    Title: Is DUA during SAJDA in SALAAT is permissible

    Question: Can dua be read in our own language in the salah when in sajdah? Please can you give Hadith or Sunnah reference for your answer because in sajdah the person is the most closest to Allah.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1389/1389/M=11/1434) It is not lawful to supplicate in any language other than Arabic in the sajdahs of salah. It is mentioned in Dur Mukhtar: ودعا بالعربية وحرم بغيرها. Dua may be done in Arabic language provided one is not using ordinary. And if someone is leading the salah then it is better for him not to read any other thing in the sajdah except the tasbih of sajdah. وكذا لا يأتى فى ركوعه وسجوده بغير التسبيح على المذهب الخ (در مختار)
