Gift-giving occasions are an opportunity to demonstrate to someone how much you care. When you give a gift to a Muslim woman, you have the opportunity to present her with something meaningful. Whether she is your mother, wife, girlfriend or close friend, there are many suitable gifts to mark any occasion. With some research and consideration, it's easy to choose a gift which is pleasing to the Muslim woman in your life.
Hijab Head Covering
While a Muslim woman likely has a variety of hijabs already, the hijab she receives as a gift will have more meaning. Buy one in her favourite colour, one to match her eyes or one in a colour you think looks particularly good on her. Focus on top quality, and don't skimp on this item. She will appreciate the value and thought behind this personal gift.
Trip to the Taj Mahal
A great gift to a wife from her husband, a trip to the Taj Mahal screams romance. Built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a monument to the memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal is known as one of the most romantic locations in the world. A trip to the Taj Mahal is especially appropriate for a honeymoon or a significant wedding anniversary.
English Language Lessons
If the Muslim woman in your life does not speak English, and you live in an area where English is spoken predominantly, consider English language lessons. Not only will this ease her daily life and allow her to take on more responsibility in the family, it will make her feel more involved and less isolated. If she already speaks English, consider lessons in another language she has an interest in. Perhaps she dreams of a trip abroad some day. Lessons in the language spoken in the country she longs to visit will make her feel closer to her ultimate vacation and prepare her to communicate when the time comes.
Trip to Mecca
If you have the means and ability, a pilgrimage to Mecca is a gift she'll cherish. This holiest of holy places in the Islamic religion will delight and thrill her, particularly if she has never been. Include a side trip to Medina, Saudi Arabia, the second most important location to Muslims the world over.
Perfumed Holy Koran
While she most likely has a copy of the Koran already, does she have a scented one? Copies with a floral scent embedded in the pages of the Koran are an option. Designed so she will experience the scent every time she opens this holy book, the perfume is guaranteed to be long lasting.
