resolve, even with her very busy business schedule, the Divine Wisdom for Happiness, evolved, for Monday and Friday inspiration. Added to it, is Ramadan Diet for the 30 days of Ramadan and Ramadan nightly prayers.
