I have read your theme on Islamic Arts with great enthusiasm and I want to share with you just how moved I am by this thoughtful, well-written piece. I am an oriental carpet seller and have been a collector for many years. I have considered myself both knowledgeable and insightful in my understanding of Islamic arts and crafts, but today I am humbled, feeling pompously stupid in my two-dimensional, Western intellectual pride.
How silly I feel to only now become aware of the shallowness of my grasp on the creative impulse undergirding the arts and crafts of Muslims, focused as I have been on merely the decorative aspects of objects themselves as metaphors for the triumph of the individual over the sometimes harsh and cruel reality of being. While I may have considered it possible that a great carpet work could be the result of divine inspiration it never occurred to me that a carpetís beauty might come not from the inspired artistic, creative or ethnic genius of the maker , but from Islam itself.
Who authored this remarkable treatise?
I want to know if this theme will stay on your web site indefinitely or whether it is likely to be removed in the near future. If you plan to remove it, then I intend to print it and keep a copy on my bedstand to read and re-read with regularity.

Dear Brother / Sister,
As - salaam a laikum,
I would like to begin by commending you on your web site - it is truly one of the best that I have seen. Apart from the fact that there is information in abundance- the TAFSIR section is brilliant. I find it a treat to download on a daily basis tafsir per surah - the fact that I can download it straight on to my ipod is even better. Once I have completed downloading each one, then my true Ibadat for Ramadan will begin...
