This sponsored post came at a great time because I was buying the shahaada cuff for my mother-in-law who has been Muslim for 30 years now alhamdulillah 🙂
Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Give gifts and you will love one another.” 
We don’t celebrate birthdays or anniversaries etc. So when the special occasions in life come up, we go out of our way to give gifts 😀 and oh boi the anticipation of Eid just doubles up along the way. Unlike Eid, there are some occasions that only come once in a lifetime. So make them special with crscntmoon – a business started by Ali and Bismah, who like to craft designer watches and accessories inspired by the whimsical beauty of the Far and Mid East.
Following is a list of gift-giving occasions you can explore:
1) Revert Gift
As a daughter in law to a revert mother in law, I know how lonely a journey to Islam can be – when none of your family members are Muslim and you lose your friends along the way too…
Some leave Islam after all the hardships, some stick through…
The level of support that they get in the start leaves a great impact on their journey towards Islam.
Alhamdulillah my mother in law (after 30+ years of being a Muslim) still stands strong on her faith. So I got this as a gift for her perseverance and dedication through all these years (even though none of her family members are Muslim and she visits them often).
She absolutely loved it and have been wearing it ever since. It looked way more beautiful than it looked in the image. And the quality surpassed my expectations as well.
If you know someone who embraces Islam, give them a gift of shahaadah! Something as a reminder of their strong identity and the fitra all of us are born with! Something to help them keep going even when the world seems to turn away.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself.” 
Be it graduation from a university (after all those nights of dua for exams) or completion of memorization of the Qur’an. Whether you want to encourage someone when they start the hijab or you’d like to congratulate them on their new home. Whether someone came back from umrah or they are going for hajj.
Anything that you’d like to congratulate the other person for – something that they may have achieved after a lot of hardships and efforts and your encouragement would help them keep going. These bismillah and alhamdulillah cuffs fit the idea of saying Alhamdulillah for completion of one phase of life and Bismillah for the new chapter of life ahead.
3) Wedding Gift
When the Prophet (ﷺ) congratulated a man on his marriage, he said: May Allah bless for you, and may He bless on you, and combine both of you in good (works). [Abu Dawud]بَارَكَ اللَّهُ لَكَ وَبَارَكَ عَلَيْكَ وَجَمَعَ بَيْنَكُمَا فِي خَيْرٍ
This is a gift for those who have the love for culture, history, and roots.
Everyone loves watches as gifts on wedding. I remember gifting my cousin a him-and-her watch set on her wedding and it was so difficult to find a right match. Where both watches looked kind of similar, but also different. I wish I knew crscntmoon back then and it would have made my job easier.
I wish someone gifted me a sabr cuff when I gave birth to my first daughter 😅
A cuff I could look towards and remind myself to be patient every time I was stretched thin like a bubble gum that was about to burst. When the baby arrives, the mother deserves a gift instead of the baby 😅
Allah says in the Qur’an (94:5-6):For indeed, with hardship ease. Indeed, with hardship ease.
And indeed parenthood is the exact definition of this verse day in and day out. May we always remember the ease in the times of hardship.
It’s certainly that time of the year where you not only want to gift others, but also support Muslim businesses – especially those who give back.
CrscntMoon donates to Islamic Relief with each of your purchase. So you can buy something for yourself or/and for others, while giving charity as well.
Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha is that time of the year where you have to search the depths of internet to find something special for someone special. I mean what do you even gift someone who has everything? I’m always in this situation so I’m always on the internet searching for something different, something meaningful, something precious, something beautiful.
Just so you won’t have to search the internet or spend time on Pinterest on the night before Eid 😅 here’s a free printable bundle of Islamic cards for you.
