    Our goal at Riwaya is incredibly simple:

    1) Supporting / Empowering independent Muslim brands and businesses with all the tools needed to take their brand to the next level

    2) Making it easier for Muslims globally to find and get their items that fit their ethical and religious values

    3) Every purchase goes towards supporting our local and international community through our monthly charity initiatives

    Although we are a premium marketplace, we want to make it accessible as possible for buyers and sellers to come onboard!
