Noor Saadeh is the co-founder and co-creator of Noorart. Formerly, she held a prestigious position as a classical musician, performing at the height of the classical music scene in New York and abroad. After becoming Muslim, she channeled her energies and talent toward working with children in Islamic schools throughout the US. She put her artistic background to good use, lively narrating Qur'anic stories and Islamizing popular children's songs in adddition to writing her own. Noor's professional abilities coupled with her enthusiasm and sincerity for Islam quickly captured the hearts of Muslim children.
Noor and her husband, co-founder Ammar Saadeh, discovered a lack of quality products to educate and entertain Muslim children and they begain producing series of audio products featuring Noor's work. Their commitment to developing the love, pride, and understanding of Islam through art and media inspired the creation of Noorart, Inc in 1997 (initially Al Noor for Islamic Arts).
The company’s first project was the timeless classic audio series, “We Are Muslims" followed by "Qur'an for Little Muslims" series and "We Love Muhammad", including their first animated DVD of the Prophet's life (s). The couple branched out futher by producing Muslim toys, introducing Razanne, the Muslim Doll (an Islamic alternative to the Barbie Fashion doll). In addition they have continued to offer an increasingly large selection of Islamic media for children. Today, Noorart is a thriving company, which has continued to grow and expand over the past ten years.
