A number of books by Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, which have been translated into many other languages, are now available in Kurdish. Gülen has written many books on a variety of religious and Islamic topics that attract a large number of readers from all around the world. In order for the books to reach even more readers, they have been translated into a variety of languages, including Spanish, Russian and English. Kaynak Publications recently translated books by Gülen into Kurdish.

“İnancın Gölgesinde” (The Essentials of the Islamic Faith), “Ölüm Ötesi Hayat” (Life After Death) and “Ölçü veya Yoldaki Işıklar” (Criteria or Lights of the Way) are among the books which are now available in Kurdish. The translators, Mesut Kızmaz and Nezir Gümüş, emphasized the wide geographical range and number of people the books reach out to, adding that the new translations will mean the books also find many readers among Kurdish language speakers.
