Qur’an Exhibition in Berlin

The Museum of Islamic Art at the Pergamon Museum Berlin, Germany, is hosting an exhibition of the holy Qur’an.
Titled ‘Words to Read - Words to Feel’, the exhibit, with a focus on writing the Qur’an, is notable in terms of history and art researches. Furthermore, it provides a general view of the Arabic and Islamic scripts in different eras, IBNA reported.
With the exhibition, the museum offers an introduction to the Qur’an through a selection of rarely exhibited objects. On display are precious Qur’an pages andvarious objects that together account for the multiple facets of the Holy scriptures; of its history as a book, and of its reception and usage beyond the limits of the written word.
The Museum of Islamic Art is the only institution of its kind in Germany.It houses one of the world’s finest collections of Islamic art from nearly all regions of Islamic rule.
Its collections are especially rich in objects from an architectural context including the unique dome from the Alhambra Palace in Granada (Spain) and 13th-century prayer niches from Kashan (Iran) and Konya (Turkey). The collection also has a large number of important Ottoman and Persian carpets and bibliographical works of art.
Launched on April 29, the exhibition will run through July 24.
