Frequently Asked Questions


Will watching the videos be sufficient enough to have me write good calligraphy?

Watching the videos alone will get you nowhere; watching the videos along with ample practice and completing the weekly homework will have you standing at your own feet by the end of the course. You will be ready to start creating your own calligraphy artwork inshaAllah.

Does the course include supplies used to write calligraphy?

As this is an online course, there are no supplies provided with the course. However, I teach how to create your own bamboo qalam and suggest brands/types of paper and ink you can purchase from any local art store.

Will the instructor mark or grade my work for corrections?

All online course students can join Omar Uddin's closed facebook group where they can post pictures of their work in progress and can ask for feedback: https://www.facebook.com/groups/380111338815157/

Is this course suitable for my kids to take?

Of course, the earlier a child starts learning calligraphy, the easier it is to pick up the art.

Will I obtain a certificate or Ijazah after completion of this course?

Unfortunately, it is not so simple; the Ijazah requires a more comprehensive study under the direct guidance of an Ustadh and can take 4-7 years to complete. This course will teach you the fundamentals to begin your journey.
