Arabic Bible calligraphy for Muslims

Many Christians are looking for ice-breakers to talk about their faith with Muslim neighbors and friends. One way is to share elegant calligraphy Bible verses in Arabic from a translation understandable for those with little familiarity with church terminology. These can be shared as memes over social media, printed out as posters, or special-ordered as posters from Etsy. Believers have framed these and put them on the wall to start conversations, and given them as attractive gifts to open-minded Muslim neighbors. They are easily shareable to those with little knowledge of the Bible.
