If you have committed a crime & if you are asked by the court to recite the Muslim holy book Koran by heart or face six-months in jail, what shall be your reaction??? A similar sentence has been given by a Saudi court. Court has ordered a drug user to spend six months memorizing the Koran & if he fails to recite the Muslim holy book by heart, he faces a year in prison. Otherwise Saudi man from Jeddah was given a six-month jail term before giving this 'alternative sentence'.

Interestingly, that sentence will be doubled if his Koranic recitation classes fail to make him a 'hafez', someone who knows the Koran by heart. In the Koran , there are more than 77,000 words.
