A bit about us

It’s a huge market too – Muslims make up around 25% of the global population – from Africa, Asia, Europe to the Middle East. We’re breaking our traffic records every month and we have a big mission ahead of us. We recently got investment from some of the world’s leading investors who share our vision that we’re on to something really worth doing.
