Arabic calligraphy is based on the Arabic script, which was used by Muslims around the world in their own languages.

Framed Islamic calligraphy was used to represent God because Muslims were forbidden from representing Allah with images or idols.

You can find Arabic calligraphy in many Muslim homes and museums.
