This is a genuine antique Ottoman calligraphy on paper from the 18th century or earlier. The manuscript was mounted on a panel long time ago to preserve the folio which was in a fragile state. The calligrapher has used two different styles as can be seen from the pictures. In the middle there is short sentence (in Arabic) in praise and appreciation of God for his grace, which is done in "thulth" style.
The rest of the writing which is in "naskh" style is a religious saying (again, in Arabic) attributed to the prophet. There is a translation of this hadith in English, written with pencil on the back of the cardboard panel (see the photo), although it is not very easy to read.
