Nice looking font!

I don't know Arabic, so I really can't comment on the layout features ... but I'm comparing it again Amiri and the Noto fonts.

Might you consider adding the license terms into the file itself (Font => Properties => Legal)? You mentioned "Freeware" but there is nothing in the font that confirms that. Many people today are using the Open Font License ... that might be in line with your intentions and has a number of added benefits ... http://scripts.sil.org/OFL.

Hello ClintGoss

Thnak you for your nice words about my first font, as for licence very valuable information, I am new in typography field, i don't have a lot of information about licences, this is a good information i learnt from, but i have question, are there any any difference between OFL Licence and GNU (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/licenses.html), also i read about this license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by ... /legalcode)... i will attached an updated font file with OFL license soon..

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

There are differences between GPL and OFL which are not obvious at girst glance.

There is a clause in GPL which states that all things created with the GPL software must also be covered by GPL. So no commercial use. :shock:
There was some controversy about this in the open source community because it means that you couldn't use a free open source compiler to create commercial software. This is why the LGPL was created.
I would think that LGPL was a better fit for a font than GPL because with GPL if you write a book with a GPL font the book must be given away free whereas with LGPL you can create a book for sale.

OFL is specifically written with fonts in mind and is very similar to LGPL in that it allows you to write a book for money with a free font.

When choosing a license for a free font I would choose either OFL or LGPL and would not choose GPL which is actually more restrictive about the uses to which the font is put.

I hope this helps.
