Al-Qur’an: The Sacred Art of Revelation

18 Aug 2006 – 18 Dec 2006

In the spirit of Ramadhan, the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia (IAMM) will officially open the exhibition Al-Qur’an: The Sacred Art of Revelation on 18 August 2006. With more than 60 outstanding artefacts selected from the IAMM collection, the exhibition offers an inspiring journey. Starting with the history of revelation and the development of Qur’anic writing, this journey continues to the most decorative section, explaining the art of the Qur’an illumination. These magnificent works demonstrate the skill of calligraphers and illuminators. The display ends with a special section on Islamic scholars who have contributed their knowledge for the betterment of mankind.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue designed to highlight the tangible and intangible beauty of Qur’an. The beauty of the Qur’an lies not only in its content and meaning, but also in its design and styles of writing. This is analysed by three renowned thinkers: Prof. Dr. Muhammad Uthman El-Muhammady, Dr. Ahmed Moustafa and Associate Prof. Dr. Dzul Haimi Md Zain.
