This is an Islamic background theme page, the design is based on the
beautiful calligraphy of Islam. The calligraphy focuses on the
word from the Koran translated as
"paradise," the concept of "heaven" to those of Islamic faith.
Islamic calligraphy is a method of artistically expressing the divine
and has developed into a highly elaborate art form because the Islamic
faith disallows "graven images." I suggest using a brown colored
text as shown.

is a venerated form of Islamic art because it provides a link between
the languages of the Muslims with the religion of Islam. The
holy book of Islam, the Qur'an, has played an important role in the
development and evolution of the Arabic language, and by extension,
calligraphy in the Arabic alphabet. Proverbs and complete
passages from the Qur'an are still active sources for Islamic
calligraphy. The Arabic alphabet consists of 28 letters and
18 different forms of writing.
descriptions of paradise (Jannah) are mentioned in significant detail
in the Qur'an, hadith, and traditional exegeses. Paradise is
described as surrounded by eight principal gates, each level generally
being divided into a hundred degrees. The highest level is
known as firdaws (sometimes called Eden). It will be entered
first by Muhammad (pbuh), then those who lived in poverty, and then the
most pious. Entrants will be greeted by angels with
salutations of peace.
