Royal Evening Gown From Islamic Design House


FAITH. FUN. FASHION. Here comes my first Modest Outfit post.

While there are so many options to shop dresses online, I particularly chose this one site Islamic Design House dot Com for my Eid attire. Ever since I came to know of this website, I am so hooked to their gorgeous collection of Abayas, Hijabs, Tunics and Prayer Mats.


IDH decided to offer me one of their trending modest outfits. From their beautiful collection, I said Yes to the Silk Route - Royal Evening Gown, for I felt the name is so appropriate and the maxi dresses suit me well.



Women around the world treat Clothing in the form of fun and fashion. Islamic Design House offers us a chance to stay one step ahead of style with modesty, comfort and confidence. They serve fashion to women of all faith, as a mix of tradition and trend.

About Islamic Design House - Everyone loves an amazing fashion affair and that's what IDH celebrates. It is an UK based company and they love to pioneer. Their goal is to provide the trendiest range of unique products, prompt delivery and exceptional customer service with passionate sales representatives in every major country, including, US, UK, Canada, Egypt and India.

They say - ‘Faith’ sets the rhythm of our heart, 'Fun' is the flavor of our flair and 'Fashion' is what we do best!

I was very excited to receive the package from IDH. They sent me the Jilbab as well as a Hijab. Double Deal! And when I took them out of the cover my first impression was 'MashaAllah! Wow!'

For this Eid, I am going sizzling black - The Royal Evening Gown with In Essence's Black Poly Chiffon Hijab. Choosing from their Elegant Abayas/Jilbabs collection is one of the best ways to look classy and elegant.



Chiffon material with Satin lining and long Bead Motifs gracefully adorn the yoke and shoulders. Nice fabric and the flow is lovely. I personally loved to see the beads are back in trend. The Satin lining gives a sheen to the dress, making it a royal affair.


There are many outfits I found as good buys at Islamic Design House, and this Silk Route's royal evening gown is one among them. This maxi dress is a signature for special occasions. From weddings to parties to friends outing or family dinner, it effortlessly makes you stand out from others in a simple yet stylish manner.


The chiffon gives a beautiful fall and the elegant bead motif on the top make this piece extremely desirable one. The convenient thing is that we can also pair this Abaya up with different colored scarfs for different looks.


Price might look a bit high for the Indian customers, but the products are worth a buy. I have purchased Abayas from Saudi and Dubai. So comparatively, I see the price range is moderate for the grace and style IDH offers.

Regarding the measurements, the size chart is precise. They offer different fits as well as different length options. Measure and choose your fittings appropriately, so that there will be no disappointment. I wore flats. So the length was perfect. But if you wear Heels, then I would suggest to order one length longer.


I have bought few Hijabs and Jilbabs from this brand at Amazon India. And they were classy!

At first, there was a mistake in the size I ordered. When I mailed them, they acted quick and made sure that I got my product way before Eid. IDH customer care is friendly and they strive to serve you better. Check the Return/Exchange policy for more details.

How To Make Our Children Understand The Essence Of Laylat ul Qadr

Assalamu Alaikum!

Looks like Ramadan just started and the time flies in the blink of an eye. Here we are at the edge of Ramadan, awaiting Eid. But the lessons and activities for the month is not over yet. Allah has given us many opportunities to do good deeds and repent our sins, and we are already showered with His countless blessings. Laylatul Qadr is one such blessing that Allah has bestowed upon us, and it is our gateway to Jannah.

When the Sahabas asked the Prophet (pbuh) that 'in earlier days, people have lived longer till 900 years and they were able to worship Allah for a longer period and thus, reaped the rewards.' They wished for an opportunity to have that sort of virtue and honour. That is when Allah has revealed the verse on Laylat ul Qadr to our Prophet (pbuh). Allah has mentioned in the Quran that ‘The night of Qadr is better than a thousand months’.

While we make use of this blessed night to the fullest, our children should also know the significance of it and the reason why we seek it. So make sure they are keen on prayers in the last 10 days of Ramadan. Encourage the children to do good deeds, like giving charity, being nicer to people, praying a little extra and helping others.

There are few activities to make the children interested to do it on their own, on Laylat ul Qadr.

1. Knowledge of Laylat ul Qadr - The children should know it is the very night, Quran’s first verse ‘Iqra’ was revealed to our Prophet (pbuh) while he was meditating in the Hira Cave. This night comes down as a gift from Allah, and this one night of worship equals to worshipping for 1000 months. And that itself explains the significance.

