Islamic calligraphy is the artistic practice of handwriting and calligraphy. It is therefore based upon the alphabet in the lands sharing either a common Islamic or cultural heritage. Hence it includes Arabic, Ottoman, and Persian calligraphy. They call the Islamic writing khatt Islami in Arabic, which means Islamic line, design, and construction. The development of Islamic calligraphy is also strongly tied to the Quraan.
The Arabic saying, “Purity of writing is purity of the soul” vividly describes the status of the master calligrapher in Islamic society. Arabs believed that only a person of spiritual devotion and clear thought could achieve the skill for this supreme art. The most talented of calligraphers attained honorable positions as either scribes in the Imperial Palace or as teachers of Imperial rulers. Three great calligraphers from Baghdad founded the Islamic calligraphy; the Vizier Ibn Muqla (886–940) of the Abbasid court, Ibn al-Bawwab, and Yakut al-Musta’simi of Amasya (d. 1298).
