How can Latin Speaking people perform Prayers?

By:
Ayatullah Makarim Shirazi & Ayatullah Ja'far Subhani

Question: In the countries where Latin languages are spoken if the people of those countries become Muslim and want to pray Prayers or recite supplications, is it possible for them to learn the proper Arabic language with the correct pronunciations?
Answer: As we already know most of them are literate for whom it is not difficult to learn the Quran and Prayers in Arabic. They are even interested to learn Eastern sciences and even learn Arabic in many universities of that country. Just as when we learn their language we try to learn their exact pronunciation and tone.
As far as their illiterate minority is concerned, they can learn Arabic words according to their capacity and whatever they have learnt or can learn, the Almighty Allah does not demand anything more from them. Though it is necessary that all Muslims should learn the Quran and Prayers with proper Arabic pronunciation but it is upto the personal capacity of the people. Islam does not demand anything beyond ones capacity.
