Modern Islamic Art

When speaking about Modern Islamic Art, we expect to find not only a perfect visual concept and nice drawing, but also a kind of spiritual experience, something behind the scene of mere shades and colors. Making Islamic Art is not just painting. What we are doing is exchanging our thoughts and feelings. That’s why I put in my Islamic pictures something more than a simple visual performance. Every my picture is a short story telling about the beauty and diversity of Islam. Hope, you like it.

#Arabic letters are both complex and simple. Very ordinary shapes at first glance. But when brought together in a #calligraphy, they shine and amaze. This wonder bird is built of the famous Alif – Lam – Mim letters combination. Hope, you like it.

Strict rules of the #Arabic #calligraphy imply certain disposition of the letters. They must go naturally as if in ordinary writing and, of course, must have some sense. But I dared to break the rules and place the well known Alif-Lam-Mim letters in an unusual way to build a fictional wonder bird.

What is there behind the golden door of #Kaaba? Nobody knows for sure. But the more mystery one would imagine – the simplest is the answer. There is nothing inside it. Only empty space, open for free minds, without any obstacles to listen to His words… Find more at http://islamic-ecards.com.

Jabal al-Noor along with the Holy #Kaaba are the only sacred places in #Mecca which date back to the time of the #Prophet, peace be upon him. Atop this mountain the story of #Islam began. The night of the first revelation changed the history, changed the humankind. Look at the picture and move 1400 years back in time. This is how the story begins…

There is no mention of Alif Lam Mim or any other letters combination in pre-Islamic texts or poetry. Such a strange literal form was completely out of the practice and tradition of the language. Not surprising that it became so notable and amazing for the later #Quran readers and gave rise to numerous mystical meanings and explanations. Find more at http://islamic-ecards.com.

This art was inspired by the famous painting “Pilgrims going to #Mecca” by Leon Belly, 1861. Look at these people. We know to what place they are going… But from where and why? What if the caravan is leaving the ruins of the present world and heading back to the primeval desert to find new life and new destiny there? Or, maybe, it’s a kind of a modern day #pilgrimage?

When you look high in the sky, you may see a sign of divine, a sign of supreme. Something hidden behind the clouds. Something both visible and invisible. What makes the Sun shine and the Moon fade to crescent. It’s the power of #Allah, the evidence of His dominance and everlasting existence. At day or at night, at any season and in any part of the Earth – we are living under #Islamic Sky…

Time to pray. Al-Fajr. When night fades out and the first rays of sun are going to break out above the horizon, it’s time for al-fajr prayer, the first of the day and God's most-favoured prayer.
