Two Illuminated leaves of the Koran. On each of these folios is the first surah of the Qur'an , the recitation of which forms a prominent part of daily worship. While these folios appear to be frontispieces, their backs are untouched , making it unlikely they were ever included in a codex.
Gift of H. Khan Monif, 1928
