Company Feature: Emoshe Boutique

Asalam Waliykum, 

One thing I want to do more of on my blog is interviewing and promoting Muslim women who are getting started in the business world. I think it is very important to show support to sisters and give our customs to them. I personally only buy hijabs and clothing from Islamic stores online, when possible. People often have worries about quality, and security but most companies allow customers to review items and blog about it, record a YT video and reccomend through other social media. So good stores are always recommended and well reviewed.  

One of these companies is the delightful Emoshe Boutique, a company owned by the lovely Sister Sana.

DIY- Moroccan Hammam in your own home!

Asalam waliykum,

I never thought of doing a post on this before, only after seeing a few sisters speak about their Hammam experiences did I think to do this. This is a sort of continuation of my last post, the Moroccan Haul which can be found Here!!

Moroccan Haul- Moroccan goodies

Asalam waliykum 

I was not to sure what to call this post, it is not really a haul, more of recommendation of certain products I received, used and love. My intention for this post it not to boast what I have, or to show off. My intention is to reccomend products that may be of benefit to sisters that are also affordable (apart from the Argan oil) for anyone and most are 100% natural!

(2) Quilled Handmade Greeting Cards: Baby Prams!!!!

Asalam waliykum 

I was inspired to make these cards after seeing something with a similar design in the shops. I love unique designs that are not the usual boring themed cards. I got a lot of positive feedback on this design, and it is now one of my favourite cards to make!

The first time I made these I didn't have a proper quiliing slotted tool and so you can say it was a little rough at the edges.

Hijab For Men... To veil or not to veil?

Asalam waliykum, 

**Excuse the title, I am not promoting mean to wear the headscarf in this post.**

One of the biggest misconception about Islam is in regards to Hijab. In this post I will be focusing more on the clothing for men. We are forever hearing and read about the Hijab of the woman in the media, in the blogging world, you tube etc. I have hardly come across anyone speak about the Hijab for men. This is a great injustice being done here, Islam is about equity and although Hijab may not look exactly the same for men as it does for women, they still have to wear another form of hijab which is Fard/obligatory for them.
