A KITA MASTERPIECE BY MIAN MUHAMED HAYAT NAQASH – LARGEST KITA SEEN BY US OF UNBELIEVABLE SIZE PATRON.
We finally measured this large kita. It is 57 inches by 26 inches. I do not recall seeing or hearing of such large kita. Exceptional calligraphy as well as exceptional naqashi, in tradition of his father Baba Miran Baksh. Hayat Naqash was first cousin of artist M.A. Rahman Chughtai. Their ancestral domain was the first hujra on the right in the Wazeer Khan mosque. Umar Din Naqash, father of Baba Miran Baksh, also worked in the same hujra. It was with great effort that we managed all this. Enjoy!

Hayat sahib had two sons Yaqub and Ishaque. Famida was a daughter living in Samnabad Lahore. Anyone can say hello to us. Love to hear from them again. Some have migrated abroad.

Hayat Naqash was son of Karam nisa wife of Baba Miran Baksh, and Karam nisa was sister of the father of Chughtai Sahib. That means maternal cousin. Son of Phupha.
