The striking black-ground borders of the opening illumination suggest it was produced in 16th century Herat or Bukhara.
A Qur'an with closely related illumination in the khalili collection is dated 1537-38 and attributed to bukhara or herat ( David James, after Timur , Qur'ans of the 15th and 16th crnturies, London 1992, no.33, p.125). The body of our Qur'an is however later and North India, probably dating to the late 17th or early 18th century.
The Mughal court was strongly attached to thier central origins and often collected manuscript from there.
