THE SIGNS IN ART - Farah Atelier


Thursday, January 3, 2019


The basic element of any work of Islamic calligraphy art is an “ayat” or verse of the GlorQuran. Most people search for specific ayats of the Quran or generally search for “ayats art” or “best ayats art”.
An ayat, as we said, is a verse of the Quran. Each chapter is made up of a set number of ayats or verses. An Arabic word, ‘Ayat’ also refers to the ‘Signs’ of Allah, which include the Miracle of the Quran itself, the evidences of His Creation in Nature, such as the mountains, the rivers, the trees, the fruits, the animals, etc, His Perfect Order and Governance in the natural processes such as the alternation of Day and Night, the rejuvenation of the dead earth when rain falls on it, thus leading to new life in the form of plants, emerging from it, the birth of the human child etc.

Repeatedly, the Quran reminds people to look at theSigns in Nature, and even within them and ponder over them. Would they still live in denial and believe that the whole Universe came into being on its own? Or that they were born without the Will and Mercy of Allah? Or would they worship false deities who can neither help them nor help themselves? Would they refuse to believe in the Final Resurrection given that Allah causes the dead earth to bring out life after pouring rain on it?
Some of the verses of the Quran which mention these Signs are given below:

“And of his signs is the creation of the heavens and earth and what He has dispersedthroughout them of creatures. And He, for gathering them when He wills, is competent.” (Surah Ash-shuraa, ayah 29)

"And a sign for them is the dead earth. We have brought it to life and brought forth from it grain, and from it they eat.”(Surah Yasin, verse 33)

“And they denied him, so We destroyed them. Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.”(Surah Ash-shu’araa verse 139)

“You are but a man like ourselves, so bring a sign, if you should be of the truthful."(Surah Ash-shu’araa154)

“These are the verses of Allah which We recite to you in truth. Then in what statement after Allah and His verses will they believe?”(Surah Al Jathiya Verse 6)

“And it is He who spread the earth and placed therein firmly set mountains and rivers; and from all of the fruits He made therein two mates; He causes the night to cover the day. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.” (Surah Ar-Rad, verse 3)

Indeed, there are Signs everywhere and Allah commands us to use our faculty of observation and thinking. The Quran itself is a Sign, an Evidence of His Mercy, and it is made up of several chapters divided into “verses”, also called “ayats”.

Hopefully, this article should help put things in perspective for those searching for “Ayats art” or “Best Ayats Art”.
