Al-Azhar Imam introduced to world's oldest Quran manuscript in London
Al-Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el Tayyeb was introduced on Wednesday to the most ancient manuscript of the Holy Quran at his residence in Lambeth Palace, London.

Hawzah News Agency (London, UK) - The manuscript, which is kept at the University of Birmingham, was moved to Lambeth Palace in a nice gesture to help Tayyeb see it, Al-Azhar said in a statement Wednesday.

A researcher at the UK university disclosed that the manuscript dates back to the first half of the 1st century AH (7th century AD), noting that it is the world’s most ancient manuscript of its kind.

The manuscript was found about 70 years ago.

 

End.
