.: Waqf project :.

Crossing restrictions.

Brother Ikhwan Ng has recently embarked on a waqf project involving Chinese translations of the holy Qur'an. Being a convert to Islam with a Chinese background himself, he is fully aware of the need to read religious texts in a language one is proficient and comfortable with. This view is equally shared among other converts he has came to know through his blog - Another Chinese Muallaf

As of now, said texts are not readily available in Malaysia. Therefore, Ikhwan has taken the initiative to import these translations from China. Through this project, you may waqf a particular translation to gift a Chinese literate individual access to the holy Qur'an. You may also request or buy a waqf copy for yourself or your Chinese literate family or friends.

Version A

  • RM100
  • A4 size
  • Qur'an text and Chinese translations
  • Translated by Wang Zin Zai
  • Detailed footnotes and written in layman terms

Version B
  • RM70
  • A5 size
  • Qur'an text and Chinese translations
  • Translated by Ma Jian
  • Standard translation used in China

Version C
  • RM30
  • Pocket size
  • Chinese translations
  • Translated by Ma Jian
  • Standard translation used in China

Orders and inquiries can be made via whassap to +6012 397 9998 or All orders will be sent via Poslaju and take approximately 2 weeks to be delivered from China.

For information about this project in Bahasa Malaysia, kindly visit Ikhwan's blogpost.

This project is highlighted for others to get acquainted with the Qur'an. Wouldn't it be epic if there could be similar projects for other religious texts as well?

Assalamu Alaikum sis! Ramadan kareem.

Masha'Allah, what a good initiative! While reading this post, my mind is racing, quickly running an inventory of all the Chinese friends I know who might be interested. Well, they aren't many but I'll definitely let them know about this.
