During these difficult times we believe that now, more than ever, it is so important for the Muslim community to come together. That’s why we have created The Muslim Business List. A place where you can find, support and even add Muslim businesses that you love, no matter where you are in the world!
Let’s lift our community by spending the Muslim pound on businesses that can grow and continue to support the causes that matter to us.
You can find The Muslim Business List over on our website, where you can view the list or add your own business or any Muslim-owned businesses you’d recommend!
Why Supporting Muslim Businesses Is Important To Us
The concept of community is woven into the teachings of Islam. Beyond congregations, the importance of community extends to the very core of our faith, fostering a sense of unity, support, and shared responsibility. This unity transcends geographical, cultural, and racial boundaries, the diversity within the community should not just acknowledged but celebrated.
Our community is a mosaic of different backgrounds, languages and traditions which are all bound together by a common faith – and we think that is beautiful!
Why We Believe In Mutual Support & Solidarity
This community extends far beyond our shared beliefs – it’s a lifeline of support. Prophet Muhammad emphasised the importance of helping one another, both in times of joy and hardship. This mutual support system creates a safety net, ensuring that no member of the community is left to face challenges alone.
Hadith said, “The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion, and sympathy are just like one body. When any part of the community suffers, the whole body feels pain”. This highlights the importance of addressing social issues collectively, and working towards a just and equitable society where every individual’s rights are respected.
Community in Islam is not just a congregation of people with shared beliefs; it is a living, breathing entity that embodies unity, support, justice and shared spirituality. As Muslims, we are reminded that our journey is embraced by a community that stands united in diversity – a testament to the strength that emerges when hearts and hands come together in the name of faith.
We hope that our Muslim Business List can be used to help those in need, as well as act as a way to bring the Muslim community together. Please help us bring a little light into the world and support local Muslim businesses where you can – don’t forget to add your favourites to our list so other people can discover new Muslim-owned businesses!
