As-Salaam Ullaahi ‘Alaikum,
Peace of Allaah be upon you!
Dear Urdu speaking and writing community Brothers and Sisters,
We should understand & write the following Urdu-Arabic linked words in the given way after each big number in the following:-
If you’re unable to understand or don’t believe this research for the awareness of people then you can ask about it and can confirm from Urdu and Arabic languages’ People of Knowledge or else can consult the ‘Ulamaa (Scholars) of Deen Al-Islaam about this that whether the following given ways are the correct ones for writing in Urdu language or Arabic language or not!?
Here, only awareness of people is intended from the material provided with the best possible authentication of the information below, nothing else or more.
1⃣ السلام عليكم :
You can even ask & learn this from an Urdu teacher which we once also did from a senior and experienced teacher of Urdu subject about which he said that it is an earlier practice of people which is wrong i.e. to write as
because it is pronounced as As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum and many didn’t take care of that it is an Arabic word meaning in Urdu translation as “Aap Par Salaamti Ho” (written here in Roman Urdu) which clearly tells us that it is not an Urdu word originally, so it should be written as we stated above. It is pronounced as As-Salaamu because there is ‘Shadd’ on ‘Seen’ and ‘Laam’ here is silent or gets ‘dropped‘ like other Arabic words while pronouncing, but not in writing.
Another drawback which we got to think is that one who understand only Arabic could read it as “Islaam ‘Alaikum” which it is not.
2⃣ إن شاء اللّٰه :
In Urdu, we write it as to keep the first two words together for short use which has developed a permanent way or habit of writing it together between people, but AGAIN here is the thing that we should understand that no doubt it is an Arabic word which means something in Arabic and is not from Urdu origin and has been used in Urdu language for the translation of “Agar Allaah Nay Chaaha” (written in Roman Urdu), etc.
Writing in Arabic Insha’ Allaah in these two words or thinking of it as One Word is totally wrong.
It is because first of all, they are Three Words. Secondarily, in Arabic Inshaa’ or
means “To Create” which would be totally wrong if you write it with Allaah‘s name and make its meaning as ‘To Create Allaah‘ which is absurd and a wrong expression, and clearly against the intention of what a person says it for.
Furthermore, you can confirm this from the Noble Book of our Lord, Allaah in Al-Qur’aan Al-Hakeem in Surat Al-Baqarah (Verse: 70), Surah Yusuf (Verse: 99), Surat Al-Kahf (Verse: 69), Surat Al-Qasas (Verse: 27), Surat As-Saaffaat (Verse: 102) and Surat Al-Fath (Verse: 27).
Thus, from the above we also humbly recommend you to even write it in Roman Urdu as in the following examples and avoid any kind of shorts:
In Shaa Allaah
In Sha Allah.
We hope that this post shall help you and develop the understanding of the words with the differences of their meanings while written in different ways so that we should practice correct writing to avoid the wrong one and keep our words of sayings accurate, precise and safe. And May Allaah guide us all and make true Guidance easy for us all. Aameen.
