Alhamdulillah, as you all may know we have been sending copies of the Quran in Japanese language along with other books to the Japanese or friends of Japanese people all over the world who want to understand the message of Allah directly from the book He revealed to His Prophet Muhammad (saw). However, for the past several months, we had to stop this for the following reasons.
- We sincerely believe that it is quite difficult for a first time reader of the Quran to comprehend the meaning when he or she does not have any background knowledge of Islam. Some other Muslims who have a thourough understanding of the Japanese society and the culture gave similar comments.
- In the past, we used to get copies of the Quran in Japanese free of charge and use our own money to ship them along with other basic books about the oneness of Allah and other important topics of Islam to wherever we got request from. However, that source of free supply of the Quran is now dried up for their own reasons.
In the light of above,w we are still thinking on how best to spread the divine message of Islam to our Japanese brethren.
Please give us your feedback on this very important issue as we prepare for the next steps regarding this issue.
