In the Holy Quran, Allah says:
What Zarabeey means? “And carpets tastefully spread around.” (88:16). Zarabeey literally means carpets. Here, Allah (Mighty and Majestic) mentions the beauty of the promised Jannah (Paradise) to the believers. He created and knows human nature, and the delight and comfort we will find when seated on such carpets and beautifying our homes with them. A believer who strives to please the Creator throughout life would expect the best of rewards. And the Qur'anic mention of carpets indicates the significance of their presence and their effect. If they were not important, would they be mentioned in the Qur'an?
Hand knotting as an art : Hand-knotting of woolen carpets is a skill that runs through generations, its techniques transmitted by expert artisans. Traditional patterns of vivid colors and easily recognizable forms attract considerable demand around the globe. Zarabeey prayer rugs reflect a synthesis between fresh artistry and trusted tradition.
Our team includes masters in this field who have been weaving, washing and producing for more than four decades. We do not mass produce our goods. They are not subjected to the pressures of commercialization, either. Our values stem from mastery of the art of hand-knotting, and the production of items that are unique and of surpassing quality. Professional excellence is a thread that has been handed down to us by our ancestors. Their experience and export acumen are the invaluable assets which have contributed to making Zarabeey an exceptional contemporary brand.
From The Blog
“I have a green prayer carpet with a prophetic sandal design. The colors and design are beautiful and very soothing to look at, it has a feeling of peace. The thick pile makes it comfortable even on a tiled floor and the larger than normal size for a prayer mat gives it a grand feel. It's not just a pretty and comfortable rug, it is nice to know that Muslim brethren have hand crafted it and one is contributing towards their work. It is the nicest prayer carpet I have ever prayed on, in fact after praying on it it is hard to pray on anything else!”
