A double sided antique Arabic manuscript leaf from the from the Holy Quran from 1300 Hijri (1882 AD). This 1 leaf with 2 pages represents the ending verses of Surat al-Raḥmān (The Compassionate) and the first verses of al-Wāqiʿah (The Event). It is in Maghrebi style (North African). The calligraphy is beautifully scripted in different colours. It measures approximately 20.0 cm x 16.5 cm.


Most scholars take all of al-Raḥmān to be a Makkan sūrah. It takes its name from the mention of the Divine Name the Compassionate at the opening, the only Divine Name to be directly equated with the Name AllāhThis sūrah is known to many Muslims as “The Bride of the Quran” after a well-known yet unauthenticated ḥadīth that says, “For everything there is a bride, and the bride of the Quran is Sūrat al-Raḥmān”.

All commentators consider al-Wāqiʿah to be a Makkan sūrah. The sūrah takes its name from the mention of the Event in v. 1, a reference to the Day of Judgment. The central theme of this sūrah is the nature of the Hereafter for three different classes of people, the foremost, the companions of the right, and the companions of the left.
