Sacred Naalain of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ with Holy Ka’aba.
The wonderful art panel is a recreation of a late 1700s or early 1800s outline of a traditional depiction of the Prophetic Sandal with its well-known pointed form. The original painting was created using body color (gauche) and is located in illustrated Maghrebi manuscript.
The Naalain encompasses a diagram of the Holy Ka'aba and the Maqam Ibrahim. A geometric interlocking square design is located at the mid-foot section. The outline of the sandal is bordered with prayers in white Maghrebi script reserved against a blue ground. The spandrels with geometric Kufic squares are inscribed with the phrase 'baraka Muhammad', meaning 'the blessings of Muhammad' and contain polychrome floral illumination.
