jazak allah khair

جزاك الله خيرًا Saying Jazak Allah khair instead of Thank you.


Jazak Allah khair is what you say to someone who does you a favour.

What do you say to your Muslim Friend if she/he does you a favour?

Thank you in arabic : Jazakallah

Usama b. Zaid reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “If one is done a kindness and expresses to his benefactor a desire that God may give him a good reward, he has fully expressed his commendation. ”This is a sahih hadith in Tirmidhi sharif.

So When some one does good to us why not say جزاك الله خيرًا instead of Thank you? This prayer may be one of the reasons for his happiness in this world and the Hereafter and you may get a reward of reviving a Sunnah and making dua for your brother/sister.

جَزاكَ اللهُ خَـيْراً

quran class

jazak allahu khair meaning:

جَزاكَ اللهُ خَـيْراً Jazak Allah Khairan means”May Allah reward you with good.”

Grammar Rule of جَزاكَ اللهُ خَـيْراً:

جَزا “Jazaa/ جَزا “means: “to reward, recompense” 
كَ “K/ كَ “: is for attribution to a second person, meaning: “to you”
هُ“H هُ ” is used when attributing to a third person, as in: “JazaaHullaahu Kahiran ” (May Allaah reward him with good).
خَـيْراً  “Khairan خَـيْراً” is from the word “Khair” which means: “good”

This is asking Allaah for goodness in abundance for your brother/sister in Islam. The goodness which is from Allaah, without measure, which will bring him/her happiness in this world and in the Hereafter.
