Ummul Quran Monochrome
A bold, yet elegant statement piece of Surah Al-Fatiha. Heavy texture with the use of stones and shells, in addition to various other painting mediums.
The Fatiha, the first Chapter in the Quran, also been referred to “The mother of the Quran”.
The Fatiha is a comprehensive summary of the Holy Book, starting off with praise and thanks to Allah. It is also known as the cure to all diseases. In particular here, I will emphasise the spiritual diseases which plague us today; grief, sadness, anxiety, jealousy, laziness, envy, anger, selfishness, complaint, discontentment and resentment, just to name a few.
The frequent recitation of this chapter serves as a cure and treatment to all these diseases and more. It is a true testament to the verse: “Ala bithikrillahi tatma innal quloob” (Indeed in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find contentment) 13:28 -
