  • Nur ala Nur – Butterfly effectThis Zoomorphic Islamic Art featuring a butterfly, with the following verse contained in each of its wings.نُّورٌ عَلَى نُورٍLight upon light (al-Nur, 24/35)It is correct that His Light is Absolute and no limit or boundary exists for it; however in the stages of exposure, its manifestation is relative to the capacities and merits of the recipients. As man ascends to higher and higher levels of recognition in tawhid, he likewise benefits from further illumination in his spiritual course:This part of the verse is also an analogy for this very meaning because after bestowing the gift of life, God guides His deserving creatures towards the perfection of their potentials by granting them of other bounties and makes them the recipients of His guidance.That which leads man to ultimate contentment and felicity is his sincere struggle to utilize his latent talents and abilities to benefit from the guidance and Light of His liberal and beneficent Creator, because all the paths to prosperity and salvation end there.Medium (Original) : Acrylic on CanvasSize (Original) : 35.5 cm x 25 cm x 4 cmArtist : Saadiqa Fakier

  • AlQadr – PowerAl-Qadr (Arabic: القدر‎, “Power, Fate”) is the 97th chapter (sūrah) of the Qur’an with 5 verses (āyāt). It is a Meccan surah which celebrates the night when the first revelation of what would become the Qur’an was sent down. The surah has been so designated after the word al-qadr in the first verse. It is mainly about power.This surah describes Laylat al-Qadr, the “Night of the abundant portion of blessings” in Ramadan on which Muslims believe the Qur’an was first revealed. Laylat al-Qadr occurs during an odd-numbered night within the last ten days of Ramadan, but its exact date is uncertain; due to the promises made in the sura and in various hadith. Muslims consider it a particularly good time for prayer, supplication, and repentance to God. This event marks the descent of the first revelation of the Quran to Earth.Medium (Original) : Oil on CanvasSize (Original) : 40 cm x 50 cm x 1.5 cmArtist : Saadiqa FakierPrice (Original) : R1299

  • The One without limitAs a symbol of the Unity of All Things, this piece is intended to be an expression of my humble understanding of the intrinsic LIMITLESS relationship between the created and Creator.The background features multiple varying facets representing the infinite attributes of the Creator (All-Compassionate, Ever-Merciful, The Provider, The Judge, …). The size, light and shadow as well as the blending of the two ends of colour spectrum is used to distinguish between these multitudes of attributes.The foreground is comprised of an ‘Alif’ (the first of the 29 letters of the Arabic Alphabet), who’s shape resembles that of the numeral 1 and according to Arabic numerology also has the value of 1. It is said to take on the archetypal value of the whole alphabet, with which it begins. It is thus also identified with Adam, the father of humankind and was thus chosen to represent the fundamental essence of natural existence, the created self, in its capacity mirroring the Divine attributes, herein depicted by the reflective finish of the Alif. Since creation is a manifestation from the Attributes of the Creator.While it stands Alone, Separated, Isolated and Independent, in that it is never connected with the letter following it. Thus symbolizing the transcendent, unqualified essence of Being. The downward stroke of the Alif symbolizes universal manifestation from the highest to the lowest state of Being. It symbolizes the Oneness of God as well as His unity.Medium (Original) : Oil on CanvasSize (Original) : 152 cm x 91 cm x 1.5 cmArtist : Faique Fakier#Islamic_calligraphy #arabic_calligraphy #alif #islamic_art #islamic_wall_art #Creator #Created #arabic
  • The Light of the Heavens and Earth
Surah An-Nur [24:35] – Al-Qur’an al-Kareem – القرآن الكريم
اللَّهُ نُورُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِAllah is the Light of the heavens and the earthMedium (Original) : Oil on CanvasSize (Original) : 40cm x 60cm x 2cmArtist : Faique Fakierhttps://expressionsoffaith.co.za/product/the-light-of-the-heavens-and-earth/
  • Waw-Whirling Dervishes – RumiMedium (Original) : Acrylic and Oil on Canvas with textureSize (Original) : 25.5cm x 51cm x 1.5cmArtist : Faique FakierThe letter waw is copula and a mark for the voice in the Arabic language, symbolizing the connection of God and man. The composition is not incidentally made in a circular form, it is there to symbolize the ritual of dhikr, to remind one of the infinite repetition and the circular movement and rhythm of composition are an association to the ritual’s choreography, right to left, like a cosmic movement. This visual dhikr, which, upon seeing calligraphy, prevents one from oblivion and brings him back to the state of consciousness, is a symbolism of the movement of the cosmos and the planets, because, according to Sufi teaching, everything is in movement.In art, Muslims “developed a great love for the waw and used it from about 1700 onwards for decorative purposes. They may have been inspired by numerous waws in the longer profession of faith, which was often calligraphically represented as a boat of salvation, with the waws serving as its oars.

