Being an export advocate for the Departmant of International Trade and working for the 'Exporting Is Great' initiative, once in a while I get invited to posh receptions. Here I am enjoying a fabulous evening at the Departmant of International Trades annual business reception held at the prestigious Lancaster House hosted by the Secretery of state, Dr Liam Fox.
Alhamdulillah with the grace of Allah (SWT), once again we have been nominated as a finalist for an award, this time by the British Muslim Awards 2019. This has taken us by complete surprise and we are very humbled and grateful to all you lovely souls who have nominated us. The winners will be announce at an awards ceremony taking place in Bradford at the end of the month and team Islamic Moments would like to wish all the finalists the very best.

As part of my role as an ambassador for the governments 'Exporting is Great' initiative, last week I had the honour of attending the International Trade Banquet at Mansion House hosted by the Lord Mayor of London Alderman Charles and Lady Mayoress Samantha Bowman. The Secretary of State for International Trade Dr Liam Fox gave a very inspiring speech on key exporting startergies UK businesses need to undretake. "Prosperity underpins social cohesion. That social cohesion underpins political stability and that political stability is the building block of our collective security" he said. The global oppurtunities that become available through free and open trade were also highlighted in his speech.
Overall a great night and a chance to network with some amazing business and like minded individuals.
I can proudly announce that we have been working behind closed doors with the Department for International Trade on a government campaign promoting British exports. In January of this year we were absolutely delighted to be selected as one of thirty UK businesses from up and down the country to represent the governments exporting initiative 'Exporting is Great'. It's been an amazing experience, one that I am so proud to be part of. From having a 10 member camera crew coming to our offices and filming us for the day, to being invited to a round table discussion with Dr Liam Fox MP and other government dignitaries. Its all been a tremendous learning curve for me and the team and we look forward to working closely with the Department for International Trade and greater exporting opportunities.

Last month saw the release of our much awaited new luxury Islamic notebooks which we've been working on tirelessly over the winter months. So much goes on behind the scenes when a new product is formulated. Getting the paper quality right to binding options, chosing the correct colour pallette to embosssing and foiling techniques, the list is endless!
Alhamdulillah we are super proud of the finished results. There are 4 designs to choose from. Bismillah, Rabbi Zidni 'Ilma, My Favourite Duas and My Goals Insha'Allah
