Women in Palestine project!

We have some new products coming soon insha’Allah, made by women in Palestine from Bethlehem, Hebron and Gaza.
I hope insha’Allah to provide an opportunity to promote and sell beautiful pieces they create, to all my Smart Ark customers.

All the pieces are hand stitched in their homes using the traditional Palestinian method of cross stitch called Tatreez, which is passed down through generations. The products are made to order and will be available in about a month’s time insha’Allah.

These women are living in difficult conditions due to the ongoing war and occupation. They have little or no income and depend on sales as a main source of revenue for their families. Many women suddenly become breadwinners due to becoming widowed, or the men are imprisoned, disabled deported or cannot find work.

Eid Mubarak Form Smart Ark

Taqaballahu Minna wa Minkum! (May Allah accept it from us and you)
Eid Mubarak to everyone.

Its sad to say goodbye to Ramadan, a month that brought us closer to Allah and uplifted our spirituality, full of reflection and hope for Allah’s forgiveness. For many of the ummah it has been a struggle through oppression and poverty. Lest not forget those who have suffered and keep remembering them in our duas.

Thank you to all our friends and customers for all your support!

eid mubarak

A story of the Burglar and Maalik bin Dinaar

A burglar scaled the wall of Maalik bin Dinar’s house one night and easily managed to get inside. Once inside the house, the thief was disappointed to see that there was nothing inside actually worth stealing. The owner of the home was inside at the time, he was busy performing prayer. Realizing that he was not alone, Maalik quickly ended his prayer and turned around to face the thief. Without showing any sign of being shocked or afraid, Maalik calmly extended greetings of peace and then said, “My brother, may Allah forgive you. You entered my home and found nothing that is worth taking, yet I do not want you to leave my home without taking away some benefit.”

He stood up, went to another part of the room, and came back with a jug full of water. He looked into the eyes of the burglar and said, “Make ablution and perform two units of prayer, for if you do so, you will leave my home with a greater treasure than you had initially sought when you entered it.”

Much humbled by Maalik’s manners and words, the thief said, “Yes, that is a generous offer indeed.”


After making ablution and performing two units of prayer, the burglar said, “O Maalik, would you mind if I stayed for a while, for I want to stay to perform two more units of prayer?”

Maalik said, “Stay for whatever amount of prayer Allah decrees for you to perform now.”

The thief ended up spending the entire night at Maalik’s house. He continued to pray until the morning. Then Maalik said, “Leave now and be good.”

But instead of leaving, the thief said, “Would you mind if I stayed here with you today, for I have made an intention to fast the day?”

“Stay as long as you wish,” said Maalik.

The burglar ended up staying for a number of days, praying during the late hours of each night and fasting throughout the duration of each day. When he finally decided to leave, the burglar said, “O Maalik, I have made a firm resolve to repent for my sins and for my former way of life.”

Maalik said, “Indeed, that is in the Hand of Allah.”

The man did mend his ways and began to lead a life of righteousness and obedience to Allah. Later on, He came across another burglar he knew. [His friend] said to him, “Have you found your treasure yet?”

He said, “My brother, what I found is Maalik bin Dinaar. I went to steal from him, but it was he who ended up stealing my heart. I have indeed repented to Allah, and I will remain at the door [of His Mercy and Forgiveness] until I achieve what his obedient, loving slaves have achieved.”
