- What is the language of the Paradise? 7 answers
When speaking with a (fairly devout) Muslim friend, she encouraged me to learn Arabic in preparation for the afterlife. She said something to the effect that I will be asked questions in Arabic, and I'll need to learn Arabic in order to reply.
Question: Must a Muslim learn Arabic to communicate with Allah in the afterlife?
Obviously, Allah is not inhibited in any way from speaking or understanding English, my native language. It seems like there needn't be communication difficulties.
Also, it seems like I could either learn Arabic while waiting for judgement day, or Allah could just say "be" and I'll know Arabic if He wanted.
It may be, however, that learning Arabic is an act of worship, or something along those lines.
