Arabic is the language of the revelation and the Koran. Thus, not only verses and central words of Muslim faith are believed to bear a special power, but the Arabic script itself plays a central role in Islam and Muslim culture. As for example, symbolic values are ascribed to single letters, some letters are seen as representations of postures during prayer, the last letter of the alphabet, waw (واو), plays a central role in Sufism. In recent years, these single letters seem to become almost a trend in fashion in textile design.
