  • JazakAllah Khair

    after reading a particular thread here in the forum i started thinking about it and decided that i should.. umm.. talk in a more islamic way..

    so usually when sum1 says "thank you" i say "you're welcome"
    and when people would say "JazakAllah Khair" i would just have this wierd feeling that i should say somthing but wouldn't know what to say..
    so i asked people, and i've been told that the proper responses are "BaarakAllah feek" or "wa iyyak"..

    but then google showed me this


    Some people always say "Ameen, wa iyyaak" (which means "Ameen, and to you also") after someone supplicates, "Jazak Allahu khayran" (which means "may Allaah reward you with good"). Is it is an innovation to reply with this phrase all the time?

    ANSWER by Shaykh Muhammad 'Umar Baazmool, instructor at Umm Al-Quraa University in Makkah

    There are many narrations from the Companions and from the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam), and there are narrations describing the actions of the people of knowledge. In these narrations, it is said to them, "Jazaak Allaahu khayran," there is no mention that they used to reply specifically with "Ameen, wa iyyaakum."

    Due to this, my position on a person clinging to this phrase, "Ameen, wa iyyaakum," after any supplication, not just "Jazak Allahu khayran," he has fallen into an innovation that has been added (to the Religion).

    So in these kinds of circumstances, Muslims can use this phrase sometimes, and abandon it sometimes, but they must not cling to it as if it is an established Sunnah of the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam), and Allaah knows best.
