Why do MUSLIMS worship in Arabic? What if we do that in THEIR own language?
When considered first, it seems more sensible for a believer to worship his Sustainer in his own language. However, when contemplated thoroughly, there appear different outcomes:
First, we need to make a clear distinction between prayers and stated prayers (namaz). In prayers, a believer presents his needs and wishes to his Sustainer in any language he wants. This is a personal matter and has to do with a servants presenting his own needs and wishes to his Creator directly without a means. In prayer, everyone can supplicate from Allah in his own language.
The stated prayer (namaz) is quite different from that. In Namaz, all Muslims regardless of languages and races gather as if to form a single body and worship Him collectively. In this worship, like hearts, the language also needs to be in unison. What is more, worship must be performed in the way in which Allah (SWT) commanded and how His Messenger (PBUH) described to.

in this line,many people actually wonder why we muslims pray in arabic and do most acts of worship in arabic.some who were "muslims" have even abandoned islam because they believe they are following the language of another people.that all stems from misunderstanding.ofcourse the enemies of islam and the christian missionaries with their perfected acts of brainwashing and deceptive preaching take advantage of the muslim state of ignorance.
