The movement and colour palette were chosen to tell the story of the verse scripted. This was the prayer of Prophet Yunus (AS), whilst he was stuck in the belly of the whale.

The meaning of this verse is: "There is no deity except You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers."

In reference to the current atrocities happening in Palestine, I find that constantly praying this Supplication helps, as it reminds us that even if things seem so dark, and as though there is no way out (Like in the story of Prophet Yunus AS), there is always hope.

I chose to paint poppies on this piece, as they are the National flower of Palestine, the identity which cannot be stripped away from its people.

The calligraphy is written in Maghrebi Script, of the Marinid style.
