Islamic artwall hangings make for a wonderful gift that you can give someone you care for. An inspiring ayatfrom the Holy Quran written in a calligraphic style and framed can also serve as a spiritual reminder. If you are looking to buy Islamic wall art for the purposes of gifting, then the online marketplace offers a variety of calligraphic styles, materials, sizes, colours and frames to choose from.
But the most important aspect to keep in mind while gifting someone Islamic wall art is the verse written on it. Though each verse of the Quran is important, you can gift Islamic wall art with the verse that is most suitable to the occasion or to the relationship you have with the person you are gifting.
- Gift for Parents
The Quran has very clear verses that command us to be kind to our parents, and to obeytheir instructions so long as they do not go against the Message of Allah.
It commands us to soften our tone when we talk to them, especially when they reach old age. If we have to disagree with them, we must do so with humility. Because, when we were of tender age and dependent, they took care of us, worked hard and made sacrifices to ensure us a good living - by the Will of Allah.
There is a Quranic supplication for parents, mentioned in the 24th verse of the 17th chapter (Surah Al Isra): ‘Rabbirhamhumakamarabbaynisagheera’ (“Oh Lord! Bestow mercy on my parents as they took care of me when I was small.”)
Needless to say, the best gift one can give to parents is making the aforementioned dua in heart, and by being good to them. This is not to be done as a favour, but as a duty commanded by Allah.
And if one is planning to gift them, then one can frame the Quranic dua for parents written in a calligraphic style. It would likely bring them joy.
- Gift for newly wedcouples
Marriage is a very crucial aspect of life; it can be a source of solace, comfort and joy, or it could lead to misery and lifelong suffering. The Quran has specific instructions for men and women in order to lead a good married life:
‘"They (your wives) are a garment for you and you too are a garment for them."
- Chapter 2, Verse187
As a garment shields our bodies and covers physical injuries or defects, so must a husband and wife shield one another and cover each other’s faults from the world.
"And one of His signs is that He has created for you, spouses from amongst yourselves so that you might take comfort in them and He has placed between you, love and mercy. In this there is surely evidence (of the truth) for the people who carefully think."
- Chapter 30, Verse 21
A husband and wife should give each other comfort, love and mercy. Allah has, in fact, placed mercy and love between spouses, so that they can seek solace in one another.
The aforementioned ayatswritten in an artistic style and framed make for an excellent gift for a married couple.
Indeed, Islamic wall art hangings make for perfect gifts. If you are looking to buy Islamic wall art, youwould findan abundance of beautiful spiritual reminders which you can give to your loved ones.
