The Forgotten Heroes
Allah Poppy Brooch to commemorate the sacrifices of all Muslim soldiers who participated, got injured and sacrificed their lives in both World War I and II.
More than 400,000 Muslims fought in the trenches of WWI and still, their sacrifices and deaths are hardly recognised across the globe. With other comrades from the Middle East and India, this part of the world provided more soldiers for the war than most of the other regions who fought against German forces combined. Many of the Muslim soldiers were on the frontline fighting directly against Germans on the Western Front playing a critical role in strengthening the British in the war.
The name that stands out from all the other Muslim soldiers is of Khudadad Khan. He was part of the 129th Duke of Connaught’s Own Baluchi’s regiment and this heroic figure was born in the Jhelum District which is now in the Potohar area of Pakistan. Khudadad was one of the first Muslims to be awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest rank and status a soldier could earn. Khan’s regiment came directly into action in 1914 at the very beginning of the war in Belgium. The Baluchi regiment - which Khudadad Khan was in - supported the struggling British forces. The German’s heavily outnumbered the two Balochi squads and they invaded them although they fought bravely. Khan ran a machine gun unit whilst the other was destroyed by a bomb attack from the Germans. Khan’s bravery and determination delayed the German breakthrough. Outnumbered, Khan’s machine gunners were all overrun and all killed. Khan suffered several injuries and he was left for dead. Badly injured Khan was able to crawl back to his fellow soldiers under the shade of the dark night.
Unfortunately, he died that very night.
We made this Poppy Allah Brooch to commemorate the sacrifice of all Muslim soldiers who Participated, injured and sacrificed their lives in both World Wars.
The idea of making this brooch came from the fact that I asked out of curiosity to my muslim friend (Pakistan origin) that if he knows how many muslim people participated and sacrificed their lives in world wars. He’s very devoted muslim and his answer surprised me when he said may be 1000 or 4000. Then, we did research and was even shocked more to find that figures were far more than our estimation. Then, we thought there should be something that every muslim should wear to pay their tributes to these unknown heroes of the World Wars. This is our small effort to remember all these brave soldiers.
We look forward for your suggestions and advice.

Use of Brooches:
Brooches, once a mainstay of every woman’s wardrobe, now come and go for many in the same manner as other jewelry trends. It is, however, easy to make a positive case for this sophisticated piece of jewelry. It is, after all, more versatile than any other jewelry item. Brooches can be used the standard way: as an accessory to fashion. But that is by no means their only use. They can also be used on clothing accessories as well as in the hair.
Purchase one or more brooches, if they are not readily on hand.
Use the brooch on clothing. Attach a brooch to the high neckline of a blouse, dress or jacket. Use one or more brooches (in a cluster) on the lapel of a suit jacket or place one or more on the shoulder of a jacket or dress. Pin several small brooches over the buttons of a blouse or dress to liven up the clothing or show off a collection. Try using smaller pins as a substitute for cuff links on a blouse by just pinning the brooch over the cuff's button.
Hook a brooch through a “magna pin.” This converts the brooch to a magnetic closure, thereby doing away with the need to stick the pin part of the brooch into fabrics that could otherwise be damaged by the process. This makes it simple to use the brooch on heavy fabrics like boiled wool, suede or leather.
Utilize the brooch to help securely attach an accessory to clothing such as a scarf, a shawl or a shrug.
Attach a brooch to a hat to feminize it or give it a touch of pizzazz.
Pin one or more brooches onto a handbag or clutch to convert a daytime look to evening chic. Use a magna pin for heavier fabrics, suedes and leathers.
Convert a brooch to a pendant by attaching it directly to a thick necklace chain, omega or collar. Hook a pin over a string of beads or double them up, pulling them together around the neck. Close with a brooch to create a unique choker.
Use a pin converter to turn a brooch into a standard necklace pendant.
Turn a brooch into a piece of hair jewelry. Attach a pin to a headband. Using wire or thread, attach a brooch to a hair comb or barrette. Run the pin of a brooch through the elastic of a ponytail holder for a top knot accent piece. Attach a brooch directly to the hair (or a wig).
Good use on Indian Sarees, suits, dresses and dupattas etc.
Used to tie and decorate wedding/parties chair clothes on the back of chairs.
Excellent to decorate Christmas presents and gifts.
It can either be used on the top of invitation cards/letters for wedding parties, birthday perties, evening parties or casual invitations. This will certainily give a posh look to your invitations.
