For the first time in Islamic calligraphic history, the most oft-repeated ayat in any sura “Which is it of the blessings of your Lord that you deny” was not only written in the Tughra script, but masterfully so. Besides the great Arabic calligraphy composition which also includes of the first 4 ayats of Sura Al-Rahman besides it, it also contains a tasteful translation option that adds another layer to the artwork. Unlike other compositions where the English works best styled as a secondary, non-decorative role so that the calligraphy can reign supreme, we found that this composition allowed a more artistic expression of the translation which add more depth and energy to the composition. Overall, it’s an excellent prompt to remember the vast favors of Allah upon one and a beautiful da‘wah artwork for places where non-Muslims visit such as MSAs, Masjids and other Islamic organizations. As such, this canvas is perfect for large gathering spaces such as living rooms, entrances, garden areas, kitchens, meeting rooms, etc.
Allah, the Most Merciful, is the source of all goodness. Whether through giving or through taking, in His Divine Wisdom, He is always bestowing favors upon whomever He wills. Of His favors are the sending of the Quran, through which humanity is guided and the miracle of speech, through which the human distinguished from other beings. Signs upon signs are shown to Man by Allah and favors upon favors are bestowed upon Man — can any of this be denied as from the Most Merciful?
