The Largest Al Quran In The World

The Qolşärif Mosque (Kul-Sharif Mosque) located in Kazan Kremlin, was reputed to be, at the time of its construction, the largest mosque in Russia, and in Europe outside of Istanbul. Now they exhibit the largest Quran in the world there. 

The Quran al-Karim is largest Quran in the world made in Italy by the company ‘Reverra Ltd’ (2011). The weight of 800 kg, measurements 2 m x 1.5 m x 25 cm. It consists of 632 pages which have a weight of 250 g per page.

The cover is in-crusted with gold leaf, silver, malachite, jasper, turquoise, topaz, gold stone, etc. In May, they plan to transfer the Quran to the ancient city of Bolgar, Tatarstan, the place where Volga Bulgaria officially accepted Islam as a state religion 922.

I not really understand the need to create the largest Al Quran. What Muslim around the world need is to understand the meaning inside the Quran and practice it. Built the biggest Quran for just displaying purpose is not correct in my perspective.

Take a look!
