Begin everything in the name of Allah, the All-merciful, the Compassionate. One of the oft-uttered phrases in Islam, the basmala is an important reminder of remember Allah in our dealings with others, in our personal lives, and in many other situations. Let this short yet weighty phrase accompany your own words and works, and let the mention of the All-merciful and the Compassionate be a source of blessing in it for you. It's masterfully written by Ustadh Mothana in the Tughra script style, a famous style that was originally developed by Ottoman Sultans for their official seal. It is used here to remind you of the ultimate seal of good works: beginning one’s actions in the name of God, seeking therein His mercy.
