Illustrations for ‘The Islamic Calendar’ book from IIPH

Here are some brand new illustrations from a new book I have just completed illustrating called ‘The Islamic Calendar‘ by International Islamic Publishing House:

This Islamic calendar (or Hijri calendar) is based on the phases on the moon rather than the movement of the sun.  Here’s an illustration of a group of Muslim kids observing the moon’s phases through a telescope!

Young Muslim kids looking at the new moon. Also, the monthly phases of the moon.

Dhul Hijjah is the month of Hajj!  And here’s an illustration of some young children making the tawaf around the ka’ba with full devotion!

Muslims celebrate ‘Eid twice a year:  ‘Eid ul Fitr at the beginning of Shawwal (at the end of Ramadan) and ‘Eid ul Adha on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah (after the Hajj).  Here’s some Muslim girls having fun on ‘Eid and wishing one another with the sunnah ‘Eid greetings: Taqabbal Allahu Minnaa wa Minkum (May Allah accept from us and from you!)

Eid is the time for celebration - 'Eid Mubarak everyone!

Jum’uah (Friday) is the best of all days!  How should Muslims spend Jum’uah?  Here’s an illustration to explain…

Here are some Muslim kids showing us how to spend our Jum'uah (Friday)

Men must attend congregational Jum’uah (Friday) prayers which include a khutbah (sermon).

The month of Muharram is an extremely virtuous month, full of blessings.  Many important events in Islamic history took place during the month of Muharram. The 10th of Muharram is called ‘Ashoora’ and Rasool Allah (SAW) recommended that Muslims should fast during this time as it was the same day on which Musa (AS) and Banu Israeel (Jews) were saved from Pharaoh by Allah.

The illustration below depicts some aspects of the month of Muharram… the sea splitting to show how Allah saved Banu Isra’eel and the water and dates illustrate the importance of fasting during ‘Ashoora.

Motivation Is…

How do you motivate yourself to face the day each morning?  Some blessed individuals just need to hear the words of their beloved Lord…  Here’s another little illustration I did for IIPH’s Facebook page.
