Bidebian was devised by Oussamah Erradi, who lives in France but has Moroccan connections. While studying in Morocco, Oussamah rediscovered the elegance of Arabic letters and amused himself by using them to write notes in French. He wasn't entirely satisfied with the results though, and eventually came up with Bidebian, a modified version of the Arabic alphabet.

Oussamah uses Bidebian to write notes in French to his wife, after whom he named this alphabet.
