Say Alhamdulillah :-
Alhamdulillah is the most common term for any Muslim throughout the world, it means All praise be to Allah and also the first Surah of the Quran Al-Fatihah begins with Alhamdulillahi Rabbil A’alameen. So today I would like to give you the Arabic description of the most commonly used term Alhamdulillah. The main purpose of giving this description is not to bore you but to make you realize the exemplary usage of the words by Allah(Azzawajjal). The way our Rabb describes everything in just simple usage of words. SubhanAllah. So let’s begin….
Al-Hamdu-Li-Allah .. The word Al-Hamdu means The Praise.. Now time for a quiz.. Is the word “praise” a noun or a verb.?? Guess quickly…………….
If you said it is a verb then you are ….. wrooonnng .. never mind I understand… sometimes we make wrong guesses, but that’s just ok!!
“Praise” is a noun.Those who guessed it right congratulations people ❤ ❤ … The phrases “I praise” or “We Praise” these refer to actions i.e verbs.
Now time for another question, what is the quality of a noun and a verb..?
Allow me to answer .. a verb has tense.. it is either in past, present or future tense. So when it has a tense and as it is an action it will require a doer i.e someone who does the act. Then coming to nouns, a noun has no tense, it can either be the name of a person or a place or it can be an idea… and in the case of Arabic language nouns also include adjectives and adverbs and the list is big… but coming to the point as I said that noun has no tense, meaning it is not an action, so it will not have any doer…. Sooo.. I’m super excited to write this…!!
Allah(Azzawajjal) uses a noun in the verse Alhamdulillahi Rabbil A’alameen, which means Allah’s Hamd doesn’t require any doer…. you got my point?? Let me explain it a bit more…
In the place of the word “Al-Hamd”(The Praise), if Allah had used Ahmadu(I Praise) or Nahmadu(We Praise), then as I said before, these two are verbs and verbs require a doer.. So as long as the doer does the act, the act is present.. Meaning till the time the doer is present and does the act of praising, only till then the praise exists, but what after that… Notice what Allah has used, He(SWT) has used a noun which means it is timeless.. it has no tense… it does not require a doer… whether we praise Allah or not His praise exists, Allah does not need our praise but we are in need of it.. Allah is As-Samad, He is self sufficient, but we are His slaves.. How in just one word Allah describes everything… just everything.. isn’t this amazing!! In every word Allah says, He(SWT), crushes our pride so beautifully.. we are nothing but just slaves of Allah, So do not be too proud of yourself, so that you forget about your originality..
So, that’s it people!! Hope I have made myself clear and if any other views please comment below and let me know them.. keep praising and thanking Allah.. Alhamdulillah 🙂
