Ramadan Thought - 1

The doors of Heavan are opened up on the first night of Ramadhan.

Not a single door is closed until the last night of Ramadhan.

Actually you used two pictures - not one. But thanks for including the Photo Credit. That's very polite of you. You could have easily copied and gone!

Did you read the note on the right hand side which request folk not to use the images for their websites?

InshaAllah not to worry.

My reason for leaving that note is not because I am an awfully possessive person who likes being cruel.. NO -

Rather - my reason is because the images here are my own work. The two that you have used are my pieces of work, and an extension of my ibadah. Just as long as you remember this in your blog. Artwork for me is more than holding paintbrushes and needles!

Also - the artwork has specific meanings and I wouldn't really like the images to be used to represent anything 'different' if that makes any sense(?) The first picture you have used: 'Circles of Knowledge' contains alot of thought which reflects my own thinking. The second 'In The Love of God' again is a piece which was done with a specific theme in mind.

I have had this debate with other artists too, who feel that the 'observor' is allowed to add meaning to art.. and I always disagree with my own work! As I believe that true meaning of the work is hidden with the one who did it, for they know what influenced their choice of colour, design etc.

But as I say thanks for the foto credit!

>>>i want to post about ur blog in mine as well. its really worth mentioning.
Unsure what you meant here. Please do explain - post what?

Many thanks for visiting. Btw how did you stop-by and get to the Tranquil Zone?

I prefer to search sufi blogs and blogs with islamic themes. I guess i got ur blog from some one else's blog.

Ok. I agree with u that the artwork has its original meaning only attributed by the artists. but sharing it doesn't have any harm, does it?

For example, in a sense, this whole cosmos and universe is an art work of God and the only true meaning of it is known only to Him.

But again, we all create our own meaings of life, our work, your art works, isn't it.

So may be both side of the coin has value in it - that the artist have its own meaning, and again the experiencer also have his or her own little meaning.

God bless and thanks for allowing me. Again if u feel uncomfy about using those images in my post feel free to command me to remove them from my blog.

I will obey the Artist's command, God willing.

Thanks for popping-by at Camel-Land and for your prayer.

Your site is fab MashaAllah. But the only thing is - I have deliberatly avoided a 'blog-link' section! Most of the great blogs could be found from the Umm Zee Link on the other side!

Keep up your good work too.
