This part of Verse 73 of Chapter 6 (Surah Al-Anaam) of the Holy Quran. One translation of the meaning of this verse from its native Arabic language is: “He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in truth. In the day when He saith: Be! it is. His Word is the Truth, and His will be the Sovereignty on the day when the trumpet is blown. Knower of the Invisible and the Visible, He is the Wise, the Aware.” Only the underlined portion of this verse is written in this piece of calligraphy.

The design is written in Jali Thuluth or (Celî Sülüs in Turkish) style, which is considered the most difficult among the classical Islamic or Arabic-Script calligraphy styles.

The design is geometrically innovative. The three vertical strokes, and their top ending, give a sense of motion to a higher point. These strokes and their relationship to the rest of the design evok strength and certitude suitable to the meaning of the written text. The vertical strokes are complimented by the intricate tear-drop unit of Islamic ornamentation, which rests on a bowl-like open stroke at the bottom to provide support and balance. The design is surrounded by multiple borders of Islamic ornamentation or illumination called Tazhip in Turkish using gold leaf and color. There is also an outer border of blue Indian paper.

هذا جزء من آية 73 من سُوۡرَةُ الاٴنعَام من القرآن الكريم:” وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ و ٱلۡأَرۡضَ بِٱلۡحَقِّ‌ۖ وَيَوۡمَ يَقُولُ ڪُن فَيَڪُونُ‌ۚ قَوۡلُهُ ٱلۡحَقُّ‌ وَلَهُ ٱلۡمُلۡكُ يَوۡمَ يُنفَخُ فِى ٱلصُّورِ‌ۚ عَـٰلِمُ ٱلۡغَيۡبِ وَٱلشَّهَـٰدَةِ‌ۚ وَهُوَ ٱلۡحَڪِيمُ ٱلۡخَبِيرُ.” النّص المكتوب هو ” قَوۡلُهُ ٱلۡحَقُّ‌ۚ”.

اللّوحة منفّذة بخط الثلث الجليّ وهو أحد أنواع الخطوط العربيّة الإسلاميّة ويعتبر أمير الخطوط لدى كثير من الخطّاطين.

التّركيب قد يبدو بسيطاً ولكنّه إبداعيّ. الخطوط الثّلاثة العموديّة توحي بالقوّة والتّأكيد. وهذا يناسب معنى النّص المكتوب.

الخطوط الثّلاثة العموديّة متناغمة مع وحدة من الزّخرفة الإسلاميّة معلّقة فوق صحن حرف القاف.

اللّوحة مزيّنة أيضاً بإطار من زخارف إسلاميّة بالذّهب وبعض الألوان. أمّا الإطار الخارجي الأزرق فهو من الورق الهندي.
