Framed Calligraphic Panel | Who remember God standing, sitting, and lying upon their sides

SKU LH-P-021

Description of the "Who remember God standing, sitting, and lying upon their sides" Panel

Calligraphed masterfully in Perso-Arabic nastaliq script, this reproduction is of an incredible 20th-century Quranic panel. It consists of verse 191 from Surah al-Imran (Chapter of The House of Imran). The Quranic verse reads:
الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىَ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذا بَاطِلاً سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ 

Who remember God standing, sitting, and lying upon their sides, and reflect upon the creation of the heavens and the earth, “Our Lord, Thou hast not created this in vain. Glory be to Thee! Shield us from the punishment of the Fire".

Much has been said in tafsir literature about this profound verse. One should always remember God by the tongue until His remembrance reaches our hearts. Remembrance can come in many forms, whether it be through our presence in our prayers, reading the Holy Quran, dhikr, or contemplation. 
This verse indicates that one can meditate upon God through His creation and His Attributes and Qualities reflected in it, but not upon God’s Essence directly, since the Divine Essence can never be the direct object of meditation by limited human consciousness. Ahmad ibn Ajiba has stated that “Reflection (fikr) is the lamp of the heart. If it vanishes the heart has no illumination”.  Hasan al-Basri was also reported to have said, “If one’s words are not wisdom, they are vain. If one’s silence is not reflection, it is absent-mindedness. If one’s thought is not contemplation, it is play."
