Qur’an in Igbo Language Set for Launch in Abuja

By Alabidun Shuaib Abdulrahaman

 

The holy Qur’an will be released in Igbo on Friday by a group of Muslims from the nation’s South East.

During a courtesy call to the Daily Trust headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday, representatives of the group operating under the auspices of the Igbo Muslims Da’wah Group headed by Mal. Muhammed Muritala Chukwuemeka disclosed this.

Mal. Chukwuemeka stated during the visit that he and his group have chosen to convey Allah’s message to his Igbo brothers through the translated Qur’an.

The Imo State native, Mal. Chukwuemeka described Islam as a religion of peace that forbids the killing of one’s fellow human beings.

He admitted that it took him five productive years to finish the translation.

However, the Imo-born preacher urged well-meaning Nigerians to attend the launching, which will take place at the Ansar-ud-deen mosque in Maitama, Abuja, immediately after Juma’at prayer.

In order to convey Allah’s message of peace to Igbos in the South East and other regions of Nigeria, he further urged well-intentioned Nigerians to sponsor the mass production of the sacred text.

“It took me not less than five year before completing the translation. We are calling on well-to-do Nigerians to assist in mass production of the holy book. Presently, we have printed 500 copies and 100 copies have already been sent to the South East,” he said.
