1. Personalized Quran
Islamic gifts are an ideal way to show your loved ones just how much you care. From stylish items that add beauty and style to their home to items that promote spiritual development – there is sure to be something suitable for every taste in Islam today.
An engraved or embossed Quran makes for an exceptional and thoughtful present, and can help strengthen their connection to Allah’s sacred book. Add their name as an extra personal touch for an exceptional and memorable present!
Another popular gift idea is a personalized dua book, which can serve as daily prayer reminders and be tailored specifically for them based on verses or surahs they like. Add something personal by including their favorite verses/surahs into the gift itself!
Your friend might also appreciate receiving an Islamic calendar featuring inspirational quotes and religious symbols to promote spiritual development and make them smile every day – plus it helps support independent artists! This gift would make the perfect present to commemorate Islamic holidays!
2. Personalized Islamic Calendar
Gift hampers with an Islamic theme make thoughtful and useful presents, perfect for Ramadan or any religious holiday! Included can be items such as the Quran, prayer beads, Islamic-scented candles and other religious or spiritual memorabilia.
Give the perfect present this holiday season: an Islamic calendar personalized just for them. Also known as the Hijri Calendar, the Islamic calendar follows lunar cycles with each month having 29 or 30 days until Dhu al-Hijjah arrives and determines whether or not crescent can be seen on its surface.
Muharram marks an important date in Shi’ah and Sunni Muslims’ calendars: it commemorates the Battle of Karbala in 680 A.D. This marks both mourning for many, and an opportunity for self-improvement. Following Muharram comes Rabi’ al-Awwal which marks Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)’s birthday (570 AD), yet also serves as a time for mourning since Fatimah died during this month.
3. Personalized Islamic Jewelry
Muslim friends of all kinds appreciate receiving gifts that are tailored specifically to their interests. From picture frames, books and journals to tassels or journals – there’s sure to be an Islamic present that makes them feel special and appreciated! These personalized presents make great Eid, Ramadan, Nikkah, Graduation or Birthday presents!
If your Muslim friends enjoy listening to Quran recitations, consider gifting them a portable Quran player as an inspirational yet modern gesture. They’ll be able to listen to recitations, translations or Tafsir (exegesis) whenever they please!
At the same time, you could give them a personalized and beautiful Islamic calligraphy canvas with their name or heartfelt message written on it – this unique gift will add charm and appreciation to their home decor while reminding them of your affection and appreciation for them! Islamic-inspired jewelry such as earrings or necklaces with Arabic calligraphy or artwork would also show how much you care and support their spiritual growth.
4. Personalized Islamic Artwork
If your friends or family members appreciate art, consider giving them Islamic-themed artwork or decorative objects that remind them of their faith each day. Such gifts will add beauty to their home while serving as a constant reminder.
Floral patterns are one of the most iconic motifs in Islamic art and were frequently used to embellish clothing, personal items, and buildings. Muslim artists did not attempt to represent nature directly; rather they attempted to communicate its significance; for instance a repeated curve could symbolize eternity while an arabesque (geometricized vegetal patterns) could convey divine order in nature.
Islamic art is an amazingly diverse visual tradition that spans over eight millennia and includes numerous styles. One way of categorizing it is according to which dynasties ruled during each period in its history; from Umayyad and Abbasid periods through Ottomans and Safavids until more regionalized periods such as Safavids or Ottomans came to power. While much Islamic art may have religious connotations, much can also be appreciated by non-Muslims alike.
5. Personalized Islamic Textiles
Gift-giving traditions are an integral part of Islamic culture, and there are plenty of opportunities to give meaningful presents that will resonate with Muslim friends and family members. Consider an elegant tasbih engraved with meaningful calligraphy or prayer mat embroidered with patterns tailored specifically for them; or give a truly distinctive piece like an Islamic artwork- or calligraphy-themed jigsaw puzzle as it serves both fun activity while being an unforgettable reminder of their faith.
Cufflinks featuring Arabic text from the Kirkor Minassian Collection make an excellent present, marking allegiance and wealth display among rulers as well as honoring ruling families. This tradition continued into Islamic states, where epigraphic bands would signify allegiance or authority of new rulers – “Glory to the Sultan,” for instance, conveying spiritual and political authority of each king or queen; also adding elegance and refinement to their wardrobe.
