I was walking through the bazaar and out of nowhere I saw this booth:
Then I saw some familiar faces that I haven’t seen in a while. One of the brothers came out of nowhere and had this big smile and wide open eyes. We greeted each other and began talking about how we haven’t seen each other in a long time.
To make a long story short, my former local masjid when I use to live in NY use to bring huffadh (those who memorize the entire Qur’an) from the a Darul Uloom school in the UK. One Ramadan these two brothers came and I spent my entire Ramadan with them almost every night and weekend. They came again for another Ramadan and we became good friends. Now fast foward to ISNA 2009, i came to discover they have their own successful, mashaAllah, Islamic clothing company. Now most clothing companies that make Islamic clothing aren’t really professional like Macy’s or Sears, but these brothers were on top of their game.
The thoubs are off the hook, mashaAllah! It has been something I have been waiting for a long time. These brothers are extremely professional about their presnetation and sale even the bag it comes in was amazing. One brother told me he just wanted the bag. It was that good. I interviewed one of the brothers at the Lawung booth.
Interview with Bro Uzair of Lawung:
Alhamdulillah I have talked to the brothers and inshaAllah I am in the process of becoming an agent in America for distributing Lawung products. So if you like what you see and what to purchase some products, let me know inshaAllah. Make a comment with your email address and I’ll contact you.
