وَفِي أَنفُسِكُمْ ۚ أَفَلَا تُبْصِرُونَ “And on the earth are signs for the certain [in faith]. And in yourselves. Then will you not see?” (Az-Zumar) Tafseer (Jalalayn): And in the earth, in the way of mountains, seas, trees, fruits, plants and other things, there are signs, indications of God’s power, glory be to Him, exalted be He, and of His Oneness, for those who know with certainty, and in your souls, there are also signs, from the beginning of your creation to its end, and in the marvelous aspects of your creation. Will you not then perceive?, [all] that and thus infer therefrom the Creator of it and His power.
A heavily textured mixed media painting, an abstract representation of the name “Allah” (God). The Elements collection is exactly what it sounds like. A collection inspired by the very elements around us, where I’ve utilised twigs, branches, wood slices, sand, stones and shells, in an attempt to glorify the One who created them. This whole collection represents a deeper spiritually and connection, a realisation of the Oneness of God, and His spirit that flows within each and every living thing. It’s a celebration of creation and my humble perception of the Beauty of Allah that exists all around us!
