Inscribed by Mohsen Khanjari Anbouhi, the handwritten copy is the world’s first invisible Qur’an, which has been displayed in the Written Works Section of the exhibition.
Khanjari’s masterpiece has been written in Naskh calligraphy by using nanotechnology and invisible real gold ink that can only be seen under a special light.
The copy is in Uthman Taha style and each page measures 29 by 20 centimeters.
“The ink used in writing the copy only becomes visible when infrared light is shed on it,” Khanjari said.
He plans to donate the copy to Astan-e Quds Razavi after the conclusion of the Qur’an exhibit.
