A phrase that is often proclaimed in conversations among Muslims, the phrase “Ma sha Allah (“as Allah has willed”), is perfect for every occasion. In it lies the secret to everything that one sees, hears, and experiences – all of it has been decreed by Allah Most High in beginningless eternality. Succinctly put, the first part of the phrase – Ma Sha – here is repeated 5 times around the last part of the phrase – Allah – in a perfect geometric pattern forming a pentagon shape around the sacred name Allah. The centerpiece is an excellent reminder that Allah Most High should be the center of every home, let alone the central point of one’s life. This artwork is a perfect piece to put on your front door, above any door, or your living areas.
