“As an Entrepreneur that verse in the Quran should be your friend…” – Ebrahim Vahed
Today we chat to the Founder of Binaye Industries – smart and fascinating young Entrepreneur.
“Bee – neigh” or “Bee – ney”
“The word Binaye is derived from the Arabic word Binaa’u/Banaa’, which means “to build” or “build”.
Our concept is simple: We take a few verses from the Qur’aan and tell a story around them with our two characters Dahlia and Ali. At some point in the story, Dahlia and Ali (and your child) have to build something that’s related to the story (and thus the verse from the Qur’aan).
This involves the child in the story. Physically involving kids in the story ensures that the message from the Qur’aan has a lasting impact on their lives.
The toy pieces are designed to be chunky, rugged and can withstand a fair amount of abuse. As such, the friction fit (when connecting pieces together), may be slightly tight. This will certainly improve over time.
We want this toy to be like Lego or Meccano – in that the child will take it apart and make different things. This will foster creativity, while your child will be reminded of the lessons of the Qur’an for a long time to come. Encourage your child to get creative by making simple things.”
