Why do you have to speak Arabic in order for you to become a Muslim?

No, one does not have to speak Arabic in order to become a Muslim. There are approximately 1.8 billion Muslims around the world spread across Central Asia to the entire Middle East and Western Asia (except Armenia and Israel), all of North Africa, as well as many countries in West Africa, South Asia and Maritime Southeast Asia. They all speak diverse native languages ranging from Arabic to Urdu, Pashto, Tajik, Lampung, Hindi, Turkish, Malay and many more.

It is encouraged to learn Arabic to be able to read the Quran (Islamic scripture) and offer five daily prayers in it, as this is the language of the scripture. Muslims learn to read the Quran and the daily five prayers in Arabic from childhood. The Quran and prayers can be read in Arabic, as well as in native languages. However, if one can then it’s encouraged and considered preferable to do it in Arabic.

Disclaimer: I am not a religious scholar. I tried to answer this question with the best of my knowledge and understanding of Islam as a Muslim.

The queer Christian community, whether they identify as queer or not, is diverse. Many hold to various interpretations of Scripture and what they believe God asks of them. Queller used his voice to stand for those in this community who find their sexual orientations part of God’s beautiful design and creativity and something to be celebrated. I would like to use mine for those in the queer Christian community who believe God calls them to a different path.
