Jeddah: The holy city of Madinah will soon have a state-of-the-art Qur’an museum with impressive facilities, said Prince Sultan bin Salman, president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA). “It will be first of its kind in the world,” the prince added. He said, the project dubbed as the “Oasis of the Holy Qur’an” would be established in cooperation with the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, the Madinah governorate and other related departments. The SCTA recently received a valuable gift from Abdul Maqsood Khoja, a Jeddah-based Saudi businessman, representing nine priceless manuscripts dating back to more than five centuries. They are precisely 511 years old. Prince Sultan has issued instructions that such ancient books and manuscripts should be displayed in a museum attached with the name of the donor of the objects in recognition of his/her role and efforts in the preservation of the national heritage.
