Meaning of DEEN:
Deen is an Arabic word with three general senses: judgment, custom, and religion. It is used by both Arab Muslims and Christians. In Islam, the word refers to the way of life Muslims must adopt to comply with divine law, encompassing beliefs, character and deeds.
Meaning of DUNYA:
Dunyā is a word in Arabic which means the temporary world—and its earthly concerns and possessions—as opposed to the eternal spiritual realm, or the hereafter. Dunyā literally means ‘closer’ or ‘lower’
It all started in 2013 when the term Deen over Dunya became a popular slogan and meme amongst Muslims striving to better themselves in their Deen (Faith) whilst refraining for temporary worldly desires (Dunya) which are prohibited in Islam. Such as, consuming Haram food, backbiting, slander, ill treatment, lying, cheating and so on. In this day and age it is very difficult to avoid these things.
Faith is what makes us better Muslims and part of our faith is to be the best to our Muslim brothers and sister, Friends, family, neighbours, and non-Muslims! Islam teaches us to respect people from all faiths. This is why we welcome people from all faiths, religions and cultures into our store.
