"Much research has been done on the concept of the adult coloring book as a form of art therapy. The results of these studies show that coloring for adults can benefit individuals suffering anything from cancer to stress. Adding a spiritual/Islamic component makes this kind of art therapy beneficial in both this world and the hereafter, making adult coloring fun and functional. The designs chosen for the Islamic theme are intricate works that the adult colorer will find both challenging and soothing. But kids can enjoy them too!" says Theresa Corbin
The Islamic, Adult Coloring Book is 130 pages. It was compiled by Theresa Corbin who regularly blogs at Islamwich . Her coloring book is an effort to teach the non-Muslim about Islam and to combat the rising tide of stress in the modern Muslim's life, while still being beneficial in this world and the hereafter. The designs chosen for the book are intricate works that the adult colorer will find both challenging and soothing. The pages include detailed mosque architecture, calligraphy, hadith, dua, Quranic verses, and quotes all to allow Muslims to relax and refocus on deen. Each coloring page has a corresponding short, descriptive page for non-Muslims who want to join in on the relaxation and learn something about Islam along the way.
