Afghan-Language Resources

As you build relationships with Afghans in your community, it can be helpful to know where to find solid biblical resources published in their heart languages. Most Afghans coming to the United States speak Dari (a Persian dialect) or Pashto (which encompasses several dialects, including Nangarhari and Kandahari), the two official languages of Afghanistan. In addition, a minority speak Hazaragi, which is similar to Dari.
