Hilye-i Şerif calligraphy exhibition which it consists of Mehmet Çebi's private hilye collection was opened in Çetinye, Montenegro on May 16. The exhibition features dozens of pieces of the “Hilye-i Şerif” (a physical description of the Prophet Muhammad in calligraphy).

The term hilya in Arabic or hilye in Turkish has two closely related meanings. Firstly, it denotes a religious genre of Ottoman Turkish literature, dealing with the physical description of the last prophet, Muhammad. Later hilyes were also written for the first four Caliphs, the companions of Muhammad, prophet Muhammad's grandchildren.

The exhibition will be in Podgorica city of Montenegro after June 15.
