The present study investigates the aesthetic presence of the Arabic letter and the sacred word in the works of the One Dimension group. A quick return to the beginnings of the twentieth century shows the aspirations of the creative artists who established many doctrines, movements, and different artistic trends that were associated with philosophical, political, and economic concepts and techniques of artistic work. The bias in contemporary art trends towards the uses of letters and their employment in artwork seems inevitable and logical in changing borders. A group of artists launched in (1971) called the One Dimension Group calling for the establishment of a special method in employing letters and working to remove them from their past, reference, and system To another area is the artistic work. This trend, if there was room for theorizing, criticism, and writing, expanded into different fissures, and then grew until it took its position and formed a current that was termed the one dimension obsessed with exclusivity, and the realization of the contemporary visual achievement indicative of the nation and its great heritage of art is its empowerment From testing the capabilities of the human self and its effort in transforming the written letter that artists relied on in the formation of their works of a special nature as It often attracts the viewer's desire to deal with them visually and try to taste them artistically and enjoy them aesthetically. In addition, the plastic or constructive nature of some of these works raises in the viewer many questions that he/she finds answers to through his/her conscious awareness of the relationship between the letter and the figurative surface.

In light of this, the present study consists of the methodological framework, starting with the research problem, the significance, objectives, and limits. It also includes the theoretical framework and procedures. It ends with the most important results and conclusions
