On this page, please insert an image of Islamic calligraphy that you have found on the web. I have included some ideas of possible websites below, but you are welcome to explore others.


To add an image to this page:
Step 1. Please search for and save the image you've chosen to your desktop.
Step 2. Click on the "Refresh" button to make sure the wiki is current, and then click on "Edit this page" at the top right-hand corner of this page.
Step 3. Click into the middle cell (next to your name) in the table below to position your cursor. Note that if you position the cursor where someone else's image is, you'll override their image. If this happens accidentally, try to undo. I've been having some trouble with wikispaces inserting images where I want them to go... please give it a try and undo (command-Z) if you need to. If this doesn't work, please email me your image and I'll try to add it or fix a problem.
Step 4. To insert the image, click on the "File" button on the toolbar at the top of this page.
Step 5. When a dialog opens, click the "+ Upload files" button on the top right of the page. Search for the image you saved, and once it has uploaded, double click on it to insert it into the table (it should insert wherever you had previously located your cursor - see step 3). If the image is too large, click on the image and drag one of the corners in to make it smaller.
Step 6. In the right-hand column, please add the information requested.
Step 7. Be sure to click on the "Save" button in the toolbar.

• This is a satin cover for a coffin from Turkey (not sure of date). It is inscribed with the Muslim declaration of faith and a verse from the Koran that says that the coffin should face in the direction of Mecca, toward which Muslims pray.
• I chose this image because I thought it was interesting to see how words with such meaning could be stitched into such a beautiful design on fabric.
