Poor Dhikr T-Shirt Imitation

I was sent this mobile phone picture of a t-shirt hanging in ZamZam (Green Street, London) - a poor imitation of the original and popular Dhikr T-Shirt by Visual Dhikr below:

I don't know who did it, but I must say it is a very bad rendition.

You decide...

(Thanks to Bro. Ali)

That’s really poor. I could have done it better left handed with my eyes closed.

They say imitation is a form of flattered.

However that is a very poor rendition of your design Ruh. Not very flattering I'm afraid.

I have a good mind to pop round there and give them a collective clip around the ear for getting it wrong so monumentally!

Tell you what I was gonna go round there to buy myself some stuff. I'll go there wearing the original and then set your Bhabi on them. That'll teach 'em! :P

Salaam. Sorry to be critical, but if a brother wears your shirt as pictured on the model, then when he does his salat there is a chance that more will be shown in sujud than is allowable by the Sacred Law. A longer shirt would be better.

If people fear that they may expose their back in sujud, then it is best that they buy a size larger - same goes for Jilbabs or any clothing. The picture shows somebody wearing a fitted size, it does not mean everyone has to wear it in such a manner. I know women who buy jilbabs one size bigger than their 'fit' size to be on the safe side.

I agree with Jameel on this, it makes sense to buy what is suitable for ones modesty.

We will also introduce larger sizes to accomodate the growing international buyers.

Though annoying - it is to be expected bro.

It kinda comes with the territory - as someone said - imitation can be a form of flattery - or just plain old pestilence.

Either way - we know which one is the real deal and sure many others do too.

Just an update - I went to ZamZam yesterday. The t-shirt wasn't on show, its a pity because I wore my original and wanted to take a picture next to it. Oh well!

My original intention was to go to ZamZam and buy a daffa. Everything seems to be more expensive in this place and the whole place is so disorganised and chaotic. In any case I found the item I was looking for in a shop 2 doors away for much less. Unlike ZamZam this place allows you to pay using your card.

Ramadan Kareem, brother.

Oh, that IS terrible. A terrible copy indeed. I hope your copy-cat woes will soon come to an end. Obvious, this form of imitation is not a complement.

Salaams Brother and Ramadan Kareem.

Its a sad state of affairs. First the painting and now the t-shirt. People have no respect for the artist or the artist's creativity.
As Izzy Mo said, this form of imitation is no complement!
