Winner 'Small Business of the Year', Islam Channel Business Awards - 18 November 2022

A night to remember! Our hearts are filled with joy and gratitude. We are honoured to have won 'Small Business of The Year' at the Islam Channel Business Awards held at The Hilton London Metropole, after we were shortlisted two years prior, in 2020!

The awards night recognised some amazing people and celebrated excellence in Muslim business and we are thrilled to have been a part of it. The whole experience has been amazing! Thank you Islam Channel!

The independent judging panel headed by Sir Iqbal Sacraine OBE, the long build up (thanks Covid!), being shortlisted and appearing live on Islam Channel was certainly nerve-racking but we are proud and humbled to be recognised for our work and achievements!

Running a faith-based business as husband & wife with the intention of spreading the beauty of Islam by designing and creating the highest quality Islamic art, using traditional artisanal hand-carving methods was no small feat and we never imagined the success we have been granted by Allah.

We wish to thank the team behind the scenes as well as the judges and most importantly all our clients who have trusted us and believed in us, far and wide across the world. The duas and well wishes we receive are priceless.

Genuine hard work, originality and sincerity surely has a part in our success but ultimately this success is by the Grace of Allah and we are grateful for this path and journey we have been on. Islam is a beautiful religion and we are so happy to have touched the souls of many with a piece of our work, which ultimately serves a purpose to remind us of our Creator and purpose with beautiful words from the Quran and Hadith.

This business has been a joy for many years and we hope to continue and evolve as long as Allah wills it.
