HAI – Feed The Fasting

HAI - Feed The Fasting

When you have been fasting all day, staying away from food, drink and intimacy, one realises the greater human suffering across the world. In this commission I was asked to bring to life both the love of sharing ones breaking of the fast with others and the Muslims attachment to al-Masjid al-Aqsa in Jerusalem. The graphic depicts The Dome of the Rock with a series of table spreads awaiting guests to arrive and break their fasts as a community.

The commission also allowed me to share my passion of the Islamic Sacred Hadith heritage by translating one of Prophet Muhammad’s statements in which he said, “Whoever feeds a fasting person will have equal to their reward…” The honorific graphics after the words Abu Hurayrah and Messenger of Allah are Arabic texts which translate as, May God be pleased with him, and May the blessings of Allah and peace be upon him.
