Sharjah24: Holy Quran Academy (HQA) in Sharjah includes a precious museum of Qur’an embracing a collection of precious antique Qur’ans, where we will get close to it through 8 episodes during the Precious Manuscripts programme presented by “Sharjah 24” on Tuesdays and Thursdays of every week throughout Ramadan.
Dr. Bahaa El-Din Dundis, from the Department of Studies and Research at the Sharjah Quran Academy, reviews a double patch of the Qur’an dating back to the Seljuk period in the 5th century AH/11th CE written on parchment in Eastern Kufic script, which is the early stages of the Kufic script.
Dandis explains, that Arabic diacritics were in red ink in the form of small dots, small commas between verses in a form of a golden dot, and a red frame, and the names of the surahs were written in golden ink.
