Surah Ar-Rahman – 1

By January 27, 2018 October 1st, 2018 Arabic Calligraphy

This artwork is the first piece in a series titled “Surah Ar-Rahman”.
Translation: The Most Merciful, Taught the Qur’an, Created man (Surah 55, 1, 2, 3)
It describes how God is ‘Ar-Rahman’ ( The Most Merciful ). This is depicted in the artwork through the womb, specifically, how, when it is in the womb, the child is still fed. The verse then goes on to say how he taught the Qur’an which is shown using the book and the ink and feather. It then goes to describe how he created man and humans are depicted in the artwork through the eye. I specifically used an eye to represent the humans because it brings out the idea, that humans are the only ones who can truly appreciate this world and its greatness.
