This is an Islamic background theme page, the design is based on the
photograph of a lovely mosque and the silhouette of a woman in a burqa
(or possibly abaya)
passing it. All elements of the Islamic graphics on this page are
based on portions of the photograph. I suggest using a
cream colored font as shown.
Above you see a title graphic 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. Below you will
find the graphic divider, which is a line from the Koran that is in
tile on the mosque. The bullet features a tile with
calligraphy and was designed for this page. The
buttons are based on geometric tile designs on the mosque and
specifically designed for this Islamic themed page. All graphic
elements are linked for this site so that
you can navigate through it.
art traditionally uses a mixture of calligraphy, geometric and floral
designs because of a prohibition on the portrayal of the human
form. Therefore, an important expression of Islamic art is
architecture, particularly that of the mosque (four-iwan and
hypostyle). For most Muslims, the best artwork that
can be created by man for use in the mosque is artwork that displays
the underlying order and unity of nature.
Muslims believe that the Islamic holy book, the Qur'an, and the
collected traditions of the life of Muhammed, or hadith, require both
men and women to dress and behave modestly in public. However, this
requirement, called hijab, has been interpreted in many different ways
by Islamic scholars (ulema) and Muslim communities.
burqa (also transliterated burkha, burka or burqua) is an enveloping
outer garment worn by women in some Islamic traditions for the purpose
of cloaking the entire body. It is worn over the usual daily
clothing (often a long dress or a shalwar kameez) and removed when the
woman returns to the sanctuary of the household.
The above title bar and
buttons use the font "Mercator Regular"
