In a world where -graphy itself is a dying art, what with bits and bytes ruling the day right from the clerks' desk, this would mostly appear a relic from a bygone era. From a bygone era it is, though some ardent practitioners might protest the other half of that description. Some of these are from the Prophet's time!

An Islamic Calligraphy exhibition organized by the Islamic Heritage Foundation of Hyderabad in collaboration with the Iqbal Academy is taking place at the Salarjung Museum. The exhibition will have around 700 rare exhibits of Islamic calligraphy collected from 22 countries around the world. The Prophet Mohammed himself wrote some of them about 1300 years ago.

Some of the famous antique exhibits of calligraphic panels done by Hazrath Osman, Hazrath Ali, Hazrath Imam Hassan and others are on display here. A specimen of the verse of the Al Quran scripted by Hazrath Imam Hassan can also be seen. Besides, there are letters written by the Holy Prophet to the governors and caliphs of Bahrain and Oman and to the kings of Egypt and Ethiopia. They were obtained from the Museum Of Jerusalem.

The Consul-General of Iran, Ali Ghomi, will inaugurate this exhibition, and the vice-chancellor of Jamia Nizamia, S A Wali Quadri, will release a souvenir on the English translation of the relics. Live calligraphy demonstrations by expert calligraphers will be there on all days from 2pm.

Please contact 452-3211/452-3212 for further details.
