  9. Kufic  is the oldest calligraphic form of the various Arabic scripts and consists of a modified form of the old Nabatean script. Its name is derived from the city of   Kufa  (in modern-day Iraq), although it was known in Mesopotamia at least 100 years before the foundation of Kufa. At the time of the emergence of   Islam , this type of script was already in use in various parts of the Arabian Peninsula. It was in this script that the first copies of the   Qur'an  were written. Archaic Kufic script became dominant by the 8th century with the rapid spread of the Quran. However it lacked diacritical signs and was eventually replaced by Naskhi, an essentially cursive script.    Square Kufic , from its origin from Archaic Kufic, retained the lack of a vowel system, but has been used to this day mainly in architectural settings. Square Kufic is also known as geometric, rectangular, rectilinear or geometric Kufic. When used to create geometric patterns with glazed tiles or mosaic, it can sometimes be referred to with a Farsi word hazarbaf. http://spacecollective.org/mslima/2882/Decoding-code
