The demand for the copies of the Holy Quran, which was designed and printed at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine - represented by the Center of Quran Sciences, Interpretation and Printing of the Institute of the Holy Quran -, has increased, especially before the advent of the holy month of Ramadhan, thanks to the fact that it is the first copy of the Holy Quran that is designed by the servants of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), and printed in an Iraqi printing house, namely the AlKafeel Printing House of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine with high-quality and efficiency printing specifications. All of these motives made that that all its printed copies are sold out.
Director of the Center for Quran Sciences, Interpretation and Printing, which supervises this project, Sheikh Dea al-Din al-Zubaidi spoke about this subject, saying: "The copy of the Holy Quran of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine has many advantages, which led people to buy it from the permanent book exhibitions of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, which urged us to continue the project and printing our copy of the Holy Quran in higher number, as since e issued these copies, the demand for them is increasing and continuous from visitors to the holy shrines of Karbala from inside and outside Iraq, especially on the Fridays' eve and before the holy month of Ramadhan, where the demand has increased significantly. "
He explained: "We are now in the production of the fifth edition of the Holy Quran, which was preceded by the output of four editions of different sizes and measurements, by 25 thousand copies."
It is worth mentioning that this copy of the Holy Quran has many specifications, in addition to the fact that the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine is the first institution in Iraq to bring together the line and the printing of the holy Quran, its most important features are:
1- This copy of the Holy Quran is characterized by the written line of the known Iraqi calligrapher Hamid Al-Saadi, the artistic touches of the employees of the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine and being printed at an Iraqi Printing house, which makes it a copy of Quran 100 % made by Iraqis.
2- The centre tried as much as possible to put the interconnected words in one line, for its aesthetic beauty.
3- The number of pages of this copy of the Holy Quran is matching all other printed copies.
4- We formed the Surat of "Al-Fatiha" in a correlated way, each line showing specific meaning especially the last verse.
5- It was taken into account the aesthetic design of the outer cover of the Holy Quran, developing a decoration similar to that of the grid of the holy shrine of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) in addition to the logo of the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine.
6- Calligraphy line used in this copy of the Holy Quran is "Al-Naskh", characterized by being clear and easy to read.
7- This copy of the Holy Quran is perfectly matching the other copies used in our country and in the neighbouring countries, in terms of reading rules.
