Events

The initial aim of al-Furqan Foundation was to document and preserve the Islamic written heritage, principally focusing on the cataloguing, surveying, editing and publishing of Islamic manuscripts. However, the involvement of scholars, the general public and institutions became an essential component in the activities of al-Furqan, due to the need to inform the demanding users of the Foundation, about the results, findings and methods of its work.

In this section the Foundation presents the events organised within the three centres regarding the main activities of al-Furqan, namely the involvement of scholars and librarians in training courses focused on the cataloguing and editing of Islamic manuscripts and the preservation of the Islamic heritage; the organisation of symposia and lectures on various aspects and topics related to the fields of the three centres; and the promotion of awards and honours to support and encourage researchers and academics on the study of those subjects.

In addition to the above, al-Furqan organises other events with the aim of involving the local community in the Foundation’s activities and to spread its works and publications to the interested general public, i.e. by the participation at International Book Fairs and the organisation of special exhibitions.
