      Jawi/Urdu/Arabic Kaligrafi (Khat)


      Dear Friends
      Referring to the picture shown at:
      http://www.sepaku.net/E1/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=30
      you see 2 words: One Arabic Word in 3 different Styles: 2 Computerized and one Calligraphed (top
      This 4-letter word begins with the egg-shaped letter (Sad) and ends with TaMarboota
      The second letter has 2 arms (upper and lower) and the third looks like j without dot

      Which word is more attractive, shorter (less horizontal) and more comfortable to the eyes
      ...
      ...
      That's right: The Top
      ...
      ...
      Why? For 4 reasons:
      the upper-arm of the seconed letter shouldered the first letter that happily hoped on
      the lower arm of the second letter curved slightly to join the third letter, and
      the third letter coiled itself slightly to fill (kill) the gap it makes with the last letter
      The last letter moved up and right as she always likes to be snuggled
      ...
      ...
      Slight yet Smart Changes?
      ...
      ...
      By and large, in order to join appropriately to neighbouring letters (where applicable).
      Letter Tails (not heads) slightly change to achieve smooth connection, and
      Meem, Ha and likewise letters (Jeem and Kha) shoulder earlier Letters

      Technically Speaking, the first 2 letters are ligatured and the last 2 letters are kerned
      Ligatures integrate 2 or more letters into one and Kerning narrows the gap between 2 letters

      To see all the Calligraphical possibilities of each and every Arabic Alphabet, click here:
      http://qurankareem.info/a/OthmanyFonts.zip
      For example, in PageQ1.ttf, the Characters within the range from Alt+0185 to Alt+0201 read One letter— the egg-like (Sad)— but with

      slightly different tails.

      Hope I have succeeded in clarifying 2 factors often neglected by Arabic/Jawi font designers.
      Questions? Comments? Suggestions?
      Looking forward to translatin this thread into your native langauge here.
      Many Thanks in anticipation

      Re: Jawi/Urdu/Arabic Kaligrafi (Khat)


      Here is a line by line translation into Malay Language thankfully translated by Syilla from Malaysia.

      The attached picture shows One Arabic Word in 3 different Styles: 2Computerized and one Calligraphed (top)
      (Gambar yang dikepilkan menunjukkan satu huruf arab dalam 3 stail yang berlainan : 2 dikomputerkan (agaknya diimbas (scan)) dan satu kaligrafi (diatas).


      This 4-letter word begins with the egg-shaped letter (Sad) and ends with õ
      (4 huruf bermula dengan huruf berbentuk telur (Sad-huruf jawi) dan diakhiri dengan õ


      The second letter has 2 arms (upper and lower) and the third looks like j without dot
      (Huruf kedua ada dua lengan (diatas dan dibawah) dan yang ketiga seperti j tanpa titik)


      Which word is more attractive, shorter (less horizontal) and more comfortable to the eyes
      (HUruf mana yang lebih nampak menarik, lebih pendek dan lebih sedap mata memandang)
      ...
      ...
      That's right: The Top
      (Ya betul : Yang di atas)
      ...
      ...
      Why? For 4 reasons:
      (Kenapa? Ada 4 sebab)

      the upper-arm of the seconed letter shouldered the first letter that happily hoped on
      (Lengan atas bagi huruf kedua memberi tumpang kepada huruf pertama)

      the lower arm of the second letter curved slightly to join the third letter, and
      (lengan dibawah bagi huruf kedua sedikit melengkung untuk bersambung dengan huruf ketiga, dan)


      the third letter coiled itself slightly to fill (kill) the gap it makes with the last letter
      (Huruf ketiga berlingkar sendiri sedikit untuk memenuhi ruang kosong dan menjadikan huruf terakhir)


      The last letter moved up and right as she always likes to be snuggled
      (Huruf terakhir berada diatas dan dikanan kerana dia suka meringkuk dgn selesa)
      ...
      ...
      Slight yet Smart Changes?!
      (sedikit tapi perubahan yang bijak)
      ...
      ...
      By and large, in order to join appropriately to neighbouring letters (where applicable
      (untuk menyambung dengan huruf-huruf yang bersebelahan (dimana sesuai))

      Letter Tails (not heads) slightly change to achieve smooth connection, and
      (Ekor huruf diubah untuk menghasilkan sambungan yang lancar dan rata)


      Meem, Ha and likewise letters (Jeem and Kha) shoulder earlier Letters
      (Meen, Ha dan huruf Jeem dan Kha menumpangkan huruf sebelumnya)


      Technically Speaking, the first 2 letters are ligatured and the last 2 letters are kerned
      (Secara teknikalnya, 2 huruf yang pertama diikat dan huruf kedua terakhir di keluarkan sedikit)


      Ligatures integrate 2 or more letters into one and Kerning narrows the gap between 2 letters
      (Pengikatan memerlukan 2 atau lebih huruf menjadi satu dan pemanjangan mengurangkan ruang diantara 2 huruf)


      Hope I have succeeded in clarifying 2 factors often neglected by Arabic/Jawi font designers
      (Saya berharap saya telah berjaya dalam penerangan 2 faktor yang selalunya diabaikan oleh penulis khat arab/jawi)

      All the Best
      (Semoga Berjaya)
