Rare Qur’an Manuscripts Found in Yemen

Yemen’s culture minister said 1250 copies of rare Qur’an manuscripts have been discovered in the country’s capital.
Arwa Othman said the manuscripts, which date back to the 14th and 15th centuries C.E., were found in Salahaddin Mosque in Sana’a, while some manuscripts are gilded and some written on parchment, IQNA reported.
She noted that Yemen has a rich collection of old Islamic manuscripts and copies of books, and “it is necessary to preserve them.”
Yemen’s Archives Center in Sana’a already holds hundreds of manuscript copies of the Holy Qur’an. Some of the copies date back to the early years of the advent of Islam. Many of the manuscripts are rare copies written on parchment, vellum or calfskin.
It is said that the oldest surviving manuscript of the Holy Qur’an is in Yemen.
