This early The Holy Quran with golden borders and a division at the end of each chapter with a rectangular division, golden band and a design inside the golden band.  Each page has golden dots of different diameter depicting the prominent verses, bigger golden dots depict alternative accounts and interpretations of events. The Holy Quran describes itself as a book of guidance.  The script here is cryptic The Holy Quranic narrative using Hijazi.  The parchment used here is palimpsests which had been reused.  A change of rhyme from one set of verse to another signals a change in the subject.  Hand-written using opaque colour.  No intricate designs are found here, paper is burnished with cakmak muhre.  Around  the period of 1700 – 1827 AD.  Important red script on the margins clearly is the important vital piece of note found in this The Holy Quran.
