First Mandinka Translation of Qur`an

Post by Mohamed on Sat Apr 12, 2008 9:06 pm

CAIRO — In an effort to promote Islam among millions of Mandinka-speaking people around the world, a Gambian Muslim imam is translating the Noble Qur`an into the West African language.

"I want to make sure people have the correct information about the Qur`an and Islam, so they don't get it from the TV screen," Momodou Ceesay told the Sun-Sentinel newspaper on Saturday, April 12.

Ceesay, who studied Arabic and Islamic studies at the Cairo-based Al-Azhar University, the highest seat of learning in the Muslim world, spent six months translating the Noble Book into Mandinka.


"Every honest Jew who knows the history of his people cannot but feel a deep sense
of gratitude to Islam, which has protected the Jews for fifty generations ... "
(Uri Avnery, a Jewish Journalist)
