He said, the completion of the world’s largest Holy Quran calligraphy is a major achievement for the Afghan nation and conveyed his congratulations remarks for His Excellency Syed Mansoor Naderi.

Also, Afghan Senate House speaker Fazal Hadi Muslimyar handed over Appreciation Letters to His Excellency Alhaj Syed Mansoor Naderi, Mr. Sabir Yaqoot Hussaini Khedri and his 9 students who were involved in the calligraphy of the world’s largest Holy Quran calligraphy.

The completion of the calligraphy work of the world’s largest Holy Quran was also praised by Hujat ul Islam Waez Zada Besudi and described the initiative as a vital and major service for the history and culture of Afghanistan.

    Secondly,I thank also from our Government that it appreciated the creation,but it should pave the
    situation more for those who are interested to show Islamic values for the world..


    The initiative is excellent! An Islamic competition for the BEST QURAN in both calligraphy, material, page design and cover design is very positive. As large as possible, a magnification contest is not the best direction for The Holy QURAN! -A book, even The Work of God ALLAH Himself, must remain a book: the size must be for holding it in our hands for studying it!
