We didn't win ☺️ but it was still an immense honour to be a finalist for an award presented by the First Minister of Wales—recognising the highest achievements in the country.
My Salah Mat was proudly nominated in the Innovation, Technology, and Science category, reflecting the groundbreaking nature of our Interactive Prayer Mat, for which we have been granted a patent.
Being a part of such a prestigious event was a true privilege, i was able to be in the company of numerous remarkable individuals who have been making incredible contributions to the communities of Wales and beyond. The positive impact of their work can be seen in various aspects of society, including local communities, the environment, and other broader areas.
I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to First Minister Mark Drakeford and his outstanding team for organising and hosting such a delightful evening. The event was thoroughly enjoyable, and I am particularly grateful for the memorable moment of taking a selfie with the First Minister himself! 😄.
It was an unforgettable experience that truly highlighted the importance of innovation and dedication in making a difference to our communities and society.
My Salah Mat would not be where it is without the support of so many people, my utmost thanks gratitude to Fatiha Ali Alexander Fell youseif Mohamed khameis Mahinar Galal Alassim Mohamed Dr Wendy A Booth to name a few, who have helped raise the profile of My Salah Mat.
My faith is the reason behind this invention and for that I thank Allah (swt) has continues to bless me and my ideas.
Congratulations to all the amazing winners and finalists.
