Hello My name is Amjad Ali from, Pakistan. I am from extreme north of Pakistan near the border of China named HUNZA VALLEY. I have an Antique Holly Quran which is almost 400 years old, hand written/manuscript in Arabic by my great grandfather when there was no Holly Quran in our area. At that time Islam was newly preached and converted from Buddhist. This Holy Quran is a symbolic identity for the people of that time which strength their faith toward Islam. At that time paper was not available in our area so paper use for Holy Quran was collected from Kashmir (india) which was almost 2000 Km away at that times route, travel for almost 2 months by horses and by foot and crossing rivers 55 time by swimming because of no bridges for communications and ink use is made by black mulberries and almond oil, coated Holy Quran by Yolk’s (Type of Bull) leather. I am facing some financial crisis that is why sell our family`s relic If anyone interested to buy send their e-mail on amjadali_hunzai@yahoo.com Serious buyers only no timewasters please… Note: I can transfer Snaps/pics of Antique Holly Quran on demand.
