The most beautiful examples of arts such as calligraphy, illumination and miniature, which have an exceptional place in Islamic arts, can be seen in manuscripts and murakkas. The first examples of murakkas, which were previously prepared in the form of a book, appear at the end of the 15th century. Well-designed examples of these works, which developed further in the 16th century, can be found since the 18th century. Murakkas were written with the most beautiful calligraphy in every period, decorated, and preserved for many years without being worn out. Today, there are well-preserved murakkas in museums, libraries and private collections, rich in writing and ornamentation. One of the mentioned libraries is the Manisa Manuscript Library. The study deals with Murakka with Inventory Number 2815, which is preserved in the Manisa Manuscript Library. The work is "nesih müfredat meşkî", and consists of three leaves. There is no information about the history, calligrapher, bookbinder and illuminator of the work. The study aims at determining its place in the period examining it in terms of pattern, motif, colour, technique and style.
