Beautiful and Free
What I want to introduce here are not a bunch of links to some Arabic-looking “exotic” Latin-script fonts. The fonts here are true Arabic fonts ready to be used in any Arabic or Persian (Farsi) layout.
As you might have noticed there are not that many companies making Arabic fonts. The reason for that might be the fact that one cannot make any money by designing Arabic or Persian typefaces. So most of the efforts in this field is done by a few companies (like Linotype, Monotype, and some others) outside the Middle East. I list them all in the near future in another post about commercial Arabic and Persian (Farsi) fonts, but here I introduce the available free fonts I find most useful. Some of them are made by support from the local governments (Uthman, Nastaliq, Neirizi) and some others are made by individuals. Most of them can be used for styling text in any Arabic-script language including Arabic, Persian (Farsi), Dari, Kurdish (Sorani), Punjabi, Pashto, Urdu, Kashmiri, Sindhi, and Uyghur.
