As millennial Muslims in the West, we’ve often found ourselves caught between modernity and tradition. Striking the balance between maintaining our Islamic values and embracing contemporary aesthetics can be a delicate task, especially when it comes to decorating our living spaces. And that’s where Zane & Noora, a brand that harmoniously fuses Arabic and modern Islamic Art, comes in. Inspired by the Arabic words for ‘beauty’ (Zane) and ‘light’ (Noora), the brand aims to enrich our everyday lives with art that resonates with the heart and soul.

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing two of their products: the Vibrant Allah Desk Ornament and the Vibrant Alhamdulillah. Both pieces carry the unique blend of tradition and modernity that Zane & Noora embodies, and I was truly taken aback by their quality and craftsmanship.

The Vibrant Allah Desk Ornament, serves as a constant reminder of what is most important in life. The minimalist design is clean, elegant, and visually stunning, making it a perfect addition to any workspace or living space. I placed this piece on my desk, and it immediately changed the ambience of my workspace. Every time my eyes catch a glimpse of the stand, I find myself reminded of the divine, subtly encouraging a connection to Allah amidst the daily grind.

On the other hand, the Vibrant Alhamdulillah piece, crafted in Kufi-style and available in solid white oak, is a beautiful reminder to express gratitude to Allah. The piece found its place on my shelf, blending seamlessly with my office’s minimalist aesthetic. Despite its subtlety, the piece holds a commanding presence – a testament to the power of its message and the finesse of its design.

Both pieces are hand-made in the brand’s Southern California studio, instilling a sense of deep authenticity in each product. The products are made locally in America, which is a refreshing departure from the outsourced production often seen in the market. The attention to detail is palpable, and you can feel the care that went into creating each piece.

I had the chance to speak with Abdel Ibrahim, the founder of Zane and Noora, which added another layer of admiration for the brand. The brand, named after Abdel’s two children, embodies not only the harmonious blend of beauty and light but also a parent’s love and dedication. This personal touch, combined with the handcrafted nature of the products, truly sets Zane & Noora apart from other brands in the Islamic art market.

In conclusion, Zane & Noora offers a captivating experience of modern Islamic art, where tradition and contemporary design meet to create enchanting aesthetics. It’s a brand that understands its audience – the millennial Muslim seeking to marry tradition with modernity. The Solid Wood Allah Stand and the Solid Wood Alhamdulillah are more than just decor pieces; they are symbolic expressions of faith, crafted with care, and imbued with profound meaning.

I am genuinely pleased with both products, and I look forward to incorporating more pieces from Zane & Noora into my home. The brand’s commitment to quality, aesthetics, and authenticity is truly commendable, and I wholeheartedly recommend Zane & Noora to anyone looking to add a touch of modern Islamic art to their space.
