Framed Hilya Panel | Description of Prophet Muhammad by Muhammad Fuzy; Turkey


SKU HY-P-044

Description of Hilye-i Sherif panel containing the names of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

This masterpiece is a reproduction of an Ottoman hilya signed by Muhammad Fuzy. Its layout follows the standard classical style of Ottoman design as popularised by Hafiz Osman. However, what makes this piece particularly unique are the two large rectangulars containing the beloved names and titles of the Messenger of God ﷺ; the names include Ahmad, Mahmoud, Ta'ha, and Ya'sin amongst others.

At the top of the hilya panel is the Basmala (In the Name of God, the Infinitely Good, the All-Merciful) in a single line of black muhaqqaq script with a beautiful image of the Holy Ka'aba. The circular text-block, central to the panel, contains the traditional fifteen-line description of the Prophet ﷺ in black naskh calligraphy, while the blue center contains the phrase: 'Muhammad is the Messenger of God, God bless him and grant him peace'.
Four circular devices surround the description of the Prophet and each contains the name of the four caliphs;  Abu Bakr As-Siddiq, Umar Al-Farooq, Uthman Dhū al-Nurayn, and Ali al Murtadha
At the bottom of the hilya is another single line of Quranic text, in muhaqqaq script, that reads ' We sent thee not save as a mercy for the worlds' (21:107). To the left of the verse is an image of Masjid an-Nabawi.
