Are you interested in learning more about Islam?

Our giftbox is designed for those new to Islam who are eager and keen to increase their knowledge and strengthen their faith. Included are hand-picked essentials to empower you to learn more about Islam and grow closer to God.

Here at HelloIslam, we believe that seeking knowledge should never come at a price. We are striving to create a system where our giftbox can be free-for-all. However, for the time-being, as we function on limited funding, we are only able to offer this for free for those new to Islam, whether Muslim or non-Muslim. If this sounds like you, no matter where you live in the world, please simply order your box for free below, and include a little of your story and background.

If you are not eligible, but are still eager to learn more and obtain some of the resources, or perhaps undergoing financial hardship, please complete the form, ticking any items you are particularly interested in, and tell us more about your story. We will strive to provide and help in whichever way we can.

Note: We would like to assure you that we package all our items discretely with blank packaging for your privacy, as we are aware some of those learning about Islam would not like to draw attention in front of family members and others.

Please scroll through this page for a comprehensive list of the items included in the giftbox.
