I.I.T.Eyes feature

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 24, 2011, 2:38 AM


There is nothing strange when a Muslim makes a contribution for Islam or for Muslims. but when a non-Muslim does that, it raises feelings of admiration and respect among Muslims. and maybe raises eyebrows, confusion and questioning among many non-Muslims. throughout history, many non-Muslims expressed honest and positive opinions and thoughts about Islam. this expression takes different forms. here in deviantART, being an art community, it takes the form of drawing, photography and literature.

so, I'd like to show my appreciation, support and respect to our brothers and sisters in humanity who are not Muslims, by featuring their Islamic-related works in my journal here. I call it "Islam In Their Eyes feature" or "I.I.T.Eyes Feature" like the title of this journal reads.
This will also allow Muslims to know these people out there and appreciate their work (and who knows, maybe make new friends :D) these people who, in spite of being different from Muslims, having different faith, way of life, opinions... yet they chose to see Muslims as fellow human beings just like them. they chose to say no to ignorance and no to prejudice. this, in itself, deserves deep respect. especially that we are living in an age where many Muslims are suffering from misconceptions and discrimination and where tolerance and understanding are much needed in this world.



if you are a non-Muslim who did any Islamic-related work here in deviantART or if you know anyone who did so, feel free to post link to the deviation and I will check it. if it respects the rules below, I will add it to this journal.

Rules of submission:
a- The artworks have to be Islamic-related.
b- The artworks have to have a positive message. if not, they must not have a negative one.
c- Artworks that promote hate, terrorism, violence and misconceptions about Islam are NOT accepted. don't bother submitting them.
d- Any Artworks made to support the DMD are not accepted.
e- All links must be in deviantART. links outside the domain are not viewed.
f- The submissions could be journal entries, drawings, photography, articles or anything Islam-related. but it must be done/submitted by a non-Muslim.



I appreciate if my dear Muslim brothers and sisters would be kind and drop by these people's galleries and leave some warm friendly words of love and peace.

While most of my work is more mature, I do have this character piece of Ibrahim Saunders, the protagonist of a few of my fantasy stories. While I don't pretend to be the most knowledgeable person about Islam, I have a great respect for the religion, and will admit that it has had a profound influence on how I look at faith myself.

These are all really nice! This feature is a sweet idea. I'll keep my eye out for things to suggest! :)

Quick question - the rules say "Any Artworks made to support the DMD are not accepted". What is the DMD? I don't know if I've heard heard that term before.
