Assalamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
Every Muslim / new convert should remember these essential expressions.
Note: Spellings may vary when translated to English
These expressions are mostly singular. For example to say ‘Jazak(i) Allahu Khair” to more than one person you would say ‘Jazakum Allahu Khairan’ and to say ‘Barak Allahu feek(i)” to more than one person is “Barak Allahu Feekum”
Masculine: Jazak Allahu Khair
Feminine: Jazaki Allahu Khair
Plural: Jazakum Allahu Khair
It is fine to speak in the masculine tense when speaking to women formally.
