Arabic Classification?

Hi everyone, i am looking for information about Arabic Typeface Classification. Did it really exist? In analogy of Latin typeface classification such us Serif and Sans, Display and Text, Blacklatter, Whiteletter etc. Links are also accepted.

Thanks,
Gunarta

No real or comprehensive classification of Arabic typefaces exists yet.

If you read Arabic you can see some useful information at Khaled Muhammad Khaled blog, especially part III below:
