Asalamalaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuhu
My name is Umm Sulaiman, Founder and Director of: “Al Muttaqun” – the online Islamic Shop selling baby and childrenâ€™s toys, books, homeschooling/educational materials and parenting books. I chose the name “Al Muttaqun” from the Quran, meaning (English translation) The Pious/God-Fearing.
“â€¦Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders of the pious (al muttaqun).”
I am a revert and mother to a 3 year old little boy mashallah tabarak Allah. What inspired me to set up my business, was the difficulties I faced when trying to buy toys and various items for my son that did not contain images or music. As parents it is our Islamic responsibility to raise and nurture our children upon the Quran and Sunnah and to keep away from that which is impermissible.
The Prophet (saaw) said: “All of you are shepherds and will be held responsible for his flock”.
(Sahih: Al Bukhari and Muslim)
The Prophet (saaw) also warned us against bringing images into the house and said that this is a sin and that it deprives a person of good.
“The Angels (of mercy) do not enter the house in which there is a dog or there are pictures/statues”
(Sahih: Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Al Muttaqun does NOT sell anything that contains images or music, so In shaa Allah the Angels will enter in to our homes and we will not be deprived of good (blessings).
Al Muttaqun is more than just an Online Children’s Toy Shop, it is also a resource for sisters and homeschoolers to go to In Shaa Allah. It has dawah/evidence from the Quran and Sunnah and we feature/support “Little explorers” Children’s Islamic magazine (free of images and music), The “Muslim Kids Series” Free Islamic Apps (free of images and music), “Elizabeth Lymer” The Islamic Author and Rhymer and “Ummah in Need” Muslim Charity that sends aid to our brothers and sisters in Syria.
I have also designed and manufactured my own products of faceless soft toys and baby ratttle’s, which have all been handmade here in the UK and CE Tested.
The “Giraffe Rattle” and “My First Elephant” are black and white in colour – which is great for babies and encourages visual development!
