Canvas/ acrylic colors
Technique & style:
I used small and medium brushes, medium brushes for filling the surface and small brushes were used for details.
In the background, I used different shades of green and painted it in a circular motion to give the blurry background effect.
I also added the well known sentence in Islam (Besm allah alrahman al raheem) to make it noticeable that this painting is reflecting an image about Islam.
For the people, I used the abstract technique. Also, I used different shades of brown and beige to show that they are of different races. I added a lot of colors to their clothes to add some enjoyment and happiness to the painting.
Racism is not allowed in Islam, for the Quran speaks of human equality in the following terms:
O mankind, we have created you from a male and a female and have made you into nations and tribes for you to know one another. Truly, the noblest of you with God is the most pious. Truly, God is All-Knowing, All-Aware.
Islam rejects certain individuals or nations being favored because of their wealth, power, or race. God created human beings as equals who are to be distinguished from each other only on the basis of their faith and piety.
One of the major problems facing mankind nowadays is racism.
In my drawing I represented how Islam ends this racism.
Inside the mosque, everyone is equal, no one bothers if you're a wealthy person or not, if you're black or white, African or Asian.
Islam forces everyone inside a mosque to stand side by side and follow the words of an ordinary Imam (and sometimes a poor Imam), forgetting about each other's races.
When there is equality, there is peace
