Art Unites: In the Name of God

Stories on artworks from Louvre Abu Dhabi’s collection: Juz’ Amma, 30th section of the Holy Quran

The Mamluk dignitaries of Cairo and Damascus ordered a number of large-sized Qurans for religious institutions. The manuscript includes the last juz’ or section of a Quran in several volumes written in the elegant cursive muhaqqaq script. The bismillah (“In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the most Merciful”) introducing each surah is written in gold letters. The titles of the chapters are in blue, as in certain Gothic Bibles.
