Hyderabad, May 18 (ANI): Tejasri, a 15-year-old Hindu girl from Hyderabad, is on her way to create a world record by penning down a 9999-ft long Quran in Arabic.
Tejasri began writing the text on April 23 and is about to finish the last six chapters in 20 days time eyeing a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Moulana Abdul Kadir Razvi who is helping her believes that he is fortunate to see a Hindu girl replicate the holy book with so much dedication.
"It's not even a month that this girl has started writing Quran. Everyday she writes for 10 hours. This is an achievement. This is a great blessing from Allah to this girl." said Moulana Abdul Kadir Razvi, a Muslim priest.
Tejasri who just gave her 10th class exams is now earning appreciations from all around.
"I started from April 23, I will complete the book in another 20 days I have already completed 24 chapters. I write for almost 10-12 hoursveryday," said Tejasri
The Quran consists of 114 'suras' (chapters) with the total of 6236 ayat (verses).
The very word Quran is usually translated as "recital" indicating that it cannot exist as a mere text. It has always been transmitted orally as well as textually.
A person whose recital repertoire encompasses the whole Quran is called a Qari or hafiz or reciter. By Narendra (ANI)
