The Qur'an Complex

Today the students were invited to an exclusive visit of the King Fahd Complex for the Printing of the Holy Qur’an, the central hub for the printing, translation, and distribution of the last revelation to humankind.

This massive complex uses state-of-the-art technology to produce millions of copies of the Qur’an every year which are distributed all over the world. The complex also oversees the translation of the Holy Qur’an in other languages, of which so far 35 translations have been made.

We were all immensely impressed by the great care and professionalism the complex and its staff take in preserving the honor of Allah’s Holy book.

At the end of the trip the staff at the complex gave each and every student a copy of the Holy Qur’an, as well as a complete set of the recitation of the Qur’an on audio cassette. Some students even got copies that were translated into languages other than English, such as Persian, Urdu, and Turkish.
