Is there an ancient Chinese translation of the Quran? I figure that since Islam has been in China for over a thousand years, there should be some ancient Chinese translations.

One should seek serenity to cultivate the body, thriftiness to cultivate the morals. If you are not simple and frugal, your ambition will not sparkle. If you are not calm and cool, you will not reach far. - Zhugeliang

I thought there were no translations of the Quran in any language? Don't Muslims believe the Quran was the word of God revealed in Arabic and should not be translated?

There are numerous translations but none are actually considered as canonical for the purpose of serious religious instructions.

A convert is required to learn it in Arabic, and hence take up Arabic if the convert does not already know it.

Greetings,

I was looking for a copy of the Quran in chinese on the net and came across this topic. link below is a good chinese translation of the Quran.

http://hk.geocities....hk/c_quran.html

As a convert i don't speak the Arabic language nor do i understad it. It's just a misconception on people's part to assume that one has to learn the arabic language in order to understand the Quran.On the contrary Quran's main message is of universality and brotherhood; beyond all man made borders and definitions of race.And if one pays attention to the total muslim population in the world only 10% are Arabic speakers.so one is totally independent in understaning the message in what ever language one feels comfortable with.

with regards.

Muslims do not seem to be doing much to dispel such a "misconception", nor have they done so in the past.

Yes, you do have to pray in Arabic.

All converts would definitely know the first chapter, Surat Al'Fatiha, the Opening.

You can make requests in other languages though in your prayer. But the recitation part of the prayer would be in Arabic.

I saw at least a part of the Quran in Chinese on ancient wood and/or stone tablets in Xian Muslims traded on the Jade-Silk Road. The great Mosque where the tablets are located dates from 742 AD in the Tang Dynasty.

There are also scrolls of paper copies of the Quran from the Ming and Qing Dynasties

I have only seen a Chinese modern Koran version. I'm not even sure if there was any ancient translation of the Koran.
