This post is intended to explain the idea of the name FigLab very briefly and also the explanation of the logo.

And we are naming our laboratory with the name of a blessed fruit - Fig. So why did we choose this fruit as name? What is the speciality of fig? The answer is - the chapter 95 of the holy Quoran is named “The Fig”. Also, Allah started this Surah (chapter) with -

And here is the final logo (as of today) -
