Classic Art



Sheikh Zayed Poem 1

Presented in Dubai Int’l Exhibition for Arabic Calligraphy – 2012 and acquired by HH SheikhHamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.

This is an artwork for a poem in the local dialect of the UAE, for the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Narjes resembled the shape of the Ottoman decrees (Fermans) which were always crowned with the name of the provenance authority of the decree (mostly the Sultan) written in the form of “Tugra”. This painting was crowned by the name of Sheikh Zayed in the same classic shape.

Narjes introduces a bit of modernization to the structure and setting of this artwork. She curved its lines and dismissed the traditional closure for each line, which characterizes the manuscripts and writings in the Jali-Diwani calligraphy. She also joined the lines by extending the (Meem) letters in the middle of each verse of the poem, highlighting a unique feature in Nabataean poetry which is the annexed rhyme. This is the rhyming of both the first and second parts of each verse of the poem, different to the neglected rhyming rule of traditional Arabic poetry, which only abides to rhyme the second parts of the verses exclusively.

Sheikh Zayed Poem Verses 2

Texture: Conquered Turkish Ebru paper and traditional ink

Presented in Dubai Int’l Exhibition for Arabic Calligraphy – 2012 and acquired by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.

A painting in which the authenticity of the calligraphy and the commitment to the classical rules of the Jali-Diwani calligraphy, have been mixed with the modernized formation within the allowance of artistic needs, adding mirth and visual music to the painting, which, in return, lines together with the psychological mood of the poet and his joy of welcoming his visitor. This celebration is expressed by the demolition of darkness and the joy of gentleness of the rain showers from the clouds, along with the coming of soft breezes.

Ayat Al Kursi

Allâh! none has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber, nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Kursî extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. (Quran 2:255)





When the unbelievers hear the Reminder, they nearly strike you down with their glances, and say: 'Surely, he is mad'. But it is nothing other than a Reminder for all the worlds. (Quran 68:51-52)
