Egyptian school drop-out spends 3 years to create 700-metre ‘World’s Biggest Quran’ (PHOTOS)

An Egyptian artist who educated himself after dropping out of school has spent three years creating what he hopes is the world’s biggest Quran.

Saad Mohammed, who has hand-painted Islamic motifs on the walls and ceilings of his home in the town of Belqina, north of Cairo, has reproduced the Muslim holy book on a paper scroll 700 metres (2,300 feet) long.

He displays the intricately decorated manuscript in a large wooden box with rollers at each end.
