Document Type : research articles



Islamic painting is one of the most important issues of Islamic art; it gives us a different and much fuller picture of the daily life as it was lived in time and space, from that presented by the other sources. Thus, advice and guidance are important parts of the ethics in Islam, that the Prophet Muhammad –Sala Allah-u alihwasalam– advised all Muslims to advise each other. According to these doctrines, the Muslim artists recorded their imaginations in the paintings which used as a method of clarifying for the Islamic manuscripts. This paper is focusing on the manifestations of advice and guidance which appeared within the imageries of Islamic manuscripts, and how they are matching the Islamic style of the Islamic ethics.
