CAIRO (Reuters) - 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 meters long.Saad Mohammed writes as he sits on the floor of his studio in the town of Belqina, north of Cairo, Egypt, April 26, 2017. REUTERS/Mohamed Abd El GhanyHe displays the intricately decorated manuscript in a large wooden box with rollers at each end.This Koran is 700 meters long, and of course that’s a large amount of paper, he told Reuters Television. I self-funded this project for the past three years - and I’m an average person. I don’t have assets or anything.Saad Mohammed turns the page of a book he’s handwritten at his studio in the town of Belqina, north of Cairo, Egypt April 26, 2017. REUTERS/Mohamed Abd El GhanyMohammed wants to submit his Quran for inclusion in Guinness World Records.
