Calligraphy is a very important art form in the Islamic world. The Qur’an, written in elegant scripts, represents Allah’s divine word, which Muhammad (s.a.w.) received directly from Allah during his visions. Quranic verses, executed in calligraphy, are found on many different forms of art and architecture. Likewise, poetry can be found on everything from ceramic bowls to the walls of houses.
For Muslims, reality, as well as art, centers around Allah. Artists and their audience use art as a vehicle to get closer to Allah. Beauty, as represented by art, is one of the qualities of the divine. There is a hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) that says: "Allah is beautiful and he loves beauty."
