A new comic is being released after a long while! One request that I’ve received frequently is to have the comics in color. So I’m trying something new with the style of the comics from now on. It’s going to be in color and will use elements from Persian & Turkish miniature paintings. This is the first Sufi Comic using this style. Hope you all like it 🙂

Other than the obvious meaning this anecdote has, there is a more subtle meaning that heaven can also be experienced in this world, here & now.

The description of heaven is pale in comparison to this.
