as arabs, we see little to no representation in media and when there is, it's often offensive caricatures and stereotypes. we can't fix the world with one art tutorial, but educating more artists will hopefully make a difference.
most importantly: if you have a question about the arab world, or arabic culture, ask an arab!
arabs feel free to add onto this, nonarabs please reblog!
Ramadan. The Month of Mercy. The Month of Forgiveness. The Month of Change. The Month of the Qur‘an. The Month of Blessings. Ramadan is just around the corner. People who are preparing only for this Holy Month, excited and full of anticipation. Families who meet again after a long time. Prayers together, more than before. There’s harmony in everything. It’s the Month when the shayateen are chained in fetters and when Allah’s Mercy is greater than ever. The Month in which each action is rewarded multiple times. The Month in which sometimes the smallest changes have the greatest effect. This Month is an opportunity for inner reckoning, for self-reflection. Deal with yourself, reflect on your heart, on your Imaan, before Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala does. Ramadan Kareem 🌙 –soulflowrs
