The Art of Writing.

Calligraphy is a visual art related to writing. It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad-tipped instrument, brush, or other writing instrument. Contemporary calligraphic practice can be defined as "the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skill manner”. Arabic calligraphy was originally a tool for communication, but with time, it began to be used in architecture, decoration and coin design. Its evolution into these major roles was a reflection of the early Muslims’ need to avoid, as their beliefs required, figures and pictorials that were used as idols before Islam was established in the Arabian Peninsula.

Memorizing the Holy Quran is a meritorious act for all believers. For some memorization comes easy and for some not so easy. There are many traditions and varying methods for memorizing Quran but one thing most aspirants can agree upon is that writing greatly aids in memorization and solidifying the lessons more permanently in the memory.
