Visiting the Selangor Islamic Art Garden (Kompleks Taman Seni Islam Selangor) in Shah Alam was definitely an eye-opener. As a Taoist/Buddhist, the Al Qur’an had always been “just” a Holy book to me. However, seeing first-hand how it is preserved, copied and produced, I have a higher level of respect for it.

At the Selangor Islamic Art Garden, our tour included learning about the various calligraphic scripts used in the Al Qur’an, the brushes, colours, motifs, and the technique adopted in preparing the manuscript. I would say it is meticulous and tedious but has to be done as the Qur’an has to be perfect.

I have no idea what these mean or what they are for

In this post, I have plenty of photos to share with you. Do note that normally, photography and videography are not allowed at Selangor Islamic Art Garden because the heat and light from the camera may affect the manuscripts. In fact, the management doesn’t allow large groups of visitors too, for the same reason.

do not touch

Check out what I have for you, even though it is not the same as going there personally. Also, lots of people come here to purchase gifts with Islamic elements or the Qur’an in English. One of the more popular souvenirs would be having one’s name written in Arabic, for a token fee of only RM1.
