About Scheherazade New

Scheherazade New is a traditional naskh typeface, supporting all Arabic script characters in Unicode 14.0. It is named after the heroine of the classic Arabian Nights tale.

In May 2022, the font has been upgraded, offering a more extensive glyphset.

The April 2023 upgrade brings two new weights: Medium and SemiBold. The language support is also improved.

This font was developed by SIL, and you can learn more about it at To contribute, see
