Popped into the @vamuseum this weekend and was utterly captivated by the #jameelprize exhibition. All of it was absolutely stunning, and I loved the visually pleasing simplicity (with the massive complexity behind it) of this piece by Medhi Moutashar. Everyone should go and check the exhibition out. #Jameelprize5 #vanda #modernart #islamictradition #design

كيت ميدلتون تعلمت اللغة العربية وتلقت تعاليم الإسلام في صغرها… أعرب الأمير ويليام خلال زيارته إلى الأردن عن حزن زوجته دوقة كامبريدج كيت ميدلتون لعدم قدرتها على مرافقته بعد ولادة طفلهما الأمير لويس. وخلال زيارته، توجه ويليام لزيارة معالم جرش التاريخية الأثرية، وهنالك التقط صورة كالتي التقطتها كيت قبل نحو 34 عاماً برفقة والدها مايكل وشقيقتها الصغرى بيبا ميدلتون، وكشف أن زوجته عاشت في الأردن لمدة 3 سنوات في العاصمة الأردنية عمان عندما كان والدها يعمل لدى الخطوط الأردنية في عمان. وكانت كيت في ذلك الوقت تبلغ من العمر السنتين وقد ألحقت بحضانة بريطانية تدعى "أساهيرا"، وهي واحدة من أغلى المدارس في المنطقة بلغت رسومها حوالي 750 جنيه استرليني. وقد تحدثت ساهرة النابلسي، مؤسسة الحضانة التي أغلقت، عن التجربة التي عاشتها كيت حيث تطرَّقت إلى الروتين اليومي الذي مرَّ به الطلاب في المدرسة، ففي الصباح كان الأطفال يجلسون جميعهم في دائرة وهم يغنون أغنية " Incy Wincy Spider" باللغتين الإنجليزية والعربية. وتابعت: "كنا نقرأ آية واحدة من القرآن لتحسين اللغة العربية للأطفال ونروي قصصاً عن أصحاب الرسول والأنبياء. وكانت كيت ضمن 12 طفلاً في الصف من جنسيات مختلفة: بريطانية، أردنية، أمريكية، هندية، وغيرها.". يذكر أن عائلة ميدلتون عادت إلى بيركشاير عام 1986 بعد انتهاء عمل والدها في المنطقة، لكن الدوقة تفخر بهذه اللحظات الجميلة إذ وثَّقت هذه اللحظات في سيرتها على الموقع الخاص للعائلة المالكة البريطانية. #katemiddleton #katemiddletonstyle #duchessofcambridge #kensingtonpalace #arablanguage #arabicschool #islamictradition #islam #childhood #amman #jordan

Guilds aren't anything new. They were around in Pre-Capitalist societies. I.e Islamic societies and were the actual organisation of labour before the state model came along. They're part of the Muslim tradition. #guilds #guild #islamictradition #muslimtradition #labor #labour #banks #bank

Visiting the elders and asking for their forgiveness and blesings is a local tradition of Indonesian moslem culture in celebrating eid mubarak.

Ramadan has been known as the most important month in the lives of Muslims. The holy month of fasting is about to end with Eid al-Fitr, a day of joyous prayer, feasting, and celebration. Eid 2018 will be celebrated from the evening of June 14, 2018 and end on June 15, 2018, in the evening, in India. The celebrations include gorging on some delicious food and wishing each other the mandatory ‘Eid Mubarak’ with the traditional hug. Best Wishes to all our travel partners and loved once.

Rare pictures of goosebumps, that I saw this after 15 years or so. This elderly gentleman is waking up people for suhoor(pre-dawn meal) in middle of the night despite of drizzle. This is a tradition among Muslims during Ramadan, certain individuals step in to wake up people to have their suhoor. I thought this doesn’t exist in Colombo anymore until I crossed him near Colombo Grand Mosque today. (Slide to listen) He uses one sided drum, generally sings a song denoting the virtues of Ramadan or an Islamic concept. But the tradition, too, is dying, replaced by reliable alarm clocks or the rise of megacities, making the door-to-door wake-up call impossible as individual homes make way for high-rise apartments. This used to be a known profession, public pay for them at the end of the month and some do it without wages. In much of the Middle East the job is called “the suhoor drummer” or “musharati,” done with large drums. This job had its absolute longing decades ago before the electricity, they carry a lamp and go throughout the village where people had limited options. He reminds, early days children used to rally around them, for their entertaining songs, walking along until they finish their daily task of waking people up. They were also relied upon as a medium for the social messages drenched in their songs. The endangered tradition is still to be widely seen in Palestine, Turkey, parts of India and Pakistan, especially after youths volunteer to taking it up as a cause. We call them “bawa”, comment what name do you call them and share your fine memories. . . #zaikshoots #Ramadan #myramadan #ramadan2018 #suhoortime #suhoor #islamictraditionalmusic #islamictradition #everydaysrilanka #vsco #everythingeverything #streetsofsrilanka #streetsofasia #streetarteverywhere #streetphotography
Haféz, Thanks be to God now that the wine-shop door is open, since it's there I'm heading for; . The jars are groaning with fermented wine, With wine that's real, and not a metaphor, . That brings us drunkness, and pride, and pleasure, While we bring weakness, need, and not much more! . The secret I've told, and won't, to others I'll tell my friend- of him I can be sure. . It's not a short tale, it describes the twists In my belovèd's hair, and lovers' lore. . Majnun's grief, Layla's curls, Ayaz's foot That royal Mahmud's face bowed down before; . And like a hawk I've seeled my eyes to all The world, to glimpse the face that I adore. . Whoever strays within your street, it is Your eyebrow's curve that he will pray before; . O friends, to know the fire in Hafez' heart Ask candles what they're burning, melting, for. {Haféz, "Faces of Love". p.15} #Beloved #love #Hafez #persianpoetry #facesoflove #tasawwuf #sufism #islam #islamictradition #ramadan

