The Provision of Using the Ottoman Calligraphy in Transcribing the Holy Quran

Auther : Prof. Ali Thurian Al Enazi

The research discusses an issue, which is one of the most important issues related to transcribing the Holy Quran. As a matter of fact, this issue has been extremely worsened, and there is a dire need to elaborate as it is related to the Ottoman calligraphy agreed on. This issue is about the provision of using the Ottoman calligraphy in transcribing the Holy Quran, versus the provision of not adhering to the Ottoman calligraphy and transcribing according to writing and orthography rules, whether in transcribing the whole book of the Holy Quran “Mus’haf”, or only some of its Holy verses “Ayat” outside “Mus’haf”. To elaborate this issue, the research starts to pave the way for this elaboration by an introduction for reviewing discrimination between the Ottoman calligraphy and the standard calligraphy, and then followed by five themes in terms of elaborating this issue. The research also follows the inductive method, deductive method, and comparative editorial method. The research concludes with the extracted results; one of the most prominent results is that the most likely views, in accordance with the aims of Shariah, and the most balanced in terms of immoderateness and remissness in the provision of using the Ottoman calligraphy in transcribing Quran, is the view that it shall be differentiated between two matters: a) Transcribing the whole “Mus’haf”, and the most likely provision in this term is the desirability of transcribing in the Ottoman calligraphy, and transcribing in any other calligraphy is disapproved. b) Transcribing the private “Mus’hafs” or writing the Holy Verses “Ayat” outside “Mus’haf” and the most likely view in this term is the possibility of transcribing the holy verses in accordance with the approved orthography rules, even if contradicted with the transcription of “Mus’haf” in some verses. After that, recommendations are written and represented in the following: paying attention to teaching the rules of Ottoman calligraphy in faculties of Arabic language studies, as well as the centers, interested in the standard transcribing rules (The known orthographic transcription). Moreover, it is very important to make sure of transcribing the holy verses “Ayat” in the scientific and academic researches and theses in the ottoman calligraphy, as well as facilitating the process of inputting the ottoman calligraphy fonts in the systems of the computerized Typing applications, in addition to recommending the advocators of the view of using the ottoman calligraphy to set out a branched issue of that view, which is: is there any effect of using the ottoman calligraphy on the change of meanings? Finally, the research concludes with a list of references. The key Words : Calligraphy – Transcribing - The whole “Mus’haf” - Proof - Effort
