Question: I love a girl a lot, and she understands this but does not say anything. I want to marry her. Is it permissible to pray to God that I marry her? During sajdah, the servant is close to Allah. So is it possible to ask for anything in my Bengali language during the sajdah of the nafl prayer?
Thank you for your question.
1) I pray that Allah unites you with your beloved if it is good for you. I highly recommend that you still pray istikhara about her and take a free course on marriage in order to prepare yourself. Please see this link for the full answer:
2) As for making du’a in one’s native language during the prostration (sajdah) of the prayer, you will find the full answers linked here:
May Allah reward you for your sincerity and effort.
