    China to build museum to preserve Quran copy



    1,000-year-old copy of the Quran


    16 Feb 2012

    BEIJING: A county in northwest China will spend four million yuan (around $635,000) to build a museum for the preservation of a 1,000-year-old copy of the Quran.

    Officials from Dongxiang county in Gansu province said the money will be used to build an 800-square-metre museum with exhibition halls and digital display systems.

    The ancient copy of the Quran, written in Arabic and comprising 536 pages, was discovered in Dongxiang in 2009, Xinhua reported.

    Experts from China, Britain and Japan have analysed the document and said it was likely created between the 9th and 11th centuries.

    The museum will use advanced methods to preserve the ancient holy book and slow down its deterioration.

    Construction on the museum is scheduled to start in April and will finish by the end of the year.

    "The copy has been classified as a cultural property under national protection and is likely to be one of the earliest copies of the Quran in existence," said Imam Ma Qingfang, a local religious leader.

    Ma said he has refused outside offers for the document, believing it to be priceless and referring to it as the "book of soul" for the people of Dongxiang.

    "The document is of great significance for the study of the history of Dongxiang's ethnic groups, the history of Islam in China and Chinese civilization," said Chen Hailong, deputy head of the county administration.

        Oldest pieces of the Quran discovered The Quran pieces have been found in the cellars of Sanaa’s Great Mosque. 2/11/2013 The oldest excerpts from the Quran have been discovered in the cellars of the Yemeni capital Sanaa’s Great Mosque, daily Bugün has reported, adding that former Turkish Religious Affairs Director Tayyar Altıkulaç has gone to examine the pieces. “Workers saw the Quran pieces when they opened the cellar. Why do we call them pieces? Because in the early periods of Islam, there were not too many Qurans and people used to read it by cutting it into pieces. These pieces were worn down as they were transferred from person to person. After the development of writing, Qurans increased in number and these pieces were gathered and kept in a place. When the door of the cellar was opened, snakes came out. The cellar has a window and water came in from there. This is why some of these pieces decomposed and got dirty,” said Altıkulaç, underlining the importance of the discovery. According to the daily, the pieces of the holy book were discovered during restoration works that started on the mosque after a collapse in the structure. Some of the pieces have previously been sold at London auction houses by former governors, he said. “The Quran pieces need restoration at the moment. They have been kept randomly in 20 sacks.” He said the pieces were under the responsibility of the Yemeni Culture Ministry and that they should be handled one by one and restored. “Some of the Quran pieces are from the companions of the Prophet Muhammed and some date back to second and third centuries. They are very important sources for the academic world,” he said. www.hurriyetdailynews.com/old...=238&nid=40882
