# 7 – Mufti Menk Reminders
Mufti Menk is an inspiring, joyous, and soft-spoken Islamic scholar renowned around the world. His speeches and answers attract many people around the world, both online and offline, and of all ages and nationalities. Therefore, it makes sense that people greatly like his quotes and excerpts from his dialogues.
The page presents some of his motivational and inspiring quotes and reminders in the form of images in black and white. The font is easy to read, and each consecutive post inverts the color of the image with font giving the homepage of the account pleasing to look at (sort of like a chessboard, if you will).
The account is fairly simple and barebones, a simple formula, yet seems polished and refined. This is evident from its following; it has 3,591 posts and an impressive following of 749k followers.
I would also recommend that you follow Mufti Menk’s personal account here and do go through our previous post on 50 Inspirational Mufti Menk Quotes and Sayings with Images.
