Download Summary

This lesson highlights the meaning and importance of “Alhamdulillah” [الحَمْدُ لله  ]. It is one of the most common words used by Muslims aside “Allahu Akbar” and “sallamu Alaikum”. Also Arabic words and grammar are highlighted.


  1. Alhamdulillah is an Arabic term often used by Muslims during conversation to express their satisfaction or gratitude for Allah’s blessings upon them. It is a word made up of about 3 parts:
  2. Al, meaning “the”, [ال ].
  3. Hamdu, meaning “praise”, [حَمدُ ].
  4. Li-lah, meaning “to Allah” (the word Allah is actually a combination of al, meaning “the” and ilah, meaning deity or God. [لله ].
  5. A Name of Allah that coincides with Hamd[حَمْدْ ] is Al-Hameed[الحَميدْ  ]. Almighty Allah is Al-Hameed, The Most Praiseworthy.
  6. Mahmood [مَحْمودْ ] is one who is praised only when they are praised by someone. Hameed [حَميدْ  ] is One who is ALWAYS deserving of praise, NO MATTER if He is praised or not. So Almighty Allah is THE Most Praiseworthy, if we do hamd [حَمْدْ  ] of Him or not.
  7. Alhamdulillah can be used in several different ways depending on the condition of usage. However, in each case, the speaker is giving thanks to Allah (SWT).
  8. The Prophet (s) advised us that saying al-hamdulillah, or ‘All praises be to Allah’, fills the scale. Al-hamdulillah is an expression of both praise and gratitude to Allah (swt).
