Istighraq-The Final Moment

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,

Every station,
by his Grace,
attained
Leads the traveler
Through the labyrinth
Of steps and tests

Surely,
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.

SPIRITUAL ELEMENT

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
Translation:
“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.

Enlightenment

My Original handmade Painting

From Series: A Journey From Self to The Self

——————-

Is it Your face that adorns this garden?
Is it Your fragrance that intoxicates this garden?
Is it Your Spirit that has made this brook a river of wine?
Hundreds have looked for You, and died searching in this garden,
Where You hide behind the scenes.
But this pain is not for those who come as lovers.
You are easy to find here.
You are in the breeze and in this river of wine.

SPIRITUAL ELEMENT

Enlightenment means rising above your current levels of lowliness: rising to the sky of emptiness to nothingness with meditation.For Sufi who follows path the one of meditation is concentration, consistently concentration of their outer and inner world.The entire universe in all its activity has been created through the concentration of God.when you observe around yourself you will notice that every being in the world is occupied consciously or unconsciously in some act of concentration. Good and evil are alike the result of concentration. The stronger the concentration, the greater the result; lack of concentration is the cause of failure in all things. For this world and the other, for material as well as spiritual progress, concentration to seek truth and enlightenment is most essential.Second most important motive in my painting is “realization of truth”..In this world many faiths and so many beliefs all have arisen from ignorance of man,wise is he who only truth conceives.A only wise man realizes that the fundamental basis of all religions and beliefs is One: Haq, or truth. The truth has always been covered by a turban and wrapped by a robe in mysticism. There have many meanings in spirituality but one is realization of truth that’s why the prophets and saints covered it as truth, in order to hide it from ignorant eyes, as yet too undeveloped to bear it in its naked form.

The Color Palette and Technique

This surrealistic art originally handmade custom painting with oil pastels on paper. The size of paper is 55cm*37cm.Color palette is based of both warm and cool tones. The original artwork and prints available.

Hope you all will enjoy the journey of Love through”A message of hope and interstellar love from the Painting “Enlightenment” with the soulful poem by Beloved Master Rumi”Q.S.A”

☼Love Desire☼

Love Desire Seher

Love Desire

My Original handmade Painting

From Series: Words of Love

—————–

My body and my mind
My body and my mind are in depression because.
You are not with me. .
How much I love You and want You in my house! .
When I hear people describe me as your bride I look .
sideways ashamed, .
because I know that far inside us we have never met. .
Then what is this love of mine? .
I don’t really care about food,
I don’t really care about .
sleep, .
I am restless indoors and outdoors. .
The bride wants her lover as much as a thirsty man .
wants water. .
And how will I find someone who will take a message to the Guest from me? .
How restless Kabir is all the time! .
How much he wants to see the Guest! .

SPIRITUAL ELEMENT

In Love every Lover’s soul goes through a state known as dark night…the painting concept is that which showed dark side of the senses.The soul speaks of the way it followed in its departure from love of both self and all things. Through a method of true mortification, it died to all these things and to itself. It did this so as to reach the sweet and delightful life of love with Beloved. And it declares that this departure was a dark night.this dark night signifies here purgative contemplation, which passively causes in the soul this negation of self and of all things.The soul states that it was able to make this escape because of the strength and warmth gained from loving its Bridegroom in this obscure contemplation. It emphasizes its good fortune in having journeyed to Beloved through this dark night. So great was the soul’s success that none of the three enemies (the world, the devil, and the flesh, which are always in opposition to the journey along this road) could impede it, for that night of purifying contemplation lulled to sleep and deadened all the inordinate movements of the passions and appetites in the house of sense.

The Color Palette and Technique

This contemporary art is based of female figure made with graphite and watercolors on paper. This is sold work of 2011 which Paper size is 27*39inches. I always complemented on my figurative arts by my my teachers and friends. The human anatomy have been one of my favorite subject to read and sketch  during my medical studies so I continued it with in my art practices and working more on it.

Hope you all will enjoy the journey of Love through”A message of hope and interstellar love from the Painting “Love Desire” with the soulful poem by Sufi Poet “Saint Kabir Daas”.

♫Rose Mystic♫

Mystic Rose Devian Label

Rose Mystic

My Original handmade Painting

From Series Light of The Infinite
(Kahkeshani-Az-Noor)

There is a secret path to the heart
winding through a Rose,
where deep between
the layers of rosiness,
a Lover can find the way
to the embedded clues of the truth,
hidden there by the warriors of Love.

There is no battle cry, no army,
no weapons, no flag to carry,
for the wayfarer must enter
the deep jungle of fragrance
and alluring silken beauty
to find the heart within the rose.

