Inspiration: Qur’anic Verses
I delight in resting my eyes upon the Holy Qur’an’s words, the beauty they give off has been my greatest inspiration in countless octaves of my existence including creativity. I can linger on the Qur’an’s words for a long time, one by one because they are like open windows to worlds of astonishing wonder. The Qur’an’s Verses propel upward, they have a way of rendering the atmosphere holy and of making you still, humble and clear inside; these divine verses are my scriptural incense. Even in just one word, through each letter’s curves, there are perfumes, signs and universes, each offering themselves to our being like Surrender itself… Prostration upon prostration ubiquitously fading to be replaced with new ones! Untold beauties unfurl in such a generous way, one knows the Mercy of Allah (swt) is the quintessence of this magnificent, vertiginous existence. Language has never been as excellent and divine as in the Holy Qur’an! Allahu Akbar.

“Say: If the whole of mankind and Jinn were together to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they back up each other with help and support.”
(~17: 88 Qur’an)
“And if all the trees on the earth were pens and the sea (were ink wherewith to write), with seven seas behind it to add to its (supply), yet the Words of Allah would not be exhausted. Verily, Allah is AllMighty, AllWise.”
(~31: 27 Qur’an)
