Omar Type [Muhammad Zuhair Albazi]

Arabic type foundry. Typefaces include Muhammad Musa Albazi Naskh and Zuhair Albazi Naskh. They specialize in true calligraphic Tatweel typefaces.

Muhammad Zuhair Albazi is based in Lahore, Pakistan. He made the Naskh font Musa Albazi Naskh (2009). He also created Adobe Naskh. His main Arabic typeface to date is Zuhair Albazi Naskh, an advanced OpenType Arabic typeface, which is based on the Ottoman manuscript. He writes: This unique typeface contains an unmatched range of features known from the Arabic script. It is not merely a font but an ultimate typesetting and design tool for the Arabic script in classic Naskh style, with letters variants and calligraphic styles, specifically developed to take advantage of the extensive functionality for Naskh Arabic typography. The typeface allowd many controls such as shape alternates, space adjustments, mark placements, and swashes. Two very special features: Calligraphic Naskh kashida (Tatweel) upto three levels of elongations, so the Kashida distribution and frequence can be precisely controlled to create Arabic calligraphic documents without a calligrapher; thousands of kerning pairs for the fine adjustment of letters specially after Raa, Zaa, Waw and before Kaaf.

In 2017, he published Omar Naskh and writes: Omar Naskh is an amazing Naskh font having full Unicode support for Arabic script till Unicode version 9.0. The font covers all the languages of Arabic Script like Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Pashto, Sindhi, Saraiki, Kazakh, Uyghur, Punjabi, Khowar (Chitrali), Malay (Jawi), Balochi, Brahui, Kurdi (Kurdish), Kashmiri (Koshur), Kirghiz, Ozbek, Turkmen and Gawri (Kalami).
