Our Earth: Embracing All Communities

My project “Our Earth: Embracing All Communities” is almost complete now. I have done 40 paintings inspired from 40 verses from the Quran that guide us to live ecologically. I am grateful to East Bay Community Foundation for a fair amount of grant and my art patrons and collectors for matching the grant too. I am grateful to my friend Dr. Basma Abdelgafar for her translations of the verses and beautiful commentary in English for each verse. Her scholarly explanations enhance my works and present a beautiful description of the verses for even a lay person. I am also grateful for introductory essays written by Imam Zaid Shakir, Daisy Khan and Afra Jalabi. The book is in the designing stage and now I am ready to go into the publication.
