 I am sorry brother, I tried my best to see a passage but I saw just Allah 99 names. I saw more names like: Dhul Jalal. Al- Mutaal, Addayan.

 What makes me almost sure it is not  averse in Quraan is, that I saw Allah's name: Al-Samad, and this name's mentioned just once in Quraan in Suaart Ikhlas, and that passage is not suraa Ikhlas.

 Anyway, I will keep trying and show this to an expert in Arabic calligraphy, if I have a chance.
  I wanted to reply now just because I told you to wait for me..

  BTW, that plate is very beautiful, masha' Allah. Smile

Kind regards
