"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
If a piece has to do with the Ahlul Bayt, please feel free to use/download it but only if it's for the sake of the Ahlul Bayt (obviously, right?). I only ask that you recite a salawat (and *cough* a credit/link back to my gallery is always nice so people can find more works, lol)
If the piece is not explicitly for the Ahlul Bayt, please ask if you can use it (just because I need control over things like school assignments or whatever).

The secret to contentment was shown when Zaynab testified, "I saw the beauty of God". It was shown when Imam Hussain asked Allah, "I've given You everything, are You satisfied?". Contentment in life is reached when we show gratitude to our family, to our friends, to strangers who help us, to God. We remember how fortunate we are to have such amazing people in our lives.
In Dua Kumayl we say, "[Allah's] remembrance (dhikr) is a cure (shifa)" because saying alhamdulillah will force us to recognize that Allah is our Hope. The contentment in knowing where we've come from, who we are, what we stand for, why we stand, where we're going... etc. are life questions that people dedicate their entire lives to was already answered on the plains of Karbala - it's about being grateful for what we have.
Sometimes we fall into a hole but what brings us back up is the remembrance of God and the relief we feel knowing that there will be salvation (faraj). The Imam will return... we just have to wait and continue to be grateful.
Babul Hawa'ij was content with his Lord right until the end. He was so happy with the decree of Allah that Allah gave the world to him, so much so that when anyone goes to him he gives them more than what they came to him for.
