    Mashallah great variety of pics, especially love the first and fourth, but they all have a unique style about them!

    I love the calligraphy in “Qalbi” or “In My Heart,” but if it’s dedicated to Allah then the artist might want to reconsider the use of the Western style heart symbol, which has questionable origins. In any case you are very talented brother Fouad, ma-sha-Allah. Keep it up.

      May I ask what the origins are of the western style heart symbol?
