Use of Bookmarks from Ancient and Islamic Perspectives:

Ancient Perspective:

Bookmarks, in various forms, have a rich history dating back to ancient civilizations. Here's a brief overview:

Ancient Egypt: One of the earliest known bookmarks dates back to ancient Egypt, around 1500 BCE. Egyptians used thin pieces of leather or papyrus to mark their scrolls. These early bookmarks often featured intricate designs and were sometimes made of precious materials like ivory or gold.

 Ancient Greece and Rome: In ancient Greece and Rome, bookmarks were made from a variety of materials, including leather, parchment, and ribbon. These bookmarks were used not only for marking places in scrolls but also for labeling and organizing important texts.

Medieval Europe: During the Middle Ages in Europe, bookmarks became more common as books and manuscripts became widely produced. These bookmarks were often religious in nature and included ribbons, tassels, or strings to mark pages.

Islamic Perspective:

In Islamic tradition, the use of bookmarks is rooted in a deep respect for written texts, particularly the Quran and other religious texts:

Quranic Bookmarks: Islamic culture places a strong emphasis on the Quran, the holy book of Islam. Bookmarks, often referred to as "ayah markers" or "Quran markers," are commonly used to keep track of where one left off when reading the Quran. These bookmarks are typically simple, functional, and designed to show respect for the sacred text.

Islamic Calligraphy: In Islamic art and culture, calligraphy plays a significant role. Bookmarks may feature beautiful Arabic calligraphy with Quranic verses or religious sayings, adding an element of artistic expression to their function.

Respect for Knowledge: In Islamic tradition, knowledge and education are highly valued. Using bookmarks is a way to handle books, including religious texts, with care and respect. It reflects the broader cultural and religious reverence for learning and scholarship.

In both ancient and Islamic perspectives, bookmarks have served not only as practical tools for marking pages but also as symbols of cultural, religious, and artistic significance. They continue to be valued for their role in preserving and enhancing the reading experience.
