This is a mini handwritten Quran acquired from Lebanon in 2008.
Scroll down to see the full spec.
The thing that make this Quran interesting is its small hexagonal size. Its dimension is 30 x x 35 mm. This is a rare piece. This Quran is nicely written in black ink and heading in red. At the end of the page , the name of the copiyst is stated but I couldn't decipher it due to its small writing. The date is 1050 AH (1640CE)
