To read the tiny letters you need an electron microscope that magnifies at least 3,000 times. The chip will contain the smallest nano version of the Quran– which is the holy book for the members of the Muslim religion and contains 114 surahs – will be presented displayed inside a fancy glass box,.
Ohana said that " I had the privilege of being a minister in the government that signed the peace agreements and now – a significant breakthrough at the parliamentary level. On this occasion, I will give my Moroccan counterpart the smallest Quran in the world with nanotechnology, something that expresses the connection between the old and the new, between history and progress, while respecting tradition and the past."
In the Quran chip, which was produced by the Israeli jewelry company Tanaor for the first time, over 320,000 letters are engraved. The comparison between a nano unit and a meter is like comparing the size of an olive to the size of the earth. At the end of the process, a plate made of silicone material containing thousands of units of the minimized text was obtained, and these are separated into individual chips using a diamond-cutting saw.

At the end of the festive ceremony, the speaker of the Knesset and his host are expected to sign an official memorandum of understanding whose purpose is to develop inter-parliamentary cooperation in order to strengthen relations between the State of Israel and the Kingdom of Morocco. In addition, during his visit, Ohana is expected to meet with senior officials in the Moroccan government, as well as with the heads of the Jewish community in the kingdom.
"I am hopeful that the strengthening of relations between the Kingdom of Morocco and the State of Israel will open new horizons for the kingdom, that thanks to the courage of the Queen, King Mohammed VI, will see a good and progressive future for her children," said Ohana.
