Asalamu Alaykum!

I have been around Arabic calligraphy and writing forms my entire life but until recently had never really seen much of or studied floriate kufic calligraphy or calligraphy popular in Fatimid Egypt and the Maghreb. Attached is a piece of this said to date from around the 10th Century. I am stumped. Let me know what you think.

First of all it is not aya in Surah Al Ekhlas, it is written in a special kufy style, I am still searching about it.

I agree that it is not an Ayah from Al-Ekhlas. I do not know why they are claiming it is. Thank You for the help.

These are the original Arabic letters of Fatimid Kufic, they are obvious ones, but the first image don't.
