As more locals are increasingly embracing Islam in the region, Muslims in the Caribbean island of Cruzao have unveiled a translation of the meanings of the Noble Qur'an into the Papiamento language, which is widely spoken in the coastal area.
"It's a dream come true," Naser Hakim, a Muslim businessman in Cruzao, who sponsored the painstaking effort, said in statements published recently by the local Alcnoticias newspaper.

It took 25 translators and linguists seven years of hard work to bring this unprecedented translation to the light.
