The World Lengthiest HandWritten Quaran Calligraphy with 300 Meter long & 70 CM width, Prepared by Cartoonist Mr.Dileef, which was officially measured on 01st November 2019 in Sharjah – UAE. Awarded by His Excellency Rashid Al Leem.

The width of the canvas is the same as that of an A3 size paper. It took 10 hours of work daily for seven months for him to Complete 300 Meter of Canvas. He Hopes to Complete the Work in three Years. To achieve his dream, Dileef, who is a calligraphist as well, aims to write three-metres (three pages) every day from 10am to 10pm back home. The verses are written in the “Osmani” style. The paper is of “ivory” make, of 300gsm (grams per square metre) variety – 80gsm is standard for copy or printer paper. He uses a calligraphy pen and “Indian ink” to write the verses.

The project aims to project the artistic side of Quran and shares insight about the humane element of Quran which is often not expressed.

Dileef said his effort was also to promote calligraphy. “Calligraphy is an art form which was derived from Quran but is often considered as an underrated art form. Calligraphy arts do not have a market. Through this, I aim to highlight the beauty of calligraphy and at the same time share light on the humane aspects like science, arts, music to the public. There is a misunderstanding that Quran belongs to one community but if you go through Quran, you can understand that it actually tells us the importance of unity between humans,” said Dileef.
