Sterling Silver and Hand Engraved Aqeeq Alhamdulillah Necklace
Simple delicate necklace features a natural aqeeq accented with a fresh water pearl. Versatile 28 inch length is perfect for layering.
Aqeeq (agate) is a stone favored by the Prophet according to some traditions, and therefore has spiritual significance for Muslims. The pendant is hand engraved with Alhamdulillah, a commonly used Arabic expression of thankfulness. While it is an expression of thanks, it also serves as a reminder that all accomplishments are considered by Muslims to be achieved through the will of Allah (God). Islamic calligraphy or "Khatt Islami" is a major form of artistic expression in Muslim cultures, dating back to the 7th century.
Each piece is individually hand engraved following centuries old jewelry making traditions. Slight differences are imperfections are a hallmark of the individuality of this product and no two pieces will be exactly alike.
