I was given a framed picture with Arabic calligraphy which I believe is from the Qur'an, but I do not read Arabic.
Can anyone translate the script and/or give the reference for which chapter and verse this is from?
I would be grateful to any readers of Arabic for your help.

Actually this is not Arabic, I am not sure if it is Urdu, but I think it is form Persia or something like this.
BUT it is not Arabic for sure,, just the letters are Arabic letters.

Wa'alaikum salaam "nanakm"
It is also not in Urdu.
I am pretty sure it is Persian - cz the 2nd last sentence of 2nd image has the words "Faarsi Tarjumma" which means Faarsi/Persian Translation.
You might wanna try your luck on an Iranian/Persian/Farsi forum. Unfortunately I also don't know Persian.
From the few words that I can understand it seems like it is talking about the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (S.a.w)
"O Lord, forgive me, my parents and Muslims in the Hereafter. O Lord, show mercy on them as they showed mercy to me when I was young."

Thank you both, sisters, for your responses. I received a similar answer from one other person I asked, so I think it is Persian and I will look for a Faarsi forum or ask my Iranian neighbor next time I see him.
