Dr. Bahaa El-Din Dundis, from the Department of Studies and Research at the Sharjah Quran Academy, displays a patch of Qur’an on pink paper, In Andalusia, specifically Cordoba or Seville, probably during the Almohad period during the seventh century AH, and the thirteenth century AD.
Dendis pointed out that the manuscript was written in dark brown ink and the Andalusian script, while dots and tanween were drawn in golden ink. The names of the surahs and the number of their verses are written in kufic script and gold ink framed in black, the type of paper and the quality of the calligraphy indicate that these copies of the Qur’an were written for kings and sultans.
