Sharjah 24: The Holy Quran Academy (HQA) in Sharjah includes a precious museum of Quran embracing a rare collection of precious antique Qurans, where we will get close to it through 8 episodes during the Precious Manuscripts programme presented by “Sharjah 24” on Tuesdays and Thursdays of every week throughout Ramadan.
In the last episode, Dr. Bahaa El-Din Dundis, from the Department of Studies and Research at the Sharjah Quran Academy, reviews a double patch of the Quran dating back to the Seljuk period in the fifth or sixth century AH/11th or 12th CE, written on parchment in Eastern Kufic script.

Dundis explains, that the points were written in black ink, and the declensions were drawn with orange ink, and the breaks of the verses were made in brown ink.
