Artist: Nadia Zeeshan

Description:

30 x 24 x1.5 inches (HxWxD)

Hand painted on Gallery wrapped canvas with acrylic paint and layered with golden and silver leaf. Textured using modeling paste and beach hand plucked from the shores of Lake Huron.

Concept:

This painting is inspired by the incredible resilience of Prophet Ayub/Job who endured terrible sickness and adversity but maintained his faith in God as he was tested.

The Arabic text reads:

Surah Al-Anbiyah "وَأَيُّوبَ إِذْ نَادَىٰ رَبَّهُ أَنِّي مَسَّنِيَ الضُّرُّ وَأَنتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ"

Translation:

"And Ayub, when he called to his Lord "Indeed adversity has touched me and you are the most merciful "" (Quran 21:83)

When God/Allah saw how his servant was grateful to him despite all his trials, he reversed Ayub's illness and granted him his health back.

Ayub /Job is a sacred figure and Prophet in not just Islam but Christianity and Judaism as well.  His story of patience and resilience is regarded with reverence by many of his believers.

This prayer offers solace and tranquility to those enduring hardship and a promise that God is with you where ever you are.
