As a muslim, we believe that yes we can plan but we have to bear in mind, the ultimate plan belongs to Allah Almighty. So how can we adopt the Kaizen philosophy in our life? Kaizen suggests us to strive and work towards achieving our goals bit by bit, and Islam does not stop us from working and having goals in our life. However, as a muslim we have to integrate our effort and prayer or Doa. Muslims believe Doa is the best weapon.
