Something I've always been intrigued by is the art of calligraphy. Haji Noor Deen Mi Guangjiiang is probably one of the most skillful in that area today (in my opinion). I was lucky enough to attend an MSA eastzone conference where he was giving something of a demonstration and subhanAllah, it was just sooo amazing. He even had volunteers come up and made everything look so easy, lol, but of course his work was way better ;P His style is really unique in that he mixes the skillz required to write Chinese (where the script is written from top to bottom) and Arabic (where the script is done from right to left) into his calligraphy- so you can imagine! You can check out his website for some of his work.

"Allahu akbar" [God is the Greatest]

"Transcendent is Allah" [i'm really not sure what this says in arabic, but it looks so nice :x ]

You can check out the rest here, awesome work, mashaAllah =)

wa alaikum as salaam

You're always hanging with the 'big' people- sup with that? =p Thats really cool though; his presentation was my favorite part :] The one I went to was in Spring 2003, it was held at Edison, NJ~ I hope they have it in NJ again, it's easier for me to go then!
