An Indian expatriate in Qatar has reached halfway of his ambitious project of writing the Holy Quran in a unique way using expensive crystals and pure gold, first-of-its-kind effort in the world.
Muhammed Sultan Shaikh, a fashion designer-turned calligrapher of the Holy Quran, got offer from a reputed international fashion designing company in France when he became famous for designing 28 unique dresses reflecting face image of a most popular celebrities of Bollywood.
Shaikh later on decided to use his skill in designing beautiful frames containing verses of the Holy Quran. The calligrapher, a high school graduate, learnt Arabic language so he could write the Holy Quran properly.
“I began designing frames with verses of the Holy Quran in 2006 and made 46 beautiful large size frames in four years which were showcased at a shopping mall in Qatar for sale,” Shaikh told Qatari daily The Peninsula.
He said that the frames received overwhelming response from visitors which encouraged him to continue with his passion.
