Campaign Story

Rohingya are the indigenous Muslim ethnic minority of Burma (Myanmar) mainly residing in Arakan (Rakhine) state. The Rohingya are considered the most persecuted minority in the world. The plight of the Rohingya is well known at an international level. Nearly every other day we read or hear something about them. The discrimination against Rohingya Muslims not only kept them behind in the sociopolitical field, but in fact they have blocked Rohingya Muslims from their spiritual and mental development and growth too. The very essence of the discrimination against the Rohingya was based on their religion and race. 

Despite all that the Rohingya have been put through, the recitation and listening of the Holy Quran is something the community holds on to dearly. Despite this love, many if not most of the Rohingya cannot understand the Quran as there is no translation of the Quran in the Rohingya language and because of the majority having to flee to different lands, it is next to impossible to dedicate time to study and understand the Quran like other communities.

Today, the situation on the ground in many refugee camps that we are witnessing is disturbing. The refugee camps are being targeted by Christian missionaries in the name of humanitarian aid to plant doubts regarding Islam in the minds of the Rohingya and call them towards Christianity. The missionaries have even translated large portions of the Bible to the Rohingya language to propagate their call better.

In response to this, and with a strong sense of responsibility towards our brothers and sisters, a dedicated Rohingya has come together to facilitate the translation of the Quran into the Rohingya language.

This campaign is an unprecedented initiative in the Rohingya history, aiming to connect the nation to the Book of Allah by facilitating its translation into their mother tongue.

Solution

This Project aims to deliver:
– HD videos of 114 Surahs
– Dedicated channels on social media channels to publish the content.
– A dedicated site to download and distribution of the translation to the public.

Why audio and video format? While the Rohingya language is spoken and understood by 1.8 million people, its written format- the alphabets and vocabulary – has gone through several changes over the centuries. In the 1980s, a Rohingya scholar, Maulana Muhammad Hanif, who lives in Bangladesh, finally developed a language system now known as the Rohingya Hanifi, to standardise the language and make it easy for people to learn it. 

Illiteracy is rife among the Rohingyas –  most of whom now live in congested refugee camps in Bangladesh. They have been deprived of education and jobs for decades. Even if the translation is done in the form of text, majority of the Rohingya still won’t be able to access it. This calls for the need of audio and video translations.

This project requires a team of 3-5 people to carry out the task to produce the deliverables along with the necessary equipment, facilities and recourse. The estimated cost for the entire project is about USD 81,000. This campaign aims to sustain the ongoing project work.

RVision has been empowering Rohingya children, youth and women, in their culture, history and spirituality that have been long neglected and are at the edge of extinction. The first phase of the project will focus on translating The Quran in Rohingya language. The second phase of the project will focus on producing media based on the translation that includes voiceover, audio recording, graphics and montages etc. The King Fahad English and Urdu translation will be used as primary source and point of reference for the Rohingya translation. The translation of the divinely eloquent text into a minority language is even more tough because of the terminology and expressions used.

🇲🇾 Mari meyumbang kepada penterjemahan Al-Quran ke dalam Bahasa Rohingya yang pertama di dunia

Mari meyumbang kepada penterjemahan Al-Quran ke dalam Bahasa Rohingya yang pertama di dunia

Pelarian etnik Rohingya adalah golongan etnik minoriti Muslim Burma (Myanmar) yang berasal dari negeri Arakan (Rakhine). Mereka tidak diiktiraf Kerajaan Myanmar walaupun dikatakan mendiami wilayah itu sejak 500 tahun dahulu.

Kini, menurut Amnesty International, hampir satu juta pelarian Rohingya tinggal di kem-kem pelarian di Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, khususnya di kem pelarian di Kutupalong dan Nayapara, setelah mereka meninggalkan rumah mereka di Myanmar.

Isu diskriminasi terhadap Muslim Rohingya telah menyebabkan mereka ketinggalan dalam pelbagai aspek, termasuk bidang sosiopolitik, rohani dan mental. Namun, mereka tetap berpegang pada aktiviti membaca dan menghayati Al-Quran meskipun ramai tidak dapat memahami kitab Allah kerana tidak ada terjemahan yang sedia ada.

Sebagai umat Islam, ia adalah tanggungjawab kami untuk membela saudara-saudari Rohingya kami. Kempen ini adalah usaha kolaboratif antara seorang rakyat Rohingya dan organisasi lain untuk menterjemahkan Al-Quran ke dalam Bahasa Rohingya.

بادر بالمساهمة في حملة دعم لترجمة القران الكربم الي اللغة الروهنغيا 🇸🇦

بادر الان في دعم حملة ترجمة القرآن الكريم الى لغة الروهينغا لم تمنع الاعمال التعسفية مسلمي الروهينغا من اللحاق بالركب في المجالات الاجتماعية و السياسية فقط, وإنما منعتهم من النمو في شتى الميادين الروحية والتعليمية والنفسية ايضا. الحقيقة المرة هي أن جوهر محنة الروهينغا و قضاياهم قائم على أساس الدين و العرق ، ولكن للأسف الشديد لم يظهر إلى يومنا هذا أي تفسير أو ترجمة للقرآن الكريم الذي هو المصدر الأول للإسلام و الهداية إلى لغة الروهينغا, و نتيجة لذلك فإن غالبيتهم لا يمكنهم الى الان فهم كتاب الله بلغتهم الأم.  نشهد اليوم نشاطات مكثفة لمبشرين مسيحيين في مناطق تواجد الروهينغا و التي تعمل على استهداف العقيدة الاسلامية بالإغراء و الخدمات و الوعود مستغلين ظروفهم وأحوالهم المأساوية، و تستمر مساعيهم بشكل مكثف و جاد من خلال توفير وسائل تبشيرية أهمها ترجمة الكتاب المقدس المحرف الى لغة الروهينغا. عبرت مجموعة شبابية من أبناء الروهينغا عن قلقهم حيال هذا التطور الجديد داخل مجتمعهم المتحصن الذي لم يشهد أبدًا أي انحراف ديني في الماضي حتى في أصعب الظروف و الأحوال في داخل أراكان, شكل هؤلاء الشباب الغائرون على عقيدتهم وإيمانهم فريقا متخصصا من أبناء الروهينغا, ليقف متحدا في صف واحد ضد هذا المشروع التبشيري, و يعمل على تحقيق حلم الامة و نقله من السراب الى الواقع, ألا وهو نقل القران الكريم إلى لغة الروهينغا؛ ندعوا إخواننا المسلمين للوقوف معنا و توفير كامل الدعم لهذا المشروع الديني والعلمي النبيل و ذلك لإنقاذ أمتنا من براثن التنصير و مصائده.
