Calligraphy, as one of the branches of fine arts, has made a unique contribution to the development of world heritage. An important role in the popularity of calligraphy, and the peculiarities of its formation as an Islamic style of art, played a ban on the image of Allah and living beings. The ban on the living image stopped the development of Muslim fine arts, however, made a significant impetus in the development of calligraphy, which plays an incredibly important role in Islamic art, because it is with its help set out the sacred meaning of the Qur'an. In the modern world, calligraphy has received a second wind, because now Arabic calligraphy is used for design: from brand logos and clothing to jewelry and decor. But it does not leave its sacred meaning. The conclusions emphasize that in Islam, "human" corporeality, alienated in art forms, is "displaced" from the artistic sphere. The ornament takes on all the bodily and plastic expression in painting, graphics and architecture. Calligraphy is not only a religious feature of the Arab world, it has given the countries of the East the opportunity to create their own unique artistic heritage, and thus transmit their spiritual and cultural values.
