This Surah, entitled ‘Ad-Duha’, meaning ‘The morning brightness’ is composed of 11 different verses. The first three verses are in the upper horizontal line. The fourth verse is the larger lower line. The other verses read clockwise. For example the fifth verse is upside down on the left and so on. A translation of the whole surah can be seen below, courtesy of Sahih International. The Hindi numerals appear at the end of every verse. All 11 verses are included, and none are repeated.

93:01 By the morning brightness

93:02 d [by] the night when it covers with darkness,

93:03 Your Lord has not taken leave of you, [O Muhammad], nor has He detested [you].

93:04 And the Hereafter is better for you than the first [life].

93:05 And your Lord is going to give you, and you will be satisfied.

93:06 Did He not find you an orphan and give [you] refuge?

93:07 And He found you lost and guided [you],

93:08 And He found you poor and made [you] self-sufficient.

93:09 So as for the orphan, do not oppress [him].

93:10 And as for the petitioner, do not repel [him].

93:11 But as for the favor of your Lord, report [it].

وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا سَجَى
مَا وَدَّعَكَ رَبُّكَ وَمَا قَلَى
وَلَلآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لَّكَ مِنَ الأُولَى
وَلَسَوْفَ يُعْطِيكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرْضَى
أَلَمْ يَجِدْكَ يَتِيمًا فَآوَى
وَوَجَدَكَ ضَالًّا فَهَدَى
وَوَجَدَكَ عَائِلا فَأَغْنَى
فَأَمَّا الْيَتِيمَ فَلا تَقْهَرْ
وَأَمَّا السَّائِلَ فَلا تَنْهَرْ
وَأَمَّا بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ فَحَدِّثْ

    I just came across your page by chance, by Allah’s will actually, not by chance.. The Calligraphy is breath taking !! I tried to contact you privately but couldn’t find the link. I shared the calligraphy of surah Ar Rahman on my facebook page. I hope that’s ok? please contact me if it’s not and I will instantly remove it.

    Jzk, fi amanAllah
