This special Arabic calligraphy is crafted in the Thuluth Jali script, and what sets it apart is its unique form – it’s shaped like the map of Palestine. The calligraphy within the map contains the first verse of Surah Al-Israa (سورة الإسراء) from the Quran, which translates to “Glory to Allah Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless, – in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth all things.” The Thuluth script, known for its complexity, is a challenging script to write and control. The artist skillfully combines this intricate script with the detailed map of Palestine, emphasizing the significance of the verse, which narrates the miraculous journey of the Prophet Muhammad, known as Isra and Miraj. This journey involves his night travel from Makkah to Masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem and his subsequent ascension to heaven, all occurring in a single night. The choice of the map of Palestine symbolizes the sacred nature of the land described in the verse.
