This year Silver Envelope is very proud and excited to be working with My Halal Kitchen on a new collaboration on some simple, fun and easy products for Islamic Holidays and Halal “Foodies”. We hope this collaboration will continue to grow and we can help create useful tools for the kitchen and for celebration.
Our first collaborative project is our Sweet Dawah™ Cupcake and Cookie Kits. Raana Smith (Silver Envelope) and Yvonne Maffei (My Halal Kitchen) really felt like something was needed that could be a cute and simple way to reach out to your neighbors and friends, educate people more about Islam, while also adding a fun touch for our own celebrations. Our Sweet Dawah Kits aim to do that. Cupcakes and Cookies not included.
Have you ever wanted to reach out to friends and co-workers during Ramadan with a little gift that wasn’t overwhelming and helped explain what Ramadan is all about? Us too!
Partnering with My Halal Kitchen, we have come up with a few really fun cupcake and cookie kits as part of our Sweet Dawah™ Collection. This cupcake kit also helps explain Ramadan with a fun and informational gift tag. A perfect little something to educate and celebrate. Cupcake not included.
- Minimal assembly required
- 12 cello bags
- 18 feet white satin ribbon
- 12-3 x 3 inch cards
- Yvonne’s recipe for Chocolate Cupcakes with Creamy Chocolate Frosting
The informational gift tag contains the following text:
Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice) commemorates the obedience of Prophet Abraham(upon him be peace) to Allah (God) where he and son were tested by the command to sacrifice Ismael, and passed the test which actually saved his son, who was replaced by a ram.
Prophet Muhammad (prayers of God upon him and peace) continued this tradition of obedience and conveyed to us to divide the Udhiya (sacrificed camel, cattle, lamb or goat) into thirds. One-third of the sacrifice is designated for the poor, one-third for the owner, and one-third to give away as gifts.
Eid al-Adha is a three-day celebration observed after the Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah). It begins on the the 10th day of Dhul-Hijja (Islamic Month) for Muslims worldwide, regardless of cultural background or location. In the West, however, many Muslim communities will host gatherings and parties on the weekend immediately following the day of Eid since Eid al-Adha is not typically recognized as a three-day holiday exempting them from work or school.
Mubarak is the Arabic word used to congratulate or wish happiness. Muslims around the world (both Arabic speakers and non-Arabic speakers) use the phrase “Eid Mubarak” to wish each other well on this blessed holiday.
FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS, EID MUBARAK!
