Maghrebi Antique Quran Leaf Manuscript: Surat al-Araf (Dated 1878)

£60.00

A double sided antique Arabic manuscript leaf from the from the Holy Quran.  It is part of a larger book dated 1296 Hijri (1878 AD) . This 1 leaf with 2 pages represents verses of Surat al-Aʿrāf (The Heights). The text is contained in a red colored frame and is calligraphed with bold letters. The dots between verses are gold.  It measures approximately 17.5 cm x 24.5 cm. 

al-Aʿrāf is late Makkan sūrah. The content of the sūrah primarily concerns the serious consequences of rejecting the signs and messengers of God. In this context, it recounts the sacred history of prophets who had been rejected by their people and the consequent suffering and destruction of these people in this world and the next. The sūrah takes its name from the reference to the Heights (alaʿrāf), variously identified as a high place in Paradise or between Paradise and Hell.
