Ancient Artifact Review 53 : Antique Middle East / Persian / Mughal Silver Tea Pot ( 19th CE)

This is a silver tea pot probably from middle east or Farsi. When I purchased this pot from a dealer, I was told it's Khaliji. However I am in doubt when I saw the engravings with some animals resembling goats. Probably it's true it's Khaliji particularly Oman as the goat is its mascot. However for sure this pot is made for Muslim due to Arabic calligraphy engraved on the upper part of the pot. I haven't deciphered the inscriptions yet. Below are the inscriptions which I managed to extract from the pot. I welcome any help on this inscription.

Dim : 220mm x160mm x 180mm
Date :  19th Century
Material :Silver engraved with arabic calligraphy and animals/foliate motives
Origin :  Middle East
Price :
