These pieces feature soft colors and soothing patterns such as mandalas or mosaics; others may incorporate text from the Quran or quotes by Prophet Muhammed; yet still more may depict natural scenery such as sunrises and sunsets or rolling sand dunes.

Calligraphy, like any form of art, requires its practitioners to adhere to a set of rules in order to achieve true artistic beauty. These include elements like composition, harmony, some type of ancestry connection and rhythm that drive its artistry forward.
Calligraphers need years to become master calligraphers. This requires learning how to hold their qalam correctly, make up and down strokes with precision, as well as subtleties such as when and where to start writing. Learning takes patience, self-discipline and humility which is why great calligraphers always view their work with empathy for their limitations and ineptitudes.
Though some Muslims disapprove of wearing jewelry, others accept modest pieces as long as it does not look flashy or extravagant. Muslims should avoid getting any piercings or tattoos as these can also be considered disrespectful acts against religious sensibilities.
Islamic jewellery often features Ayatul Kursi from the Quran as a popular motif, which speaks of God’s incomparability and is thought to protect believers against evil. This verse can often be seen engraved onto necklaces as a talisman and worn as protection.
Another religious symbol often seen on jewelry is the Hand of Fatima (Hamsa), said to ward off evil and bad luck. Many Muslims carry talismans featuring this religious icon while traveling or living away from home.
Prayer rugs are used by Muslims to aid them in aligning themselves towards the Kaaba when praying. They usually measure two by three feet and can be made out of various materials – cotton is often the go-to choice, though more luxurious hand-knotted options exist as well.
Some prayer rugs feature geometric designs with beautiful geometric shapes, but do not depict people or animals; others, however, feature symbolic motifs to illustrate how religion is significant to Muslim culture.
On these rugs, leaf embellishments and slender trees represent the gates of paradise and immortality, while water and birds symbolize the Kaaba, while Arabic script symbolizes God’s beauty and divinity.
Tasbih (Tasbeeh in Arabic) prayer beads are used by Muslims to count their recitations of praise (dhikr) to Allah. This act of Zikr is considered extremely personal and transformative – offering believers a means of feeling connected to their Creator, and showing our devotion.
