    “This calligraphic fragment includes verses 13–18 of the 81st chapter of the Qurʼan entitled Al-Takwir (The folding up). The text continues with verses 18–21 on the fragment's verso. This surah (chapter) provides a series of graphic images of the Day of Judgment, when the world shatters and souls are weighed in the balance: “And when the Garden is brought near, / Then each soul will know what it has done.” (81:13–14). The style of the script is close to the Kufi D.I. category of the ninth century. Executed in six lines, the text is written in black ink, outlined with gold cloud bands, and provided with a multicolored frame. There are no diacritical marks, but vocalization is indicated by red dots. The verse marker on the last line of the recto consists of a gold rosette with the term khamsah (five) inscribed in its center. In the lower right corner, a hole has eaten through a letter”—library of congress.
