Koran Cover


The Holy Koran is treated with the utmost respect. When it is placed on a table or flat surface, nothing at all is ever supposed to be placed on top of it because that is considered disrespectful. So quite often, I have seen the Koran in an upright position resting on its own stand. This photo shows a specially engraved metal cover for a Koran. Many Korans have beautiful exquisite covers.
