Grace نعمة

“The Sufi says, 'It is the consent which draws down the grace.' Our consent opens the outer door of the heart that lets the transformative energies of love into our life.”
— Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

Grace” (نعمة) is one of the traditional words of blessing that have long been favorite subjects for calligraphers. It was the quote above that made me realize that at the root of the word N3Mt is the word N3M, “yes”, so that grace comes indeed from consent. This design is extremely abstracted, reducing each of the letters to its circular essence.
