Essentials of a Daily Namaaz

Now if I am to quiz you about the daily commodities essential for offering Salah, chances are you’ll end up starting with the Prayer rug itself which is better known as Jaenamaz. Now, we all know that the basic purpose of a prayer rug is to provide a clean foothold for prayer as mandated. So it’s an obvious spot-on in any Muslim house-hold. The next one on the check list is prayer beads. We all get confused counting on fingers don’t we? We have quite a collection on that one too.

So we thought of compiling a collection from our end to meet the needs used in prayer. Hold your horses for the ideal clothes for namaz or the Muslim thobes comes in later.

Prayer Rugs East Essence

Starting off, we have a Hot Pink & Silver, JaeNamez Prayer Rug ideally suitable for young maidens who’d love to imbibe a bit of their girl –quotient even on the rug. A handi-work of spirals and silver makes it sassy and sweet! We’ve had many young takers for this one as well as mothers taking this as a stepping –stone for their young daughters to help establish prayers. Next we have another version in Brown & Silver, JaeNamez Prayer Rugs with traditional art in the centre. The third one, a Pink JaeNamaz is again a favorite with girls and mothers. The soft pink manages to capture the attention at the right place. Endowed with rich art-work, the silver play on the rug makes it a must –have. Finally we have some fresh greens in this green JaeNamaz with geometrical patterns. The interplay of silver with varied colors is an interesting mix. The Maroon Base JaeNamaz too works wonder in its feel and look.

Tasbeeh East Essence
We have a variety in prayer beads too. Some are color coded like the one we have in Purple and White, Tasbeeh while others are a simple rendition of the traditional pearly green bead in colors light green. You have other eclectic colors in aqua blue, basic black and light yellow too. Yes we also feature the famous Wood-Brown Tasbeeh as well as transparent Clear Tasbeeh.

I think it’s time for some Ibadaah, what say?

Islamic Clothing in Haute Couture?

Haute couture is a French term which connotes ‘high dressmaking’. Though it’s easier to say that little has remained of the term as of now coz many designers have given their own interpretation to (let’s say exploited) the term to satiate the desire of the market. However, there are many distinct markers synonymous with the same and Haute couture seems to be the flavor of every season in every fashion capital, market or gully.

So what are these markers?

Firstly, there isn’t any cardinal rule to exactly watermark couture from non-couture but with time it has come to common knowledge that an exorbitantly priced garment made out of rare or expensive fabric rendering itself to exclusivity in design, make and its number as well as is custom-fitted to suit the need of the buyer is all what Haute couture defines.

Phew, now that we covered it, lately hybrid trends have contributed into intermixing of various styles and culture amalgamation giving rise to a niche industry which is-Islamic Couture!

The designer Islamic clothing has now become synonymous with high-end dresses like gowns. The rich endowment of a trousseau with precious stones, or intricate handi-work on the fabric goes a long way in stamping the couture tag on the outfit. Though Ramp walks are mostly replete with flowy floor length gowns or skirts and pants it seems that Islamic couture has entered into the skin of the young fashionistas lately, for these dresses are not only relegated to the fashion circuit. Though more often than not high street Muslim fashion has come in the eye of the storm, owing to the stricter diktats of certain Ullemas on Muslim fashion...

The Fancy World of Hijab Pins

One of the most common pet-peeves of our practicing sisters wearing a hijab is to maintain it all up there throughout the day. And the problem becomes more instrumental in the case of our new sisters trying the HIjab. Keeping it firm on the head all day long seems a herculean task enough for the newbies and might spell out the same for the veterans too if they haven’t mastered the art of maintaining firm hijabs with their tricks and twitches. A firm hijab is also essential to maintain the many scarf –styles (read many-folds voluminous hijab, hoody hijab, side hijab,) to cast a modest picture of your personal style.

So what do we know and have what have we learnt so far? The problem and here comes the solution. The answer ladies is Hijab pins. These hijab pins are not your regular metallic pins more in sync with surgical boxes but ornamental broaches. Except for the usage the appearance differs from the regular ones to add to your look. Let me brief you that Hijab pins not only accentuates your scarf by doubling as an accessory but also fastens it firm to the under scarf or scarf itself maintaining your folds and layers tucked in and neat.

The market is replete with myriad choices and one can go bonkers over some. A piece of advice - while fishing out ‘your’ hijab pins make sure that you also select it for its utility as some are just ornamental without feasibility of being used as good pins. So now that we covered it, let me make your life easier by offering our line on the same. Introducing EE’s fresh take on Hijab pins.

KOSHBO PIN- This ornamental rose pin carries a gold base with two stones. The studs make sure that the roving eyes set at the right spot. An ideal wear on something floral.

FLOWER BASKET PIN- This exquisite piece is a little treasure in its own right. Notice the tiny leaf like structures adding more dimensions to the broach. A total must have.

DIAMOND PIN- This disk shaped pin comes with a large stone at the centre surrounded with mini-crystals to finish off the elegant look.

A handy advice when using these pins: try and go for a monotone hijab to make the pin prominent enough!
