The Peace Spreader, Flower Design
The Peace Spreader, Flower Design is inspired by the teachings of prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him).
The Hadith (teaching) reflects the value of spreading peace through verb and action. The standard greeting in Islam is Assalmu'alaikum "السلام عليكم" (Peace be upon you), is used in most contexts, formal and informal, when saying "Hi" and "Goodbye". Also, the peace greeting is the same grammatically regardless of age, gender, and class. In a world full of war and hate, it's nice to say to your fellow human "Peace be upon you".
The Arabic calligraphy writing "أفشوا السلام بينكم" was translated literally into "Spread peace among yourselves". This is part of a larger Hadith that states that one would only be a true believer, if they loved one another. To show that love, one must greet people with peace.
Arabic writing is usually viewed with suspicion and fear as many people associate it unjustifiably with terrorism. Thus, through showing the beauty of Arabic writing and Arabic calligraphy via printing it on hippie T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, tank tops, mugs, canvas, tote cotton bags, and mouse pads; we hope to change the perception of Arabic writing towards admiration and appreciation.
