Two handwritten Holy Qurans, one estimated to be 700 years old, were found in the library of a school in the Zile district of Turkey’s Tokat. The Qurans will be delivered to the Directorate of Foundations.
Speaking to A Haber news agency about the discovery, Tokat Provincial Director of National Education Murat Küçükali said: “The Holy Quran manuscripts are handwritten. One of them is 700 years old, and experts estimate the other one as around 400 years old because the date from the page was destroyed.”
“They were found in the archive of the library of our Zile Imam Hatip High School. The works were immediately set aside to prevent further decay or damage. We contacted the Regional Directorate of Foundations soon after. The works will be delivered to the directorate,” he stated.
