Question:

Please can you clarify this for
me? Is it permissible in an
obligatory prayer to make a
supplication for one's worldly
need in Sujood as well as in the
final part of prayer before
saying salaams to both angels
on one's shoulders? The
supplication made in the
English language will it makes
the prayer invalid.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and
Messenger, may Allah exalt his
mention as well as that of his
family and all his companions.

The scholars, may Allah have
mercy on them, differed in
opinion about the ruling of
making a supplication in
another language than Arabic
during the prayer. Some of
them forbade it and some
others permitted it. Moreover,
some of them distinguished
between the one who is able to
supplicate in Arabic and the one
who is not able to supplicate in
Arabic.
Nevertheless, there is no text
from the Quran so that one
group would [base his evidence
to] refute the opinion of the
other group. However, the most
correct opinion, Inshaa' Allah,
[in our view] is that it is more
appropriate for a person to
supplicate in Arabic if he
understands the meaning.
He can for instance choose to
say the following supplication:
[ Allahumma inni as alukal-Jannah wa
a'uuthu bika minan-naar ] "O Allah! I
ask you to grant me Paradise and I take
refuge in You from Hellfire'', or
[ Allahumma inni as alukal-huda wat-
tuqa, wal-'afaafa wal-ghina] "O Allah! I
beseech You for guidance, piety,
chastity and contentment.", or any
other supplication in order to achieve
the benefits of this world.
But if one is unable to make
these supplications in Arabic, he
can supplicate in his own
language whether that is in
relation to the matters of this
world or the Hereafter. It is
preferable, though, if these
supplications include the
translation of some legislated
translations that are translated
into English [in Hisnul-Muslim, i.e.
the fortification of a Muslim, for
instance] .

Allah knows best.
