Turkey sends 2,000 Qurans to Samoa

Turkey has sent 2,000 Qurans to Samoa, Turkey's Hurriyet Daily News reported on Monday.

Turkey’s Religious Affairs Directorate (Diyanet) translated the Qurans into Samoan and shipped them to the Pacific island, which has a population of 193,200, including 130 Muslims.

Samoa Muslims Union Representative Mohommad Irfan Ahmed asked the Diyanet to help the Turkish organisation provide Samoa with the Muslim holy book at the First Summit of the Religious Leaders of the Asia-Pacific Countries in October 2015.

The initiative was undertaken by Turkey’s General Directorate of Religious Publications and the General Directorate of Foreign Affairs.

The Department of Publications in Foreign Languages and Dialects printed 2,000 medium and small-sized Qurans at the end of 2016, which were then shipped to Samoa.​
