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”

Forexample:

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.


Say/When/Translation

Wa’alaikum Assalam

Translation: And peace be upon you

Assalamu ‘a...
