Mypraisebeads was set up as a home-schooling venture. We'd always toyed with the idea of a small business for the kids, a hands on way of teaching them. But we had no idea what that venture might be!
Then, whilst I was looking for an Eid gift for my husband, I knew exactly what I wanted to buy, a Lapis Lazuli tasbih. Not just any tasbih, but something that looked great. Something that would make him say, wow! But I couldn't find anything that was actually a reasonable price.
And that's where it started. We bought some beads with the intention of making gifts, made them and discovered a whole new creative outlet! The kids are involved in every aspect, from purchasing stock right through to sales. Alhamdulillah!
We hope our praisebeads bring you and your loved ones joy and reward.
MEET THE TEAM
Hammaad - I am 14 years old and I have a few parts to play in this business. I tie the knots you see at the end of our tasbihs, do the photography, and I've created the website you're on now.
Safiyya - I’m 12 years old, and I’m proud to be part of the mypraisebeads team! I make some of the tasbihs, help choose the beads we buy, create content for social media posts/stories, and communicate with our lovely Arabic - speaking customers.
Saara - I am 9 years old. I make some of the tasbihs and love designing new ones - thinking up colour combinations is quite relaxing!
Yousuf - I am 5. I help make the bracelets, pick the beads up from the floor, and I love untangling string because it's like doing a puzzle!
