Very Quick Question For An Outsider

Recommended Posts

Greetings!

 

I was wondering if someone might be able to lend me a hand with something. I am not on the straight path, but my respect for it, as well as you is very great to say the least. But I am a person who believes in truth in action. I prefer not to use words or names that I do not fully understand, as words, names, and oaths have special meaning and power. However, I am also here to learn and I do wish to use words wisely and honestly, with the full backing of my respect and, for things such as words from the Quran and Hadith, with my spirit. On that note, would someone be willing to explain what the (SWT) signifies behind Allah? It's not just humans I don't want to offend using that name without knowledge. And lastly, would anyone be willing to introduce me to a few commonly used phrases, greetings or blessings? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

 

 

Many thanks,

On succeeding:

Allahu Akbar (Allah is the greatest)

 

When faced with calamity/during helplessness

 

La hawla wa la kuwatha illa billah (There is no might or strength but with Allah)

 

On mentioning the prophet's name:

 

Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam(May Allah's blessings and peace be upon him)

 

This one is not very common(I think).But it is the prophet's practice to say

When an unwanted/disliked thing happens

Qadarullahi wa maasha a fa'ala (It is the Decree of Allah and He does whatever He wills.)

Jazakullah khair!

 

You have helped me more than you know. Thank you very much. Now it is my responsibility to find some audio examples so I can begin to shape my mouth, so that I not only write them, but am able to speak them in my head correctly. Perhaps others will find this thread helpful too.

I wanted to add one more to the list provided by the brothers and sister: Ash'hadu an la ilaha illa Allah (I testify that there is no god but Allah) wa ash'hadu anna Muhammadan rasool-ul-llah (and I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah).

 

This phrase is the most important one in Islam, because it is the foundation of the religion. It is the Shahada, the first pillar of Islam. The first thing that a person does when they become a Muslim is to declare the Shahada, and Muslims often say it many times throughout the day in their daily prayers.

 

Salam.
