Arabic
alphabets that developed in the Hejaz

region of the Arabian Peninsula, which includes the cities of Mecca
Mecca
and Medina. This type of script was already in use at the time of the emergence of Islam. It was one of the earliest scripts, along with Mashq
Mashq
and Kufic.[citation needed] The script is notably angular in comparison with other Arabic
Arabic
scripts and tends to slope to the right. The script does not yet contain any dots or diacritical marks to indicate vowel sounds: but does differentiate consonants by the intermittent use of dashes above the graphic letter forms.[citation needed]

An early Qur'anic manuscript (1st century Hegira / 8th century AD).

Māʾil (مائل, "sloping") script is a calligraphic Hijazi script found in a number of the earliest Qur'anic manuscripts. The two terms are often used interchangeably.[citation needed] See also[edit]
