Abstract

The creator of the whole universe revealed the holy Qur'an to all humanity. This message concerns not only the owners of the language from which it descends, but all humanity. So, it is necessary to translate this message into those languages for people from different cultures to understand. However, whether the Qur'an will be translated into other languages has been discussed throughout history, and positive and negative opinions about the issue continue. As a Muslim-dominated country, Bangladesh has been working on the translation of the Qur'an since the 18th century. This article discussed the translations of the Qur'an into Bengali in the Bangladesh period, worked to understand and explain the Qur'an and reflects the effect of the Qur'an on social life.
