السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

This section is totally barren and has no topics. That is why I decided to list family relationships in Arabic.


Father: اَبٌ

Brother: اَخٌ

Sister: اُخْتٌ

Paternal Aunt: عَمَّةٌ

Paternal Uncle: عَمٌّ

Maternal Aunt: خَالَةٌ

Maternal Uncle: خَالٌ

Son: اِبْنٌ

Daughter: اِبْنَةٌ

Brother's son (nephew): اِبْنُ الْاَخِ

Brother's daughter (niece): اِبْنَةُ الْاَخِ

Sister's son (nephew): اِبْنُ الْاُخْتِ

Sister's daughter (niece): اِبْنَةُ الْاُخْتِ

Rule to remember: For many female relatives like maternal aunt, paternal aunt, daughter and more, the word remains the same as the masculine version of it except that a round taa (ة) is added after the word. For example: Son is اِبْنٌ, so daughter is اِبْنَةٌ.

I wonder where the term اَللّٰهُمَّ came from. It has been translated as O Allah so for a long time I thought adding a meem after a name in arabic is equivalent to O (the name) but thats not the case. It only works with Allah's name. Like you cant say محمدم to mean O Muhammad. That doesnt make sense. I read some theories about the origin of اَللّٰهُمَّ but no one knows for sure. One of the theories was that اَللّٰهُمَّ came from the Hebrew Elohim. Elohim is the plural (of majesty) of Eloh. And the plural form of ه (he), which is the last letter of Allah, would be هم (they) in Arabic. This leads me to think that اَللّٰهُمَّ can be from Elohim since they are both plural. But, if Allah was plural (as in respect) it would be اَللّٰهُمْ without a tashdeed and fatha on the meem but a jaazm instead. But language borrowing (Hebrew Elohim to Arabic Allahum) does not always have to make sense, which can explain why it is اَللّٰهُمَّ (with tashdeed and fatha on meem) and not اَللّٰهُمْ (jaazm on meem). But this is just a theory and the origins of this word remain unknown. Maybe you guys can explain where اَللّٰهُمَّ came from? Maybe the admin can add this to his website to give further proof that Elohim and Allah are the same God since اَللّٰهُمَّ has been used a few times in the Quran which means that (assuming my theory is correct) Allah recognized the plural of Eloh in the Bible thats why He used it a few times in the Quran?

I have a question. Allah cannot be in a place because He is not limited by creation. I have some Verses to discuss in this case. Verse 4:158 of the Quran says that Allah raised Jesus to Himself. If Allah doesn't live in the Heavens (not a bald old man in Heaven), then what does this verse mean? It means he was raised to heaven but Allah is not living in Heaven? Also another verse 40:37 says that Firaun wanted to see Allah so he told Haman to build a tower up to Heaven? But Allah is not in Heaven?
