Kulgam: A woman from south Kashmir’s Kulgam district has written Aayat-ul-Qursi (greatest verse of Quran according to hadith) by designing it on a hand-made shawl.

Shaheena Banoo (42) wife of Ghulam Rasool Lone, who is a resident of Hariwath Gopalpora Kulgam has worked for several days and nights to ready the shawl.

A white colour shawl about five feet white and three feet tall is embossed with the Quranic verses.

Talking to news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Shaheena said that she has been associated with handicrafts for the last two decades and has trained dozens of women in handicrafts so far who are now earning their livelihood well.

“I had taken a loan from the government some three years before and started a centre at home to train women folk and for the last three years, I have trained dozens of girls who are earning their livelihood themselves,” she said.

“It took me months together to prepare this shawl and money does not matter whatever it will fetch as it is holy Quran written on it,” she added
