At Zoya, we're building software that helps the nearly two billion Muslims of the world align their faith with their finances. Our mission is to enable Muslims to take control of their financial future and to return Islamic finance to its true purpose.
Truth is, we're building Zoya to scratch our own itch. Every one of us is an investor, which means we have first-hand experience of the challenges in aligning our faith with our finances. We're deeply committed to solving that, and more.
