These are testing times for all of us. We should reflect on the struggles of our Beloved (ﷺ) who went through many hardships, yet here we are still conveying the Blessed message.
This Surah is a beautiful reminder, that even though these testing times around the world, are nothing in comparison to the One who went through many hardships with ease; knowing the Lord is in control of everything.
The artwork is made in layers with the Surah raised and ‘Bismillah’ raised above that. It is made in this manner to represent the highs and lows of life. We can reach many highs in life, but we will always have many lows.
Surah Ash-Sharh is also referred to as Al-Inshirah and is the 94th Surah of the Qur’an. The English meaning of this Surah is “Solace” or “Comfort” and is composed of 8 ayats (verses). It is classified as a Meccan Surah meaning its revelation was before Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) had migrated from Mecca to Medina.
This surah was revealed by Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) to console and encourage Him (ﷺ). The Prophet (ﷺ) had to bear the brunt of the criticism and abuse when Islam was first revealed to Him (ﷺ) since people thought of Him (ﷺ) crazy. He (ﷺ) was openly mocked in the streets as no one in Mecca was receptive to his message. Although he gradually became accustomed to this ridicule, He (ﷺ) faced a lot of hardship and the message of this Surah, Allah declares beautifully, “Indeed, along with every hardship comes ease” (verse 5), and He repeats it to emphasize the message.

Did We not expand for you, [O Muhammad (ﷺ)], your breast?
And We removed from you your burden
Which had weighed upon your back
And raised high for you your repute.
For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.
Indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.
So when you have finished [your duties], then stand up [for worship].
And to your Lord direct [your] longing.
