    jazakAllahu khayr.

    The "Islamic_" font is good. The symbols automatically fit well in the line and are better readable than the other ones I tried.

    jazakAllahu khayran.

    I'm using the "AGA Islamic Phrases" and "AGA Arabesque" font. But unfortunately both don't have the symbol for "rahimahullah". Do you have a suggestion for that?

    if you are using MS word, in font properties you can raise it by one or two points to bring to the same level of the line

    I have seen symbols for:
    -jalla jalaluhu
    -sallallahu alayhi wasallam
    -raDi'Allahu anh

    But all of the symbols I encountered till now, have the following problem. If you include them in your text, it leads to more line spacing, for the line in which the symbol is included. One solution is to make the symbol smaller in font size and increase the font size of the text in English. But this is not desirable, because the symbol is then not readable anymore and the font size of the remaining text too big.

    Is there a good solution for this?
