Review | The Islamic Greeting Card Store


I love giving presents and cards to people, I used to buy cards for friends birthdays and mothers day etc but when I stopped celebrating birthdays and other 'occasions' there was avoid I was looking to fill.
I came across the Islamic greeting card store and absolutely fell in love with the designs of the greetings cards, as well as the idea of Islamic cards with very meaningful messages on the front. I loved the fact that there were cards for special occasions like Eid and weddings but also cards that you could give for no reason, like an 'I love you for the sake of Allah' card for your husband/wife or cards for a child completing the Quran.

There are cards to wish one well for Hajj & Umrah, sympathy cards with a dua written on the front, a card for your mother, cards to give to new muslims and soo many others.

So the other day I bought 2 cards.


The first was a card for my mum. My mum is the most amazing person in the whole wide world and she means everything to me. When I saw this card  I realised that I don't show her how much I appreciate how hard she works and everything she does for us. This card was the perfect way to give her an unexpected reminder that we (my younger siblings and I) love her. When she got the card she loved it too alhamdulillah, she wanted to display it straight away and now it sits on her bed side chest of drawers so she can be reminded everyday she wakes up, goes to sleep, looks in the mirror etc (=


The second card I bought was for my little brother's and sister's Tajweed teacher. I just thought It'd be nice for them to give something to her as she is an amazing teacher mashaAllah and they have learnt a lot from her because of the way she engages with them and encourages them (they don't dread sitting down for 3 hours to practice reading Quran). But also because I wanted to just buy a card lol.

The quality of these cards will not disappoint, they are an in-between matt and gloss finish, the card is good quality as is the envelope (which you don't have to lick to stick).
The price of the cards are brilliant ( I got them for £1.99 each) and I also got free delivery because of the free delivery to UK customers offer (not sure if it's still available so do check the website).
The cards were delivered in an 'do not bend' envelope which kept them in good shape through the postal service and they arrived within a week.

Overall the Islamic greeting card store has 2 thumbs up from me and I will definitely buying more from them in the future inshaAllah.

I wish I could buy all of the cards and just give them randomly to people. There are a variety of cards to choose from, for every person in your life. The cards show people that you appreciate them and everything they do for you. Sometimes we need to stop and let the people in our lives know that we care and what better way of doing that then with an Islamic card with a beautiful message.

I Took My Driving Test!

Salaam all, I recently took my practical driving test and I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings of that day with you inshaAllah. On Wednesday the 18th I had my driving test. I had practiced all  I could and now the rest was down to Allah swt. I tried to keep myself calm by telling myself that whatever happens it is Allah's will and if I don't pass then maybe this time I wasn't supposed to. As I stood for Taraweeh that night my heart was pounding as I asked Allah to keep me safe on the road and also for me to pass. After praying I felt a lot calmer and soon enough fell asleep. Woke up for Suhoor, prayed Fajr and tried to go back to sleep. All I could think about was how much I wanted to pass, not because I really want to drive or anything, but just because taking lessons was taking up a lot of my time and money that I could spend on other things. As well as taking up my parents time and my uncle's. I got a couple of hours of sleep and woke up bright and

Hijab Style's To Suit Your Face Shape

So you're trying to follow a hijab tutorial but your hijab just doesn't look like the person doing the tutorial, you get frustrated because you can't get it right. Well to be honest I don't think it's so much you getting it wrong, it may just be that the hijab style being demonstrated looks better on the person doing the tutorial due to the shape of that person's face. Just like when you need to get a haircut, when styling your hijab, you have to consider the shape of your face. I've had many people tell me that hijab doesn't 'suit' them because their face is too round, or their cheeks are too chubby, which is the reason why they don't wear hijab, in my opinion hijab suits everyone, you just have to figure out how to wear it to suit you. Contrary to what many think, hijab wasn't prescribed to make you look 'ugly' it is to make you look modest. In this post I have tried to look at some face shapes and find some hijab style i
