P1300887

This very rare and unusual manuscript at the Delhi National Museum is inscribed with the complete text of the Quran on a jacket/tunic! According to the Islamic tradition the text begins from the right sleeve by praising the almighty Allah. This entire script is handwritten in minute  lettering. All the 99 names attributed to Allah are written in big gold colour characters in red ink bordering the text!

It is spell binding and makes you wonder who had the patience and the serenity and the grace to have undertaken this massive magical manuscript! Did anyone dare to even wear it?!!!

I am not able to put a like note under any of the blogs I am now following. I just get the blog without those markings below to say 'like' what is happening? Please help
