Surau Batang Kapeh Collection

The collection is written on European paper which ages approximately ranged from the early 1800s to the end 1800s. Their condition is now pretty much critical and endangers: some are now seriously broken down, the writings are washed out and pages are ripped apart and rotten. The contents are mostly about Islamic texts: Qur'an, tauhid (unity of Allah), fiqh (Islamic rules), tasawuf or tarekat (Sufism or the path of Islamic mysticism), and Arabic grammar.
