Can I make

00:00:02--> 00:00:04

in my prayer in my own language?

00:00:08--> 00:00:23

unhemmed allow salatu salam ala rasulillah, about this question in regard to making dua during the Salah during prayer with language other than Arabic language, would that be permissible according to the strongest opinion of the

00:00:24--> 00:00:48

law, that it is allowed for those who don't know Arabic, and when I say don't know, they don't know how to say it, they don't know what it means. Even if they say words but the the can understand the meaning of it or reflect upon the meaning of these words, these da has no impact on them. These are the considered people who don't understand Arabic language

00:00:49--> 00:01:04

or they don't understand fully what they are saying like a lot of new Muslims, people who don't know Arabic at all those people it is allowed for them to make out their own language, even if you know how to how not to be

00:01:05--> 00:01:45

in an Arabic You can follow that with your with your own language, English, French or do Bengali Malay whatever language that you speak it will be permissible and even in Abu hanifa Rahim Allah go further said even if you know Arabic are allowed to make language with other than Arabic language but the majority of the heart said for those who cannot they can do it in their own language. And I feel very comfortable with that. I encourage you to take advantage of your Salah to make the and it doesn't matter obligatory prayer or volunteer prayers. May Allah subhanaw taala accept from all of us.
