Page from a Qur’an in muhaqqaq script

The practice of copying the revelation in two inks became especially popular in 16th and 17th century Iran, as demonstrated by this work (Qur’an, 34:24-30) and the following example in this exhibition [EALoan.Gandy.310.a], where the text is written in black and gold. This trend is in fact two centuries older, and is found in the royal Qur’anic manuscripts produced for the Mongol rulers in Baghdad and Mosul, Iraq, at the very beginning of the 1300s.
