Allah

Japan araa
Allah

Islam has not taken much of a hold in Japan, so they just use this phonetic version of the Arabic name for God. I don't recommend this for a wall scroll.


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Allah / God of Islam

China zhēn zhǔ
Allah / God of Islam

真主 is how Chinese Muslims refer to God (it literally means "True Master").

Oddly, in China, two different names for God have emerged. Even though Muslims, Christians, and Jews all worship the same God of Abraham.

In Arabic, the word Allah is just the Arabic way to say, God. Arab Christians pray to Allah, just like Arab Muslims. Somehow in China, the title of God diverged.

If you are curious, there are millions of Muslims throughout China but especially in the northwest portion of China known as Xinjiang. Here you will find descendants of Turkmen, Persian, Arab, and other ethnicities. Some are mixed with Han-Chinese blood; others appear to be pure Turkmen. Many have fair complexions, green eyes, and light hair but all are citizens of China. A visit to Xinjiang will shift your paradigm and blow away all of your stereotypes about what it means to be Chinese.

There is no god but Allah,
and Muhammad is His Messenger.

China wú yī shì zhǔ wéi yǒu ān lā mù hǎn mò dé shì ān lā de chāi shǐ
There is no god but Allah, / and Muhammad is His Messenger.

This is one of the key creeds of Islam.

While perhaps more often seen in Arabic as
There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger.
there are many native Chinese Muslims (especially the Hui ethnicity) that do not speak Arabic.

Instead, they use this Chinese phrase to express this idea or statement of faith.

Coming soon, I will bring you truly Muslim calligraphy from the region known as Xinjiang in China. It is a place were virtually everyone is a Chinese citizen, but everyone is also a Muslim. I traveled over 2000 miles to the most remote areas of China, near the borders of Afghanistan and Pakistan to find a Muslim calligrapher. Preview Xinjiang Islamic Calligraphy Art. I am still working on translations before these wall scrolls find their way to our website.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.


A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
