Ramadan, the month of fasting from dawn to dusk, is a blessed period during which Muslims make special efforts to engage in good deeds, be it offering more prayers, reading the Quran more frequently or giving charity. The Prophet (peace be upon him) was said to be more generous in Ramadan than in other months.

  4. Coloured Islamic Canvas Art

    'Add colour to your life', they say, implying that one should live with joy and positivity. Colours are known to not just give us visual delight, but also to uplift our moods. Colours are an essential part of wall decor, as people choose to colour the walls of their homes, instead of keeping them plain white. In fact, it is a modern home décor trend to paint one wall of a room in a colour other than white. So that you can have a "dash of colour" in your room.

  5. Islamic, Artistic and Colourful

    Move over traditional Islamic wall art  in which Arabic text would be stitched with golden thread on a black fabric, usually velvet or silk. Or ayats would be neatly sewn onto colourful carpets, or verses would be hand-written with black ink on a white sheet of paper.

  8. Islamic Wall Art: A Reminder

    Each verse of the Quran is a gem, a word of wisdom, a mercy for mankind. The Quran also has instructions that are applicable to special situations, such as those related to marriage, inheritance, treatment of prisoners caught in battles, etc. But the overall Quranic message is that of taqva, which can be defined as the fear and love of Allah. Whatever situation we may find ourselves in – as routine as eating your breakfast, or as special as birth of a child – we must always be in a state of taqva, i.e, fear and love of Allah.
