No you don't have to be able to draw in your painting. I run painting classes where you can create an amazing painting without drawing. It is so much fun and it frees up your mind and releases all the blocks that stop you from participating in other areas of your life. Painting realisticly requires skill in drawing and seeing but there are other techniques to create an image without being good at drawing.
If you want to paint, just let go of all learned control and let the paint control you. You can create an impression or feel rather than a tight specific realistic image. Treat the canvas or other surfaces with ares of dry and wet, sand, anything interesting. Choose 2 colours that resonate with how you feel and using a huge brush or a tool that is not a regular paintbrush and make movements moving the paint across the surface. Make marks that reflect your feelings, your energy, your senses, and trust that you are painting from your heart and it will show. Drawing is not needed and can hinder openness and intuitive responses to your creativity. Layer on layer of paint gives you the freedom to make mistakes and change marks or ares of colour until you remove the painting.

Hi Jacque

You do not need to know how to draw before taking painting classes. Generally you are given drawing information in the painting classes as you need.
