Translation of the Risale-i Nur

About Project

The IFMT is currently co-ordinating the retranslation of Bediuzzaman Said Nursi’s magnum opus, the 6000-page Quranic commentary entitled Risale-i Nur (Epistles of Light). The re-translation has been commissioned in order to make the English language rendition more accessible and reader-friendly. The project is a collaborative one, utilising the translational and editorial talents of authors versed not only in Ottoman Turkish – the language in which the Risale was written – but also Arabic, Persian and, of course, English.
