This is the painting I am working on for my Muslim-Christian Relations. I am learning to write Arabic calligraphy. I am also trying to learn to read the Qur’an in Arabic and to recite the Qur’an in Arabic. I am enjoying this very much. It makes me feel alive.
This is a muezzin leading the call to prayer (adhan). Only Allah is shown. In the painting the muezzin is sitting in calm as he calls to prayer. Allah enters the chaos of the world to conquer it and bring forth peace to all. In the ink drawing, the muezzin and Allah are drawn on ordinary material and due to Allah’s presence the ordinary becomes Holy.
