Qur'an Bag

This bag was used for the protection of the holy book – the Qur’an. Square in shape, the bag’s central diamond pattern is surrounded by borders with horizontal stripes above. The design is the same on both sides. A plaited tape can be inserted into the two vertical slits in the upper stripes to close the bag. When kept in the tent, the bag is hung so it faces Mecca – the holy city of faithful Muslims.
