On February, 3, in Simferopol took place presentation of books "Kitabymny ogrenem" ("I Study my Book»), "Dinimi ogrenem" ("I Study my religion"), "Dualarymny ogrenem" ("I Study my Prayers") and "Peygamberimni ogrenem" ("I Study my Prophet") which the representation of the Ministry on Affairs of Religion of the Turkish Republic in Crimea published for children.

The Ministry on Affairs of Religion of the Turkish Republic conducts an activity directed on education of the society in questions of religion, and providing correct interpretation of religion to the society more than in 40 countries of the world.

Recently the representation of the Ministry on Affairs of Religion of Turkish Republic in Crimea mastered a principle which instead of import from Turkey of the religious literature provides the publication of religious books in Crimea on the Crimean-Tatar language, and began its work in the given context. Operating by this principle, the representation published the books "I Study my book", "I Study my Religion", "I Study my Prayers" and "I Study my Prophet". These books teach children faith, rules of worshiping Allah and morals rules. The general circulation of the books makes 18 thousand copies (4,5 thousand copies each book).

In the program of books presentation which took place in the building of the representation of the Ministry on Affairs of Religion of Turkish Republic in Crimea participated the First Assistant to the Head of Majlis of the Crimean-Tatar people Refat Chubarov, the Mufti of Crimea Hadzi Emirali Ablayev, the Deputy Mufti of Crimea Zakir Kurtnezir, the Chairman of Association of the Crimean-Tatar Educators "Maarifchi" Safure Kadzhametova and the representative of the Ministry on Affairs of Religion of Turkish Republic Emin Patan.

R.Chubarov expressed his confidence that in 5-6 years religious books will be written by the Crimean Tatars, instead of translations from other language. He hopes that Islamic university which plans to open the Spiritual Management of Muslims of Crimea will gather youth which will write these books.

The Mufti of Crimea Emirali Ablaev, speaking on presentation, noted, "These books are very important for us, as we should provide studying of our religion and our Prophet to our children and grandchildren who follow us". The Mufti of Crimea also noticed that the child who does not know his religion, his Prophet, cannot serve neither to his Motherland, nor the people, the mother and the father.

The chairman of "Maarifchi" Safure Kadzhametova emphasized that because of the absence of necessary teachers and books, children who study in Russian schools, are compelled to visit Christianity lessons, and the given books will be very useful to the students, wishing to study religion.

The co-coordinator of the representation of the Ministry on Affairs of Religion of Turkish Republic Emin Patan noticed that the published books within one or two weeks will be systematically distributed to 15 Crimean-Tatar national schools of the peninsula. Having noticed that though these books are focused on children, they contain a lot of information for adults, Emmin Patan said, "In these books there is no other information, except what is connected with correct interpretation of Islamic religion. All information which contains in these books is correct, and precisely reflects principles of Islamic belief, rules of worship and morals".

It is necessary to notice that on February, 25th, 2007, the representation of the Ministry on Affairs of Religion of Turkish Republic in Crimea published the Holy Book of Muslims, the Quran, with meanings interpretation on the Crimean-Tatar language. The Quran is published in circulation of 4 thousand 192 copies. Also at the end of 2008 in circulation of 30 thousand was published the Arabian alphabet "Elifba" on the Crimean-Tatar language.
