TITLES OF JESUS FROM THE QUR'AN
I love Arabic calligraphy, so when I found this design, I was very excited...I don’t know who created it, or else I would give them credit. Arabic is such a beautiful language and it’s fascinating how you can draw and design with it! Someday I’m going to take formal lessons to learn how to draw Arabic calligraphy.
One of the reasons I love this design is that all too often, Muslims and Christians don’t realize how much they actually have in common with each other. With clever intertwining of the letters, this design features the titles from the Qur’an of Jesus Christ (Isa al Masih - his peace be upon us)...the same titles which are in the Bible. He is the Word of God, the Spirit of God, and the Light of God.
For those of you who can’t read Arabic, this may just look like a design of curvy lines, so to help you appreciate how amazing and malleable Arabic is, here’s a description and color coded key to the different words. Remember, Arabic reads from right to left.
Kelimetullah - Word of God: Isa is the only one in the Qur’an or the previous books who is called “Allah’s Word” (in Sura 3:39, 45) and “His Word” (God’s Word) in Sura 4:171. The Biblical references for this title are John 1:1-14 & Revelation 19:13
Ruhullah - Spirit of God: Isa is the only prophet in the Qur’an who is called a Spirit from God in Sura 4:171. The Biblical references are Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 15:45; and
2 Corinthians 3:17.
Nurullah - Light of God: Sura 4:174. Biblical references:Matthew 4:16; Luke 1:76-79; John 8:12; John 12:46; Isaiah 49:6, and many more.
