I get my jubbas from Saudi, they got the best range there (well duh)

But sometimes I get some clothes from Zamzam in East London, Green street.

But usually from Tooting as well, a shop called Lebas and some other ones

errmmm well i sat there with my sis makin it.........n then bro fi_sabillilah animated it for me.........u could request one from bro Ahmed in the request a sig thread........inshallah he'll make one way better........

back on topic it doesnt matter where one shops and buying things from saudi is nothing more special then buying the same garment from london(or asda for bro Aamir;D ) thats been transported over.......so lets hope we are not priding over where we shop compared to others and remember the purpose of the clothes is to conceal our body......no other reason.......