Enter the rose with Rumi
(Murshad- Spiritual Master)
and he will show you the way,
spinning you around and dancing
you into laughter and wonder.

The Mystics know the way of the heart
and guard the secrets well.
No map exists,
and no words can describe
the alchemy of the journey
that turns you into light.

Fall out of your well laid plans,
and fall deeply into Love.
Love (Ishq) will meet you inside the Rose,
and you will awaken
in the beauty of your heart.

SPIRITUAL ELEMENT

“Rose Mystic” a one more painting based of high state and manifestation of the spiritual journey to sacred heart-land like “Aromatic Silence”. The word for heart in Arabic is Qalb and literally means that which fluctuates; the heart expands and contracts, and even in its purified condition passes through many states.Spiritual Heart that isn’t mean by biological heart which pump the blood into body. We can say spiritual heart or Qalb as “an unseen world of qualities”.. Every one is created by two things. One is body and outer appearance (zahir) which we can see with our eyes. The other are inner forces (batin). This is the part we cannot see, but we can know with our insight. For the example as my painting based of “The Rose” (often you will see “rose flower” in Sufi scriptures because of its mysterious elements)  we can see beautiful color and petals of it but we can not see the fragrance of it we only can feel that fragrance from inside through our breath and nervous system which collaborate with the human body to sense that. Same as with the Qalb (Spiritual Heart) we can realize that through our inwardness  and the reality of our existence is in our inwardness (batin, unconscious). And everything we sense is a servant of our inward heart(Spiritual Heart, Batini Qalb). In Short The outer world of physical existence is perceived through the physical senses, through a nervous system that has been refined and purified by nature over millions of years. We can only stand in awe of this body’s perceptive ability. On the other hand, the mystery of the inner world is perceived through other even subtler senses. It is these “senses” that allow us to experience qualities like yearning, hope, intimacy, or to perceive significance, beauty, and our participation in the unity.When our awareness is turned away from the world of the senses, and away from the field of conventional human thoughts and emotions, we may find that we can sense an inner world of spiritual qualities, independent of the outer world.Our modern languages lack precision when it comes to describing or naming that which can grasp the qualities and essence of this inner world. Perhaps the best word we have for that which can grasp the unseen world of qualities is “Qalb” And what we understand by the word “Spiritual Heart” is an intelligence other than intellect, a knowing that operates at a subconscious level. Every intellect know the anatomical position and structure of heart.. But about spiritual heart only mystic know who journeying spiritual path under guidance of living spiritual master(Murshad) because only those Masters knows the secret path to spiritual heart who already passed through their path to reach that sacred land.

The Color Palette and Technique

This spiritual Intuitive art originally handmade custom painting with acrylic medium on canvas… The size of canvas is 29″*23″ inches.As usual colored inspired by the red rose.

Hope you all will enjoy the journey of Love through”A message of hope and interstellar love from the Painting “Rose Mystic” with the soulful poem by Sufi Poet “Whispering Mystic”.

Dig Whirling Deviant Label

Spring Giddiness-DIG2

Series: Magical Magnificence

————

Tell me, O Love,
Who is more elegant,
You or this vast garden of Yours?

Shine, O moon,
You are an inspiration
to all who look upon the night sky.

Sour will turn to sweet,
Blasphemy will turn to truth,
Thorn bushes will turn to jonquil,
A hundred bodies will spring to life
with one breath of yours.

You place doors in the sky.
You place wings on the human heart.
You enchant every mind
and bewilder both worlds.

THE ARTWORK AND SPIRITUAL ELEMENT

The digital mix media composition entitled by Spring Giddiness based of Sufi Whirling (Sufi Dancing)or Dervishe Dance.For the Sufi, knowledge is metaphysical, and it can be attained only through practice and not through thinking.  The Sufi symbolically turns towards the truth, abandons the ego, and arrives at the Perfect.Slowly, as the body sways consciousness also changes, the mind assumes a freedom from the earthly bondage. With this ecstatic dance the Sufi Dancer enters the trance forgetting his Self and becoming united with the Divine Lover.The Sufi unites with the beloved, and they become the instrument for the admiration of creation filled with passion. Love is the only way to truly experience the beauty of the world.  In the ritual dance where consciousness penetrates the body and the mind, the lover joins with the beloved, the dance becomes the dance of Divine Love.

Hope you will enjoy the journey of Love through”Spring Giddiness”. A message of hope and interstellar love from the visionary with the soulful poetic verses by Master Jalaluddin Rumi”Q.S.A”, excerpted from Coleman Barks.

♫Enigma of Light♫

Enigma of Light Lab

Enigma of Light

My Original handmade Painting

From Series Light of The Infinite
(Kahkeshani-Az-Noor)

I Don’t Make Art.
The Art Reveals on My Heart
People Says
I am an artist
But reality is this
I am just obedient of my Lord

I Don’t Make Art
It Reveals on My Heart

My hands are tie with unseen strings
My fingers dance on canvas
When my heart sings
My drum of heart plays by fingers of my Lord
He sends me notes
I only delivers and pass

I Don’t Make Art
It Reveals on My Heart

People asks me reasons
of flowing blues,reds and rainbow masons
Familiar faces with different seasons
There is only one reason
I clearly expressed and marks
Unknown opens in me Unknown bars

I Don’t Make Art
It Reveals on My Heart

My fingers are not heritage of mine
these are only for healing of others peace hymn
Not mention if i cares about the sign
My fingers work like brushes
become pen sometimes
and flows only Love’s wine
But not all time works alien
What my heart feels
I only sorts

I Don’t Make Art
It Reveals on my heart

The light of hue of my Beloved
By which my soul reflect colors
Travels through my heart
Through my mind
Through my all
Not able to show you
Astonishing light coming from dark
But this Art of Art

I Don’t Make Art
It Reveals on my heart

SPIRITUAL ELEMENT

My art series “Light of The Infinite (Kahkeshani-Az-Noor)” is another multi project based series.”Enigma of Light”is the manifestation of a Sufi being a creative and serving entity.It is one of my very first experience in the series as an artist after join the spiritual path(according sacred law). Before 2013 when I was not under supervision of my spiritual master I did many artworks I enjoyed them very much too but truth is “Enigma of Light” happened me as a milestone when I realized that we do not make art when it happens with heart.After having this experience I felt a new life in me being a artist and realized that in past I worked like a robot or may be like a handcraft maker. It is obvious that every artist experience timelessness in h/er art during work.. But I realized to be present moment by moment during the painting.For the example at any point in time, if one focuses only in the moment (as the only time that exist for real is the moment, is now) if one intends to live with awareness, moment to moment.There are three noble etiquette(adab) with which one can engage with the moment:Creative, Service and Stillness.The first and second mode is in the arena of doing and the third is ideally in the arena of non-doing, and more of being.From one perspective it also need deliberate will power in the beginning to be in prayer and contemplation or even to intend to be still. Every time we enter into prayer, meditation in heart-centeredness-our spirit advances-so in that sense, some seekers call it walking, walking of the spirit towards divine proximity.Apart from these three modes: creative, service and stillness, there is of course another by default mode, which is being in forgetfulness. Forgetfulness of what? Forgetfulness of our own self, forgetfulness of the Divine. All of these three modes are needed in life being a human. Instead of heedlessness, a true Seeker or Sufi uses his moments and breath wisely. A true seeker is also mindful of his or her death, certain about the death that must and will come to each one of us. And a seeker know very well that a new reality awaits beyond death and death is just a stepping stone to a new reality.a Glorious dawn with a galaxy Rise.
This only gives the seeker more reason to be mindful of each moment.For a true Sufi, death, being the polar opposite of life, is exactly necessary as a reminder that life is precious,To say YES to Beloved in everything that comes from Him.This was the teaching which I had from my painting “Enigma of Light” and there is a message for the others too “Be creative like you entered in the prayer like drunken lover and Serve the humanity like a true god self.

☼Aromatic Silence☼

Aromatic Silenece WP

Aromatic Silence-

My Original handmade Painting

From Series:Journey from Self to The Self.

———————————-

I Am…………………….

Until the Whole world is free,
Until the Mind falls into the Heart,
It is one thing to knowing
Another to Know,
Another to Be.
Liberate from Illusions..

without it
No true enlightenment.
No awakening.
No freedom
No Awareness
Nothing great happened..

Remember that
I am Completeness.
Not that which is alive,
But life Itself.
I Am
The Infinite Eternal that I Am..!!

SPIRITUAL ELEMENT

My art series “Journey from self to the self” is based of self realization.When a Sufi meditate S/he do not meditate for self satisfaction but only to self realization.In the “Aromatic Silence” I manifested my desire to convey a state of person in a high place of realization. The rose petal’s fall shows the tale of a realized heart and the journey to that sacred heart-land.The spiritual journey begins with soul’s yearning and partaking in a mysterious fragrance that appear from nowhere. Before deep surrender, before enlightenment of the soul it has many desires, many innumerable ‘goals’ to achieve which all reduce to One desire (for God) and One goal (to Reach at the Beloved) and there the soul becomes “pleased”, “pleasing” to its Lord.There through the journey the soul realizes the mysterious fragrance was coming from “no other place” but from within and it was the Glance of Grace which enabled to discover this bewildering reality. God Calls in Kalaam Allah “Ya ayyatuhal nafsul mutma’inna, irji’i ila rabbika, raziyatan marziya”.“O you, pleased soul, come back to your Lord, satisfying and satisfied”.

 

The Color Palette and Technique

Earth tones to give a warmth with dry pastels on paper which size is 15*22 inches. Originally made by finger tips…The artwork commissioned and now available in prints.

Hope you all will enjoy the journey of Love through”A message of hope and interstellar love from the Painting “Aromatic Silence” with the soulful poem by Poetess Sufiya Deepika Singh a member of Markaze Tasawwuf (Center of Sufism-A world Sufi Organization)

MusicDivine 2Flute By Seher

Music DivineDIG2

Series: Magical Magnificence

————————

Listen to the story told by the reed,
of being separated.
“Since I was cut from the reed bed,
I have made this crying sound.
Anyone apart from someone he loves
understands what I say.
Anyone pulled from a source
longs to go back.
At any gathering I am there,
mingling in the laughing and grieving,
a friend to each, but few
will hear the secrets hidden..

THE ARTWORK AND SPIRITUAL ELEMENT

The digital mix media and collage composition entitled by Music Divine#2.I manifested in vision my desire of flute remembrance. Flute are the oldest musical instruments found which creates a powerful bond between a Lover and Beloved.It carries many spiritual meaning.It is a piece of Bamboo with holes (Flute).It does not have have any strings or any extra fittings attached to it.All Bamboo pieces are not becoming flutes.Some which are fortunate only become flutes.First the pulp inside is completely to be removed and the body must also suffer the pain when the holes are made by the maker(God)then alone it can become a Flute and give melodious music of all sorts.Similarly the Human body needs no extraneous fittings to spiritually progress.(To reach the lips of Musician like-Karishna). First by constant meditation the ego shall perish.In the whole process the body must bear the sufferings of tests and bear with them.Then alone one may become a flute like being.

Hope you will enjoy the journey of Love through”Music DivineDIG2. A message of hope and interstellar love from the visionary with the soulful poetic verses from The Reed Flute’s Song by Master Jalaluddin Rumi”Q.S.A”, excerpted from Coleman Barks’ translation in The Essential Rumi.

Eternal Flame

My Original handmade Painting

From Series: Light of The Infinite- Kehkashani-Az-Noor-

O flame of living love,
That Dost eternally
Pierce through my soul with so consuming heat,
Since there’s no help above,
Make thou an end of me,
And break the bond of this encounter sweet.
O burn that burns to heal!
O more than pleasant wound!
And O soft hand,
O touch most delicate,
That Dost new life reveal,
That Dost in grace abound,
And, slaying,
Dost from death to life translate!
O lamps of fire that shined
With so intense a light,
That those deep caverns where the senses live,
Which were obscure and blind,
Now with strange glories bright,
Both heat and light to his beloved give!
With how benign intent
Rememberest thou my breast,
Where thou alone abidest secretly;
And in thy sweet ascent,
With glory and good possessed,
How delicately thou teachest love to me!

SPIRITUAL ELEMENT

The flame denotes love divine is because love in its first origin is nothing else than holy fire and flame from the Lord as a sun. It is the fire or flame of this sun which gives the being of life to every man and it is the vital fire itself which fills the interiors of man with heat, as can be seen from love, for in proportion as love increases with man,he grows warm, and in proportion as love decreases, he grows cold.As God appeared via a bush holy fire to the Divine Messenger Mousa, upon him be peace.The holy flames of the burning bush were yellow, which is the first colour in which light appears to created beings,like the rays of the sun.And the spiral represents the divine feminine, the womb, fertility and life force energy aswell.The Spiral is a sacred symbol that reminds us of our evolving journey in life.

The Color Palette and Technique

Psycadalic art based of warm colors yellow, red and orange with highlights of white and shadows of black.Originally handmade with acrylic medium merged well to give a quality reflected surface on canvas.Which size is 29″*23″ inches.I love paint spirals thats why mostly paintings of mine are based of symbols of universal pattern of growth and evolution. The artwork is available and ready for place and Heal.

Hope you will enjoy the journey of Love through”Eternal Flame“. A message of hope and interstellar love from the Painting .With the soulfull poem by Arthur Symons.
