99 Names of Allah Series of Paintings by Art Noor, Acrylic On Canvas, 190cm x 140cm

First exhibited at  Art Noor's Solo Exhibition - "ASMA' at Dubai Mall.                    (May 16 - June 14, 2018)

Al Jabbar -The Compeller is one of the 99 names of Allah - which is also His Divine attribute. More details about this name are here.

This painting depicts three letters  ( j -b- r )of the Arabic root of the divine name, not in a connected script from but the individual letter which are held together, as though by a mysterious force.  Since this divine attribute also means - The One who repairs, reforms and completes. The One who irresistibly compels things to be set aright.

For Introspection, gravity is an invisible force which emanates from the earth and pulls everything towards it. It compels objects to be drawn towards it. This kind of forces is everywhere in the universe, which keep objects at a regulated distance from one another. Same is the case with the subatomic particles. 

The use of gold in the painting also points to points to this relationship of gravity with respect to its mass. Which makes it weigh more than any other metal.
