Arabic text reads from right to left. Professionally
handwritten Arabic script - calligraphy - is an art form in     A R A D C O

to emulate its various styles. There are 28 characters in
the alphabet, all consonants, though three of them are

After the Latin script, Arabic is the most widely used
form of alphabetic writing in the modern world.

The two principal scripts, dating back to the earliest
days of Islam, are Kufic - which has a heavy, bold,
ornate style, thick, squat, angular, and unslanted and
the Naskhi, or cursive style, is the most commonly
used, and forms the basis for most other styles and
forms.

Fully accented Arabic, in which all vowels and diacritical
marks are set, is only used for religious texts and
children’s literature, to clarify the proper pronunciation
of each word.
