An attempt has been made to briefly depict various periods of the Prophet’s 63-year-old life in 6 paper-cutting arts. A depiction of these 6 periods in Paper Cutting Art is available in the form of 6 projects at tusifahmad.com.
All these artworks are cut from golden and black foil. Each of these 6 artworks presents a complete story and event.
The subject of the third artwork Prophet Muhammad PBUH-3 is Bayt al-Mu’mur. The literal meaning of Bayt al-Mu’mur is the house inhabited at all times. A house that is inhabited by the remembrance of Allah at all times. The location of Bait Al-Mu’mur is in the seventh heaven just above Bait Allah. In the interpretation of hadiths and verse number four of Surah Al-Tur, the commentators write that Bait al-Mu’mur refers to a house in the seventh heaven. The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) also met Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) in Bait al-Mu’mur in the seventh heaven who was sitting leaning against the wall of Bait al-Mu’mur. So in Muslim Sharif’s Hadith No. 411, it is said that with Jibreel (peace be upon him) when the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) When the Prophet ascended to the seventh heaven, he met Abraham there.
After a brief introduction to Bait al-Mu’mur, let’s move on to the subject, a brief interpretation of the third artwork.
The artwork shows the Baytullah (House of Kaaba) below and around it the Muslim Ummah performing Hajj, Umrah and worship. Because reciting this dua during the circumambulation of Hajj and Umrah is proven by hadiths and sunnah. Lord, so much good in this world and good in the hereafter, and we will be punished by the fire.
O our Lord, grant us good in this world and bless us with good in the hereafter and protect us from the punishment of Hellfire.
This prayer is also mentioned in verse 201 of Surah Baqarah. Therefore, an attempt has been made to show this dua in the shape of an oval, that is, Hajar Aswad. This means that the Muslim Ummah should kiss the Hajar Aswad and also love this favorite dua of the Holy Prophet. Do and we must include this prayer in our prayers
If the translation of this prayer is seen, a concept becomes very clear that in Dervishes and Sufism, which is the concept that only the Hereafter should be sought and they say that we do not care about this world. Those people should consider their belief that in this dua, all the good things of the world have been put first, for example, health, health of family members, abundance and blessings in halal sustenance, etc. are all the good things of the world. And after that, the blessings of the hereafter were kept that when there is health, the family is prosperous, and there is mental relaxation, then the blessings of the hereafter can be obtained by worshiping. Therefore, there is nothing wrong in asking for the good of this world and the hereafter.
Just above this prayer is shown the Bait al-Mu’mor. As mentioned earlier, Bait al-Mu’mur is a house in the seventh heaven. Flowers with two leaves are shown around Bayt al-Mu’mur, which refers to the light creations of Allah, the angels. Who are doing Tawaf of Bayt al-Mu’mur all the time. Muslim Sharif’s Hadith No. 411 states that seventy thousand angels enter Bait al-Mu’mur at a time and perform Tawaf. Those who enter once do not enter again because the number of angels for the worship of Allah Ta’ala is so great that the first ones do not come again. From here, it becomes more clear that if Allah Ta’ala had to worship Him alone, then Allah Ta’ala would not have lacked angels for worship. If a person describes the greatness and majesty of Allah, then the person has his own benefit in it. There is no difference in the majesty and magnificence of Allah Kareem if we do not perform worship.
Secondly, if we look at the current Corona situation, where the rest of the activities were suspended keeping in view the safety measures, the prayers in the mosques were also affected. Under the same security measures, when the Kaaba was closed for Tawaf, Umrah and worship, people were worried that Tawaf was closed. Believers should not be alarmed because it is enough for us to be comforted in the seventh heaven above. At all times seventy thousand angels are circumambulating Bait al-Mu’mur. Pray to Allah Ta’ala to protect us from all kinds of diseases and sufferings so that we can worship Allah Ta’ala in a better way with ease and health.
We pray to Allah Ta’ala to show us beautiful scenes. Oh Allah, we want to see goodness, don’t show us evil. Show us the scenes of your grace and light, after which we enter the circle of your mercy. Oh Allah, protect us from the evil of the enemy. Ameen.
