QuadM is a market in Sunny Southern California meant to

support Muslim women (owned, supported or affiliated) businesses that are catered to the Muslim community! It is a Collection of the Perfect Muslim Lifestyle Products and Services.

 

Through our last event with over 500 attendees, we've realized just how incredibly talented our community is and we just scratched the surface.  We plan on organizing an event that promotes positivity, creativity, and support!  If you feel this is right for you, please go ahead and read more information on QuadM and sign up below,

bi ithn Allah (with Allah's permission). 

We are so thrilled to be providing an opportunity for Muslim women to share their creative products and services and provide a one-stop shopping experience for women in our community!

  

All products and services are welcome; hand made, home made, hand selected or curated by you. 

 

We believe in community, not competition, and we encourage every shop who wants to be a part of our mission to say Bismillah and join us! Our goal is to support and build all Muslim women.
