Maghrebi script or Maghribi script (Arabic: الخط المغربي) refers to a family of Arabic scripts that developed in the Maghreb (North Africa), al-Andalus (Iberia), and Biled as-Sudan (the West African Sahel). The script is directly derived from the Kufic script and is characterized by rounded letter forms, extended horizontal features, and final open curves below the baseline. For centuries, Maghrebi script was used to write Arabic manuscripts and record Andalusi and Moroccan literature, whether in Classical Arabic or Maghrebi Arabic languages.
Diacritics are glyphs or marks added to the letter whilst vowel points are marks added to indicate the vowels in Arabic or Hebrew languages.
