SHAFAQNA – Iranian artist and calligrapher Seyed Ali Asghar Mousavian donated a rare copy of the Quran that he has calligraphed to the Astan (custodianship) of Hazrat Abbas (AS) holy shrine in Karbala, Iraq.
According to al-Kafeel website, he said a special natural ink has been used for writing the Quran copy, which weighs 3 kilograms.
Mousavian added that he spent ten hours a day for two years to complete the artwork.
Earlier this year, on the occasion of Imam Ali (AS) birthday, the Iranian artist donated another Quran copy written in gold to the Astan of Imam Ali (AS) in Najaf.
It is now on display at the museum of the Astan.
