Catalogues of Islamic Manuscripts

Part of the Foundation's work is to fund projects in cataloguing and set up cataloguing of private and national collections of Islamic manuscripts in various part of the world. In this section you will find handlists and descriptive catalogues of the different collections the Foundation has published.

The Foundation has continued to bring more uncatalogued collections into its cataloguing project and to place its main emphasis on areas where Islamic manuscripts are endangered and the resources to take remedial steps are lacking. 

Al-Furqan aims to achieve these goals through the study and cataloguing of collections of Islamic manuscripts that have never been catalogued and through their documentation (imaging) by using the best available technological means.
