Dear @Poji1234

Welcome back to the Wefugees Community and thank you for your question. 

Unfortunately, the "Duldung" (temporary suspension of the deportation) is not considered to be a "legal residence" (rechtmäßiger Aufenthalt) and therefore these years (while holding a Duldung) can not be counted regarding the requirements for the permanent residence permit (Niederlassungserlaubnis) or naturalization. 

I am sorry that I can not give you any more positive news here. 

In any case, please don't hesitate to get back to us with any further questions. 

All the best,