Read MoreWhirling DervishesSufi whirling (or Sufi turning) (Turkish: Semazen borrowed from Persian Sama-zan, Sama, meaning singer, from Arabic, and zan, meaning doer, from Persian) is a form of physically active meditation which originated among Sufis, and which is still practiced by the Sufi Dervishes of the Mevlevi order and other orders such as the Rifa’i-Marufi.

  • Sarwari Qadri – Sultan BahuOriginal commissioned and Gifted to my beloved Sheikh Saeed Ali Chopdat and my Sultan Bahu Centre family.Medium (Original) : Acrylic and Oil on CanvasSize (Original) :150cm x 100cm x 4.4cmArtist : Faique FakierThis custom piece features the mazar of a great sufi saint, Sultan Bahu is located in Garh Maharaja, Punjab.The painting also incorporates the Ism-e-Allah Zaat (The Personal Name of Allah) and Ism-e-Mohammad (Sacred Name of Mohammad Sall’Allahu Alayhi Wa’alihi Wasallam). Sarwari Qadri Sufi Order - South Africa
Also known as Qadiriya Sultaniya, the order was started by Sultan Bahu in the seventeenth century and spread in the western part of Indian Subcontinent. Hence, it follows most of the Qadiriyya approach. In contrast, it does not follow a specific dress code or require seclusion or other lengthy exercises. Its mainstream philosophy is contemplation of belovedness towards God.Sultan Bahu
(Urdu: سُلطان باہُو‎‎; also spelled Bahoo; ca 1630–1691) was a Sufi mystic, poet, and scholar active during the Mughal empire mostly in the present-day Punjab province of Pakistan. He belonged to Qadiri Sufi order, and founded the mystic tradition known as Sarwari Qadiri.Little is known about Bahu’s life, other than what is written in a hagiography called Manaqib-i Sultani, which was written by one of Bahu’s descendants seven generations after Bahu’s own time. Sultan Bahu was born in Shorekot, @Jhang, in the current Punjab Province of Pakistan. More than forty books on Sufism are attributed to him (mostly written in Persian), largely dealing with specialised aspects of Islam and Islamic mysticism. However, it was his Punjabi poetry which had popular appeal and earned him lasting fame.:14 His verses are sung in many genres of Sufi music, including qawwali and kafi, and tradition has established a unique style of singing his coupletsThe shrine of Sultan Bahu is located in Darbaar Shareef - Hazrat Sultan Bahoo (R.A.), Garh More, Jhang.Maharaja, Punjab.

In the English language, the word generally refers to God in Islam. The word is thought to be derived by contraction from al-ilāh, which means “the god”, and is related to El and Elah, the Hebrew and Aramaic words for God.The word Allah has been used by Arabic people of different religions since pre-Islamic times. More specifically, it has been used as a term for God by Muslims (both Arab and non-Arab) and Arab Christians. It is also often, albeit not exclusively, used in this way by Bábists, Bahá’ís, Mandaeans, Indonesian and Maltese Christians, and Mizrahi Jews.For Sale !#islamic_art #arabic_calligraphy #islamic_calligraphy #Allah #islam #quran #medical_art #heart
