Islamic Khat took its inspiration from Muslim belief in the divine origin of Arabic writing, the medium through which the Qu’aranic revelation to the Prophet Muhammad was recorded. In the early years of Islam, the sanctity of Arabic writing was accepted among Arabs and non-Arabs alike, and its use in sacred and official texts gave rise to a wonderful profusion of scripts that has flourished for over a thousand years – not only in manuscript decoration but in architecture, ceramics, and painting.
