Hi there,

I am from United States studying about Islamic Culture and I really would need your help to define what exactly BASMALAH is. Thank you.


Hello to you too. 

The basmalah is the Arabic name for the phrase: bismillahi-rrahmaani-rraheem, which in Arabic is: , and this means: In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.  There are some phrases in Arabic that have special names, and the basmalah is one of them.

You are most welcome
