Things Muslims Say

Bismillahir rahmanir raheem

muslim talk?

As a new Muslim, I would often get confused by these words/ phrases. Everyone seemed to know what they were and I didn’t want to be the “new Muslim” that didn’t know. Khutbahs and conversatins became mental gymnastics to try and keep up with what was going on.

Years on, as Muslims I have noticed we shorten them or take them for granted. Everything from Allah swt has sent is a sign and a reminder and these phrases in particular are a form of dhikr (remembrance).

So let me introduce you to “Things Muslims Say”, a series to revive the importance of these oft used phrases inshaAllah!

    I’ve never thought about it, but I guess those words would be confusing for a new Muslim, and the rest of us are so accustomed to using them that we don’t always reflect on what they mean. Looking forward to your future posts inshaAllah.
