Imam Shūmei Ōkawa the first person who translated the Noble Quran into Japanese

Everyone who recites Quran here in Japan owes it to this person (after Allah), Imam Shūmei Ōkawa, who made the first translation of the entire Quran into the Japanese language while hospitalized, after he reported seeing the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him in a dream! He was briefly jailed by the American occupation, then went back to his village Sakata, and continued his Daa’wa efforts until he died in 1957. May Allah grant him Firdaws!
Ameen, In sha Allah
