Light Upon Light 2021

One of the flagship events of knowledge 1st and extremely popular among the British Muslim communities with Special Guests speakers such as the renowned Mufti Menk among many.

My final concept art being one that focused largely around the verse in the Qur’an, towards the end of Surah Al-Hashr (59: 21)

لَوْ أَنزَلْنَا هَـٰذَا ٱلْقُرْءَانَ عَلَىٰ جَبَلٍ لَّرَأَيْتَهُۥ خَـٰشِعًا مُّتَصَدِّعًا مِّنْ خَشْيَةِ ٱللَّهِ ۚ وَتِلْكَ ٱلْأَمْثَـٰلُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ
