Across the bottom third of Duha Yang Kelam: Merayu Rezeki… is a thick stripe of overlapping Arabic characters in bold block lettering. Here, Husin has blown the letters up, and presents them in thick shades of gold which are set against the textured black covering the rest of the canvas. In emphasising the Arabic lettering through size, Husin speaks of the Doas of individuals being carried up to Allah by the Angels, one of their tasks. As such, it delineates a direct physical connection that remains unseen between humans, Angels and Allah. Duha Yang Kelam: Merayu Rezeki… speaks of a particular time in the day, between approximately 7.30 in the morning and the afternoon prayer, Zohor. It is said that at this time, Angels are especially abundant in their movement among us, observing the actions of humans as they work, pray and so on.

Established Malaysian contemporary artist Husin Hourmain is an abstract expressionist artist at heart. His paintings are a pure expression of flowing energy. From his very successful solo Awal Hurouf Asal Hurouf show in 2013, Husin singlehandedly brought about a new perspective to Islamic calligraphy as we know it and proves to be the most sought after Malaysian contemporary Islamic calligraphy artist. His collection of 30 pieces from his Awal Hurouf Asal Hurouf is widely acclaimed and garnered much attention beyond the borders of race, religion and nationality.
Observing an impending decline of understanding the Jawi amongst our youth, Husin Hourmain continues to delve into his cultural and religious identity of being a Malaysian Muslim. He imbues his artworks with a culmination of his strong abstract expressionist brush strokes and Jawi calligraphy, bringing about a better understanding and appreciation of Jawi for his multi-cultural and multi-racial audience.
His works are collected by public and private collectors in Malaysia.
