Just a reminder to be mindful of our pronounciation of certain phrases:

Don't say:
quote:
مشى الله
"Mashallah"



Instead say:
quote:
ما شاء الله
"Maa shaa' Allaah"



The first one means: Allaah walked.

The second one means: It is as Allaah has willed.

Moosaa ibn John Richardson

And to add to Moosaa's post:

Don't say:

quote:
  
برك الله فيك      
"Barakallahu Feek"



Instead say:

quote:
  
بارك الله فيك      
"Baarakallahu Feek"




The first one: has meanings that are completely far from what the speaker would intend to say, some which cannot be attributed to Allah!

The second one means: May Allah bless you

Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah

Amma ba'd

Jazak Allaahu khairun, ya Moosa. May Allaah increase us in knowledge!

Shaykh 'Abdul-'Azeez ar-Rayyis (hafidhahullaah) when pointing out the errors people make concerning Tawheed, said:
quote:
And the erroneous statement of those who call the adhaan who say 'Allaahu akbaaar,' extending the sound of the baaa. This means - and we seek Allaah's refuge - that Allaah is 'a set of drums,' as the scholars of the legislation and Arabic language have mentioned.


Obviously, Allaahu akbar means Allaah is The Greatest.



Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.

Assalamu 'Alaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuhu

Does this apply to inshaa'Allah too? A lot of people have been asking me.

BarakAllaahu Feekum

And to add to the mistakes made in the athaan:

Don't say:

quote:
آلله أكبر
Aallahu Akbar (first vowel extended)


Instead say:

quote:
الله أكبر
Allahu Akbar


The first one means: Is Allah great? (In a question)
The second one means: Allah is Great!

Yes.

For Insha'Allaah, see verses: 2:70; 12:99; 18:69; 28:27; 37:102 (which, by the way, along with the other verses around it, includes a great lesson in Tawheed); and 48:27.

As for maashaa'Allaah, see: 7:188; 6:128; 10:49; 18:39 (this verse in particular gives an example of a situation when the wording should be used); and 87:7

These are excellent reminders and wonderful additions to the post.  May Allaah bless you all.

NOTE the difference between barak and baarak.

To add, there is no original Arabic use of the three-lettered (thulaathee) for the meaning related to blessings (barakah).  Rather, it means either to kneel down or its opposite: to stand firmly.  This leads us to understand that we should not say "mabrook" as well, since "baraka" has no maf'ool, it is laazim, nor is the meaning something that is intended when people want to congratulate someone.  They should make du'aa' for barakah, if they say "mubaarak" it could replace the commonly used but mistaken "mabrook".  This is based on the understanding that the Arabic language does not evolve (meaning words that already have meanings), rather it remains as the original Arabs used it, the language that is used to understand the Qur'aan.  And Allaah knows best.

As for "inshallah" as some people say, I don't know of any meaning for it in Arabic, it is properly pronounced: "in shaa' Allaah".

May Allaah reward the one who sent me this explanation by Shaykh 'Uthaymeen rahimahullah: Shaykh Ibn al-Uthaymeen - When to say Maa shaa' Allaah Tabarak Allah...

Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah

Amma ba'd

How about when some people say the salam in such a hurry that they - unintentionally - leave out the 'lam' and instead say "as-samu 'alaykum," which means death be upon you.

As-salamu 'alaykum.
