< Ayat -ul-Kursi
Al-Quran: 2:255 "Allah! There is no god ˹worthy of worship˺ except Him, the Ever-Living, All-Sustaining. Neither drowsiness nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who could possibly intercede with Him without His permission? He ˹fully˺ knows what is ahead of them and what is behind them, but no one can grasp any of His knowledge—except what He wills ˹to reveal˺. His Seat encompasses the heavens and the earth, and the preservation of both does not tire Him. For He is the Most High, the Greatest."
Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith no: 3371 (Saying of the Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H)
The Prophet (ﷺ) used to seek Refuge with Allah for Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain (grandsons) and say: "Your forefather (i.e. Abraham) used to seek Refuge with Allah for Ishmael and Isaac by reciting the following: 'O Allah! I seek Refuge with Your Perfect Words from every devil and from poisonous pests and from every evil, harmful, envious eye.
Reliance on Allah>
Al-Quran:39:36: "Isn't Allah enough for His servant"
Patience is something one should observe and let go through the hard challenges of life where one person puts all the faith in the Creator. At the end, only the Creator can make the impossible, possible! And if a human does right, then the Creator is there to help, protect and make paths

The Last Sermon Of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H)
Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) said: "All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a White has no superiority over a Black nor a Black has any superiority over a White except by piety and good action."
(Geometric construction & Pattern analysis from "The Jameh Mosque of Yazd" Iran)
The pattern is divided in to two portions with the colorful lines that reflect the concept of "creation". Notice the patterns & colors are same but the rendering of the colors is different, hence, recognizing the individuality of each person on Earth.
Al-Quran: 21:87: " There is no God but You, Glorified be You! Truly, I have been of the wrongdoers"
Directs to the story of Jonah and the whale and the verse is regarded as reciting abundantly for removing any difficulty.
< True Line
Al-Quran: 1:6 "Ihdina-ssirat al-Mustaqim’ - Guide Us on the straight path"
Geometric pattern analysis is from the Iznik Ottoman Tile. A quarter of it has been utilized for my art work as "an arrow" directing towards that "one way towards the truth". Even when we reverse our steps on that same path, it is still the right path and the arrows does not point to left or right revealing the firmness and stability promised by the straight path
Inspiration/Central Idea/The Background:
This sermon was delivered by the Last Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) on the Ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah, 10 A.H (623 AD) in the Uranah valley of Mount Arafat in Mecca. It was the occasion of annual rites of Haj. It is also known as the Farewell Pilgrimage. He said:
"All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab, also a White has no superiority over a Black nor a Black has any superiority over a White except by piety and good action"
