Copies of the Holy Quran printed in Madinah do not have any errors as some some social media websites have claimed, according to Muhammad Al-Oufi, secretary-general of King Fahd Glorious Quran Printing Complex.

Sheikh Ishaq Al-Huwaini, a renowned Egyptian scholar, appeared on a YouTube video last week saying there were some errors in the copies.

In a statement, Al-Oufi said the copy of the Quran Sheikh Al-Huwaini was holding had 20 lines in the page while all copies printed at the complex have 15 lines.

The statement reiterated that all copies produced at the complex are accurate and are checked by over 300 experts.
