Flame of Allah, by Sunflower Central. The background piece is a water color layer of different oranges. In the foreground is a paper with the Calligraphy cut from it to give a view to the background piece. The foreground ground is a rounded kufic style caligraphy that is actually in English. It is done in pen and ink with a dark blue ink to contrast with the fluid style of the orange water colors in the background.

Dr Mehzabeen b. Ibrahim joined MuslimMatters as a blogger in late 2007 under the handle 'iMuslim', whilst still a struggling grad student. Since then, she has attained a PhD in Molecular Biology and a subsequent Masters in Bioinformatics, and now works as a specialist in this field for a well-known British, medical charity, masha'Allah. Somewhere in between she found the time to get married, alhamdulillah. She likes to dabble in photo and videography, a sample of which can be found on her personal blog: iMuslim.tv.

      I know what ‘falana’ means… but what does ‘dimkana’ mean? It’s not something dodgy, I hope?! I also asked my parents, and they didn’t know, so I’m guessing it’s not Hindi/Urdu?
