I have been told that it is haram to write Arabic in English like e.g. "Assalam O Alaikum" and "JazakALLAH".
So is transliterating Arabic in English actually haram?

Based on what I researched, I did not find any related matter regarding that. And it seems (canonically & logically) it is not considered as a haram practice to transliterate Arabic in English in common situations. Because the intention of the person(s) who is transliterating the texts in English, could be solely made the reader understand concerning the pronunciation of the phrases.
Then it couldn’t be considered as a haram deed. Besides, we must pay attention that there are many people of the world who don’t know Arabic language, then we cannot say that they should not know it because they don’t know Arabic language! Consequently there must be a method which could help them understanding the pronunciation of Arabic words and sentences.
Of course it could be surveyed from another aspect. In truth, it could be said that it could be haram in case using in negative or haram ways. Otherwise generally it is counted as Mubah (permissible) deeds.
