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). [discovered this on Etsy, show this artist some love and buy their prints!]
Surah 91 - Ash-Shams
In the name of Allah, the most Gracious and most Merciful.
By the sun and its brightness.
And [by] the moon when it follows it.
And [by] the day when it displays it.
And [by] the night when it covers it.
And [by] the sky and He who constructed it.
And [by] the earth and He who spread it.
And [by] the soul and He who proportioned it.
And inspired it [with discernment of] its wickedness and its righteousness,
He has succeeded who purifies it,
And he has failed who instills it [with corruption].
Thamud denied [their prophet] by reason of their transgression,
When the most wretched of them was sent forth.
And the messenger of Allah [Salih] said to them, “[Do not harm] the she-camel of Allah or [prevent her from] her drink.”
But they denied him and hamstrung her. So their Lord brought down upon them destruction for their sin and made it equal [upon all of them].
And He does not fear the consequence thereof.
