What does this
piece of Arabic-script (Persian?) calligraphy say?

I found it on the New York Times site ages ago (probably through Google Image Search), where it was on a general 'Islam' site. There was no caption to the image. I've run it through Tineye and found a blog post
with the image, where its filename is "callig-from-iran".
I'm a student of Persian, but I'm rubbish at reading calligraphy. I can make out "جان" and "جهان" I think, but other than that I'm unable to recognize words or correctly place the dots with the letterforms.
If someone could offer the text of the image in plain text, as well as a translation, I would appreciate it.
