The style of diplomacy is seen from its factors (1) Participant: if the letter is addressed to a non-Arab king, the reverence greeting is clearly mentioned, whereas to the ruler in the Arabian Peninsula, only the mention of nasab (lineage). (2) Setting: for letters to non-Arabic kings, not using the association language, while to the Arab king, using it.
