This is a bi-lingual blog, English and Filipino (English or transliterated English terms are inserted whenever needed).
As the URL name “quranfilipino” suggests, this blog is focused in the Filipino translation of the Qur’an, with an specially-tailored transliteration for the Filipino reverts. [Translation here means the simplest and closest “interpretation of the meaning” as there is no exact translation of the holy book into any other language.]
Being a revert Muslimah myself, I understand the plight faced by many who embraced this wonderful beautiful religion. With Allah’s inspiration, I came out with the idea of introducing an online “Qur’an Filipino Translation/Transliteration Project” as my way of D’awah to promote free access to Islam in Filipino. My vision is to reach out the Filipinos locally and globally.
I ask Allah ﷻ for His help and guidance and beg for His forgiveness for all the mistakes I may possibly do. Ya Allah, please bestow on me all the positive attitudes (motivation, dedication, commitment, consistency, patience… ) in going through until the very end; the knowledge and wisdom to arrive at the best acceptable viewpoint; the courage to face negativity from the creation; and the health and wealth in body and soul to be able to move on.
I dedicate this humble effort to all the men and women, my KABABAYAN who heard about ISLAM… discerned the Truth… submitted… obeyed… and they became Muslims.
اللَّهُمَ حَبَّبْ إِلَيْنَا الْإِيمَانَ وَزَيِّنْهُ فِي قُلُوبِنَا، وَكَرِّهْ إِلَيْنَا الْكُفْرَ وَالْفُسُوقَ وَالْعِصْيَانَ، وَاجْعَلْنَا مِنَ الرَّاشِدِينَ
“O Allah make our faith beloved to us and beautify it in our hearts and make hateful to us disbelief, wickedness and disobedience. And make us of the rightly-guided.”
Our Creator deserves to be known and mankind has the right to know. No rights reserved for the sake of Allah Almighty, and for this, I always remember a scholar in comparative religion who motivated me to discover the beauty of Islam, the late Ahmed Deedat (Rahimahullah – may Allah have mercy on him).
2016 Islam.Filipino. Spread Islam to mankind without borders. All credit belongs to the Lord of the worlds. In Him I place my trust from Whom I seek my reward.
