The Ruling on Explaining the Shahadah to a New Muslim in Their Language Before Having Them Recite it in Arabic – Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen

Question: In relation to new Muslims, we have them recite the Shahadah after explaining it to them in their language so that they understand it first.Then we have them recite it in the Arabic language. Is there any harm in that?

Answer: “This is good. There is no harm in it”
