  • Offering Namaz In A Different Language

    Posted by Shahram Sohail on May 14, 2021 at 10:04 am

    Can we make a person stand behind Imam so he can translate Surah Fateha and the other surah Imam recites aloud in three prayers (Fajar, Magrib, Isha).

    Imam Will recite in Arabic and a guy behind him can translate it into the language of natives. Is it permissible? Please answer.

    During prayers, Quran has to be recited in arabic. After or before prayer, Imam can translate what he will recite or recited. During prayers, it cannot be done as it may create chaos and take extra time.
    @Irfan76 Can you kindly provide your insights in this matter?

    Translation of Qruan during prayer should be a personal endeavor as in personal prayers to avoid dispute over differences of translations. However, if a group is agreed on a translation, they may recited it too along with Arabic. Still it is not advisable. it will arise unnecessary rift. one should try to lean Arabic enough to know the meaning of Quran or lean the translation for certain suras to recite during the prayers.

      Of course the translation on which administration of Mosque agrees will be recited. What you are saying is very hard to achieve…

      It has been 70 years since Pakistan came into being, how many people have learnt Arabic? How many will? Young Students can learn arabic but old people do not possess the ability to learn new language…and even if we learn new language, it can never have same effect on our heart as Urdu or Punjabi…

      People would create rift over anything so ignore it. I just want to know if any imam (Including Ghamidi shb) has said anything about this matter…

      I think we need to eradicate this rigidity from our prayers and instead of portraying it as a mechanical thing, we need to tell people that its their meeting with their Creator and at least they deserve to understand what their Creator is saying to them

      It is better to get wrong knowledge than not getting knowledge at all…this is how humans improve by questioning things they see, listen and understand.

      According to Ghamidi sb, Quran has to be recited in arabic during prayers. Optional azkar can be done in any language.
      Learning meaning of alteast Surah faitha is not difficult because most of the word are used in our languages too.

      Imam can talk about Quranic verses before and after prayers and explain.
      About rigidity, the prayers are not decied by us. Prophet Mohammad has shown us the way. We cannot modify obligatory parts on our own.

      In order to make prayers personal, we have optional parts which can be done in one own language.

      I am not saying that we will recite Quran in Urdu…we will recite in Arabic…what we are gonna do is we will have a person with good voice stand behind Imam who will translate it into Urdu…

      Imam will read a couple of verses and pause and the guy will read the translation aloud and then the Imam will continue.

      You are talking about personal prayers? Brother in today’s world we don’t even get to offer obligatory prayers let alone Nawafil…People are gonna come to Mosque for the five prayers and that’s the best time to give them Allah’s message…

      As Irfan sb who is scholar said its possible.
      About personal I meant optional azkar in prayer. Eg during tashud, sajda etc u can offer suplication in ur own language even in farz namaz
