At the heart of it. Iman aspires to be so much more than a jewellery brand. It is a business born out of a deep desire to share the love and inspiration we have of our deen and history far and wide. 

With this in mind we want to stay close and connect to our community and to promote other businesses, creatives and amazing people doing extraordinary things.

From really good reads to the best barista's in town from great new eating spots to exciting up-coming events! We will share with you things and people that inspire us and hopefully inspire you too!

So make sure you don't miss out on our quarterly "list" with info on what's new and happening in and around our beautiful South African cities. There's so much to do, create and discover and we really do want to share it with you! Please email us if you have any amazing friends/family or tips that we can share in future lists.

The first word recited by the prophet PBUH was “Iqra” and knowledge acquisition and curiosity is encouraged throughout our deen both in the Quran and in Hadeeth. 

This week the book I wanted to really highlight is a book I am currently reading. The Quranic Prescription by Madiha M Saeed. This is an incredible insightful book about health. The human body is SO amazing subhanallah and this book shows just how much we are taught about health and food in our tradition. it really is a good read and a great book to refer to.

On the topic of health and wellness from Madiha's book above, we've recently heard a lot of hype about a Jozi company called Authentic Food Studio. Not only do they cater for events and so beautifully as well, but they offer an incredible weekly menu. Things like protein bowls, smoked salmon bagels and Morrocan chickpea curry, not to mention their cold press juices and shots! Sounds super YUMMY!

I have had the privilege of getting to know the owner of this “boutique” leather handbag brand, a fellow female Muslim entrepreneur! Wardia Essop, as stylish as she is lovely. After admiring her bags for a few weeks.

I recently bought my first Rose May piece. All I can say is you have to see them to understand why this brand is going places. The shapes, colours and options are well considered and beautifully finished with an incredible eye for detail. There is definitely something for everyone in her range.
