Bare Room with Flowers - 10th November 2011

This is 'Bare Room with Flowers', this was the imaginary basis for my painting 'Raufum bil I'baadi' [Kind with (His) slaves], which was painted on 29th April 2010. This sketch was even more skeletal than this before, just as a guide for the painting. But today I just added some more marks to make it a work in itself. You can compare the painting that emanated from it  below here:-

The kindness alluded to here is that of shelter, simplicity, beauty, nature and the cause of contemplation in those. This Name of Allah occurs in the Qura'n in the following verses "And there is the type of man who gives his life to earn the pleasure of Allah. And Allah is full of kindness to (His) slaves[raoo'fum bil i'baadi]." (al Baqarah 2:207) and "On the Day when every soul will be confronted with all the good it has done, and all the evil it has done, it will wish there were a great distance between it and its evil. But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself. And Allah is full of kindness to his slaves." (aali I'mraan 3:30)
