Les Prosternes (the Prostrated)

::: I just completed The Prostrated . Al hamdulillah this painting has elements I had been longing to express for the longest time so it was a true celebration of the joy of Salat (prayer).

The prostration position in Islamic prayer is one of the most moving experience the soul can journey through. Even though to many it may be considered as just a physical position, prostration is the moment when we are closest to Allah (swt), we shed our ego and the grace unfolds…

During his prayers alone, our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) used to stay in prostration for a long time and he would often shed tears. Allahu Akbar! :::
