The world’s largest version of Quran, created by Pakistani artist Shahid Rasam, will be unveiled at Dubai Expo 2020 next month.
According to the Khaleej Times, the Holy Qur’an, produced by Shahid Rassam, is the first of its kind in 1400 years of Islamic history to be made of gold words on an aluminum canvas.
Traditionally, the Qur’an has been made on paper, cloth and leather.
However, the Pakistani artist and former resident of the United Arab Emirates is going to make a new history by writing the verses of the Holy Quran in aluminum and gold.
Shahid Rasam, who has already won several international awards, started preparing the Holy Quran five years ago and wants to present it at the Dubai Expo.
He said that this Holy Quran has been prepared in Karachi and except the size of the frame, the Holy Quran is 8.5 feet long and 6.5 feet wide.
The Qur’an has 150 words on one page while the total number of pages is 550.
He said that Irfan Osama, an overseas Pakistani businessman based in Dubai, was helping him to present the Holy Quran at the Dubai Expo.
Shahid Rassam won the Artist of the Year award in 2000 from Al Ain University in the UAE.
He has previously written 99 names of Allah using aluminum and gold.
According to Guinness World Records, the largest Quran so far is 6.74 feet long and 4.11 feet wide, containing 632 pages and weighing 552.74 kg.