﷽ In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful . ...Are not hearts at peace in the remembrance of God? {Quran, al- Ra'd (the Thunder), 28} . In the language of spiritual alchemy, the remembrance of God is described as an elixir that eventually turns the lead or base metal of the soul into pure gold (R). This is similar to when God's Majesty descends upon the heart through the act of remembrance: it acts as an elixir for the heart, gradually transforming it from a dark, murky substance into one that is pure, luminous, unchangable (R), and able to "see". The heart is thus changed from its fallen state, symbolized by lead, to its state of perfection, symbolizes by gold. . This verse can also refer to the peace that comes by virtue of God's remembrance of human beings. One Sufi gloss on this verse states, "There are a people whose hearts are at peace because of their remembrance of God. And there are a people whose hearts are at peace because of God's Remembrance of them- 'the Remembrance of God is surely greater' (29:45). Each of these two perspectives, in a sense, emphasizes different aspects of 2:152, 'So remember Me, and I shall remember you' (My). *(R)- Fakhr al-Dīn al-Rāzī (d.606/1210) **(My)- Rashīd al Dīn al-Maybudī (d. ca, 520/1126) .

Iftar Cannon fire in fujaireah, Historians have also speculated that the tradition of firing the Iftar cannon during the holy month of Ramadan could have begun accidentally. In the UAE, the tradition of firing the cannon started in Sharjah, between 1924 and 1950, during the rule of Sheikh Sultan Bin Saqr Al Qasimi.

"Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), . . Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) . Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, . Who has taught by the pen . Has taught man that which he knew not." -Qur'an: Chapter 96 Al-Alaq (The Clot) #quran #ramadan #firstrevelation #monthoftheBook #read #seekingknowledge #islamictradition #guidance #learning
“For a moment ponder the Lord’s subtleties and kindnesses and the traces of the divine solicitude and care that have arranged this handful of earth. Look at the different kinds of honor and the special privileges of nearness that He has placed within human beings. For He created the whole cosmos, but He looked not upon a single creature with the eye of love, He sent not a single messenger to any existent thing, He sent no message to any creature. When the turn of the children of Adam arrived, He pulled them up through gentleness and caressed them through bounty and quarries of light. He made their inmost mystery the place of His own glance, He sent them messengers, He set angels over them as guardians, He placed the fire of love in their hearts, and He sent them continuous incitements to yearning and motives for desire. . The purpose of all these words and allusions is to show that a human being is a handful of earth. Whatever ennoblement and honor people have received derives from the gentleness and care of the Holy Lord. When He gives, He gives because of His own Generosity, not because of your worthiness. He gives because of His Magnanimity, not because of your prostration. He gives through His Bounty, not because of your good works…“ . -Rashid Al-Din Maybudi, from the Kashf al-Asrar wa ‘Uddat al-Abrar (Unveiling of Mysteries and Provision of the Righteous) . . #God #knowledgeofGod #Ma 'rif #Divineknowlege #FolksofRecognition #RashidalDinMaybudi #Persian #Scholar #Tafseer #tasawwuf #Sufism #WilliamChittick #Unveiling #humaness #innerknowledge #islam #islamictradition #metaphysics #hikmah #wisdom #GodsAttributes #Creation #Oneness #Tawheed #Unity #love #Islamic_chronicles

﷽ In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful . He it is Who shows you lightning, arousing fear and hope, and Who produces heavy-laden clouds. The thunder hymns His praise, as do the angels, in awe of Him. He sends forth the thunderbolts and strikes therewith whomsoever He will... {Quran, the Thunder/ al Ra'd: 12-13} . When one sees the flashes of lightening, it inspires fear of the impending thunder, but also hope that rain may descend (R)*. This verse is also believed to have symbolic levels of meaning. For example, according to the philosopher Shihāb al-Dīn al-Suhrawardī (d.587/1191), the lightening referred to in this verse symbolizes the initial Divine flashes of illumination that descend suddenly upon the soul of the person walking along the spiritual path, bringing about much joy. Such a person has fear that these flashes will vanish and hope that they will remain (Majmū'a-yi āthār-i fārsī-yi Shaykh-i Ishrāq [Tehran, 1980], 301). ... According to the Sufi commentator al-Kashānī, the thunderbolts here refer to the "august glories" (sabaḥāt) of Divinity that manifest God's Might and Grace, thereby annihilating the egoistical desires of whomsoever He will, referring to those who love God and yearn for Him. *(R)- Fakhr al-Dīn al-Rāzī. . {Seyyed Hossein Nasr, "The Study Quran" p.618-619} [In the picture it is a manuscript of Quran (al Fatiha)- from Shiraz.
