Freedom, by SameePanda. Aerosol Paints on MDF. The mural was designed to represent Spiritual Freedom/Freedom of the Heart and Soul, hence the quote of Ibn Taymiyyah to add emphasis on what Freedom means from an Islamic perspective.

Istanbul, by Nushmia Khan. Studying abroad in Istanbul for me was one of the most spiritual experiences I've had. I was able to understand the true essence of my religion, as put by the Prophet Muhammad (s) - Nothing will help you on the day of judgment except a sound heart.

    My brother is an artist & sometimes I wish he would take the initiative to do some Islamic art once in a while !

    The Humaira photograph is my favourite =)

    I liked the ‘Freedom’ graffitii- I think seeing that on the side of a building would be quite cool- if it weren’t an act of criminal vandalism, that is. :D

    Salaam.

    Although I don’t see how or why my picture deserve to be on this page, I am very honored. Thank you very much! =)

    Thank you for having chosen again one of my calligraphy.
