The holy month of Ramadan is almost coming to an end and Muslim brothers and sisters across the globe are set to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr in joyful acknowledgment of the month. Eid is one of the most anticipated events in the Islamic calendar.

Eid-al-fitr which is basically the Festival of Breaking Fast is an event that follows the Islamic month of Ramadan which is observed by millions of Muslims around the world.

As it fast approaches, this is the perfect time to show your Muslim friends and family how much you appreciate them with heartfelt gifts that reflect their faith and culture. Eid is commemorated by exchanging gifts one can remember or money (known as Eidi/Eidia) with loved ones.

Customized Prayer Mat: Elevate their prayer experience with a personalized prayer mat adorned with traditional Kenyan patterns and motifs. Not only will it add beauty to their prayer space, but it will also serve as a reminder of your thoughtfulness and appreciation for their faith.
