Question Details

Question: I'm Muslim and English is my first language my question is in the hereafter we will be asked questions by two angels regarding our faith in Allah etc but since I don't speak Arabic will the questions that I am asked be spoken to me in English so I am able to understand and answer clearly? I suffer from anxiety so I need some sort of reassurance from yourself regarding this complicated question that I am asking.


The language of questioning in the grave or on the Day of Judgment should be the least of anyone's worries. Allah is All-Knowing. He knows the deepest secrets of our hearts even before we articulate them, regardless of the languages we speak. The Qur'an counts the diversity of human tongues and language as one of the great signs God's supreme knowledge, wisdom, and power: Allah says:
“And among his wonders is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the diversity of your tongues and colors: for in this, behold, there are messages indeed for all who are possessed of [innate] knowledge!” (Qur’an: 30: 22).
So, don’t worry about your inability to speak Arabic;  most certainly, Allah and His angels can speak in any language even as they can understand even your innermost thoughts before you express it. Therefore, I would advise you to work for your salvation by learning and practicing the faith as sincerely as you can. I pray to Allah to bless us all to live as Muslims and die in a real state faith and gather all together in the company of the righteous.
