Dear mzishannasar ,

Actually nice font, but can I suggest you to change the shape of "Dot"/"nogta" as below:

Thanks.

Indeed. The dots stand out.
Anyway, I would strongly recommend new design of the numerals. The currently existing stand out (once again) too much - formally, aesthetically and ideologically - from the rest of the project. In short: they don't fit into your Father's calligraphy, they destroy it. Take a look at Renaissance numerals, maybe at Garamond...

Dear Ali Moshref!
First of all I am grateful to you liking my work.
As for as the style of dot/Nuqta is concern I think the style shown by you in picture is actually a Shikasta Style not a Nastlique Style.

My father is Internationally award holder calligrapher in Nastalique type of Calligraphy. So, He knows very well that which type of dot is used in Nastalique font.

even then I will discuss this matter with my father...!
Thanks again...!

Overall texture of the font seems pretty good compared to other urdu fonts. How did you handle kernings and collisions between dots and letter shapes?
Good work :)

PS: Your photos are too high in resolution and they run out of the browser window, why don't you upload password protected PDFs so anyone could take a deeper look on your work?
