Sistani explains the legitimacy of touching the paper a thousand dinars without light
The supreme religious authority, Ali al-Sistani said that it is not permissible to touch the current Iraqi currency of the category of one thousand dinars and the previous one dinar category, without light, because it contains surah al-Ikhlas.
This came in response to a number of questions addressed to him by his followers on his own site.
In a question about touching the Iraqi currency, the religious authority said: "In the middle of the current Iraqi currency, the denomination of (1000) dinars and the category (1) dinars previously surah al-Ikhlas and Kufic, what is the rule of touching them without light ?, the answer was" Thousand dinars without light ".

MilitiaMan: With out light is without three zeros.. imo
Sistani is imo telling the citizens he approves of the new currency.. Coins even.. imo
Sound about right, WS? ~ MM
"Kūfic script, in calligraphy, earliest extant Islamic style of handwritten alphabet that was used by early Muslims to record the Qurʾān.
This angular, slow-moving, dignified script was also used on tombstones and coins as well as for inscriptions on buildings. Some experts distinguish Kūfi proper from Meccan and Medinese scripts, which were also used to copy the Qurʾān.
Don961: the term "surah al-Ikhlas" refers to a recitation that is considered 1/3 of the Qur'an by followers :
"Say! He is God, the One!
"The Eternally Besought of all!
"He does not beget, nor is He begotten.
"And there is nothing comparable to Him."
So perhaps this may have something to what Mr. Sistani is saying .. both currency notes contain this writing on them .. but the 1000 note is without light because of the 3 zeroes ...it is not 1 link
Iggy: for now we use the 1000, we can't touch the 1 until it is brought to light (brought to the public) ...possibility IMO
Frank26: YES !!! !!! !!!
