From October 24 to February 2, the Hanyang University (HYU) Museum is holding the 2013 special project, Islamic Calligraphy written Voice of God, at its Planning Exhibit Hall. The exhibit was planned in order to introduce Islamic culture to Hanyangians. The exhibition shows how calligraphy is deeply associated with Islamic culture, and provides a description of the origin of Islamic calligraphy to the use of calligraphy in daily life. Furthermore, visitors can write calligraphy on Islamic decorating paper by themselves.

Since icons, sculptures, and paintings were rare in past Islamic culture, calligraphy is the best representation of Islamic culture and religion.  Kim Hyo-jung, the curator of the HYU Museum, said, Despite of limited financial resources, the HYU Museum has still been able to hold this exceptional exhibition on calligraphy. We hope more Hanyangians visit to seize this wonderful opportunity to experience Islamic culture.

Many Arab students were impressed at the exhibition. In my country, Pakistan, there are many beautiful writing styles like Noory or Nastealiq. Calligraphy is elegant and a big part of our life. Through this opportunity, I hope more people get familiar with Islamic culture, said Faisal Ahmed, who is doing his PhD in the Chemical Engineering at HYU.
