Although the non-Arab Muslims constitute 80% of the overall number of Muslims worldwide, the process of translating the Arabic Islamic content to non-Arabs still not satisfactory until now.

Proceeding from bearing the trust of interpreting the message alongside with conveying it, this pioneering initiative is launched to introduce the Arabic Islamic literature in various branches of Islamic knowledge to non-Arabs.

This introduction is made through translation to major world languages according to planned stages and clear objectives by a group of elite specialists in Islamic Translation. Noor Alyaqeen Institution sought through this initiative to create a state of epistemological flexibility between Islamic sciences and major Imams from one side and non-Arab Muslims from the other side. We ask Allah that this initiative will be a building block that fills one of the essential chasms of the Islamic nation; the deep gap between its foundational Arabic heritage and its non-Arab individuals.
