The Taqwa Rose

(click to expand)

I envisaged the Taqwa Rose a long time ago. An explanation and written exposition of this piece of art will be forthcoming in the next few days.

Suffice it to say for now, this represents a holistic typology of the major Islamic virtues- the interaction between virtues and how they reinforce, complement each other in a way that is natural, as if Divinely intended; a moral and spiritual ecosystem of sorts.

Special thanks for Sr. Iya Furkan for bringing this vision together.


  1. love this! i want to make one 🙂

  2. bit like Habib Ali’s “shajara tayyiba” ! 🙂

    very beautiful ma sha Allah, esp the heart of the rose – Allahumma salli 3alayh!

  3. Hahaha it’s up! Masha’Allah.
