Additional Details

The writing of Quranic verses took place during the time of the Prophet Muhammad (S).
The term “کتابت القرآن” refers to the inscription of the verses of Quran using various calligraphic styles on different writing surfaces available during the time of revelation, such as stone, bone, palm leaves, and more. The individuals involved in this process were a group of prominent companions of the Prophet Muhammad (S). They worked under the supervision and guidance of the Prophet.
In the early years of the Hijri calendar, Quranic texts were written in the Kufic script on animal skins. For the first five centuries, the writing was exclusively done in the Kufic script. The early Quranic manuscripts lacked diacritical marks and vowel signs. Some features of these early Quranic manuscripts include:

  •  The script used in all the Qurans of this era is Kufic.
  • These Qurans are written on parchment.
  • The size of the pages in these Qurans varies.
  • Some of the Kufic scripts in these Qurans include diacritical marks, while others do not.
  • Decorations at the beginning of the chapters are in a rectangular form, and the names of the chapters are written in Kufic script.
  • The scribe (Katib) of these Qurans is unknown.
  • Some of these Qurans feature stars as decorations.
