A wooden book rest (Rehal)

Rehal (Arabic: رِحال) is an X-shaped foldable book rest used for placing holy books during recitation. This book rest, which is usually made of wood, is common in Islam.

The book rest, often called "Quran stand" by Muslims, is also spelled as Rihal.[1]

Used historically for many generations in South Asian and Arab countries, it is used for placing the holy Quran while reciting it.[2]
