The Ruling on a New Muslim Not Being Able to Pronounce the Shahadah Properly When Entering into Islam – Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen

Question: Some new Muslims, when their being prompted to recite the Shahadah [to enter Into Islam], are not able to pronounce it properly?

Answer: “There is no harm in this due to His statement, the Exalted:

لاَ يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلاَّ وُسْعَهَا

Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope [2:286]”

[Fataawa Su’aal ‘alal-Haatif (2/699)]
