Zaid's (Caravan Saray)

A dear friend of mine recently made the Hajj, alhamdulillah, and as I looked around for a nice gift to send her, I decided to shop online given we live far apart. I landed at Zaid's, found a beautiful gift for her, and had an excellent shopping experience in the process!

So, if you're looking for a beautiful gift for someone special or you simply would like to treat yourself to something nice, Zaid's -- formerly Caravan Saray -- is an excellent first stop. It brings together some of the best, most unique Islamic products out there, together on one convenient site.

Books -- Perfume -- Clothing -- Prints -- Greeting Cards, and more!

Caravans from
Shamil, Rabia Designs, Haji Noor Deen, Irfan, Oriscent, Islamica, Siratt, and Wakeel Books...

Check it out.


  1. Wow, girl, what are you they paying you? ;-)

  2. The folks at Zaid's are awesome. I met them at the Buffalo suhba last year and they were very nice indeed. I swear I wish I had the money to buy some of the prayer beads they had. One looks at them online and thinks "why so expensive?" But when you see them in person and hold them, you iunderstand why. They have some beautiful things:-)

  3. Assalamu'alaykum wa Rahmatullah,

    Safiyyah: If I didn't know you personally, I would've commented on the capitalistic mindset of that comment... What happened to good ol' fashioned genuine praise?

    Liam: Indeed, they're very nice and the way I was treated as a customer was what impressed me even more than the *beautiful* items they have. And you're right -- UNS beads are something else altogether!

    Barak Allahu fi kum.


  4. Your check is in the mail.


    Seriously... JAK for your kind words. We are just glad to be of service! May Allah bless you for all your wonderful work!

  6. Wa'alaykum Assalam wa Rahmatullah,

    Besim: Ameen, and may He bless you as well.

    Umm Zaid: haha...why, of course it is! :)


  7. Thank you,I am also looking for a wonderful gift to gift my girl friend.




  8. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life.
