Here he was interested in subjects such as logic, mathematics, astronomy and linguistics. Safiyeddin also continued learning the musical art and was also very successful in calligraphy. In the beginning he was quite famous not in music but in calligraphy and was invited to the palace of Caliph Mutasım, the last representative of the Abbasil dynasty. after a short time he was appointed director and chief calligrapher.
