The first handmade herbal Holy Qur’an in the world has been unveiled in Dubai by the Islamic arts and calligraphy company, Heddem Arts. The holy book is reportedly made of approximately 200 herbs and has been crafted by Turkish Unani Doctor Hamdi Taher (1897-2003) over a period of 22 years (1957-1979). While the masterpiece is entirely made from medicinal herbal extracts from start to finish, herbal cream has been used to engrave the letters, chapter names, chapter headings on the top and sides of the pages, border designs and page numbers. The herbal-cream-written Qur’an includes 606 pages and weighs about 7.5 kilograms. The book’s medicinal herbal mixture was extracted from seeds, fruits, leaves, stems, barks and roots used in Unani medicine, Heddem Arts explained. Based on traditional Greek medicine concepts, Unani System of medicine is one of the oldest forms of alternative, traditional and complementary medicine. It incorporates sources from the plants, animals and natural minerals in its raw form.
