Hello!
 
I am a new Muslim (VERY NEW! I took my shahadah yesterday) and I've pretty much spent all day yesterday and today with my new sisters. I hear so many arabic phrases that everyone seems to know and I am super lost.
 
They greet me with Assalamu alaikum and I was told the response to that was a little different. Can someone elaborate?
 
I know how to use Alhamdulillah and Inshallah, but what about others such as Subhanallah (spelling?) etc. I want to know as many phrases as possible to praise Allah (swt) whenever possible Big%20smile
 
Can someone also explain the (swt) and (pbuh) and all? I know what they mean...I think, and that it's best to use them, but I am just sooo new. Forgive my newbie-ness!
 
Lalli

Salam,

Sister, here are some common words. Please refer to the link:

http://www.islamic-dictionary.com/ - Assalamu Alaikum

(السلام عليكم)

Grammar: greeting; two words;Peace be unto you. It is a shortened form of the grand greeting: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh (Peace be unto you and so may the mercy of Allah and His blessings). The greeting is recommended to be only used between Muslims.

 

 

Wa Alaikum Assalam (Reply to the greeting)

(و عليكم السلام)

Grammar: word;When a Muslim is greeted with the word 'salam' or its variants, they should reply Wa Alaikum as-Salam - And upon you be peace.

Subhanallah

(swt)

(~)

Grammar: acronym;SWT is an abbraviation of Subhanahu wa Ta'ala which means 'Glorious is He and He is Exalted' and it is placed after the name of God like so: Allah (SWT), as a sign of reverence.
