Rumi's Garden is proud to present the traditional Islamic calligraphy of Ferhat Kurlu
from Turkey. Ferhat Kurlu was born in 1976 in Dagguvezi village of Fatsa as the second child of Saban and Asiye Kurlu. He completed his primary education in his country and his secondary education in Samsun Ladik Akpınar Anatolian Teacher High School. (1993) He met elective illumination illumination course at On Dokuz Mayıs University Faculty of Theology. During this period, he took the first art knowledge and the first rik'a lessons that aroused interest in classical Turkish Islamic arts. In July 1996, he met Hasan Çelebi lecturer with the sign of Calligrapher Mumtaz Durdu and started the sulus-naskh work. After a four-year lecture, he received the sulus-naskh convention at the ceremony held in IRCICA in October 2000. The same year, he started to participate in competitions and exhibitions.
The Levhat is composed of several ahadith, many of which relate to knowledge including:
'The first inscription the Pen wrote was In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.'
'I am the city of knowledge and 'Ali is its gate.'
'Shall I not teach you words by which, when you say them, Allah will remove your care, and settle your debt? Say in the morning and evening: O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from care and grief, I seek refuge in Thee from incapacity and slackness, I seek refuge in Thee from cowardice and niggardliness, and I seek in Thee from being overcome by debt and being put in subjection by men.'
