Sidra tul Muntaha

Friday, 15 May 2009

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

I was reading a a sufi's version of God, life beyond the Universe and heaven and one description inspired me to sketch out an interpretation.

The author spoke about a heavenly tree, bordering the edge of comprehensibility as a signpost leading to God. This tree in arabic is called 'Sidra tul Muntaha'; immensely tall, covered in gems, leaves the size of planets, its roots bursting into the 4 famous rivers - Kafoor, Salsabeel, Kauther and Tasneem.

Well, this was my depiction - still incomplete...


I'm hoping to silk paint or print this on a huge canvas around 3-4m in length.
