Keywords:Manuscript, Mushaf , Handwritten Holy Quran , Hafiz Alpuri , Ancient versions of the Holy Quran
The Holy Quran is a central religious text of Islam. Muslims were engaged from an early period in the preservation of the Quran through memorization of it and handwritten materials as well. In its initial stage of existence there were no printing machines so people prepare their copies of the holy book in the form of hand-written form. Due to Muslim's deep attachment to the text of the holy book the tradition of hand-written Mushafs still exists in Muslim societies. In the history of the Sub-continent of Indo-Pak, we find many personalities who wrote or copied the holy Quran in their distinctive style, hafiz Alpuri is one of them. Hafiz Abdul Samad known as Hafiz Alpuri, is buried in the Alpuri village of Shangla district, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Hafiz Alpuri has left behind a diwan (Collection) of poetry and a handwritten copy of the Holy Quran. This Mushaf is kept by his descendants. Researchers and Quran lovers from all over Pakistan come to visit it. This research paper consists of an introduction of Hafiz Alpuri and an introductory and analytical review of his manuscripts. The paper, ink, writing style, symbols used in this unique manuscript, and the information contained in it, etc. have been discussed.
