A translation of the Holy Quran in Asante Twi language was unveiled in Kumasi, southern Ghana, to help with a better understanding and appreciation of the Holy book for those who cannot read and write the Arabic language.
It took the Muslim cleric, Sheikh Harun Nkansah Agyekum, 40 years to translate the Quran from Arabic to Asante Twi.
Asante Twi, Ashanti, or Asante is spoken by over 2.8 million Ashanti people. Ashanti is one of three literary dialects of the Akan language of West Africa, and the prestige dialect of that language. It is spoken in and around Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
