Perspectives: 

Quranic Tarots

2016

Perspectives are often formed by an individual; affected by their environment and personal values. This results in people having different opinions regarding certain issues due to their different perspectives. The Quran is no exception to this. This series shows how different groups of people utilise the verses in the Quran to fulfill their own agenda or to fit their perspective. Each card has digits at the top which corresponds to the verse which is being used to strengthen their convictions of God’s “say” to their beliefs and justify their actions.
