Calligraphy: "Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth." 24:35

The Story

The verse of light is known for its remarkable beauty. It's famous for being one of the most intricate verses of the Quran.

The art symbolizes the complete verse of Noor "The example of His light is like a niche within which is a lamp, the lamp is within the glass, the glass as if it were a pearly [white] star lit from [the oil of] a blessed olive tree..."

Now visualize this. The mishkat (niche) represents the chest of the believer. The glass symbolizes the heart (clear and pure in intention), and the light is the Quran, guidance, and iman from Allah.

The glistening gold arch represents the wall niche that protects the lamp.
The two circles closing in symbolize the double light. The Quran is noor. When it reaches our hearts, it becomes Noor ala Noor. The light of the Quran and the purity of the believer. We have a light within that needs to be lit.

To gain this noor, we must do what pleases Allah and ask Allah to put noor in our hearts. Notice the calligraphy racing? When believers see their light on the Day of Judgment, they will race behind their light to get to Jannah.

Everything we do should be to purify this light within to enlighten others and help guide them to the straight path. In the end, Allah guides to His noor whom he wills.

Love the design, top quality product.

Modern and Classy Artwork with Meaning and Depth

I purchased "Noor Ala Noor" and "Labaik Allahumma Labaik" together as I wanted to hang them on my wall as a set. As you can see in the images I posted, they look so classy and modern (aesthetically working perfectly with my decor) yet also introducing a beautiful faith-filled meaning and depth to my space. The prints are of excellent quality! I put them up in the IKEA Silverhojden frames to make the gold really 'pop' and it definitely catches your eye. Do not hesitate to buy these prints for your home :)

Light Upon Light

Absolutely amazing pieces, we designed the interior corridors of our new house around Saleha's artwork of 5 off XXXL stretch canvas pieces and 1 off XXL stretch canvas. It's a real conversation topic for all our muslim and non muslim friends.

Modern and beautiful

Combining Islamic calligraphy with abstract art makes this very modern and unique. Loved both the pieces and will be buying more in the future. The Story is a very valuable add on as it brings meaning to the art, I printed and added it as part of the gift however would suggest you provide a print out of The Story with the purchase also.
