Weekdays or Weekends: Art of Calligraphy

Institute of Traditional Studies & Art

The Ibn Muqla Centre of Arts
"Inna-Llaha kataba-e-ihsana 'ala kulli shay"
"God prescribed that everything should be accomplished to perfection(beauty)" (Hadith)

Khattati - Calligraphy 
is dominated by strict rules with regard to the distinctive forms of the letter, proportions, continuity of rhythm and choice of style. Yet possible combinations of letters are nearly unlimited and styles vary from the rectilinear Kufi to the most fluid naskhi. The synthesis of utmost regularity and utmost liberty lends Arabic calligraphy its royal character. 

In no other visual art does the spirit of Islam breathe more openly. (Titus Burckhardt)
