and about Islam
Traditionally arabic (islamic) writing
begins with Bismillah al-rahman
("In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent,
the Most Merciful")
This phrase constitutes the first verse of every "sura"
(or chapter) of the Quran
(except for the ninth sura), and is used in a number of contexts
Bismillah, " in the name of Allâh" is
said before you start actions ,
like entering a house , eating, drinking or mounting your bike.
Allah - The name
of God written in Arabic
is an Arabic spoken greeting used by Muslims.
The term salam in Arabic means "peace".
The greeting may also be transliterated as Asalam 'Alaykum
which means "peace be upon you".
The traditional response is Wa `Alaykum as-Salaam,
meaning "and upon you be peace".
This is the full version of the Islamic
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

is an arabic phrase meaning "Praise be to Allah".
In islam "the Hamdala" is used in special
situations as: After sneezing, after waking up,
response to "How are you? or in general every time a muslim
desires to praise Allah.
It is also used of many just as "thankfulness".
Insha´Allah is the Arabic term for
Insha Allah is said when speaking about plans
and events expected to occur in the future. The phrase also
acknowledges submission to God, with the speaker putting him
or herself into God's hands. Muslims believe
that everything is maktub [lit.:
written] and so whatever it is one wishes to do,
will only occur if it is within God's plan. This does not
take away from the concept of free will. One's use of Insha
Allah 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.
It indicates one's desire for being in tune with God's plan

(aš-šahadah ) is the Muslim declaration
of belief in the oneness of God (tawhid)
and acceptance of Muhammad as God’s prophet.
The declaration in its shortest form reads:
la ilaha illà l-Lah,
Muammadun rasulu l-Lah
"There is no god but God, Muhammad is the messenger of God"
The evil eye
It is a very common belief in many of
the Islamic countries that some people have evil eyes and
that some people can cast a spell.
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most
[113:1] Say, "I seek refuge in the
Lord of daybreak.
[113:2] "From the evils among His creations.
[113:3] "From the evils of darkness as it falls.
[113:4] "From the evils of the troublemakers.
[113:5] "From the evils of the envious when they envy."
Theese verses in the Qur´an
that there are envious people who have evil.
As for casting a spell, Quran
does mention that magic exist and that humans were taught
magic at a certain stage but they abused it and now Quran
condemn those who practice magic.
"It’s a myth that
becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy. People have this thought in
mind and then the minute something bad occurs they attribute it
to the 'evil eye'. There is no rationalisation of what is happening.
Simply reversion to strongly held beliefs, not reality just belief.
It’s a dangerous situation to engage in, because just think
of the power that you are giving people over your life! That makes
them some almighty force, which is only attributable in my view
to Allah. I know that I would not give someone the glory of controlling

A true story from Essaouira
One day a habitual drunkard
with soiled clothes entered the aera of the local mosque. He approached
a noble gentleman, a Hadj (who has made Pilgrimmage
to Mecca) and asked him if he could teach him how to pray.
With intense dislike the Hadj refused him and told him to go his
The drunkard saw another man who was washing his hands and he
asked the same. He was welcomed and was told: "Do just
the same things that I do, so you will learn".
The drunkard watched carefully how his new friend washed his hands,
face, head, ears and feet and he did the same. After this ritual
cleaning (1) they entered the mosque and began
their prayers (2) with the others. The drunkard
followed the movements and repeated the words of the others and
he kneeled down to to the floor and prostrated by pressing his
bare forehead, his palms, knees and the pads of the toes on the
floor.(3) But when they stand up again he didn´t
do the same.
"Psssss.......Please stand up! We continue our prayers
But he did not. When they finished the prayers by looking first
to their right and then to the left saying " as-salamu
^ alaykum " they all was confused by the drunkard who
still was prostrating.
So the nearest men went up to him but when they touched his shoulder
they found that he was dead. When the Hadj saw this he regretted
that it wasn´t he who had tought the drunkard how to pray
and he felt ashamed.
