Tareq Rajab Museum

The Tareq Rajab Museum of Islamic Art, and the Tareq Rajab Museum of Islamic Calligraphy.

Islamic Calligraphy

Islamic Calligraphy

The Tareq Rajab Museum houses a large collection of Qur’ans and manuscripts from a variety of periods and countries across the Islamic World. Our collection highlights the history and advancement of the calligraphic arts, from its humble beginnings to the very height of cultural, artistic, linguistic and theological expression. This includes writings from Yaqut Al Musta’simi, of which few survive today, with remarkable importance to its development.

The ability to read Arabic does not limit one’s appreciation for the beauty and elegance of calligraphy that can be found all around the world.
