Wooden panel

This panel contains the shahadah (the profession of faith) that states: ‘I bear witness that there is Only One God and Muhammad is His Prophet’, worked in large thulth script. The letters are made of copper with a layer of gold. Large religious inscriptions written in thulth script were often hung in mosques and homes in Turkey. A similar panel can be found in the Yesil Cami (The Green Mosque) in Bursa, above the prayer niche (mihrab).
