Greetings from Pittsburgh!   :W2FPN: 

I know very little about Arabic calligraphy, except maybe Kufic (having seen medieval examples in museums).  Please explain the differences between the different styles for the rest of us.  Thanks.

In Arabic calligraphy there are about 6 script styles :  Naskh- Reqaa - Thuluth - Nastaliq - Dewani - Kufi . 
I have attached the image to see them.The writing is one sentence " Besm Allah Al Rahman Al Rahim " it means "In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful " .

 

The two formal styles that we use in our writing are Naskh and Reqaa ones  ( we use them our schools and universities) here in Egypt - but "Nastaliq" is a formal style in Iran , Pakistan,Afghanistan.

Welcome to our warm nook of the internet, where you can share this beautiful hobby with good and friendly people. Or as we say in low Saxon: Mooi a'j dr bint! (Good you're here.)

Greetings and welcome!

 

:W2FPN:


...The history, culture and sophistication; the rich, aesthetic beauty; the indulgent, ritualistic sensations of unscrewing the cap and filling from a bottle of ink; the ambient scratch of the ink-stained nib on fine paper; A noble instrument, descendant from a line of ever-refined tools, and the luster of writing,
with a charge from over several millennia of continuing the art of recording man's life.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa. 


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

I think you just haven't been here long enough.  A moderator can tell you for sure, but I think you have to have some minimum number of posts (30?) that *aren't* in the Chatter Forum to do stuff like post an avatar, use the Classifieds, etc.  

Mind you I was on here for over 5 years before I got around to putting up an avatar....  Not sure how many you need for adding a signature file, but again, I was on here for a while before I figured out what I wanted mine to be.  IIRC, you can change your profile by going to the Members link, which is found as a dropdown under the "More" link at the top of the page.  You may also get some of the information you need from Community Feedback Forum, and (in a pinch) there's a "help" link at the bottom left of the page, which I think get you contact info for the various moderators (it's been a long time since I've had to use it).

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Oh and thanks for posting links of the different scripts -- I can't *believe* that they're all the same sentence!  (And I was right -- Kufic was the one I thought it was -- I think I actually like the angularity of it best.).  I just showed them to my husband and told him that they all said the same thing and his reaction was "Wow!"

Thanks inkstainedruth for all information you have mentioned as a reply on my previous request .

 

Regarding Kufic Script , it is amazing to say that you will not need any reed pen or metal pen to use to write this Style !  We only use a Pencil , a protractor, and some kind of rulers to write it . it is a geometric Arabic calligraphy style , unlike the rest of Styles.

 

I have attached some examples to see How we write it . The attachments are for the Haa هـ Arabic letter , and لا Lam and Alif letters, the dimensions we use are millimeters to measure the letter in an intact way.

Kandil, you are going to make SMK, our resident calligraphy advocate, a very happy man. If you click on the button at the bottom left of your page where it says "Forum Guidelines" you'll find the rules. To reach gold membership, which permits signature links and avatars in your profile, "members must be registered for 30+ days and must have 30+ posts to their name in all forums but the Chatter forum (this constitutes a Gold Membership)"
