Ramadan, the annual Islamic holy month of fasting, began last week. At the end of the month, is a three-day event called Eid, Arabic for festival or feast. The festival brings Muslim families together to enjoy each other's company and celebrate. Many Muslims give gifts or money to their loved ones during this time. However, finding halal, permissible gifts or Islamic items in stores and online has been a difficult task, especially for those living in non-Muslim countries.

Last year, Ponn Sabra, of American Muslim Mom, decided to fill this void with the Online Eid Gift Guide ( - an annual gift guide offering a one stop halal shopping website for Islamic gifts.

Advertisers featured in the guide have a thumbnail image of their product that links to the site where the item can be purchased. Sabra who is Muslim, personally approved each of the listings to assure they are halal permissible products. She reviews all images to be sure they are kid-friendly and so parents can know it's safe for their children to spend their 'adiya, Eid money to shop online.

"I wanted to showcase halal products that are not readily available at mainstream stores," says Sabra. She uses many of the products (like the Muslim doll "Little Ponn" that was named after her) with her own family. The site has already been successful in women's jackets online connecting Muslims and advertisers. Mohammed Aaser of states, "Noor Kids partnered with last year, and we have chosen to renew for this year. has helped us improve our SEO search results and has also helped us increase sales during Ramadan! We strongly encourage the partnership!"

Featured in the guide are Islamic gifts for:

    Children - Toys, games, books, Islamic clothing, Turkish scarves and socks,
    Women - Islamic clothing, natural skincare products, Allah pendants
    Men - Islamic attire, portable bidet, digital Qur'an reading pen, iPhone app,
    The home - Eid decorations, art pieces, digital adhan clocks, and
    Friends and family overseas - Greeting cards, Eid candy wrappers, Islamic stationary.

With their shopping lists covered, Muslims will be free to focus their attention on worship during the holy month of Ramadan while being more than satisfied with the Islamic gifts they have purchased through the online Eid Gift Guide.

Note to Potential Advertisers
The online Eid Gift Guide is intended to offer economical advertising options to Muslim and Muslim-friendly entrepreneurs and small businesses during [Islamic] festivals. Advertisers are still being accepted through Eid al-Adha, the second festival in the Islamic year for Muslims (this year, it will fall in November). Ads will remain on the site year round, so the halal shopping need not be limited to just the times of Eid.
