Harmattan is designed in a Warsh style to suit the needs of languages using the Arabic script in West Africa. A type sample showing an inventory of some of the unusual of glyphs and features can be seen here: design type samples.
Harmattan is currently available in Regular weight only.
The Harmattan font does not contain complete coverage of all the characters defined in Unicode for Arabic script. Because the font style is specifically intended for West Africa, the character set for this font is aimed at West African languages. Thus, Asia-specific characters are not included.

See Character Set Support for the full listing.
It is impossible for us to add every glyph that every person desires, but we do place a high priority on adding complete coverage of all the characters defined in Unicode for West African Arabic script use (excluding the Arabic Presentation Forms blocks, which are not recommended for normal use). You can send us your requests, but please understand that we are unlikely to add symbols where the user base is very small, unless they have been accepted into Unicode.
