Surat 1 (right) and 2 (left): The first two chapters of the Qur'an.  Fatiha (The Opening) on the right is likened to David's 23rs Psalm, and is recited many times in each of the 5 daily Muslim prayers. Baqara (The Cow) on the left is actually the longest chapter and so only a couple of verses are shown here. (Western books open left to right / Arabic from right to left.) From site for which the only information provided is that this is a "Big Quran." (Audrey Shabbas)
