Shah Alam - Arabic Calligraphy at Kompleks Taman Seni Islam Selangor

The young Malay girl was putting the final touch of the sentence, her concentration never once waver even when surrounded by photographers, all aiming to capture this moment at various angles. Her eyes kept looking on the calligraphy writing while her steady hand guiding the utensil along. 

Arabic scripts are first to be written in pencils for checking purposes. Once vetted and approved, the writings are traced in dark ink. If there is any mistakes made with ink, it is either lightly scraped off or a complete do-over. 

Below is a short video of Arabic calligraphy being done.


Sharing is caring. A word of advice and a piece of information.
