Personal Observation (Saying Allhamadolillaha)

Dear All,

I want to share one of my personal observation in which i am quite sure after observing this thing from long time. (If you think that i am wrong in this, kindly correct me, leave a comment or emai me) so i can correct myself.

I have noticed that from last 1, 2 years saying Allahamadoillaha in reply of “How are you” becomes very common. I really appretiated this as being a muslim this is a very good thing.

But what i have observed that now a days this becomes a best tool to avoid a convseration. When you want to listen more and more, like if you ask “How are you, what are you doing now a days?” The other person just replies “Allahamadoillaha”. If then asked again “How is your family”, the person again replies “Allahamadolillaha”, if asked “How things are going”, you will again get the answer “Allahamadoillaha” even the other person which even want more just, you restirct him to ask more. Definitly the answer must be more than that, this is good if you say “Allahamadoillaha” this is the best, but one must be more responsive, must express more. Dont use this as a tool. This word has it own respect, dont use this word to stop the conversation. This should be the best start of your conversation.

Dont use this great word to stop the conversation, in fact this is suppose to give a best start. Kindly utilize “Allahamadolillaha” in its full manner.

I hope i will not hurt anyone, but if i am really sorry and if you feel i am wrong. Please do correct me.

Remember in prayers,
Wajahat Abbas



  1. You seem hit badly by the word:)
    You are right with what you said.
    But you its one of the things like people use InshaAllah for,
    The thing is due to ignoraance and lack of knowledge. People dont even know the correct meaning and they are not interested either…
    They strive to know the meaning of some stupid word but for this they think they know it, and actually they dont.
