Arabic Calligraphy Reads:

Durood-E-Ibrahim 

The Story: 

This painting is inspired by the moment where one recites Darood-E-Ibrahim when visiting the Prophet Muhammad’s PBUH grave in Masjid-e-Nabawi. The masjid is overflowing with souls from around the globe, yet the atmosphere is cool and calm. The green and gold interior is splendid and probably the most memorable. This was my humble attempt to symbolize the famous pillars, green dome and umbrellas in an abstract way. The silver leaf in motion represents the cool breeze felt during Fajr in the early morning hours. 

Reciting Durood is done to send Allah’ mercy and blessings on the Prophet Muhammad PBUH to show our love and gratitude. The benefits are immense. It’s a way for us to get high ranks in the court of Allah. Reciting the Darood raises the status of its readers. Prophet Muhammad PBUH said,

“On the day of Qiyamah the person closest to me will be the one who has sent the most Durood unto me.” (Tirmidhi)

“Whoever supplicates Allah to exalt for me, Allah would exalt him ten times”. (Muslim)
