It was said by Ismet Binark & HalitEren regarding translations of the meanings of Holy Quran: It seems that the translations of the meanings of Holy Qur’an was a matter of serious consideration from the early period of Islam. Non-Muslims felt the need of an explanation of the Holy Qur’an in Languages other than Arabic.
