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.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
