Dated between 570 and 667 AD, this is one of the oldest The Holy Qurans on parchment that was possibly made within one lifetime. Parchment made from goat skin is exclusive in its style and origin.  The use of cursive scripts coexisting with Kufic calligraphy is principally a means to transmit a text, albeit in a decorative form.  Regardless of size, great attention was paid to preparing the parchment to receive ink; in some cases parchment was dyed a rich colour.  Manuscripts were dyed purple, written with gold or silver ink.  Parchment was the preferred medium until the 14th century.

This The Holy Quran epitomises simplicity which is inexpungible, and immortal.
