First sura of the Koran in Nas ch

Nas ch ¥ (pronounced Nashi with ch = [⁠ χ ⁠] ) or the Nashi font ( Arabic قلم النسخ, DMG qalam an-nasḫ , orالخط النسخي, DMG 'al-ḫaṭṭ an-nasḫī , fromنسخ, DMG nasaḫa : transcribe, copy), is a calligraphic form of the Arabic script .

The first codification of script with geometric means goes back to the calligrapher Ibn Muqla (885 / 6–20 July 940). Due to its elegance and better legibility , it gradually replaced the older, less rounded Kufi as the main font for writing the Koran from the 10th century and soon developed into the dominant Arabic font . The description of the properties of the Prophet Mohammed in the Hilya was often given in the Nas ch ī ductus.
