Amulet of Arabic Text
Laminated card containing Arabic poetry, phrases, as well as a small leaf.
While walking through the traditional market we noticed a table full of various types of amulets (jimat) for sale. One was a laminated card, which had both sides printed in Arabic text. People will place these cards in their wallets, purses, cars, motorcycles, etc., to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck.
Since the Quran was written in Arabic, Muslims consider the Arabic language a sacred and holy language. For that reason there is tremendous respect and honor given to it, above all other languages.
