Hello there Smaa . . . looking forward to seeing u around on the forums. . .
 
Seeks: lol, how does 'Allah Hafiz' denote that one is Asian? I never thought of that! but yea, mostly asians use it . . .why I wonder. I thought they said 'Khuda Hafiz' . . .

Mostly, we Indians and Pakistanis, use it. Its my observation. Now, i see people shifting from khuda to Allah.  Hafiz is the same Smile.
 
Other observation is the way of salam. We can easily trace them.

When I was a kid, I would also use 'Khuda Hafiz' . . .but since Khuda is a general term, for any 'god' or God . . . I shifted to 'Allah Hafiz' . . . since Allah is more specific for me.
 
Also, curiosity makes me ask . . .how can u tell by the salaam?
 
  
What is the correct Islamic way to greet a person before leaving? Accord to Sunnah/Hadith?

walaikumsalam, how are you doing? i dont know anything about you but it's so nice to see that you actually replied me. yeh, i am an asian but its not necessary that only asians use allah hafiz. I have heard people from other regions use "Allah Hafiz" Any ways, tell me about yourself and I thought nobody would reply so i didnt even login to see if i have any replies. well, take care and allah hafiz

lol you guys are making allah hafiz such an issue. allah is god and god is allah and hafiz is one of his names so i dont think that it actually matters whether you use allah hafiz or khuda hafiz. but as you see allah is more specific. well this is the second time i came on this form and hope to see you here too soon. till then take care and allah hafiz

Samaa: why dont you click on the e-mail notification for the topic? (at the end of the page) That way, you wont have to log-in everytime just to check and see if you have replies. You'll be notified by email if somebody replies to your post.

Thats ok :) nobody is making an issue out of 'Allah Hafiz' :p . . . just discussing it.

See you around.
