#light academia aesthetic

When I think of Muslim academia/da, I find that some element of cottagecore seeps in. Islam is intricately bound up with nature and having them be two separate aesthetics doesn’t make sense to me. For example, take a look at Islamic architecture, particularly Persianate - florals are intricately woven with geometric patterns. Math and astronomy entangled with gold and illuminated manuscripts. The edges of scrolls annotated with entwined branches. Even Arabic calligraphy takes on shapes of birds/animals/plants sometimes.

Islamic academia is aesthetically stunning and deserves its own category instead of conforming to Occidental boxes.

“I have grown to love secrecy. It seems to be the one thing that can make modern life mysterious or marvelous to us. The commonest thing is delightful if only one hides it.”
