sil·sil·a: n., a connection, a chain of transmission from generations past, where artform is passed from master to student
At Silsila, we hope to share products that are far more than just pieces of art: they are pieces of heart. They are the products of souls filled with recognition of and devotion to Allah and His Messenger ﷺ.
We believe the more chances to invoke the remembrance of Allah in our spaces, the more baraka we will attract into our lives. We are obsessed with the idea of keeping beautiful Islamic traditions alive. For this reason, we take from age old Islamic traditions and artwork, and strive to make them more accessible.
We also hope to showcase the work of artisans who attach themselves to a silsila, learning the artistic techniques that have been passed on for generations from master to apprentice.
We first launched with our nikahnamas in 2018 and are proud to have revived the tradition as the world's first nikahnama site, providing thousands of marriage contracts over the years. In collaboration with artists in Pakistan, Turkey and the United States, we aim to honor the artistic legacies of our grand Muslim forebears through each and every one of our pieces.
