    You don't have to be Arab to read the Quraan in English anyone can read it even though it ain't your first language. I do and I'm sure everyone else does excluding Arabs.
    I mean some are taught to read in arabic without really knowing the translations into their native language and some people have said you can only read the Qur'an in arabic as its original form or else it wont count. So what are the opinions here?

    Salaam

    I wanted to ask if it would be viable to read the Qur'an in english as opposed to arabic? seeing as if you are not arab and arabic isnt your first language so you're not understanding the arabic at all.
    W salam,

    Yes of course you can read the Quran in English. Understanding the Quran is paramount for every Muslim.

    Sorry for asking this question - you don't have to answer.
    Where you from? Where you ever taught to read in Arabic/Tajweed?
    From my own personal experience when I was a kid I was thought the urdu way. Later I went to learn it in Arabic, there are big differences in pronunciation.
    For your question - I think reading Quran with meaning is better. Just reading the translation is a virtue. The love and grace is far more evident in Arabic text.
    You can read it in English.

    'The best one if you recite the Qur'an and understand its meanings and you apply it in your daily activities in line with the Qur'an and hadith as life guide.'

    Tell me

    From my understanding, it sounds like a variant of 'bisti' which (iirc) means along the lines of shameful actions

    Do Muslims have hymns like Christians do?

    And what do Muslims actually say in their prayers? What happens if you can't think of anything to say?

    So I made a thread about rape and Ched Evans, and it was closed down instantly for being repetitive, but the same threads about certain Islamic topics have been made 1000 times and are allowed to be made so. What a joke of a moderator.

    Nothing like hymns as far as i know

    We recite chapters from the qur'an and say things like god is the greatest in between prostrating and bowing. We end our prayers by wishing peace to each of the angels besides our shoulders :yes:

    Because of the nature of the prayer, you dont really stop thinking of anything to say... You just recite from the quran like ive already stated

    There is a special prayer at funerals where we stay standing for the whole prayer :yes:

    We dont really pray for marriages. Rather, we make duaa (supplication) for the best for the couple

    There are also special prayers for the two festivals of eid
