There is a possibility that because “Qalb” or “heart” plays a central role in the body in supplying blood which carries oxygen to even the brain which itself controls our body and acts as the command center, due to the centrality of its role, it is possible that the Quran and also the Ahadith refer to the heart due to this meaning whereby everything in ourselves somehow depends on it.
This is probably why the meaning of “Qalb” or “heart” is borrowed from its literal meaning and used for a series of other related meanings which has the theme of centrality and dependency on it. The approximate 100 verses in the Quran using the word ‘Qalb” actually use it with different intended meanings. It should be noted that perhaps there is something common between them in that there is a central theme that all those meanings share and thus one word is used for all the meanings.
Qalb Relation with Two Tones Design (Motifs Meaning)
Two tone color base:
Symbolized our qalb/heart. We need to purify our heart and soul to balance our physical and spiritual with remembrance of Allah SWT. Purifying our hearts is the key to success in the sight of Allah. What is a pure heart? The Prophet SAWS taught, “The pure ones are those who clean themselves from sin, doubt, cheating, lying, and jealousy.” So a pure heart loves to please Allah SWT and to follow Islamic values such as honesty, kindness, patience, etc.
Sajada Motif: Sajjāda (Arab., sajada, ‘bow down’, ‘worship’). The prayer mat on which solat is performed. The design in the carpet is not symmetrical, but leads to a point on one of the short sides which is placed in the direction of the qibla. The word underlies masjid, mosque, the place of prostration. Thus, the floral and detailing represent the sajada itself to show that we need to purify our heart and soul through worship towards Allah.
Qalb means turning something over from one side or state to another one. The reason that the heart is called Qalb in Arabic is that it turns the dirty venous blood over and replaces it with fresh artery blood full of oxygen. So it returns the inverse of what it got.
Hence, Qalb design means we need to make sure our physical and heart are equally clean. We need to do everything for the sake of Allah SWT. This design also aims to encourage people to celebrate Eid with positive vibes.
Qalb is the part of our entity that turns over our sensation inputs to what we call the world. If this turning over does not match with the purpose of creation, our observed world will change and so do our behavior and doings. Such corruption will deviate us from the main path of creation.
So, Qalb is not the Heart that pumps blood in our veins.
If it was so, the people with artificial hearts should have a sort of identity issue. If we want to consider a place for Qalb, the only choice would be the brain; which either does the turning-over itself or is a medium for it. Based on the meaning of Qalb, the Quran clearly tells us that what we perceive as the world, is the turn-over and interpretation of the true reality.
