This Qur’an which probably belongs to fourteenth century Iran is written in muhaqqaq script. Each folio has seven lines with interlinear Persian translation in naskhi script. The verses 75-81of this folio belong to the tenth section of Surah al-A’raf (chapter 7), which gives the account of Prophet Salih and Lot. The marginal medallion on the verso is employed for ornamental purpose.
