‘Masterpieces of the Calligraphy Art Hilya al-Sharif,’ that opened at the Yıldız Palace Mabeyn Köşk, is displaying nearly 100 examples of traditional calligraphic art.
For the first time, the Vatican is hosting an exhibit on Islamic calligraphy. The art form focuses on Prophet Muhammad, from his physical features to his "generosity, intelligence and wisdom."
An exhibition featuring classical and contemporary examples of Hilye-i Şerif and prayer beads will open in the Vatican on Oct. 1. The Hilya al-Sharif is a description of the personal virtues and the qualities of the Prophet Muhammad.
Led by Dr Sophie Gilliat-Ray of the Centre for the Study of Islam in the UK, it is aimed at finding out more about the background, training, role and impact of Muslim chaplains in Britain.
