—————————————————

In Arabic calligraphy, the ninety-first surah in the Holy Quran, Ash-Shams, meaning 'the sun'; is written exactly once in the Islamic Calligraphy Diwani Jali script to create an abstract stylized sun. (Full English Translation at the bottom)

Traditionally, the Arabic Calligraphy Diwani Jali script was not used to write the Holy Quran. Instead, this particular calligraphy script became popular in Turkey in the 1500 and 1600s for more bureaucratic and official uses as seals and crests. Its complex interweaving nature made it especially difficult to forge, but of course also more difficult to recite since it could not be read quickly or always decisively.

This design is part of a long-term project I'm working on called the 'The Quran of Solidarity'. I eventually plan to write the entire Quran in these abstract figural designs. Because of the time involved in creating each surah, I expect it will take me several years to finish the entire Quran.

91:06 And [by] the earth and He who spread it
91:07 And [by] the soul and He who proportioned it
91:08 And inspired it [with discernment of] its wickedness and its righteousness,
91:09 He has succeeded who purifies it,
91:10 And he has failed who instills it [with corruption].
91:11 Thamud denied [their prophet] by reason of their transgression,
91:12 When the most wretched of them was sent forth.
91:13 And the messenger of Allah [Salih] said to them, "[Do not harm] the she-camel of Allah or [prevent her from] her drink."
91:14 But they denied him and hamstrung her. So their Lord brought down upon them destruction for
