- We only focus on products that we know will bring out the best in your child and make your job as a Muslim parent (or guardian) easier.
- We believe in high-end materials and first-class customer service.
Maryum Javed-Ali is a loving mother to three beautiful girls, a wife, a creative entrepreneur, and product designer. Since graduating from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, she knew that she wanted to combine her entrepreneurial spirit and creative design skills to start her own business. After graduating, Maryum got married and moved to Pakistan where she started to grow her family.
While raising her three daughters and going through the process of teaching them the basics of Islam, she reflected on the fact that as a child growing up in a moderate-muslim, south asian household she herself had trouble implementing the basic five pillars of Islam in her daily life as a kid. Maybe it was the South Asian approach to teaching Islam or the lack of child-friendly products. Fast forward to 2020, during the Covid-19 lockdown she started creating products to bring her girls to their deen and that is how Sujood was born.
