Testimonials

The day I laid eyes on Hoca's Arabic Calligraphy in the Chinese style is the day I totally became mesmerized with his videos and workshops. The flowy ribbony pen strokes of the Arabic letters speak to my soul! Hoca Haji Noordeen is no doubt a master teacher! He teaches from the heart. He engages the students' minds and souls through the Arabic writings and verses from the book of Allah. I am truly honored to be Hoca Haji Noordeen 's student.

Fatma Ulusoy Hoca is a skilled artist and a dedicated teacher who willingly shares her knowledge of the traditional Islamic art of Tezhip. Fatma Hoca's teaching methodology helps us enhance our creative skills, understand the subject better, and bring out the best in us. I am grateful to have her as my teacher and looking forward to learning more from her in the days to come.

I joined Deen Arts early October 2020 in the Introduction to Calligraphy beginner Riq’a class group 6 with Shahryanshah Sirajuddin Hoca. I enjoyed my short time with Shahryanshah Hoca and his dedication to teaching the fine art of Arabic calligraphy. I want to Thank Hoca for his hard work, dedication and being a great mentor to all students.

Shaykh Bedrettin has an amazing ability to make students feel comfortable enough to do live demonstrations in class, what would have been (for me) a terrifying experience, was made exciting and enjoyable. He is encouraging and supportive as a teacher and his passion for the subject is felt by those who attend his classes.

May Allah reward him greatly for his kindness and patience in helping us to improve ourselves.
