My good friend told me that she reads my blog but has a hard time trying to understand it. So I decicded to make like a little dictioanry for the words that I use on my site that may be hard to understand:
aSw=Assalam ‘alaykum: literal meaning is “Peace be unto you,” a greeting Muslims use.
hamdulillah-its really written al-hamdulillah but I juss write funny: literal meaning is “All praises be to Allah,” it can also be said when hearing good news, when sneezing, or I juss usually say hamdulillah a lot
inshaAllah: “If Allah wills,” its said when you are intending to do something, or like when you are hoping for something, ex: “inshaAllah I will get a really high GPA this semester!”
mashaAllah: “What Allah Likes,” say when you appreciate something
subhanAllah: “Glory be to Allah,” say when you praise someone or something.
JazakAllah//JazakAllah Khayr: “May Allah reward you,” you say it when thanking someone
juss=just-I juss don’t know proper English.
Ummah: community or nation
Allahumma sali ala sayyidina muhammadin an-Nabbiyil ummiyi Wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salim: Salawat for the Prophet Muhammed (peace and blessing be upon him)-a way to remember him, there are different Salawat’s
radf: my pen name
