Hajji Muhammed Takeda

Hajji Muhammed Takeda is considered to be the greatest visual artist Mars had ever produced; some would say the solar system. He is the grandson of Dr. Toshiyuki Takeda, the famous Martian rebel and one of the few Japanese Martian workers who joined the Mars revolt.

Hajji Takeda was a struggling mechanical engineering student at the Valles Marineris University, when his uncle realizing his nephew was floating without direction, paid for him to take Hajj. Upon returning from Hajj he was a changed man. He changed his major to architecture and began drawing and painting. He also joined Martian Jihad. Six years later he graduated with honors, two years after that he put on his first art show to rave reviews. That first show set him off on a long and successful art career.

Most famous for his Martian landscape paintings and drawings, Hajji Takeda would spend weeks in the Martian wilderness fasting, making dhiker and painting. He set up a travelers fund for Martians to be able to make Hajj, leaving a sizable piece of his estate to his Hajj fund when he passed away.

While Hajji Muhammed Takeda is most famous for his paintings he was also an accomplished architect , and although he never hit the heights of fame in architecture as his Martian contemporary Khalid Bin Ali. The Waterfall Apartment building he designed in Valles Marineris city is still a sight to behold.

Assalammu'alaikum Edward. I just wanna say that you have a great blog which concerns about Islam. It's very nice. I think it's a good choice to make a blog like yours so that we can introduce Islam to any other people. Masha Allah!

Edward,

Thanks a lot for your kind comment over at my place, it's most appreciated. Really.

I'd have called here if I hadn't been so busy of late. But better late than never, as they say.

Tell you what though, I'll have to call back later and give your writing all the time and attention it deserves. I think I could safely say this place of yours is unique.

By the way, thanks to link me, but if you don't mind can you correct my name? (you write Rina but my name is Rini). But it's not really important actually.

Thanks for your comments. I will soon post something about Kurdish religious people and their words about Islam.

Islam can be tolerant, democratic. But people only focus on terrorism and negative points.
