This artwork presents the Big Bang as a proverbial drop, which tore through the level surface of the black darkness of non-existence, and the ensuing rippling (pattern repetition), which we scientifically know as the expansion of the Universe.
”The Heavens, We have built them with power. And verily, We are expanding it" [Quran (51:47)]
The turquoise heptagons symbolize mineral-rich space clouds and the recognition of “Hu” within all existence.
The deeper blue symbolizes water, both as a life-sustaining element and as pools of knowledge, connected to the pearl white tiles representing 24 of the 25 Prophets’ mentioned in the Holy Quran.
The six central triangular pearl white tiles represent:
Adam (A.S), the first man created by Allah
Ibrahim (A.S), “Khalilullah”, the friend of Allah, who built the Kaaba and to whom the Scrolls were revealed
Nuh (A.S), “Najiyullah”, the confidante of Allah, who built the Ark
Musa (A.S), “Safiyyullah” Allah’s distinguished slave, with whom He spoke directly and revealed the holy book Tawrat (Torah)
Daud (A.S), who was blessed with a melodious voice and bestowed the holy book Zabur (Psalms)
Eesa (A.S), “Ruhullah”, the Spirit of Allah, by His Will the Angel Jibril blew the Ruh of Eesa (A.S) in Mariam (R.A) without the need for a partner. Allah swt bestowed upon him the holy book Injil (Gospel)
The rose red hue represents “Habibullah”, the Beloved of Allah, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the Seal of the Prophets, to whom He swt revealed the Holy Quran, who was created as a mercy for all Mankind and was the first Creation.
“The first thing Allah created is my light.” Tirmidhi, Tafsir Surah 68; Hakim, II/492
“I was a prophet while Adam was between water (soul) and clay (body)” Manaqib Aal Abi Talib (A.S), vol.1, p.214
You see, as it was inscribed on the Throne of Allah swt even before the creation of the First Man, and before the construct of Time (as we know it), and the Universe which is infinitely expanding until the Day of Judgement, and even then, will adorn the pillars within Paradise as it has since before this realm we call “Reality” even existed:
