The parentheses show where the first letter of each capital starts and in which direction it’s headed. (Over if N was #1 and V was #18,Down if N was #1 and X was #18,Direction the word is going).

End Everything with Alhamdulillah {Free Printable}

ACraftyArab End Everything with AlhamdullialToday’s free printable is the third in a series and says “End Everything with Alhamdulillah.”

 

Alhamdulillah is Arabic for Praise God. It is used by Muslims of every background, but also spoken by Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews.
From Wikipedia:

The word “Allah” is itself the fusion of the definite article al (the) and the word ilah (a god, deity). Like in English, the article is used here to single out the noun as being the only one of its kind, “the god” (the one and only) or “God” with a capital G (the concept of capital letters does not exist in Arabic). Therefore, “Allah” is the Arabic word for “God”. “ilāh” is the Arabic cognate of the ancient Semitic name for God, El.

So frequently do Muslims and Arabic-speaking Jews and Christians invoke this phrase that the quadriliteral verb hamdala (حمدل), “to say al-Hamdu li-‘llah” was coined, and the derived noun hamdalah (حمدلة) is used as a name for this phrase.

 

Arabs often say this phase when a task is complete.

 

I chose it to finish off the three part series of prints, Begin Everything with Bismillah, Plan Everything with Ihsan and now you can download today’s free print here.
