Baku:
Tunzale Memmedzade, an artist based in Azerbaijan, spent three years painstakingly transcribing the Holy Quran on sheets of transparent black silk creating a beautifully crafted religious text that demonstrates both devotion and patience.

"Memmedzade embarked on the project after learning that the Quran had never previously been transcribed on silk. She set to work on 11.4" x 13" sheets of delicate silk, using a total of 164 feet for the finished Quran", according to MyModernMet.com.

"A little more than three pints of silver and gold ink flow across the pages, with the text based on the version released from the Diyanet, the Turkish Presidency of Religious Affairs", the portal said in a report.

Calligraphy, an art that has always been a part of Islamic culture, seems to take on a surreal form in the hands of Memmedzade. It would be difficult to find any Islamic structure without any form of calligraphy on it. Intricate artwork and transcription go hand in hand with Islamic architecture - something the world is definitely grateful for.

"The lavish calligraphy reminds us of the incredible tradition of Islamic art, something which is also being celebrated at the Smithsonian Museum's Sackler Gallery", the report added.

The Quran - the Holy book of Muslims is considered sacred. It is beleived that the Holy Book is the word of the Alimighty Allah. Reciting, memorising and writing the Holy book are considered as most rewarding tasks by Muslims.
