Arabic calligraphy is a form of calligraphy and handwriting based on the Arabic alphabet, and is a highly valued and respected art form in the Middle East. The reason for Arabic calligraphy’s popularity is its symmetry. The Arabic lettering and script – with their perfect balance of dots, edges, curves, and points, appear to be harmonious. It also fosters creativity and originality due to its versatility in a wide variety of shapes, forms, and designs.
Even though Arabic calligraphy is steeped in tradition, it still serves as a source of inspiration for contemporary art. Numerous contemporary calligraphers have developed their own styles and techniques based on classic Arabic calligraphy. They may reinvent the traditional Arabic letters and mediums and incorporate calligraphy into jewelry, apparel, and digital designs.
After over 14 centuries of development in various regions around the world, the letters, style, and script of Arabic calligraphy continue to evolve to the present day.

Five Popular Arabic Calligraphy Scripts
This post will discuss the history of Arabic writing and other Arabic-based alphabets such as Persian, Hausa, Pashto, and Urdu.
Riq’a is the most widely used Arabic script in the modern era. It is characterized by short horizontal stems, a rounded shape, and a dense structure. The Arabic alphabet’s first letter, Alif, is never written with barbed heads. Riq’a was the preferred script of the Ottoman calligraphers, who continued to refine it, resulting in its current popularity.
Naskh, like Kufi, was one of the first scripts used for Arabic calligraphy. It is one of the few scripts deemed suitable for use with the Quran. The Naskh script is easy to read and write. These characteristics have aided the script’s spread, from calligraphers’ rooms to the general public. Naskh is composed of short horizontal stems. The curves are deep, the letter spacing is adequate, and the vertical depth and height are almost equal.
Diwani was created in the late 15th century by Ibrahim Munif, a calligrapher of Persian and Turkish ancestry. Diwani’s most distinguishing feature is its ornamental variety.
Taliq is usually referred to as Nastaliq. It is commonly used to write Persian and Urdu, both of which have orthographies based on the Arabic alphabet.
Kufi is a script with a lot of angles. Its square shape gives it a distinct appearance. It came into existence shortly after the establishment of Basrah and Kufat, two cities in the modern Middle East.
