Live life with Ihsaan... “It is that you should serve Allah as though you could see Him, for though you cannot see Him yet He sees you.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim) This is the definition Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) gave for the word ‘Ihsaan’ . Literally the word Ihsaan means ‘excellence’ and ‘beauty.’ Every act done with the consciousness of God is excellent and everything in which you can perceive the Maker is beautiful. My name is Sabeen Mansoori and I seek a life of ‘Ihsaan’ through my art and my writing. Art for me is an act of worship. It is the manifestation of my search to find God through His Words and through the sacred script I see etched across the Universe. In my paintings, as in my mind, the words of the Quran and the physical world merge. Sometimes the words appear on the landscape and sometimes the landscape appears in the words. Occasionally I paint or sketch the interior or exterior of a mosque, recognizing the spiritual beauty apparent in stone.
