Ziya (With Calligraphy)

Regular price $229.95

This piece is inspired by the 1835 nikahnama of Princess Ziya-i-Sultaneh, daughter of King Fath Ali Shah of the Iranian Qajar dynasty. This contract is made to be filled in by hand.

This contract is printed with metallic gold ink from top to bottom, making it a regal piece to be displayed at the time of nikah. It is sold blank, cannot be personalized, as it is printed in high volume, allowing us to provide such a beautiful piece at such an affordable price point.

For hand-written calligraphy, we work with the calligrapher Telisa Roessein. If you have any calligraphy questions, please e-mail her at hello@roesseinart.com with your order number included.

Unfortunately, for the Ziya with calligraphy, we cannot include a proof of the text, as it is handwritten. Since the Ziya is pre-printed, we can only include the city, and not the state or country. Due to space constraints, we cannot include CE or AH after the dates.

Size: 12" x 18"

Delivery: Please allow 4-8 weeks for delivery. Unfortunately there is no expedite option available.

This contract acts a cover page for a full marriage contract. With the purchase of each nikahnama comes a full 4-page Islamic marriage contract that the couple may choose to use or to amend to their liking.
