Often Qur'ans were divided into thirty sections, each called juz'. This manuscript represents portions of the twenty‑ninth juz' of such a set. A colophon survives on another section, providing the date. The text blocks on its pages consist of only five lines of muhaqqaq script, providing a sense of monumentality. Gold kufic script within illuminated frames and margin medallions distinguish the chapter headings, and gold illuminated disks mark the verses.
