Default Arabic/naskhi engraved on medieval sword ? .

Who could help me with those inscriptions ?,
This sword around 1500-1550 with brass hilt have , older medieval blade and later replaced grip. The sword seems to had been made unusable ( quillons and edges broken)probably after a lost bataille.
The hilt, with inscription.
Could it be Arabic/naskhi characters engraved on the hilt ? It will confirm the hypothesis that this sword was captured and destroyed by Ottoman

Any comment on it will be welcome

Salaams Cerjak.. This looks like an amazing sword...The inscription does not seem to be in any Arabic caligraphy style save possibly some sort of Armoury mark. I would float this on the European.

The blade looks amazingly like Sudanese kaskara.
