The words insha'Allah and masha'Allah have a special place in the glorification of Allah

What is the special secret in the recitation of the words “insha’Allah” and “masha’Allah”?

Why is it important to use the words “insha’Allah” and “masha’Allah” whenever necessary?

What important statement has Mr. Adnan Oktar made on this subject?

Our Lord is infinitely merciful. He bestows matchless blessings on people throughout their lives. In addition to physical blessings, He also bestows spiritual ones: He forgives their mistakes, accepts their repentance, protects them, conceals their sins, increases their happiness and leads them to the true path. Allah ensures that all things are favorable for believers, and He supports them in various ways. The terms insha’Allah and masha’Allah that appear in the Qur’an possess very broad and deep significance, and much mercy.

Insha’Allah and Masha’Allah Are Two Very Important Terms That Repeat the Name of Allah and Prevent Polytheism

True faith and unalloyed love involve absolute submission to Allah. One is careful not to make even a momentary error. One knows that polytheism may arise the moment one feels any loss of trust in Allah or seeks any helpers other than Allah. For that reason, a believer with unsullied faith turns to and trusts in Allah alone because he knows that Allah reigns over all things, that His power is unfettered, and that not a single leaf can fall unless He so wills it. He is therefore aware that the only place to seek help for any reason is Allah. He has adopted Him as his guide. He feels no need to rely on anyone other than Allah, or to seek help from anyone else or any other power because he knows that everything that happens in the world does so by Allah’s leave. So someone with true faith acts with that awareness at every moment of his life. Therefore, by the word “insha’Allah” he is reiterating that everything happens by Allah’s leave and is created by Him in destiny. If someone says that he will do something and forgets to say that Allah will create it, then that is polytheism. But if he says, ‘insha’Allah’, ‘I will do it by Allah’s will, through Allah’s creating it in destiny,’ then, by Allah’s will, he avoids polytheism and becoming someone who ascribes equals to Allah.

On the other hand, if a person says, “How lovely” when he sees beauty, then he is ascribing a divine significance to it. But if he uses the term “Masha’Allah,” meaning “How finely Allah has created,” then he is protected against polytheism. For that reason, “insha’Allah” and “masha’Allah” are two very important terms that eliminate polytheism in the End Times and that repeat the name of Allah. All-Wise Allah reveals in Surat al-Kahf in the Qur’an that these two expressions are the key to protection against polytheism and praising Him:

“Never say about anything, ‘I am doing that tomorrow,’ without adding ‘If Allah wills.’ Remember your Lord when you forget, and say, ‘Hopefully my Lord will guide me to something closer to right guidance than this’.” (Surat al-Kahf, 23-24)

He is, however, Allah, my Lord, and I will not associate anyone with my Lord. Why, when you entered your garden, did you not say, “It is as Allah wills, there is no strength but in Allah”? Though you see me with less wealth and children than you possess,” (Surat al-Kahf, 38-39)

Mr. Adnan Oktar describes how the repetition of “Insha’Allah” and “Masha’Allah” eliminates polytheism:

ADNAN OKTAR: Allah tells us to say “insha’Allah” when starting any task or in reference to anything happening tomorrow. In other words, “by Allah’s leave,” “by Allah’s will.” This is a recitation of the name of Allah. Like “La ilaha illAllah,” “subhanAllah,” “Allah-u akbar” or “alhamdulillah.” It is a recitation of the name of Allah. It is therefore propitious. Those who make much use of the words “insha’Allah’” and “masha’Allah” will rule the world in the End Times. That is a feature of the followers of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh); they are secret words. It is also a feature of the People of the Cave. A feature of the End Times. When we see something, we say, “Masha’Allah, how well Allah has created.” We are thus protected against polytheism. “Insha’Allah”means by Allah’s leave, by Allah’s creation, with Allah’s creation in destiny. Both are anti-polytheistic terms. They are blows struck against polytheism. Two words that demolish polytheism. Allah says in Surat an-Nur that those who do not ascribe equals to Him will rule the world. Now if I say, “I will do something tomorrow,” if I say that in forgetfulness of Allah, if I forget that Allah will create it, that is polytheism. But if you say, “insha’Allah”, “by Allah’s leave,” “by Allah’s creation in destiny,” then you are protected from polytheism. You have not become a polytheist. And if you say, “How lovely that is,” then you are ascribing divine nature to it. But if you say, “How finely Allah has created that,” you are protected against polytheism. “Insha’Allah” and “masha’Allah” are two recitations of the name of Allah that will demolish polytheism in the End Times. They smash the idols, insha’Allah... (17 June 2010 Kahramanmaraş Aksu TV and Kaçkar TV)

The Terms Insha’Allah and Masha’Allah Are the Keys to the Global Reign of Islam

The global reign of the moral values of the Qur’an is glad tidings foretold in the Qur’an, revealed in the hadiths of our Prophet (saas) and discussed in the works of Islamic scholars. Our Prophet (saas) has reported that Allah will bring about the global reign of Islam using Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) as His instrument. The coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) in the End Times, by Allah’s leave, and bringing about the global reign of the moral values of the Qur’an is foretold thus in the hadiths of our Prophet (saas): 


In another hadith, our Prophet (saas) reveals that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and his followers will make much use of the terms insha’Allah and masha’Allah:


Our Prophet (saas) notes that those who use these two terms have a deep love of Allah and a pure faith:



Therefore, since Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and his followers know that all they do happens by Allah’s leave they always use the term “insha’Allah.” They know that the success of what they do lies with Allah. They therefore praise Allah and say, “masha’Allah.” They frequently recite these two expressions, since they are people who have profound faith and properly know the names of Allah and fear Him. By Allah’s leave, the global reign of Islam will come about through this behavior far removed from polytheism and their passionate devotion to Allah.

