In the heart of Arab history lies the art of Arabic calligraphy

The liturgical language of the Islamic religion is Arabic. Usually, it is composed from right to left in cursive form, with some of the letters joined at the beginning, middle, or end depending on the grammar or usage of the letter or word. In the absence of any background in the language, you may come across Arabic characters written from left to right instead of from right to left. This is because they were originally written. The Arabic script may also be replaced with other symbols rather than the Arabic script itself.

Arabic is second in use only to the Roman alphabet and is understood by over 422 million people worldwide. Many of the Arabic-speaking peoples live in the countries that comprise the League of Arab States, while other Arabic-speaking peoples originate in neighboring countries, namely, Iran, Niger, South Sudan, Mali, Chad, Senegal, Ethiopia, Eritrea, as well as some Arabic-speaking communities in the West. The Arabic writing system comes in various forms, such as the Arabic alphabet, Arabic Braille, the Hebrew alphabet (Judaeo-Arabic) and the Syriac alphabet (Garshuni).

There are many factors that contribute to the high distinctiveness of the Arabic alphabet. Firstly, it is derived from the Aramaic Nabataean alphabet, while it is also related to Latin, Phoenician, and Greek alphabets. Supplementary languages such as Urdu, Persian, Malay and others, also use adaptations of Arabic script. Calligraphy, or decorative writing as it is known in the Arabic world, is considered to be one of the highest forms of art in the world. In many ways, it symbolizes the centuries-old tradition, culture, and beliefs of the Arab people throughout the world. It can also be portrayed as a definitive art form, with letters and words encrypted into an image.

Arabic Calligraphy has been developed and forged throughout history. It has been influenced by varied civilizations and periods. If one were to track its development over time, one would see how it has been shaped by the influence of others. I believe that it has affected other cultures in its own way, in its own way.

There is a long history of calligraphy in Arabic, which can be traced back to a culture dedicated to its craft. It is through Arabic calligraphy that the past world of the past is brought into connection with the present world. Prodigious calligraphers create their work in as intricate and complex a way as the rich history and culture of the Arabs is.

Over the long and varied history of Arabic Calligraphy, six different styles developed. These are Farsi, Naskhi, Kufic, Diwanii, Riq’a and Thuluth. These six styles of script form the heart of Arabic Calligraphy, ranging from the ‘dry’ Kufic styles through to the softer, cursive styles of Naskh and Thuluth, with each variant having its own individual style.

In addition, each script requires the appropriate writing instrument in order to be produced. This can be anything from point pens (e.g. Nashki) to bamboo pens (e.g. Thuluth). While Arabic calligraphy has bestowed its treasure on the western world, it also represents the Muslim way of art and beliefs.

In every culture and tradition, a piece of art contains a voice from the past. Art is the way of expression. The ways of life, the spoken language, the gods and governments have all been recorded through art. Even though technology has now become the focus of people’s minds and lives, it is not possible to disregard the power of art, especially Arabic Calligraphy. This is because art traces back to the beginning of civilization and history.
