Can someone please translate this into English for me?

  • Very badly written by the way. The second laam is much too short. – aasheq Jan 28 '15 at 14:36

It means " with name of Allah the most beneficent, the most merciful "

You should use this phrase when you start any activity, work or anything

  • Thank you! So for a student, it would make sense to write this on all of their papers they turn in to their professor? – Curious Jan 30 '14 at 13:33
  • @Curious - most people just say it silently to themselves but it looks like this particular student wrote it out. – Ansari Jan 30 '14 at 15:04
  • @Curious Depends on the university policy and the professor's leniency. – Bleeding Fingers Jan 30 '14 at 15:19
  • @Curious - I know many students who do that. – System Down Jan 30 '14 at 15:32
  • @Curious Not particularly. Students usually do it in hopes that Allah will make them pass, a form of shirk. It is required to be said but not written. Many scholars say that those who write it on school papers are sinners since it doesn't get the respect it earns. – user12537 Sep 6 '15 at 20:26

Qalima-e-tauheed I bear witness that no one is worthy of worship expect allah and i bear witness that muhammad sallahualehi-wa-sallam is him slave and messanger

    The Answer is incorrect, as the sentence in the question is not the kalima but البسملة (the Basmala) – مجاهد Jan 28 '15 at 21:46