2. Memorizing Surah Qadr - It is a small and easy surah to memorise for children. So that they can recite the surah in their prayers during last 10 days. Also teach them its Tafseer, as a part of your storytelling session (Read Ramadan Activities For Children)



3. Duas and Supplication Printables - Saying the duas together will help the children to memorise the most powerful yet small Dua that the our Prophet (pbuh) has advised us to recite more during the last 10 days of Ramadan. Prepare Dua Cards and insist them to ask for forgiveness. For even the smallest mistakes they did, they should be aware that Allah is the Most Gracious to forgive them. So let them say Asthagfirullah Al Aleem after every salah.



4. Encourage to remain in I’thikaf - Women and Children can observe I’thikaf at home, but the Niyyath is important. Even stepping on our Musalla for a salah, with the I’thikaf intention is rewarded. Keeping the I’thikaf niyyath, every time we enter the masjid, will reap rewards for even the minimum time spent there.

Construct a small I’thikaf tent or set a prayer area in the corner of your house. Keep a small Musalla, a Quran, a Tasbeeh and few Islamic Children’s books to read and hang Dua cards. Thus the kids will understand that this place is only meant to remember Allah and not to play games or unnecessary talks.

5. Sadaqah and Goodie Bags -

Encourage the kids to save a part of their pocket money to donate during this night. This will also give the knowledge of Zakat calculating as well as the idea of sharing. While gaining rewards of the 1000 months. Also let them fill the bags with goodies. They will be happier to distribute to the people at masjid. This activity will also make them feel responsible as well as getting to know about the significance of the blessed night.

The night we await is arriving, but when? That remains a mystery, however we have given some indication that it falls on odd numbered days - 21, 23, 25, 27 or 29. But are we certain of our Day 1 of Ramadan? Hence, there are chances that Laylat ul Qadr could fall on the even numbered days 22,24,26,28 or 30 as well. So it is best to indulge in prayers during the last 10 days of Ramadan.

May Allah give us the strength to stand for prayers, supplicate and seek Tawba on this night. InshaAllah, we will be rewarded with the best and our Halal wishes are granted. Aameen!

Modesty In Style


Okay, here comes another Fashion related post from me. But you all know I am not a fashion frenzy blogger. I do it now and then, as I sit and relax. There are literally innumerable fashion bloggers in every nook and corner of the city. But there are only few Hijabi fashion bloggers in India who focus on Modest Outfits. Modest outfit doesn’t mean boring clothes or the old fashioned burqa, but then it can be accentuated and stylized like any other outfits. Generally speaking, Modest Fashion refers to looking stylish while relatively covered.

That being said, I agree I do not have the high end fashion knowledge but I do have some dressing sense to suit me. I am tall. Sometimes when my diet take a toll, I end up looking big, you know the tall and the fat ones. My personality is a bit of this and a tad of that. Delicate as well as a clumsy type. I am not ‘into’ fashion related scenarios but for every women, looking good is that one thing that comes naturally. After all, fashion is being able to mix and match different colors and patterns and pull it off together. All we need is some style.

If you think Modest Fashion is only for Muslims, well, then it's time to change your idea. Modesty in fashion means covering your body appropriately. Simple as that. Anybody can dress modestly whether they are Muslim or not, female or male. It is just a dress code. Being modest, to me, does not mean it has to compromise our sense of style. In my opinion, modest wear can be as simple as a maxi skirt, loose pants, a kurta & a scarf. Even a Salwar Kameez with nicely draped dupatta is modest. You agree with that, right?

Fashion evolves every day. It changes and progresses every minute. I’d say, fashion is neither the truth nor the fact but they are somebody’s opinion. And the perspective changes from one another. I am pretty conscious on how I cover myself. Especially, with the length of my dresses and the fitting of my garment. I prefer my own trend and identity but within the conservative parameters of my faith.

Big or small, slim or fat, fair or dark, there is no difference. Fashion belongs to everyone. It is the style that matters. In recent times, Hijabs and Maxi dresses are trending in the fashion runway. With my wardrobe full of scarves, Abayas and Jilbabs, the floral maxi dress and that denim shirt and the salwar kameez and sarees, I decide to take a dip in the Modest Fashion Blogging, and show some of my simple, comfortable and everyday styles.


To me, modesty in actions and behavior are equally important, as Allah says.

O children of Adam, we have provided you with garments to cover your bodies, as well as for luxury. But the best garment is the garment of righteousness. These are some of God's signs, that they may take heed. (Quran - 7:26)

Being a Hijabi, I am trying to keep a balance between modesty and style. For sometime now, I have been pondering about sharing with you all on how I approach the whole dressing idea - modestly and with individuality.

Two third of the Ramadan has passed and we are already awaiting Eid. Along with fasting and prayers, there is so much plans ahead, and my first outfit post coming up soon…

Wassalam!
