Ideas to help you decorate the occasions of the Islamic New Year with Islamic carpets

Merging the beautiful Islamic carpets in homes with modern carpets is like combining originality and nobility with modernity and modernity. However, Islamic carpets have a prestige that is not at all similar to the prestige of modern carpets.

Some people who appreciate the Islamic carpets and the ancient art or the value they represent still insist on furnishing their homes with the types and colors of Islamic carpets that are suitable for all shapes and types of furniture.

But here we will give you some ideas that will help you and be a guide in decorating the occasions of mosques, schools and homes in the New Hijri Year:

First: Decorating mosques with Islamic carpets

All modest and medium mosques, even the luxurious, famous, large and ancient ones, use Islamic carpets for floor coverings. In order to suit the prayer above it and to suit the line-up of the worshipers, and the use of the seclusion and the refugees to the houses of God Almighty, but most mosques hold ceremonies to welcome the Hijri year and commemorate the Prophet’s migration.

These occasions are suitable for Islamic carpets that are decorated with various Islamic motifs. In order to change the system of mosques a little to befit the occasion, those in charge can change the floor covering or add a new one over it temporarily, or make a platform decorated with Islamic carpets to hold events commemorating the Prophet’s migration over it, or decorate the pulpit with new Islamic carpets in order to complete the painting when the imam and preachers talk about this memory Venerable.

 

Second: Decorating schools with Islamic carpets

In schools, the journey of education, instilling values, and loving students with what is useful and valuable begins, and there is nothing more beautiful than practical means and field experiences in achieving this.

When one of the Islamic occasions approaches, and if we talk specifically about the advent of the new Hijri year, we recommend teachers or teachers in a school to ask the school to provide Islamic carpets, whether through students’ participation so that they feel that they have contributed to preparing the place, or through other means, then opening the school chapel Or the library hall to be equipped with Islamic carpets to revive the occasion, for example by hosting a preacher to talk to students and teachers about the details of the event with Islamic chants and reading clear verses from the Holy Quran.

Before that, we suggest providing the school corridors and the main rooms of the administration building with appropriate pieces of carpet, whether they are rectangular for the times, or circular for the meeting rooms, or square for the waiting rooms and visitors, in order to suggest the prestige of the occasion, and the constant readiness of the school.

 

Third: Decorating libraries with Islamic carpets:

And to prepare it to be a suitable place for educating and educating people about their religious and worldly matters, and to activate its role and increase its activities on various occasions that still revive in our souls the honor of our noble religion, and deepen our pride in it.

In the advent of the new Hijri year, it is possible to agree with the place’s management to provide the library with pieces of Islamic carpet suitable for the space and budget, as it is generally the most suitable and suitable for the atmosphere of reading, culture and office activities.

Perhaps, unless it is a children's library, then Islamic motifs can be combined with childish paintings, or Islamic motifs can be chosen from plants and animals that delight the child, so that we achieve psychological peace for him appropriate for his age group, and at the same time we begin to instill value in him from an early age.

 

Fourth: Decorating event and conference halls with Islamic carpets

In welcoming the new Hijri year, officials, interested persons, and directors of cultural events have always held celebrations, seminars, and even conferences in which some experts and scholars explain the noble event of the Prophet’s migration, and discuss the lessons learned from it.

Rectangular carpets for the corridors leading to the halls are suitable for these occasions, and large square carpets for the platforms on which scholars and speakers sit, and perhaps if they contain stairs and stairs, you will need to add decorative rectangular carpets as well, because this will be the visible part in the halls, and we do not forget the platform stairs and the speakers’ pulpit.

It is also proposed to add pieces of decorative carpets embossed with expressive drawings and immigration events made especially for the occasion of the advent of the New Year, to be placed as backgrounds for the platform and hung on the walls as a suitable decoration, and to add pieces of light carpets similar to mattresses on the backs of the front chairs, as well as on the speakers’ table.

Many private, civil, and even governmental institutions must care about their appearance, in order to look their best in front of their clients, visitors, and beneficiaries. All companies and institutions depend on customer service to develop their capital, and it is in their interest to participate in their events.

On a solemn occasion such as the advent of the new Hijri year, it would be nice if companies, institutions, medical clinics, banks, consulting offices... and other establishments that provide services to clients would be provided with appropriate carpets bearing appropriate Islamic inscriptions and decorations, and in decent colors. place and audience.

In addition, we put perfumed, clean, and ready prayer rugs for prayer, and institutions and establishments can present prayer rugs and decorative rugs at reasonable prices, as gifts on this occasion to employees first, and to distinguished customers secondly, with a Qur’an, “calendar” or calendar for the coming Hijri year with a narration Brief summary of important Islamic events.
