    Language of the Salat

    Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah

    Language of the Prayer


    As for he who is unable to say these supplications in Arabic, he says them in his language except for the Faatihah. It must be emphasized that it is not correct to read [in the prayer] the Faatihah, or other than it from the Qur`an,in other than the Arabic language.

    So, he who does not know the Faatihah says in its place:
    1. SubhaanAllaah
    2. wal-hamdulillaah
    3. wa laa illaah illa Allaah
    4. wAllaahu Akbar
    5. wa laa hawla wa la quwwata illa bIllah al-'Aalee-ul-Adheem
    This is due to the hadeeth of 'Abdullaah ibn Abee Awfaa [d. 87 AH] (radiallaahu 'anhu): A man came to the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and said: I am unable to recite anything from the Qur`an. So teach me that which will suffice me in its place. So he (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said: Say: SubhaanAllaah, wal-hamdulillaah, wa laa illaah illa Allaah, wAllaahu Akbar, wa laa hawla wa la quwwata illa bIllah al-'Aalee-ul-Adheem.
    Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk

    If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
