Arabic Lessons Part I
At our twice monthly meetings of the BNSCP we end each session with a little cultural/language sharing. Here’s an example of one session where we learned a new word in Arabic, In shaa’Allah (Arabic: إن شاء الله)
This term is often used as a response to well wishing and such. It translates into English as “God willing”, or “if God wills it”.
“One’s use of Insha Allāh indicates not one’s desire to succeed in an endeavor, but rather that the endeavor one embarks on will be within God’s will, which might be interpreted as that which is best for Humanity, the Earth, and all of Allah’s creation.”
