The Qur’an is often divided into sections, such as thirty sections, one to be read each day of Ramadan, the month of fasting, or seven sections, one to be read each day of the week. In this manuscript the end of each section was originally marked by an illuminated finispiece. Each page of text is written in thuluth script in gold ink outlined in black.
