Here is a 2018 JAAS article that links Sudanese thuluth decoration to Persian Sufi (Qajar) weapons influence. While good info is presented, I think the link is very speculative. Mainly because Sudanese sufi traditions came from Arabian sufi masters rather than Persian. Also, my reading of Sudanese history doesn't support Persian influence unless the Persians critically influenced the Ottomans of Egypt. Anyway, the article's position is worth adding to the debate.

JAAS Vol.XXII, No. 5, 2018.
