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

meaning "and upon you be peace".

is an arabic phrase meaning "Praise be to Allah".
In islam "the Hamdala" is used in special

desires to praise Allah.
It is also used of many just as "thankfulness".

[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

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.

to Allah. I know that I would not give someone the glory of controlling
