The History of this caver
Roots Muslim German with a Nigerian foreground.
My caves After being born in Marburg (Germany), I have lived and grew up in Berlin. Moved to Nottingham (England) and now live in Bradford.
My Caveinstitutions I went to the Clara Grunwald (Grundschule) primary school in Berlin, followed by the now closed down Secondary school (Gymnasium) Charles Darwin. Moving to England during the summer holidays between yr. 8 and 9, I attended the Djanogly City Academy in Nottingham then Bilborough College also in Notts. Finally, my current place of study, The University of Bradford in, well, in Bradford of course. duh.
My caveactivities I pray, read, design, write, record, blog and I occasionally practice the Art Of Motion (Parkour). Play football, basketball, table tennis, and a recent addition pool.
What is Dhikrcave?
Dhikr ذکر / plural adhkar / (Noun) Arabic meaning remembrance or invocation
Cave /ˈkāv/ plural caves / (Noun) from Latin cavea meaning hollow (place)
Well it started as a merge of the name of a website / design group I liked VISUAL DHIKR™ and a concept I worked out for myself. I always liked the idea of sharing my work for others to see, to comment on and critique. A website, blog and recently a tumblelog jumped into my mind. But what to call it?
Very early on in my “career” as Graphic Designer I took on the strange alias “Mu610”. Made up of the word “Muslim” and the year 610 a.D. This year in some sources marks the start of the message received by the Prophet saw. from Angel Gabriel a.s in the Cave of Hira. The cave, that he saw. went to worship God and to reflect.
The name Dhikrcave came into being, for the spaces that I reflect in, the places that I dump my thoughts and work in.
Enjoy! O you wanderer of my thoughts, enjoy the chaos and the calm, the Rants and the depression, the joy and happiness.
