Today, Islamic manuscripts are to be found, not only in every Islamic country and in countries with large islamic minorities, but also throughout Europe and the Americas as well as in Japan and some non-Muslim African countries.

This enormous treasure is - in many areas - in danger of being destroyed through social upheavals, political conflicts, natural causes or simply lack of proper care. It is therefore of the utmost importance that it should be documented as soon as possible.

Al-Furqan Foundation supports the edition and publication of a wide selection of manuscripts of particular significance in the Islamic heritage and facsimile editions of well preserved important manuscripts, particularly those with marked aesthetic value.
