Our Story

Light of Sakina is a Dubai based luxury scent company with sustainability, spirituality & giving back at the essence of its soul.

After traveling to Najaf in 2018, where Naila visited widows & orphans in impoverished areas, she realized it was important to empower these women financially, as much as she can. Along with her assistant Sheila, both embarked on a candle making journey, teaching widows how to make candles over the internet and selling candles in Najaf and in Dubai. 

Once the candles had begun to sell out, the non-profit was transformed into a for-profit as Naila realized she could empower women further if the business was fully capitalized.

A passion for authentic and soulful scents led to the development of beautiful candles, with a focus on Middle Eastern Oud, Amberwood & Frankincense aromas.

 At the heart of the business resides the intention of creating beautiful products which uplift spirits, protect the earth and help those in need.

Today Light of Sakina candles illuminates and touches numerous souls, all around the world with flagship stores in the UAE and a presence in Canada, US & Africa.


My wish for you is to live a life of peace, purpose & meaning.

Being part of a business which gives back to communities, is in harmony with the planet and uplifts other beings through the incredible & olfactory experience of scent brings me tremendous peace.

Thanking Allah ( swt ) for the tremendous blessing. 

Hoping our candles inspire you to start your own personal heart journey  today.

Do keep me posted !
