WoOoW mashaallah sis your art is increadibly beautiful :wub:, especially those first attached colored paintings are my favorite, keep up the good work!
I've got a lot of drawings but can't share my art since they're non-islamic, mostly detailed anatomically outlines of the human body or skeleton...well, this one seems decent, no harm in sharing it! It's an old handmade drawing except the pencil on the background is coloured in photoshop.

Thank you :)

Yes unfortunately most of my art isn't Islamic either, it's mostly just random stuff but I'd really like to build up a large portfolio of Islamic art because I think that'd be more productive of me. Plus Islam is my life, why wouldn't I use my art to express something I'm so passionate about.

Your drawing is BEAUTIFUL! The intricate details are so nice and the picture is so peaceful to look at! I really like your style MashAllah :D Edited by hameedeh

Thank you! I love it! I love her style, it's almost folksy with the textured blocks of color. I want to copy her!

She's your mom?? What a cool mom... is she always busy painting? Does she use oil paint to do most of her art?


She is in Iran right now as she was invited to exhibit her works there. Well yes she is busy painting all day in her studio. My Dad's a commercial artist too and I am pursuing Art Direction for Games, Animation and Live-Action Films. Its really cool to see Art enthusiast in the Shia Community. We need more youth to take up Art/Media/Entertainment so that the right message is potrayed in a deserving manner(personal opinion). Do you also pursue Art?? Edited by hameedeh

A Graphic Artist is more into the Advertising industry. According to whatever I have been exposed to I personally feel that doing Art, building up a portfolio is always the best thing to do. Building a TOP CLASS, and i mean really good, more like industry standards where a director of a huge Game or Movie can hire you as a Concept Artist is the BEST THING TO DO. In this manner one can literally get hands down experience of doing Art which is so important and more importantly so much FUN. After Industry experience one can always branch into teaching. Most of the pros out there follow this patter. Again these are my opinions.

We should kind of arrange of start a forum so that our Community youth who pursue Art can get in touch, share work, experience and build their skills. From my side I dont know anyone(youth) from the community who does Art as pursuing Art is firstly considered a Taboo in the Indian Shia Commnity and secondly its considered a low paying way of life. Any one from your side??

Do you do Art, i mean have a Blog, update stuff like that. Well i am in the process of building a portfolio so mine is really amateur. A longggg way to go but anyways here's mine

Checked your work out, real good stuff. But you need to keep it going. Trying being motivated at all times(mann thats real difficult) and set yourself a benchmark. A good way of doing that is by looking at some real good artist's work. Check www.cghub.com for instance. I cry every time I check this website, the work is SKY HIGH....

^^ Literally translated the arabic: 'When will your noor rise, O Awaited One' (referring to Imam Al Mahdi ÚÌøá Çááøå ÝÑÌå ÇáÔÑíÝ, and on the stone (upside down) it says: 'Al Ajjal Ya Mawlai' (Hasten, O Master)

It's beautiful indeed.

jannahismygoal, post 17: map on apple in cage and stairs

 

From the old saying of young people, "the World is my Apple"

 

The idea/fantasy that the "World is My apple" is (really) a cage which kept me (past tense because the artist realizes their past condition) from the "stairway to Heaven" (Led Zepplin song, 1971)

 

Now uncaged, the artist can persue their faith.

    • By the way, do you have any good experience (I don't mean you took a certain module or class in medical school on behavioral health but then became a professional in an unrelated field like cardiology or something like that) or are involved in the behavioral health field? If so then I don't need to lecture you on the fact  that cases like abuse or forcing a certain lifestyle on someone (ironically sometimes there is consent from the other party on the new lifestyle being pushed on them) are not things that spontaneously occur and often times have complex psychological variables behind them.   Your anecdotes may suggest otherwise, but I know of anecdotes where on the surface it appeared that the man was "forcing" his wife to become a housewife and abandon her career. Since from the perspective of some but not all feminist Muslim women they cannot believe that a woman is willing to give up on a career and become a housewife, so they resort to calling the hubby oppressive and insist he is forcing something on his wife. But in the cases I know of if you look more closely without any bias it was evident that there was a decent amount of willing consent on the wife's part and the "force" element was not really there and at most the hubby acted "suggestive" but the whole decision to abandon her career was largely the wife's decision regardless.    And heck even sometimes just as how a husband might backbite his wife to his community and friends to gain their sympathies due to him being sick of his wife, sometimes the same thing can occur in reverse if the wife feels she will gain some genuine sympathy.   Even if a person is your best friend and you visit her house every weekend there are things that you don't know and may not ever know about her marital relationship and that knowing these things may change the picture completely. So I would advise to not rush to hasty conclusions. That is not to say that there are not genuine cases of abuse and force in marital relationships, but that there is no greater epidemic of it due to complexities in relationships. Again, if you are involved or have good experience in the field of behavioral health then I don't think I need to tell you this. 
    • That's exactly the point, I explicitly typed above the concept of a miracle: An extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency. Yes, they have been documented by historical excavations, well, some. Are you referring here to the primitive senses? Most of the records of the ancient world, used to think that earth was a flat piece of land/disk. Today this contradicts many laws (e.g Gravity). https://www.popsci.com/sites/popsci.com/files/styles/655_1x_/public/earth_from_the_iss.jpg?itok=mDRiVgnr Even refraction of light wasn't known much, other than seeing it, it was not known as a physical concept when light refracts from a plane. Snell's law for example was not perceived by the senses, rather Mathematics through an equation which was: (index of refraction1)*(Sin[theta]1)= (index of refraction2)*(sin[theta]2). Was this through primitive senses? I don't think so. Even the rotation of the Sun, it clearly was never thought it moved, rather that Earth rotates (after the discovery) around Sun ONLY. Solar/Lunar Eclipse defined this. Even the fact that their planetary orbits are not perceived by the senses.  Senses are limited.
    • Yes good! When Dawkin will be sent to Hell, he will feel that someone is playing Hallucination on him. Very good. I want to see him passing these theories there. "Deaf, dumb, and blind,

    • Tafakkur is a deed. Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 190:

Thou hast not created this in vain! Glory be to Thee; save us then from the chastisement of the fire:
      (English - Shakir) You can see brother, dhikr & tafakkur are deeds. Salat (prayer) is also a form of dhikr, Quran is dhikr. Surah Taha, Verse 14:
