Quranic Infographics: A Collection of Illustrations Inspired by the Qur'an - Default Title

This hardcover, full-color book is a collection of illustrations inspired by verses of the Qur'an. The artist has employed distinctly different art styles to present various topics including ethics and morality, history, and law in Islam. From ancient Egyptian Art, stained-glass, and architectural isometric drawings, each piece has been thoughtfully composed to effectively communicate the Qur'anic message to all audiences. About The Author Mahdi Tabatabaei Yazdi grew up in a family of devout Muslims. He was always encouraged to practice his faith and follow his passion as an artist. As a result, his early childhood was spent making drawings with meaningful stories and messages behind them. As his exposure to the wider world of art increased, he was faced with the reality that even in his religious society, art represented many aspects of human life – except religion. Therefore, as an artist inspired by Islam, he chose to communicate his faith through his artwork. “I believe art is a language that everyone appreciates despite what they believe. It is linked with the human instinct, and the human instinct is created by a divine power that is full of beauty.” – Mahdi Mahdi has a bachelor’s degree in architecture which reflects in his artwork. After completing his formal education, he started out as an illustrator of short comics and soon thereafter, founded SalamComics. He works with a brilliant team of local illustrators producing exclusive products for his clients. Mahdi has devoted his life to building bridges between communities through the language of art.

The African and Middle Eastern World, 600-1500 / Edition 1 - Hardcover

The history of the African and Middle Eastern world is, to a large extent, the story of a religion-Islam-and how it claimed millions of followers across empires and kingdoms. First proclaimed by the Prophet Muhammad in the seventh century, Islam quickly spread, through trade and conquest, from the Arabian Peninsula to vast sections of Asia and Africa and even to parts of Europe. The cast of characters in this story is fascinating: from the Prophet himself to Abu Bakr Muhammad ar-Razi, a Persian physician who compiled a multivolume medical encyclopedia; Mehmed II, an Ottomon sultan who conquered Constantinople and brought the Byzantine Empire to an end; Mansa Musa, a West African emperor who distributed gifts of gold all along the route to Mecca; and Ibn Battuta, a Moroccan Berber whose travels through the Islamic world in the 14th century covered 75,000 miles. The pages of The African and Middle Eastern World tell not only about these figures and many others but also about Islamic principles and laws, the religion's different branches (including the Sunnis and Shiites), and the widely varied geography and cultural practices of this world. Also covered are people like the Shona of Southern Africa, who remained outside of Islam's long reach. Numerous primary sources-including excerpts from an eighth-century biography of Muhammad, "The Tale of King Sinbad and the Falcon" from The Thousand and One Nights, and a story about leadership from the West African oral tradition-further illuminate this history.
