The Talismanic Shirt with Quranic verses was chosen by the English Wikipedia community as Picture Of The Day for 2nd May to celebrate Eid al-Fitr. On the front page for 24 hours, it was potentially seen by 5.1 million viewers. Thousands of extra viewers were attracted to the articles Talismanic shirt, Talisman, and Khalili Collection of Hajj and the Arts of Pilgrimage.
More than three hundred category tags have been added to the Khalili Collections images this month; the images are now visible in more than 1,000 categories. The number of "uncategorised" images went down from 237 to 179.
I uploaded two cropped versions of an existing image, one of which is now used to illustrate the Bilal ibn Ribah article. I have been adding images to other articles such as Fairuzabadi, Mary in Islam, and Persian Pottery.
A volunteer has been adding detail to Wikidata about an 11th-century Quran known as the Nurse's Quran. Along with the detail I have been adding, this allows us to create this Wikidata graph showing the four collections that have sections of this manuscript.
I began work on a new article on Islamic enamels, for which the Khalili Collections publications have much more information than presently exists on English Wikipedia.
