Introducing AmaniArt – Islamic Art Giveaway

I first came across AmaniArt on another blogger, Abieda’s Instagram account. She had name prints made for her twin girls and I just fell in love.

I had to have one for The Munchkin with the meaning of his name, date of birth (both western and Islamic dates) and I also had one made for a brand new baby in the family.


The more I stalked the AmaniArt Instagram account, the more I wanted. Gone where the days of boring black and gold rakams. I love beautiful design and typography and so I had to stop myself from buying ALL THE THINGS! But I did get an English translation of Surah An-Nas, a blogger mug and I’ve ordered an Ayatul Kursi print because ALL THE THINGS!



So here’s a little more on Khadeeja and her amazing artwork.

1. When did you start AmaniArt?

AmaniArt was started in July 2015. It was an idea I had while driving with my mom and husband and blurted out what would essentially become AmaniArt. After chatting to them I went home and designed a few pieces and immediately posted it on Instagram to see what people’s reaction was.

2. Tell us a little about yourself?

Never been a fan of chatting about myself 🙂 I’m a 29 year old photographer from Cape Town with a huge love for typography, fashion and make up. I love being with family and meeting new people. I studied Psychology for four years before dropping out of UCT to follow my dream of being a photographer. For four years I ran my own business in Paarl with my mom and when we decided to close (after my father passed away). I struggled to figure out what I would do for the rest of my life. AmaniArt was supposed to be something I could do in my spare time but Alhamdulillah it has grown into something that I could never have imagined. It is now my full time job and I love every single aspect of it. 

3. What is the inspiration behind the name, AmaniArt?

When I decided to start this little venture I wanted a name that best represented how I felt about it. I knew it had to be an Arabic name so I began the search. Amani in Arabic means hopes, wishes and aspirations and that is exactly what I wanted to do with my pieces. I hope, wish and aspire to bring the joy of Islam and the Quran into peoples homes.

4. Why did you start this business?

I started AmaniArt because of my love for typography. I’ve always had a love for graphic design and decided to give it a try. I wanted to also show people that Islamic art didn’t have to “boring” it could be modern and refreshing.
The other reason was because every Muslim reads verses from the Quran every single day but do we really understand what we are reading? Having a piece in the simplest form of English makes it so much more beautiful because we can truly understand it.

5. What kind of products do you sell?

My products include art prints, canvas, cute Islamic mugs, Islamic greeting cards and scatter cushions

6. What upcoming products to do have that we can look forward to?

As of next week we are launching our new notebook range and Ramadaan and Eid gifts.

    My absolute favourite product is the night time and morning duahs for kids (about to order two more sets) because they make amazing gifts for Muslim Moms-to-be!
    The bridal couple names and duah are also amazing gifts for couples getting married. Really love the whole range of products!

    Literally as I was talking about Amaniart at work I came across this post ha-ha. Keeping up with trends in an Islamic way in products is absolutely beautiful. I love all the products, especially the wall pieces and as of late I must say the quirky notebooks and journals has been a favourite of mine too. (But honestly I love them all ha-ha)

    Love all the products and cant wait to get my hands on the amazing framed art 🙂 When i accepted Islam I had to decide on a name and chose Amani for the amazing meaning and promise it holds. May both your ventures be a success IA. @anni_mohamed

    ok i’m scrolling as @fatinsta_gram and thinking how can I choose my favourite O_O then I saw the mug ‘All I need is a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of duahs’ and the sehri and iftaar mugs ^_^ ‘my book of duahs’ is also cute and ‘Recipes starts with Bismillah’ and smile its a sunnah with the camera on the mug…ok i think I should stop scrolling and stick to my first choice :/

    I love her notebooks! It reminds me of typo. AmaniArt is basically the ‘halaal’ typo.

    I’ve been stalking AmaniArt for months!! I just want to say that it is extremely difficult to find modern Islamic prints and decor that can be incorporated into our homes, so Khadeeja is checking all the right boxes.

    I adore her prints of the duas for before sleeping and after waking up, for kids bedrooms. Her mugs have been on my shopping list for a very long time too.

    All her things are beautiful. Masha-Allah may Allah increase your business and grant you lots of success. I love her modern rakams, scattered cushions, mugs and the notebooks, I want a Bismillah one and an In-sha-Allah one. When I have a baby one day I want a frame like in this post its beautiful.

    As a writer, my favourite product is the notebooks 🙂 The covers are enough to inspire anyone to put pen to paper.

    I absolutely love all AmaniArt products – very funky, modern and relevant to a Muslim’s life as well. The notebooks I love as well as the beautifully designed rakams that I need to highlight. I already picture how I would want these rakams in my house and for my kids one day Insha Allah.

    My absolute favourite item are the personalised mugs with your name on in English and Arabic and her notebooks are gorgeous. May AmaniArt grown from strength to strength, Inshallah.

    @faz_harris_davids – I have been following Amani Art recently and I can’t pick one thing as the art in itself is just so breathtaking. The canvases are definitely my favourite though, however, one cannot deny the unbelievable talent.

    I looove all the AmaniArt products that ive now seen but I especially love the notebooks that will be lauunched. I think having an islamic verse or quote on something that I will use everyday will give me that extra bit of calmness and scerenity at work that I need.

    I love her colourful framed pieces and the meaning of the name piece. Even if i dont win i definitely need to have my 2 boys names printed with their meanings by her.

    Fingers crossed!

    I like all the framed surahs and verses. Actually, I love if all!

    AmaniArt is the epitomy of modernism with feet firmly grounded in the traditional, something Capetonian muslims pride themselves on, wanting to be on trend but still understanding the value of tradition and history.
    I simply love the versions of Ayatul Kursi – english and arabic but every single surah canvas is stunning, perhaps its because it is the word of our creator?
