According to alyaum.com website, Akhtar, who lives in a small town in Gujrat, in Pakistan’s Punjab province, spent 32 years to make the hand embroidered copy of the Holy Book.
Abdul Rahman Bana, the museum’s public relations office, said the 62-year-old housewife started embroidering verses of the Quran back in 1987 and completed it in January this year.
He said she recently visited Medina and handed the copy over to the museum.
According to Bana, the copy has been designed in ten volumes, each containing three Juzes (sections) of the Quran.
He said each Juz has 27 pages and each page contains 15 lines.
Each volume, he added, measures 56 by 38 centimeters and the ten volumes weigh about 55 kilograms in total.
