Peace, one and all…

The beautiful calligraphy above is modelled on traditional Ottoman calligraphy and presents the text of a traditional poem.  The text runs thus:

‘Do not say ‘Who will guide me on the path of love?’ Just get on the road and God gives success’.

Ma sha Allah.  Source.

    Welcome to my online home. Thank you for stopping by. I took this image from the source above, where it was described in that way as I recall. At any rate, I am not an expert in calligraphy, so thank you for your correction.

    Allah bless you always and thank you for your visit.
