Mashidu noted at the forum that he is writing a Quran interpretation based on the Chinese culture.

Titled Al-Wa’z al-Hakim Lil-Quran al-Karim, the Quran exegesis is half completed, he said.

He added that because of lack of access to Shia Quran interpretations, he has used Sunni Tafsir works in his book.
