1. Qur’an Set

The Qur’an, Islam‘s holy book, is considered to be God’s literal word as revealed through angel Gabriel to prophet Muhammad. Recited either orally or written down, Muslims believe the Qur’an offers all of the guidance necessary for living a good life – this collection was composed from bone, palm and parchment by scribes throughout 23 years of Muhammad’s life and collected into a coherent collection by Umar in 632-644 CE when his second caliph ordered Zayd ibn Thabit to collect his proclamations proclamations sheets into coherent collections for later reference by Umar himself (reigned 632-644 CE).

One of the earliest Qur’an manuscripts held by the British Library and included in our Mingana Collection of Middle Eastern Manuscripts has been radiocarbon dated back to 8th century CE, covering over two-thirds of its entire text. This unusual-shaped manuscript, which recalls Tuba trees referred to but never mentioned directly within Qur’an text itself, and its double columns that slope like leaves is radiocarbon-dated as belonging to this period.

However, it must be remembered that the Qur’an is not a scientific textbook but instead contains religious messages which often conflict directly with modern science discoveries. To fully comprehend a statement in the Qur’an about creation for instance requires knowledge across various scientific disciplines.

2. Calligraphy

Many people mistake calligraphy as simply decorative handwriting, but there’s much more to this art form than meets the eye. Calligraphy comes from two Greek words meaning beauty and writing and involves writing letters with such precise proportions that even an experienced eye will recognize them as beautiful works of art.

Through history, different cultures have developed distinctive calligraphy styles. These styles vary in terms of size, thickness and other characteristics; popular examples are Roman, Chinese, Japanese Italic and Greek calligraphy styles that continue to influence modern forms of communication such as emails and text messages; many still provide striking Islamic gifts with lasting impressions.

As soon as it comes to learning calligraphy, there are a few tools you’ll need. A good calligraphy set should contain pens, paper and guides. In addition to that, having pencil and eraser to practice letter strokes would also come in handy; soft moldable erasers would help avoid leaving any residue behind.

Rulers are an invaluable asset when learning calligraphy, providing accurate guidelines to your work as well as quick sketches or layouts of what your final piece will look like.

3. Islamic Design

Decorating Islamic designs are an ideal way to show your appreciation of Muslim culture and heritage. From authentic pieces to more modern pieces, there’s sure to be something out there that meets both your taste and budget. Many designs feature floral motifs combined with geometric motifs – creating intricate yet beautiful works of art for walls, floors, ceilings, doors windows furniture etc.

Muslim decoration is marked by geometrical patterns that use simple or intricate geometries ranging from circles and triangles, to complex arabesques found during Abbasid-Aghlabid periods (Fig 1). They often conceal an Archimedean tiling composed of hexagons, squares, diamonds, and dodecagons that only appear upon closer inspection – creating soothing visual patterns which repeat themselves over and over. This repetition makes Islamic geometrics so appealing.

Geometric designs in Islamic art provide an example of how Islamic artists used cosmological ideas as inspiration in their work. One such geometric design dates back over 750 years at Iran’s Barsian Friday Mosque – its tiles feature tessellating patterns made up of seven and eight point stars arranged symmetrically on tiles dating from this era – while by 11th century artists had developed practical approaches for depicting nonconstructible polygons such as 7- and 9 sided stars or lozenges.
