Writing to me is possibly the most ancient act, for if the pen was the first creation, then the act of writing was the first order upon this creation.
The Prophet (saws) said, “The first thing created by Allah was the pen, then, He ordered it to write, so it wrote everything that will happen till the Day of Judgment.” (narrated by Tirmidhi, Abu-Dawud, and Ahmad).
The Arabic language is artistically expressed through the calligraphic traditional scripts. I am influenced and inspired by the great calligraphers of past and present such as Ibn Muqlah, Yaqut Al-musta'simi, Hashim Muhammad Baghdadi and Hasan Celebi.
My art will be sincere, genuine and original, and must reflect the 3 H's i.e Head, Heart and Hand. Head refers to reflection and thought in my work. Heart means a higher purpose and being true to oneself. Hand means quality of workmanship.
