Words of the Wise: Reflection & Art Exploration

 

From generation to generation, nothing is left behind more than words. In our journey of life, hearing the wisdom of those who came before helps us to live in an informed, inspired, and insightful way. 

Join us for a 2 month art journey as we expose our hearts to great words of wisdom. Through guided step-by-step drawing and mixed media art, we will deepen our relationship to the words of the Qur'an, hadith, and sayings of the scholars and those sincere to God. Every week we will begin with a presentation of the quote,  details about the source of the quote, along with biography or context, and time for reflection and insight to the meanings.

Quotes we will study:

Week 1: "He has always been kind to me." - Qur'an

Week 2: "He is with you wherever you are." - Qur'an

Week 3: "A person is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbor is hungry."

Week 4: "Be like a stranger in this world or one passing through." - Hadith

Week 5: "Loving one another is half of wisdom." - Ali ibn Abi Talib

Week 6: "Taking pains to remove the suffering of others is true generosity." Abu Bakr As-Saddiq

Week 7: "Silence is the best remedy for anger." Uthman ibn Affan

Week 8: "There are two virtues that facilitate on the path to God: Knowledge & love" - Imam Abu Hasan Al-Shadhili
