穆哈馬德 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Muhammad. 穆哈馬德 is the name used for people named Muhammad, there is a different title often used for the Islamic prophet himself.

ムハメド is the name muhammad written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Prophet Muhammad

Prophet Muhammad Vertical Wall Scroll

穆聖 is the Chinese title for the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). I'm not sure this is appropriate for members of all Muslim sects to hang on their wall, so please make your own careful decision before you order this.

There is no god but Allah,
and Muhammad is His Messenger.

China wú yī shì zhǔ wéi yǒu ān lā mù hǎn mò dé shì ān lā de chāi shǐ
There is no god but Allah, / and Muhammad is His Messenger. Vertical Wall Scroll

This is one of the key creeds of Islam.

While perhaps more often seen in Arabic as
There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger.
there are many native Chinese Muslims (especially the Hui ethnicity) that do not speak Arabic.

Instead, they use this Chinese phrase to express this idea or statement of faith.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
