Hee Sook Lee-Niinoja: Islamic Calligraphy & Muslim Identity

The words of the Koran, given by God through the Prophet Muhammad to Muslims, are the core in Islam. His Will was accomplished by the invention of calligraphy which is regarded as one of the greatest achievements in Islamic civilization. Islamic calligraphy has become not only a direct-indirect driving force of Muslims’ strong identity but also an object of high appreciation to non-Muslims due to its beauty. This attitude has been tremendously praised by artists and calligraphers in religious and applied art. Kuwait is not an exception.

This paper investigates Arabic calligraphy as an illustrative tool for religious and applied art in modern Kuwait, in parallel with an examination of its role in Muslim identity. As better understanding of Islamic culture is unavoidable in current societies where many conflicts take place, this paper could open up dialogues between different beliefs and religions, underlining the common culture and values. This book is especially made for education and research.
