I am a Muslim Hebrew calligrapher hails from Cochin, India. Born and bought up in a typical Malabari Muslim family, I was very much attracted to the Arabic calligraphy I have tried copying it as I was basically a child with artistic skills. Later on I developed my skill in writing. The mention about Torah in Quran made me curious to learn about Jewish scripture and later it turned into the artistic portion of it, calligraphy….
