TEHRAN (IQNA) – An official with Iran’s State Welfare Organization said the organization’s printing house plans to publish 3,000 braille copies of the Quran this year.


Speaking to IQNA, Mohammad Nafariyeh said the copies will be given out to the visually-impaired for free.

He added that the organization has also signed an agreement with seminary schools to publish religious books for the hearing-impaired.

Braille is a writing system which enables the blind and partially-sighted people to read and write through touch.

It was invented by Louis Braille (1809-1852), who was blind and became a teacher of the blind.

In recent years, the Holy Quran and religious books have been printed in Braille to help the visually-impaired Muslims read the texts with ease.
