Ammon News - An exhibition showcasing a selection of 50 Quran manuscripts spanning 14 centuries of Islamic civilisation from China to North Africa has been extended until the summer at the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation.

The rare works are part of the Hamid Jafar Quran Collection.

The exhibition, titled “Sacred Words, Timeless Calligraphy: Highlights of Exceptional Calligraphy from the Hamid Jafar Qur’an Collection,” showcases the craftwork and detail of key pieces of Islamic calligraphy and design.

“I am proud and honoured to be exhibiting this selection from my collection for the first time ever, doing so in my beloved Sharjah which I have taken as my home for over half a century, and to be sharing with the wider community the beauty of these remarkable works,” said Hamid Jafar, the founder and chairman of Sharjah-based Crescent Group of Companies.

The 52 works on display illustrate intricate craftwork and design, demonstrating successive breakthroughs while reflecting the aesthetics of the location and era in which they were produced.
