The event was an opportunity to present the history of Moroccan Qurans, their aesthetic specificities and their artistic diversity, through their history dating back to the first centuries of history, from the time of the manuscript to the printing provided in Morocco by institutions such as the Awqaf Ministry and the Mohammed VI Foundation for the edition of the Holy Quran.

The Mohammed VI Foundation of African Ulema, according to its founders, is an Islamic religious institution seeking to prevent radicalization and fight sectarianism within Islam.

The foundation’s goal is to unite and coordinate the efforts of Muslim theologians from Morocco and other African countries to consolidate Islamic values of tolerance and critical exploration of religious texts.

It also aims to facilitate intellectual, scientific and cultural action by bringing together Muslim theologians from around the world to encourage the establishment of religious, scientific and cultural centers and working towards the revitalization of a common African, Islamic cultural heritage.
