I stumbled upon Modern Muslim Home online a while ago and instantly realized how beautiful their work was–and that it should be sold in stores like Home Goods, Kohl’s and Target- you know, those stores we all shop at but might not choose some of the hanging decor with inspirational quotes simply because we’re looking for something more, well, Islamic in nature?
While I was at the Halal Food Tour in Teaneck, NJ last month, I saw that Mona Hameed, the co-founder of the company actually had a booth at the event. We wanted to meet but were each so busy we couldn’t connect until afterwards, which is when we decided to showcase their work and offer you something special for Eid, as well. Below, Mona describes Modern Muslim Home for us and what inspired her to get started to make some of the most beautiful and thoughtful pieces of home decor available for the, well, , modern Muslim home…
When I first got married and moved into my own place, I realized how much I loved decorating my home and making it my own. What was challenging for me, however, was finding Islamic home decor that would mesh well with the rest of my house. I loved browsing through the wall decor at places like Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Home Goods, full of cute and inspirational quotes, but could never find anything Islamic that was equivalent in style or quality.
This was our inspiration for Modern Muslim Home. Our wall hangings feature verses from the Qur’an, sayings of the Prophet (peace be upon him), quotes from companions of the Prophet (peace be upon them) and famous Muslim scholars, as well as just sweet, inspirational sayings for any American Muslim home.
We believe that Islamic art should have a purpose that goes beyond aesthetics, and that’s why we generally focus on presenting Islamic reminders in a language our audience can understand- English. This way, you can have something on your wall that not only looks beautiful, but increases your faith each time you look at it.
Alhamdulillah, we’re thrilled by the response we’ve gotten. Muslims from all over the U.S. have ordered from our website and given us great feedback on how well our items have fit into their living rooms, children’s nurseries, kitchens, and even laundry rooms! Our products introduce practicality to Islamic art, as well as a familiarity. Modern Muslim Home’s style is more like something you’d find at an American home decor store than something you’d find overseas. Our products are primarily for English-speaking Muslims who are looking for home decor that facilitates a more God-conscious environment for them and their families.
