The work of Pakistan’s award winning calligraphers were displayed in the ‘Alla’ma bil Qalam’ exhibition, like Chief Khattat of Masjid Al Nabvi Al Sharif, Mr. Shafiq Uzzaman Khan and former Naqqash of Masjid Al Nabvi Al Sharif, Mr. Asghar Ali. In their works we can see beautiful compositions written in Kufi, Diwani, Thuluth, Naskh and Nastaleeq. The exhibition highlighted the continuity calligraphy tradition which goes back to the time of Caliph Umar Ibn Khattab and Caliph Ali. In various Islamic lands this tradition has been carefully nurtured and enriched, particularly in Pakistan where it constitutes country’s primary cultural identity and heritage.
