Tawqee’ Muyassar script style

AL-Fatih verse had been written by Tawqee’ Muyassar script style, which its characters are beautiful and a combination of Thuluth and Nasikh. This style had been known by Yusuf al-Shajari during the reign of Abbasid Caliph al-Ma’mun. It was named as “Al-Reyasi”, and currently “Ijazah”. Yacoub Abu Shawrieh made some changes to such script style at line system in terms of separating word from the next one to be easily read, and avoiding difficulties that the reader may face while reading the Quran.

Nasikh Script

The beautiful “Nasikh” script written by calligraphist “Yacoub Abu Shawrieh” with respect to these parts of Quran combines a variety of different artworks, and extensive study of classical Nasikh methods by a well-studied artistic integration of famous Quran calligraphers’ styles of Ottoman Empire such as Hafiz Othman, Ismail al-Zuhdi, Mahmoud Jalal Eddin, Mustafa Izzat Qadi Askar, Mohammed Shawki, Hamed Al Amadi (may Allah have mercy on them). The style you find in these Quranic verses diminishes the spirit of these great statures in the art of Arabic calligraphy, and puts it in a beautiful suit selected in beautiful lines and great improvement. Thus, the script style of Yacoub Abu Shawrieh became famous and known to critics of this great art, even if he did not subscribe on his writing, because Yacoub Abu Shawrieh has followed the example of the first golden generation of art of calligraphy’s masters, and studied their styles. You can see the classical characteristic in his script and know it in his writings. The improvisational style that characterized the calligrapher Yacoub Abu Shawrieh, and the artistic courage to evoke the forms of letters, parts and their artistic actions have distinguished these parts with a different artistic touch than what we find in the writings of Holy Quran at present time. The typography that characterizes these letters distinguishes them and brings them closer to classical and spiritual in Nasikh, where letters of words were processed in a precise and thoughtful manner to fit the print and aesthetic standards in terms of design aspects of Quran pages and graphical of different verses.
