QUESTION: Asslamualekum brother
I heard from many Muslim brothers I don't have any reference ,please can you tell me regarding this matter actually what is language in heaven and in hell?

Walaikum As Salaam brother,

Honestly I have never heard of this before, thus needed to do some research on this one. As per my research there is no mention of the people of Jannah speaking Arabic anywhere either in the Quran or the Shaheeh Hadith. Also as per my research, there was no discussion of this topic among the Sahabah(RAA). Though later scholars have debated this topic.

The only reasonable conclusion we can arrive at is "Its unknown what language the people of paradise or of the hell fire will speak as we do not have any mention of the same from Allah SWT in the Quraan or His messenger (SAS) in the shaheeh Hadith.

The next time any muslim brother tells you this, please ask him VERY VERY POLITELY for the reference. When he cannot give you a reference, request him to kindly stop talking about things which cannot be concluded for sure either from the Quran or the Shaheeh Hadith.

and Allah Knows Best.

AS Salaam O Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barkatahu
