The most repeated and important phrase of the Holy Qur'an is the basmala, fully pronounced Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim, composed here in the traditional thuluth style of Islamic calligraphy. The phrase translates: "In the name of Allah (God), Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.” It is the essence of all healing and the beginning and culmination of all good deeds.
