 Beit Al Qur'an (Arabic: بيت القرآن‎, meaning: the House of Qur'an) is a multi-purpose complex dedicated to the Islamic arts and is located in Manama. It was the work and inspiration of Dr. Abdul Latif Jassim Kanoo, an engineer by profession and a former senior government officer and Shura Council member, whose personal collection of very rare and beautiful Quranic manuscripts was the basis for the museum's entire collection. Through his efforts, he was able to raise money from donations and together with the government's support, this idea came to life.

Opened to the public on March 12, 1990, the complex is most famous for its Islamic museum, which has been acknowledged as being one of the most renowned Islamic museums in the world.

Beit Al Qur'an is dedicated to the service of the Holy Qur'an and to the better and wider understanding of Islam as a religion and a civilization."

One version located at https://www.google.com/maps features the Arabic inscription below and the logo is not encircled but rather surrounded on the top and bottom by two semicircular lines, all in green. It is important to notice that both versions fly together, so they are closely related and may as well represent two different things (perhaps one is for the museum itself the one that does not feature the inscription, and the other is for the organization that runs it, namely "The Friends of Beit Al Qur'an Society").
