Ruling on making du’aa’ in English

Question: 11588

Can I recite duaa's in English?.

Praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah and his family.

Making du’aa’ in English or in any other language is permissible outside of salaah (prayer). But it is not permissible to say any part of the salaah in any language other than Arabic, according to the majority of scholars. 

But if the Muslim can stick to Arabic in all cases, especially in acts of worship – and du’aa’ is an act of worship – that is preferable and is better.
