as Alamo alaykoom brother,

My question is about prayer because I heard that when you pray Salah you have to know what your saying because for someone who reads Salah in Arabic and then you think in your head the meaning after you said it but not by moving your tongue can you do that or you have to say the meaning with it along the Arabic word but you get wasswaa and you loose concentration what you said or is it that you have to learn Arabic as a language tongue then obviously you'll know the meaning like we know English or Urdu or you just say the Arabic words nice and clear, is that it? thank you please help me with this and explain in basic English and in detail  as soon as possible because I pray 5 times and I don't want my Salah not to be accepted, Allah hafiz,salam,i'll be awaiting your reply

Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)


Dear Brother/Sister,

One is to listen carefully when quran is recited.
So when you are behind imam just listen to the Quran when recited in loud voice.

Your salah will be accepted if you do the ruku/sajda properly and if you recite the ayats in arabic - it doesnt matter if you understand the meaning or not. Its a ritual in arabic language.

However its better to learn the arabic language so you can also understand the commandments of the quran.


Its my duty to help those in need. You are free to ask as many questions as you like.
