It is an Islamic Museum at Hoora, built to accommodate a valuable collection of Quran and rare manuscripts. This, being a unique concept in the Persian Gulf, it comprises a Mosque, Library, Museum, Auditorium, School and a Museum comprising ten exhibition halls.


The institution and its museum houses a good collection of historic Quranic manuscripts from various parts of the Islamic world, from China in the East to Spain in the West, all representing a progression of calligraphic traditions from first century of Islamic era to the present day.

Housing one of the world’s most treasured possessions, Beit Al Qurán is a religious site and tourist spot. All visitors are allowed to enter this building, which includes a library, a mosque, an auditorium, a school and a museum.  The Museum here has ten exhibition halls that offer a glimpse of rare books, manuscripts and other religious motifs. There are also manuscripts from non Islamic countries including China and Spain, apart from those of strict Islamic nations. Calligraphy, which forms a vital part of Islamic culture, is also represented here through works of master calligraphers.
