As Arabic 1 comes to a close (2 more classes)  I thought I'd post some arabic calligraphy. Its a huge basis for Islam because they don't use physical images and icons in their practice the way many other religions use.  I especially like the third one down. It says "shookran" meaning thank you-- but the way the letters are organized is something different than I've seen.  I can't remember what phrase it is exactly, but there's a sentence that, in the right situation if you say it three times you're automatically converted to Islam--I think they have that phrase written out in some of these.
