Three copies of the world’s tiniest printed Qur’an were donated to the central library of Astan Quds Razavi, which maintains the Imam Reza (AS) shrine in Mashhad.

“The copies, printed in Egypt, are legible without the aid of magnification,” Muhammad-Reza Fazel-Hashemi head of the manuscripts office at the Organization of Libraries, Museums, and the Documentation Center of Astan Quds Razavi, announced on Saturday.

“Throughout history, precious and unique Qur’an copies have been written by noted artists and calligraphers who are, nowadays, the flagships of the world’s museums and libraries,” IRNA quoted him as saying.

Astan Quds Razavi is a matchless center of divine books in the Islamic world. The library accommodates some 95,000 Qur’an copies and manuscripts and is considered by many codicologists and researchers as one of the greatest scientific hubs in the Islamic world.
