Another visitor from Baghdad, Mr. Zuhair Abd Al-Kadhem added: "There are many copies of Quran in Iraq issued by multiple institutions, but what encouraged me to acquire this copy is the clarity of its non-overlapped line and its fine decorations, which does not distract the reader from the hear of the Quranic verses."
Another visitor, teacher of Arabic language, Mr. Abd Al-Muhsin Muzher stated: "It is a source of pride that the holy shrine print this copy of the Holy Quran, which is a contentment factor as it is a better copy than the rest of copies currently in circulation in terms of drawing the line, harakat and other details that help in the correct lecture, and what encourages us in buying this copy is its line made by an Iraqi calligrapher, showing the importance and the ability of the Iraqi calligraphers in this field and to not let it be limited to certain parties."
As for the visitor, Haj, Mohamed Abd Al-Abbas he said: "the line method and type of the holy Quran is "Khat An-Naskh" encouraged us to buy this copy, which is characterized by being clear and easy to read, as well as being compatible with the known and traded copies of Quran in the country and in the neighboring countries, whether in the recitation rules' signs or terms, in addition to the adoption of a beautiful artistic way in organizing and arranging the chapters and verses, and in the design and output of the pages, as well as the decoration in putting the codes and signs."
