The world’s first handcrafted herbal Holy Koran, made from about 200 medicinal plants, has been unveiled here.

The Koran has been made by the Islamic arts and calligraphy company, Heddem Arts and has been crafted over 23 years from 1957 to 1979 by Turkish Unani Doctor Hamdi Taher.

The Koran is made of high potency herbal mixtures prepared as per Unani medical system.

“Herbal sheets of the Holy Koran have many therapeutic properties when the reader moves his fingers on the letters or in and around the pages, the herbal mixture seeps through the pores in the fingers, providing health benefits,” Heddem Arts said in a statement.

The herbal-cream-written Koran includes 606 pages and weighs about 7.5 kg.

“Patiently handcrafted over the years, every word and design in the Holy Koran is made without using any printing technology, tools or machinery because of which it is truly one of a kind,” Abdul Azeaz Bin Hassan, Islamic religious adviser at Heddem Arts, said.
