Ahlan Wa Sahlan  أهلاً وسهلاً

   Arabic–stylized Kufic script

Traditional Arabic welcome–especially to a home– emphasizing hospitality to strangers.

Ahlan— أهلاً  — is “family,” as in “You’ve come to stay with family,” and sahlan— سهلاً — is flat or open place without obstacles and where there is abundance to be shared with visitors. “Welcome: you’re with family, be at ease.”
