    This why i love muslims!! :) :) they are really creativists and strong!!
    Awesome..your work is ..unbeliveabale..

    ps:i heard some muslim ulamaa saying it is forbidan to draw or paint or to embroider humans or animals because there are lots of ahadiths telling that,and in one of them Allah will ask who do that "to give life to his/her drawing/embroidery/painting"AND THEY CAN'T DO IT!!!

    These are tow ahadiths in arabic:

    عن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: ""إن الذين يصنعون هذه الصور يعذبون يوم القيامة، ويقال لهم: أحيوا ما خلقتم"" رواه البخاري ومسلم ، وحديث عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول:"" إن أشد الناس عذابًا يوم القيامة المصورون""

    And this the hadith in arabic:

    And in your language :):)

    What thoughts 3D embroidery!!!

    All what you do whithout humans or animals is perfect ..
    This is the hadith in arabic:

    عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ قَالَ : جَاءَ رَجُلٌ إِلَى ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ ، فَقَالَ : إِنِّي رَجُلٌ أُصَوِّرُ هَذِهِ الصُّوَرَ، فَأَفْتِنِي فِيهَا. فَقَالَ لَهُ: ادْنُ مِنِّي . فَدَنَا مِنْهُ، ثُمَّ قَالَ: ادْنُ مِنِّي . فَدَنَا حَتَّىَ وَضَعَ يَدَهُ عَلَىَ رَأْسِهِ ، قَالَ : أُنَبُّئُكَ بِمَا سَمِعْتُ مِنْ رَسُولِ اللهِ - صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ - . سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللهِ - صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ - يَقُولُ : " كُلُّ مُصَوِّرٍ فِي النَّارِ ، يَجْعَلُ لَهُ بِكُلِّ صُورَةٍ صَوَّرَهَا نَفْساً ، فَتُعَذِّبُهُ فِي جَهَنَّمَ " . وَقَالَ : إنْ كُنْتَ لاَ بُدَّ فَاعِلاً فَاصْنَعِ الشَّجَرَ ، وَمَا لاَ نَفْسَ لَهُ ، فَأَقَرَّ بِهِ نَصْرُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ .

    رواهُ البخاري (2225) ، ومسلم واالفظ له .

    And this is the hadith in english:

    And this the fatwa in arabic:

    Regardless of getting the angels come out of the houses and preventing them from entering to attend the prayers and listening to reading and recitations ...for you and for those who will work like you ..

    Not to forget that the money earned from the sale of a sewing in which animals or humans may be haram !! And who eat haram God does not respond to him !!

    This is a hadith in arabic:

    عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : ( إن الله طيب لا يقبل إلا
    طيبا ، وإن الله أمر المؤمنين بما أمر به المرسلين ، فقال تعالى : { يا أيها الرسل كلوا من الطيبات واعملوا صالحا } ( المؤمنون : 51 ) ، وقال تعالى : { يا أيها الذين آمنوا كلوا من طيبات ما رزقناكم } ( البقرة : 172 ) ، ثم ذكر الرجل يطيل السفر ، أشعث أغبر ، يمدّ يديه إلى السماء : يا رب يا رب ، ومطعمه حرام ، ومشربه حرام ، وملبسه حرام ، وغُذّي بالحرام ، فأنّى يُستجاب له ؟ ) رواه مسلم .

    And this the fatwa in arabic:

    And other disadvantages in this life and the afterlife ..

    This talk is from a sister in Allah who loves you and pity you

    My regards to you and your familly specially your mother

    Assalamou alaikom
