    Assalamu alaikum,

    I would like to share this to my brothers and sisters as this might be helpful Insha Allaah. Some of you might already be aware of this Alhamdulillaah.

    I always use the expressions Gee, Geez, Jeez and other alterations of the same meaning until one day my friend heard me using these interjections. Alhamdulillaah she told me right away that these are alterations of the name Jesus :astag:

    There are other idle expressions that we might use unconciously and we should get rid of those and replace it with remembrance of Allaah.

    We can replace those idle expressions with
    May Allaah swt make us steadfast to our deen ameen.

    Jazaakillaahu khayran sister.

    Other statements such as "for goodness sake" which we use in the same sense, also have bad meanings. I'll leave you to think about this one and see why lol.

    "Dude"! we say that a lot, look it up and "bastard", we dont say that fearing its a swear word but actually its the reality of most kids at the moment.

    i usually say something like; my goodness, i think it is wrong, same as gosh,or my gosh,
    is just saying the word goodness also wrong?

    For God's sake is seperate and independant. I was talking to an English teacher about this, it means 'for the sake of good...' There were other similar common phrases but they haven't come to mind yet.

    Who knows what the literal meaning of hello is? I was taught that the original word of hello ws hell-on-you!

    I opened with hello, I'll close with salam alaikum.
    Who knows what the literal meaning of salam alaikum is?
