Reciting dua in language other than Arabic


Assalam Alaikum Shaykh Sahab,

Can we recite Dua of Tawassul in our mother tounge or English as while reciting I don’t even know what I am reciting as I don’t know Arabic. Can we recite ishtikhara in mother tongue also and other duas? Or is it necessary that they are to be recited in Arabic only?



Walaikum Salam,

Please refer to these posts:
Durood Sharif/Salawat
Istikhara in Other Language
