Islam design sample title


        This is an Islamic motif  theme page.  I was inspired by the geometric tiles, Arabesque designs and the henna patterns (Mehndi or Hina) many Islamic women use to decorate their hands and feet at the end of Ramadan and for festivals such as Eid ul-Fitr.   Green was used as the predominant color for this web set because it  is given great importance in Islam firstly because it was the color of the banner of Muhammed (pbuh).

        Above you see a title graphic and how a web site title might look in it.  A blank graphic can be found in the .zip file (below) 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.  This is a very flexible page, suitable for both commercial and non commercial use.  Navigation can easily be placed in the side border as shown...via graphics or simple linked text.  Below you will find the graphic dividers and bullets designed for this page.  There is also a navigation set of graphics for the bottom of the page that you could use if appropriate.

Islam web set bullet Green is the color of joy success and happiness.  Arabic has a huge vocabulary for the different shades of green.  Green is extensively in the Qur'an, throughout the language of theology, and is predominant in literature and classical poetry.
Islam web set bullet There is great similarity between arabesque artwork from very different geographic regions.   The similarities are so pronounced, that it is sometimes difficult for experts to tell where a given style of arabesque comes from.  The reason for this is that the science and mathematics that are used to construct Arabesque artwork are universal.
Islam web set bullet There are two modes to arabesque art.  The first recalls the principles that govern the order of the world.  In the first mode, each repeating geometric form has a built-in symbolism ascribed to it.  For example, the square, with its four equilateral sides, is symbolic of the equally important elements of nature: earth, air, fire and water.  Without any one of the four, the physical world, represented by a circle that inscribes the square, would collapse upon itself and cease to exist.  The second mode is based upon the flowing nature of plant forms.  This mode recalls the life giving feminine nature.
Islam web set bullet The Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) dyed his beard red using henna and his Caliphs adopted this practice.  Fatima, Muhammed’s (pbuh) daughter, adorned her hands in mehndi.  The use of henna and mehndi by the Prophet insured its place in history and its popularity and acceptance among the Muslim people.
