Another Muslimgauze shirt translation!

There is a shirt which portrays this piece of Islamic calligraphy. It's not the same as the traditional Lion calligraphy that I've seen around - can anyone translate for me? previously

There is a basmallah in its head that goes to its hindquarters. I'm a bit ill with a cold today and am having trouble turning my brains around to make out much else, sorry.

Also, some searching reveals that it is actually a tiger, and probably done by Hassan Massoudy.

And I don't think google will be much help in finding a translation because my previous comment is already showing up in the second page of results for "Massoudy tiger".

The word God is reasonably clear in the area that forms the tiger's mouth, but the rest is really hard to make out. It's a very abstract piece of art. I've asked my Persian friend who's knowledgeable about Arabic poetry to take a look and will post back if he's able to make anything out.
