Shaykh Muhammad Hizaam حفظه الله | Making du’aa within sujood in a language other than Arabic

Ash-Shaykh Muhammad bin Hizaam was asked the following question,

‎سؤال: هل يجوز الدعاء في السجود بغير اللغة العربية كالصومالية لمن لم يحسن اللغة العربية؟

Question: Is the du’aa in prostration permissible in other than the Arabic Language, like Somali for the one who isn’t proficient in the Arabic Language?

‎الجواب: نعم. يجوز الدعاء بذلك ولكن التسبيح

‎ يسبح باللغة العربية سبحان ربي الأعلى فهو سهل وليس فيه مشقة يسبح باللغة العربية ثم إذا أراد أن يدعوا دعا بلغته التي يستطيع أن يدعوا بها, فلا بأس عليه في ذلك .

Answer: Yes, the du’aa (of another language within prostration) is permissible, however the tasbeeh is made in the Arabic Language (i.e “Subhana Rabiyal’Alaa”), for this is easy and isn’t difficult – He makes Tasbih in the Arabic Language. Then if he wants to make du’aa in his language which he is able to -he makes du’aa in it. So, there is nothing wrong upon him in that.
