What or who inspired you to start your business?
I was inspired by many proud Muslim women. When I started wearing hijab I realized I could bring together fashion and faith and wanted to inspire young Muslim women to embrace their faith. I wanted to beat the stigmas and show that Muslim women can be committed to their faith and still be empowered. “Allah is beautiful and he loves beauty” so why not fuse together fashion and faith?
What are your most popular products or services?
Our most popular products are the Scarves, clutches and jewelry with the Arabic Calligraphy designs. These designs are a moden representation of our culture.
What do you love most about what you do?
I love being able to bring together 2 of my passions; my Muslim faith and fashion! I also love being able to motivate and inspire other young Muslim women to be confident and proud of who they are.
How do you balance being a mom and entrepreneur?
It’s difficult but when you love something, you find time for it. I try to work when my daughter is asleep. I do my best not to let my work get in the way of my bonding time with her.
What single piece of advice would you give moms starting their business?
Find something you are passionate about. It won’t even feel like work. Being a mom is a full time job already so you don’t want your business to feel like work too.
How do you relax?
I play with my daughter. I take her for walks, go for a swim and just laugh in each other’s faces. Our family time always rejuvenates me.
What place inspires you and why?
My daughter! I want to be a good example for her. I want her to grow up to be a confident and proud woman who is tied to her roots and knows who she.
What is your biggest fear?
I don’t really have any significant fears.
What is your motto?
I truly believe that God will never give me more than I can handle and if he’s brought me to it, he’ll bring me through it.
What motivates you?
My family and my community. I can’t lie, my successes also motivate me. When I see my business growing, how can I not be motivated?
What makes you GO?
I really get pumped when I know that I am connecting and inspiring young Muslim women to be proud of who they are and help them to embrace their faith in a modern way!
