Maasina Fulfulde (Fulfulde Maasina) Bible

Maasina Fulfulde (or Maasinankoore in the language itself) is a Fula language spoken primarily as a first language by Fula people and associated groups in the Inner Niger Delta area traditionally known as Macina in the center of what is now the West African state of Mali. It is also spoken elsewhere in Mali, parts of Cote d'Ivoire and Northern Ghana. Maasinankoore is the most widely spoken dialect of Fula spoken in Mali and is a national language of the country.According to Ethnologue there are two dialects - Western and Eastern - and "There are some dialect differences, but popular opinion is that all dialects in Mali are inherently intelligible." It is written in a modified Latin alphabet but historically was written in the Arabic script.
