Description

The Well-Travelled Quran is a beautifully illustrated, large sized hardcover book. It  celebrates the endurance of Kalam Allah (the word of God, i.e. the Quran). 
 
Allah’s Word was revealed for the last time, to the final Messenger, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Within two centuries of the founding of the Islamic empire, Muslims had spread the message of Islam from east: at the border of China all the way to west: Spain and the shores of Atlantic.
 
The secret of Chinese paper-making, first passed onto the Muslims in Baghdad, created an ‘information explosion’ that reverberated throughout Dar Al-Islam. Inexpensive paper permitted the dissemination of Kalam Allah and eventually, the transcription of hundreds of thousands of Ahadith. The Islamic world soon developed a creative and literate culture of high civilization.
 
This story chronicles the nine hundred year long odysseys of a beautiful handwritten Qur’an produced in Cordoba in the 11th century. The plight of the Moriscos (Arabic Al- Muriskiyyun), the last Muslims of Al- Andalus, becomes an integral part of the amazing story of the well-travelled Qur’an.
