حفظه ال

One of the world’s most famous and revered Islamic calligraphers, Khalil Al-Zahawi (also known as the “elder of calligraphers” – shaykh al-khattatin) was gunned down outside of his home in Baghdad, another casualty in the ever-escalating sectarian war on culture and learning.

Once the largest city in the world and the center of human art and science, it’s slowly being transformed by soldiers and fanatics into a city of terrified, uneducated peasants.

May their gods preserve them — it’s obvious that we cannot.
