Arabic
: رقعة‎‎) is a calligraphic variety of Arabic
Arabic
script . The Ruqʿah style of handwriting is the most common type of handwriting. It is known for its clipped letters composed of short, straight lines and simple curves, as well as its straight and even lines of text. It was probably derived from the Thuluth
Thuluth
and Naskh styles. It is clear and legible, and is the easiest script for daily handwriting. The demonstration underneath is not typical since it uses full vowels, which are rarely used in handwriting.

Ruqʿah is also known as Ottoman Font in Turkey and most of the documents from Ottoman Empire era are written in Riq'ah. It has emerged from Mashriq
Mashriq
region of the empire. Due to ease of writing, Ruqʿah was the most common font in Ottoman Turkey. It is used in the titles of books and magazines, in commercial advertisements, and in the holidays, diplomas awarded to students of calligraphy.
