Calligraphy word " Al- Malik" (Name #4) The Absolute Ruler, Allah has three Names that are similar to Malik: Maleek (مليك) and Maalik (مالك). The meaning for all three names is: One who possesses the attribute of Mulk. What is Mulk? Kingdom, dominion, power, authority. Mulk has three meanings: 1) Possession and ownership (لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ To Him belongs the Ownership of the heavens and earth 2:107) 2) Control and authority (لَكُمُ الْمُلْكُ الْيَوْمَ For you in the authority this day 40:29) 3) Ability and power (لاَ يَمْلِكُونَ They do not possess ability 13:16) Malik is the One who executes His command in His possession. Every malik (king) is not able to execute their amr (will). Malik is the one who owns and also has authority and command. The one to whom the amr (commanding) and nahy (forbidding) belong too. Only Allah has the power to command and forbid, He has the action and the word (kun, fa yakoon�be and it is). According to ibn Qayyim, Malik is the One who rules by His words, command and the One who gives the hukm (ruling). I took little inspiration for writing from the movement and harmony of Arabic Scripts like khat e diwani, Khat e diwani jeli and Riqa diwani. This cursive style developed during the reign of the early Ottoman Turks (16th century ). It was invented by Housam Roumi. It was labeled the Diwani script because it was used in the Ottoman diwan. If we see overall painting then writing style is contemporary. Writing is composed with Islamic motives which are used in Islamic architecture.They are based on curving and branching vegetal forms. But some of them have foliage and linear geometric patterns in a single design, and some purely abstract . The floral designs have evolved into beautiful and highly complex patterns. I tried to use arabesque color palette in motifs but in few options color palette is inspired from contemporary colors. In mostly paintings square and round motives are used as a "nukta". Some time text is readable sometime not.
