The Diwani script is considered one of the most important types of Arabic fonts that fall within our contemporary life.

it is characterised by softness and voluptuousness, flowing, and extending its dimensions on the surface of the painting to form a wonderful image of beauty.
It was called Diwani because it was issued by the Royal Court of ottoman caliphate. All the translations and permutations were written only by Diwani script.
