Think and Reflect about God, any where and everywhere, also when you photograph, because in God's creations are God's signs. So reflect and come to peace. Muslims believe in all the prophets that Jews and Christians believe in because in reality all the prophets confirmed each other in the same message - That there is no God (Arabic for god: ilah) but the One God (Allah). Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the seal of the prophets and his message was the same, his invitation was to a way of life. So read the Quran, the revealed word of God, and also find in the example of the Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) life and sayings the guidance that leads to God. All Praise is for Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Kind - for Allah is the inescapable Truth and to Allah we shall all return. God's signs are in the creations around us for those who reflect. So Praise Allah for Allah (The One God) is the most deserving of Praise!!:)

I begin in the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Kind:
The Holy Quran:
Surah (Chapter) 67: Al- Mulk (The Kingdom)
Verses 1 - 4:
1. Blessed be He who holds the (reins of) Kingship in His hand,
who has power over everything,
2. Who created death and life in order to try you,
to see who of you are best of deed
He is all-mighty and forgiving,
3. Who created the seven skies one above the other.
Do you see any disproportion
in the creations of Ar-Rahman? (The Beneficent)
Turn your eyes again
Do you see any fissures?
4. Turn your eyes again and again.
Your gaze turns back dazed and tired.

Hi! My Name is Murtaza Saeed. I have been an art student from very young on. Left Art academically, but still have a very strong attachment to it. I'd like to share some of my photos here online and am grateful for this website for offering such a platform for photographers. I live in Lahore, Pakistan. I am a Muslim and hope one of the books you read this year will be the Holy Quran. Certainly as photographers or as hobbyists as I am, we bear witness to the fact, that our eyes turn back again and again, and tired though we may get, we can not claim that our last photograph captured the last of God's great creations. All praise is for God.
