Arabic Books

Postby Betamaxx » 2016-09-18, 13:00

Dear all,

My late grandfather spoke at least 6 languages including German, English, Swahili, Aramaic, Italian and, importantly Arabic. He has recently passed and I have a number of Arabic books which I know nothing about. Would anyone be kind enough to see the below links and let me know what they mean? I understand that Arabic is read right to left and have therefore assumed that this is the front.

Many thanks in advance.

It looks like a copy of the Qur'an, probably printed in Ottoman Egypt. I take it the second image is the cover: it says Mushaf-i Sharif "the Noble Qur'an". The first image has two verses from the Qur'an at the top (56:79-80) followed by what looks like printing information(?) in Ottoman Turkish.
Please correct my mistakes in any language.
