Holy Tears (2016)
Holy Tears (2016)
The Story: This painting symbolizes the wiping of sins during hajj. The Kaaba was created using gold leaf to resemble the light that emits from this holy site. Those who have visited will always remember entering masjid ul haram for the first time. The noor that glistens through this massive masjid is astonishing.
This painting was inspired by a particular memory from umrah. Amidst a large crowd, I saw a woman weeping in sujood. Her voice was loud as it could possibly be. She was alone in the woman's section in sujood. Everyone nearby carried on doing their own thing. She was shaking and choking yet no one disturbed her to calm her. What may seem to be unusual in our daily life is so normal at this holy site. She was alone with her maker... in discussion. The one place you can be surrounded by hundreds of thousands, yet feel alone and comforted in a beautiful way.
