I have mainly seen three types of poetry writing formats in Urdu. I suppose, Urdu is similar to Persian and Arabic.

Examples of formats:

  1. All verses centered. Single verse per line.

  1. Two columns. Two verses per line (side by side).

My question is simple: Is there some formal terminology for describing these formats?

  • The font style is called Nastaliq. I don't think left/right justification is anything unique. Also Arabic is not related to Urdu or Persian other than the script and a few loan words. – AML Aug 17 at 0:35
