I ❤ Art: Islamic Art - Haji Noor Deen

Over the Chrismas period of 2009, I was in Toronto, Canada attending the Reviving the Islamic Spirit Conference, I came across the artwork of Haji Noor Deen, a Master Calligrapher.  He combines Arabic calligraphy with Chinese calligraphy and creates amazing works of art.  I love the fusion of the different styles of artwork, don't you?

Arabic: "Asalaamu Alaikum".
Translation:  "Peace be unto you".

Arabic: "La ilaha ill-Allah muhammadar rasulullah".
Translation: "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is His messenger"
