UNESCO has included Arabic calligraphy in the Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
According to the report, this was announced on the Twitter page of the organization.
It should be noted that 16 Muslim countries, including Saudi Arabia, have applied for the inclusion of Arabic calligraphy in this list.
“Arabic calligraphy is the art of writing fluently in Arabic to express harmony, elegance and beauty. Twenty-eight letters of the Arabic alphabet are used in this practice, which can be transmitted through both formal and non-formal education, and the writing direction is from right to left, ”the UNESCO website said.
