18 Perspectives: Process

So I’ve decided to do use the Koran as an object and the 18 perspectives of groups of people. I want to show how these 18 groups appropriated the verses from the Koran to justify their beliefs.

Major Arcana My Perspective Verse
The High Priestess The Feminist “[3:195] Their Lord responded to them: “I never fail to reward any worker among you for any work you do, be you male or female — you are equal to one another.”
The Magician/ The Sun The Scholar  “[38:29] … (They) may ponder over its Verses, and that those of understanding would be reminded.”
The Emperor The Ruler “[5:8]… Be just: that is nearer to piety…”
The Heirophant The Saint “[87:9] Therefore give admonition in case the admonition profits (the hearer).”
The Wheel The Misogynist
“[2:223] Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will, and send (good deeds) before you for your souls…”
The Lovers The Married Couple “[25:74] And they say, “Our Lord, let our spouses and children be a source of joy for us, and keep us in the forefront of the righteous.””
Strength The Believer “[3:104] Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong; they are the ones to attain felicity.”
The Hermit The Islamophobe “[2:191] And slay them wherever ye catch them..”

Death Death “[23:99] (In Falsehood will they be) until, when death comes to one of them, he says: O my Lord Send me back (to life)”
The Hanged Man/Temperance The Patient “[2:286] Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear”
The Moon The Homosexual “[4:16] And the two who commit it among you, dishonor them both. But if they repent and correct themselves, leave them alone. Indeed, Allah is ever Accepting of repentance and Merciful.”
The Devil The Extremist “[2:216] Jihad [‘Qital’] (holy war in the cause of God) is ordained for you (Muslims), though you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and like a thing which is bad for you. But God knows, and you know not.”
The Empress The Scorned Woman “[24:23] Indeed, those who falsely accuse chaste women, are cursed in this life and in the Hereafter. Theirs will be an awful doom.”
The Fool Me

“[109:6] For you is your religion, and for me is my religion” 

The World God “[17:89] And We have explained to man in this Qur’an every kind of similitude: yet the grater part of men refuse (to receive it) except with ingratitude!”

Here is a work in progress for one of them:

The Moon / The Homosexual
