Natural is Beauty 
Spray Paint & Acrylic on (2) Canvases 
30 x 40 inches pair 
Nadia Janjua

Part of the "Let Me Show You Beautiful Things" painting series, this painting features Verse 195 from Chapter 2 of the Holy Qu’ran, “Do what is beautiful. God loves those who do what is beautiful.” It expresses the concept that by doing what is natural to our souls with sincerity established by a relationship to God (i.e. doing it purely for God’s sake), we do is what is beautiful.

----

The series, “Let Me Show You Beautiful Things” includes seven abstract paintings that blend an array of colors, three different paint mediums, and Arabic & English text to convey messages of the call for beauty as expressed in the Islamic faith. When we do what is beautiful, it is a gain to our own souls to conform to our own deepest nature. As it states in the Holy Qu’ran (17:7), “If you do what is beautiful, you do what is beautiful to your own souls, and if you do what is ugly, it is to them likewise.” God made all things beautiful, and this, precisely, is the source of inspiration from which the painting series arises.
