My Original handmade Painting
From Series: Deepen Thought.(Khiyal-E-Pinha’n)
(Based of Chughtai Style from his Artwork)
On the road that leads to the Beloved
Every stone is made of gold.
Every step we take brings knowledge to us.
Even what appears to be a mistake,
or an error,
Can bring us closer to purity and truth.
Every good intention,
thought and action
Guides the soul toward the Goal.
Every true word that is heard,
Every understanding received,
Every challenge met,
by his Grace,
Leads the traveler
Through the labyrinth
Of steps and tests
to the One
Who has left,
at every turn in the Road,
Signs of His Existence,
Clear signs showing the Way
That lead to Him.
Not only do our successes show us the way,
But even more deeply,
our apparent failures
Those moments in our journey
When we are most deeply humbled
And realize our limitations,
Realizing that every step we take
Is not due to our own power and will,
But occurs by the Grace of God.
The journey that leads to the Beloved
Is guided by His Love.
A Modern Contemporary art inspired by World famous artist Abdur Rahman Chughtai’s (1899-1975) Paintings.
My This Painting The Final Moment (Istighraq) is based on the Persian Calligraphic Poetry of Master Jallauddin Rumi”Q.S.A“. The poetic verse is from“Masaq-e-lakhnawi” by Master Rumi.
Soorat az Bey-Soorati Aamad Baroo’n
Baaz Shud In’naa Alei’heye Raaj-e-Oon
“A figure had emerged from the ”Figure less” (i.e.., Allah), and (after staying on the stage of transitory earthly life for a span of time ordained by Allah) had then gone back and rejoined Him at the appointed time”.
The words of master manifests the true inner state of the re-union of men of God with the Supreme Being. It can be properly understood and described only by those who are blessed with a knowledge of the experiences of spirit.Consequently here only those events connected with the passing away of Lovers and friends of Allah are being described.Which took place in this tangible world of outer circumstances, and were witnessed by the common people around them..
Mystic Vision of “The Final Moment”;
The State of Friend of God when he fully prepared for Final union with Beloved (God) can be explain as Istighraq. (A State of Complete Spiritual Absorption) and unconsciousness to ordinary world..Indeed these spells caused even greater stress and distress to Oliyas (Friends of God) than unusual. Although the real reason for this can be understood only by those who actually pass through such experience,it seems probable that the distress resulted from the commuting between two totally different worlds,is physical world and the world of spirit. The spirits of Friends and Lovers of God went through a state,before its departure from the physical frame and its embarking on its journey heavenward for eternal union with the “Companion On High”. In short I manifested in my painting the desire of a bride who surrenders to the beloved wish and departing from her parents place to meet her beloved.
The Color Palette and Technique
Water color is one of my favorite medium.I applied earth and warm tones on it as in the source and size of my painting is 14*21 inches. I never tried to revived that work but I focused to learn his style and painted it with my own technique. From childhood I am fan of Sir chughtai’s artwork first time i see his work when I was in 7th standard.. I regard him as my spiritual art teacher in many silent ways and I am thankful of him to provided his art to self learning students like me. Original work is sold but prints are available.
Hope you all will enjoy the journey of Love through”A message of hope and interstellar love from the Painting “Istighraq-The Final Moment” with the soulful poem by Sheikha Maryam Kabeer Faye From Journey Through Ten Thousand Veils.
