Using Kufic script, the language used was Arabic; each chapter is separated using rectangular bands boldened with gold and a minaret at the end of each rectangle, clearly showing that the reading of The Holy Quran was for easy access to all. The designs clearly reveal the architecture used in mosques.  The script used Kufic and the language was Arabic, written between 765 AD – 855 AD. Bamboo proved a convenient writing material, was easy to obtain as the size of The Holy Quran made the process easy as for a small document, two lines of thread link each bamboo strip and their surfaced waxed and smoothed.
