8.TheGlorious Quran is one of the precious art-works of India. It is really an elaborated art-work. This elaborated copy contains 339 pages, of which 68 have been illuminated and decorated with painting, and the remaining pages have been decorated with a cloudy margin. The mentioned copy was dedicated to the Astan Quds Razavi by "Sultan Ibrahim Qutb Shah" in the month of Rabi Ul Awwal in 970 A.H. In addition to the excellent illumination applied in this copy, two golden and azure grounds can be seen in it. The brighter golden line contains a deeper golden ground around which (its letters) a black line has been so beautifully drawn that a few people can understand the reality of that art because of the delicacy and narrowness of the pen applied in it.
This completely translated Glorious Quran is a unique and matchless from the viewpoint of illumination art applied in decorating the copy. The commentary of "Kholasat Ul Minhaj" compiled by "Mulla Fathullah Kashani", has been written on the margin of the book.
From the view points of illumination art, delicacy, and carefulness, this copy is one of the most elaborated and precious translated manuscripts of the Glorious Quran secured in Manuscript Treasury of the library.
