First Nigerian Man to Translate Quran into Igbo Language

Daily Trust

A group of Muslim natives from the south-east region of Nigeria will release the Holy Qur'an translated to Igbo language on Friday, that is, 1st of July, 2022. Representatives for the group led by Mal. Muhammad Muritala Chukwuemeka revealed this during a meeting with Daily Trust in Abuja earlier this week.


Sheikh Murtala has been named as the first Nigeria Man to translate the Quran into Igbo language.


He said the team’s mission is to spread Allah’s message to his Igbo brothers through the translated Quran. Chukwuemeka, a native of Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State, revealed that it took him five good years to complete the translation.


The cleric urged Nigerians to attend the launching which will take place immediately after Friday prayer at Ansar-ud-deen mosque, Maitama in the Federal Capital Territory.


“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.


Sheikh Murtala Chukwuemeka was a  pastor before he converted to Islam in 1989. He has converted over 300 people through his preachings.
