Hadri used an ordinary sewing machine, silk yarn, velvet sheets and his skilful hands to create Arabic words, verses from the Quran and calligraphic designs, without the aid of technology or any margins and lines.

The artwork is being currently exhibited at the Dubai Chamber of Commerce, as part of the Dubai International Holy Quran Awards (DIHQA) exhibition.

Hadri, whose work has attracted a lot of attention and acclaim, told the publication that this is the first time he is exhibiting the entire Quran.

The embroidered Quran contains 426 pages, weighs 200 kilogrammes and is worth 5 million euros.
