    You do know that people speak Arabic in Morocco? True, their dialect will be different from that of (eg) the Gulf states, or Lebanon, or $insert_arabic_country_here. But it would seem to me that it would be more useful to get a "standard" Arabic translation - where standard Arabic is what the Quran is written in - unless you have the resources to have a veritable host of Arabic dialects translated. Standard Arabic will be understood throughout the Arab world.
    • Standard Arabic means using the Modern Standard Arabic, official language in the arabophone countries, which is quite modernized compared to the Classical Arabic (the one the Quran is written in.) Link [arabacademy.com].
    • And all Jouke needs is a Modern Standard Arab!
