This is an Islamic background theme page, the design is based on universal images that evoke thoughts of the Islamic religion...the minaret and the crescent moon.  Islam's calendar is lunar based, therefore major holidays such as Ramadan andEid ul-Fitr commence at the visual observance of the first sliver of moon after the dark of the moon.  The minaret is associated with the Islamic call to prayer (Adhan).  

Above you see how a web site title could look with the title graphic.  In the zip file (below) you will find a blank title image of the minaret and crescent moon for you to insert a web page title on.  If you don't have a graphic program capable of doing that, e-mail me and I will do it for you as time allows.   Above you can also see the suggested method to display top of the page navigation.  The links are easily inserted between the silver Islamic borders with simple HTML.   Below you will find the graphic divider, e-mail button and crescent moon bullet designed for this page.  There is also a navigation set of graphics for the bottom of the page that you could use if appropriate.

bulletMinarets or towers were originally used as torch-lit watchtowers, for example in the Great Mosque of Damascus; hence the derivation of the word from the Arabic nur, meaning "light."

bulletThe Islamic holiday of Eid ul-Fitr marks the end of the fasting period of Ramadan and the first day of the following month, after another new moon has been sighted.  Eid ul-Fitr means the Festival of Breaking the Fast, it is a joyous celebration.  Food is donated to the poor (‘Zakat al-Fitr’), everyone puts on their best, preferably new, clothes, and communal prayers are held in the early morning, followed by feasting and visiting relatives and friends.  The prayer is two rakaahs only, and it is an optional prayer as opposed to the compulsory 5 daily prayers.

bulletIn a practical sense, minarets are also used for natural air conditioning.  As the sun heats the dome, air is drawn in through open windows and up and out of the shaft, thereby causing a natural ventilation.
