Review from previously made Moon book:

“This book is otherworldly, in how perfect it is. It has become my absolute prized possession. When I unwrapped it for the first time, I literally stared at it in shock for about 10 minutes. It was that amazing to me. I knew I was paying for quality, but I’ve never seen craftsmanship like this book.”

The Basmala (Bismillah in Arabic) calligraphy is from the walls of Tokyo’s Turkish Mosque in the Shibuya-ku district district. The phrase ‘Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim’ translates to ‘In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful’. It is a common phrase used by Muslims before they do anything e.g. before eating; before driving; before starting an exam; etc. The wisdom of using this phrase is to remind people to be conscious of God, and in doing so, refrain from acting unjustly or being ungrateful to the blessings which God Almighty has bestowed upon us all.
