Created with oil paints and gel mediums, this painting consists of layers of genuine 22k Gold
Leaf on textured canvas and Sterling Silver Leaf ink. Charcoal and watercolor mediums are also present under layers of gesso.
Earth, Water and sky; the elements are stacked in three bands in this gracefully abstract peice. The horizontal lines mapping out glimpes of a horizon are countered by a gold depiction of the Holy Kaaba, a reminder of the symmetry and balance Allah swt has blessed us with here on earth. This is no dark landscape, it is an endless promise of the beauty of truth and virtuous blessings we've been given. That is, this is a proof of the fact that your real nature knows no other Lord than Allah, and you feel in the depths of your hearts that He alone possesses the real power of every gain or loss. Had it not been so, man would never have invoked Allah at the time when he realized that no other helper could remove his misfortune.
Surrounding the 24k gold leaf depiction of the Holy Kaaba is the verse:
رَبُّكُمُ الَّذِىۡ يُزۡجِىۡ لَـكُمُ الۡفُلۡكَ فِى الۡبَحۡرِ لِتَبۡتَغُوۡا مِنۡ فَضۡلِهٖؕ اِنَّهٗ كَانَ بِكُمۡ رَحِيۡمًا
Your Lord is He Who drives the ships on the sea for you that you may seek of His bounty. He is certainly Ever Merciful to you
-Surah Al Isra 17:66
Written in 24k gold burnished ink on the lower portion of the painting is the verse:
فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ
Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?
