The Odyssey of a Spiritual Innovation

The inspiration behind our association came from recognizing the daily struggles of those afflicted with conditions such as Alzheimer’s, OCD, or ADHD. For them, performing prayer, a crucial aspect of their faith, becomes a challenge. These individuals, fervent in their desire for spiritual connection, face barriers in their religious practice.

We witnessed the pain and frustration of not being able to pray normally, the silent suffering experienced every day. This spurred us to envision a solution, an aid that could make prayer accessible and serene for everyone, regardless of their health challenges. It was with this vision in mind that our association was born.

Our journey, rich in challenges and achievements, is not just ours alone. It is a tapestry woven from each contribution, each supportive gesture, and every heart sharing our vision. Today, we invite you to become a living part of this story that continues to unfold.

How did you establish partnerships with persecuted communities?

Our partnerships with persecuted communities in Myanmar were born from a mutual desire to support and value local artisans. We actively sought out workshops that share our values of ethics. These collaborations allow us not only to produce superior quality rugs but also to positively contribute to these communities.

What were the main challenges faced during the development of the prototype?

The development of the prototype was a journey full of hurdles, especially in integrating technology into a traditional rug while preserving its practical and aesthetic aspect. We had to overcome technical challenges, such as choosing suitable materials and setting up a reliable and discreet rakah counting system.

What lessons did you learn from the initial phases of rug distribution?

The initial phases of distribution taught us the importance of listening and flexibility. We learned that each community has specific needs and that constant adaptation is key. This helped us refine our distribution approach and better target the end-users’ needs.

What was the contribution of imams and users during the testing of the prototype?

The contribution of imams and users was crucial in improving our prayer rug. Their feedback helped us adjust the sensitivity of the sensors, improve ergonomics, and make the display more readable. Their suggestions allowed us to refine our design to better meet the actual needs of users.

Were there any significant improvements made to the rug following the initial feedback?

Following initial feedback, we made several significant improvements, including adjusting the sensitivity of the sensors, enhancing the padding for increased comfort, and optimizing the display for better visibility. These adjustments made the rug even more suited and enjoyable to use.
