A stunning large sheet includes the entire text of the Quran.
The text was written by professor Mohammad Ibrahim, the founder and director of the school for improvement of writing in Alexandria in 1949 and was confirmed as correct two years later by Sheikh al-Muqri al-Misriyya (شيخ المقارئ المصرية).
The history of the printed Qur’an goes back to the 16th century, when the text was published for the first time in 1537/1538 in Venice. The printed text was full of errors. In the next centuries, when the Qur’an was printed in parts or with commentaries in the West, the Islamic world opposed of printing of religious texts. In the East, in Russia, Catherine the Great allowed printing of the Qur’an in 1787 (followed by 1790 and 1793) by the Tatar and Turkic press in Saint-Petersburg. The Gymnasium Press in Kazan published the Qur’an in 1803. Until the al-Azhar Qur’an from 1924, which became the basics for the later editions, the most influential printed edition of the Qur’an was the one published in Leipzig in 1834.
