Knowledge

The image is the Arabic word "ilm" which means Knowledge. This is written in Classic Square Kufic Script with a modern design twist.

Education and increasing your level in knowledge is very important in Islam.

For example, Caliph Al-Ma'mun is said to have encouraged translators and scholars to add to the library in the House of Wisdom by paying them the weight of each completed book in gold.

Muslims have helped to pave the way for the renaissance, which have has been ignored in the history books until recently.

cool,
but it took me a minute to actually find each letter.
the lower left "ilm" looks a bit like some kind of warrior in a strange stance :O

Well it is the same word faced off asymmetrically against itself, correct? So it seemed to me to be like when two people know something but neither admits to the other that they do.

great script! i like how you've fitted the word to itself, like a jigsaw puzzle. one question though: when you write the joined 'mim' don't you need to make a loop? or does this script design the mim in a different way?

I like the powerful simplicity of this piece, particularly the colour choice; you chose that gold intentionally, right? Knowledge in gold. ;)
How does the Classic Square Kufic Script work? Is that the same character rotated to create a nice tesselated feeling?

Anyhow, awesome work, man, I really dig this.

Yeah, It is the same word rotated around. The more I look at this piece, the more happier I am with it, alhamdillah! :D

Heheh sorry.. gotta brush up on my (nonexistent) Arabic... what does it mean? =p

Don't worry about it - Alhamdulillah is an Arabic phrase meaning "Praise to God" or "All praise is due to God" :nod:

skinsvideos21 Featured By Owner May 25, 2010
Oh okay, it kinda sounded like it meant that anyway. I learnt some Arabic, woo! =P

I just remembered the Spanish word ''Ojalá''. Used for ''I wish/Let god'', I'm pretty sure it comes from Arabic.

Ooooo....there is a word called 'Insha'allah' which means that. It means God willing.
