 Islamic art is often vibrant and distinctive,and unlike Christian art, Islamic art isn't restricted to religious work, but includes all the artistic traditions in Muslim culture. Its strong aesthetic appeal transcends time and space, as well as differences in language and culture.

This is because of common features in all Islamic art which give it a remarkable coherence, regardless of the country or the time in which it was created.
  
Some of the essentials of Islamic Art is the Calligraphy, it is considered a major art-form,also writing has high status in Islam since is a significant decoration for objects and buildings,Books are a major art form,People do not appear in specifically religious artgeometry and patterns are very important,Islamic art includes all Muslim art, not just explicitly religious art,it seeks to portray the meaning and essence of things, rather than just their physical form, crafts and decorative arts are regarded as having full art status,painting and sculpture are not thought of as the noblest forms of art.

We Muslim women are not different from Non-Muslim Women,We like all things feminine and beautiful and despite what other cultures and religions may think about us we are very fashionable, the only difference is perhaps we have a balance between what is permitted by Allah and what is forbidden since we Muslims are ruled by the Qur'an and the examples of the prophet (PBUH).

 There is a hadith of the Prophet Muhammad that says: "Allah is beautiful and he loves beauty."For Muslims, beauty has always been and will always be a quality of the divine,  Muslim Women put a big emphasis in decorating their homes, you should see how pleasant is to visit friends and see their own styles and Islamic traditions, but there is always something in common and that is the calligraphy and kind of art you will find in all homes including mine,something that is  easy to find and buy when you live in a Muslim Country like Egypt,but if you live in a non-Muslim country visit  Luxury Art: Heavens Islamic Words  page and enjoy traying to find whish of all the beautiful frames they have you may want to buy for your home.


For me a converted Muslim I found the Islamic decoration just fascinating, we are use to simple and minimalistic designs,so let me tell you a bit more about the meaning of Islamic Art



The Meaning and beauty
  The art of the Islamic world reflects its cultural values, and reveals the way Muslims view the spiritual realm and the universe.Art is the mirror of a culture and its world view.
For  Muslim, reality begins with and centers on Allah.
Allah is at the heart of worship and aspirations for Muslims, and is the focus of our lives.
So Islamic art focuses on the spiritual representation of objects and beings, and not their physical qualities.
This lets the artist, and those who experience the art, get closer to Allah.The Muslim artist does not attempt to replicate nature as it is, but tries to convey what it represents.
A common feature of Islamic art is the covering of surfaces covered with geometric patterns.Geometry This use of geometry is thought to reflect the language of the universe and help the believer to reflect on life and the greatness of creation.
So how is geometry seen to be spiritual?
  • Because circles have no end they are infinite - and so they remind Muslims that Allah is infinite.
  • Complex geometric designs create the impression of unending repetition, and this also helps a person get an idea of the infinite nature of Allah.
  • The repeating patterns also demonstrate that in the small you can find the infinite ... a single element of the pattern implies the infinite total.

The repeated geometric patterns often make use of plant motifs, and these are called arabesques. Stylized Arabic lettering is also common.
The use of patterns is part of the way that Islamic art represents nature and objects by their spiritual qualities, not their physical and material qualities.
< Islamic arts and crafts The integration of arts and crafts into everyday life was very much the norm in the traditional Islamic world.
The idea is that as Islam is integral to every part of a Muslim's life and makes it beautiful, so Islamic art should be used to make the things of everyday life beautiful.
The emphasis in Islamic art is on ornamentation rather than on art for art's sake.
