MUN026 – Munira Leather – Basmallah al-Qandusi Embossed

Basmallah al-Qandusi Embossed


Product Description

Bismillahi Rahmanir Raheem – the Basmallah by which Muslims begin most routine daily actions. It means In the Name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. It encapsulates two of God’s most beautiful attributes. This embossed piece is hand cut, delicately carved, tooled, stamped and dyed by hand in the traditional Granadinian style. The calligraphy is by al-Qandusi from his twelve volume Qur’an which he completed in 1849. Shaykh Muhammad b. Al-Qasim al-Qandusi (d. 1861), known as the creator of an exquisite, albeit unusual calligraphic script seen throughout the Maghrib, was also a saint endowed with spiritual realities he later revealed through his writings nearing his death.
