The study analyses the impact of this translation on the Brahui community, both culturally and linguistically, and how it has influenced the development of Brahui literature over the years. Using a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods, the study examines the linguistic features and stylistic elements of the translations and their impact on the language and literature. Additionally, the research investigates the social, religious, and cultural contexts in which these translations were produced, and the factors that shaped their content and reception.
