Turquoise Inlay Border TurqoiseInlay_palmstone.com_2 TurqoiseInlay_bismallah_detail

The Islamic Marriage Certificate places the Bismallah above all else, followed by the inscription from the Qur’an on God’s plan for marriage.  The text follows in English calligraphy, with room for signatures at the bottom.  The entire certificate is bordered by a pattern of blue, gold, and turquoise with color accents, borrowing from tile designs common throughout the Muslim world.