Mr. Adnan Oktar describes how the recitation of insha’Allah and masha’Allah is a sign of the followers of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and that those who make that recitation will rule the world:

ADNAN OKTAR: The word masha’Allah refers to 1987 without the gemination mark or 2016 with it. The word insha’Allah refers to 1997 without the gemination mark [the repeating of “a'A” in “insha'Allah and masha'Allah] or 2027 with it; it refers to global dominion. The more one says insha’Allah and masha’Allah, the more that global reign progresses. There are a specific number of repetitions of insha’Allah and masha’Allah for this. When that number is reached, that reign will have come about, insha’Allah. So our brothers must make wide use of insha’Allah and masha’Allah. Our Prophet (saas) says, “A person says insha’Allah every time he speaks out of perfection of faith.” “Saying insha’Allah comes from perfect faith,” he says. “There is no more virtuous obedience for people than to say insha’Allah,” our Prophet (saas) says. Insha’Allah and masha’Allah mean step by step progress toward Islam and Islamic Union. Whenever you say it, you take another step. But there is a limit referred to by Allah, and once that limit is reached, that is it, insha’Allah. (20 March 2011 Kanal Avrupa and Çay TV)

ADNAN OKTAR:  Insha’Allah and masha’Allah are like music to my ears. To hear a person saying insha’Allah and masha’Allah is so nice. Those who recite them will rule the world, insha’Allah. Those who recite them in abundance will rule the world. Insha’Allah and masha’Allah are a mark of the followers of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). They are their sign, their seal. And since we are also followers of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), insha’Allah and masha’Allah are a sign for us, too. (20 August 2011 A9 TV)

The Two Worthy Individuals of the End Times, the prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) Will Use Insha’Allah and Masha’Allah Very Much.

The first letter of the name of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) [Isa] refers to the “i” of insha’Allah, and the “m” of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) refers to masha’Allah. This is without doubt an immaculate secret created by Almighty Allah. Because these worthy people will be instrumental in the global reign of Islam in the End Times, and in “insha’Allah” and “masha’Allah” being repeated by everyone.

One of these worthy individuals, the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will frequently recite the word “insha’Allah” in the miracles he performs. This is revealed as follows in the Qur’an:

as a Messenger to the tribe of Israel, saying: ‘I have brought you a Sign from your Lord. I will create the shape of a bird out of clay for you and then breathe into it and it will be a bird by Allah’s permission. I will heal the blind and the leper, and bring the dead to life, by Allah’s permission. I will tell you what you eat and what you store up in your homes. There is a Sign for you in that if you are believers.” (Surah Al ‘Imran, 49)

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will praise the name of Allah in the face of everything beautiful that he sees, all of which are manifestations of Allah, and will frequently repeat the word “masha’Allah” out of his deep faith in and love of Almighty Allah.

Mr. Adnan Oktar describes the secret behind the repetition of “insha’Allah” and “masha’Allah”:

ADNAN OKTAR: Insha’Allah and masha’Allah prevent disaster striking that region. One. They are the key to the global reign, two; the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) used to say, “insha’Allah” and he resurrected the dead. “Insha’Allah,” he would say, and he placed his hand on the faces of the sick and cured them. “Insha’Allah,” he said, the blind were able to see again. And Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Masha’Allah is the “m” of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh) name begins with the “m” of masha’Allah. And the name of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) [Isa] begins with the “i” of insha’Allah. Insha’Allah and masha’Allah, these two will bring about global dominion, insha’Allah. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) says “masha’Allah” whenever beauty is made real. He says, “masha’Allah” whenever he sees beauty. He sees a manifestation of Allah and says “masha’Allah.” The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) also says it, but it refers to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Insha’Allah and masha’Allah are the keys to the global reign. Those vibrations, insha’Allah and masha’Allah, will bring about global reign. Allah makes them His instrument. No disaster strikes. That is the wisdom. (10 November 2011, A9 TV)

Masha’Allah is recited to express the sublime artistry and might Allah. That is why believers frequently praise our Lord by repeating the word "masha’Allah." Using this term and feeling it sincerely in one’s heart reminds people around that Allah is the Lord of all. And it is definitely of great benefit to people to remind them that it is Allah Who does all things because human beings have a predisposition to forget their own weakness and fall into heedlessness.

There Is Great Health for Muslims in the Word “Insha’Allah”

Destiny is Allah’s knowing everything that has happened and will happen. A great many people wonder how Allah can know what has not yet happened and fail to grasp the idea of destiny. But things that have not yet happened have only not yet happened for us. Allah is unfettered by time and space, and it is He Who created time and space in the first place. For that reason, past, present and future are all the same for Allah, and are all already over and done with. In the same way that we can easily see the beginning, middle and end of a list, so Allah knows all of time, to which we are subject, from beginning to end as a single moment. Human beings simply experience these events when the time comes and witness the destiny created for them by Allah. To maintain anything else, to claim that one’s plans for the future will certainly come about, means pride before Allah. But remembering that everything is under the control of Allah by using the word “insha’Allah” is most healthy in terms of knowing that things only happen if Allah so wishes.

Surat al-Kahf, in Which the Words “Insha’Allah” and “Masha’Allah” Appear Points to the Global Reign of Islamic Moral Values:

Al-Kahf is a Surah that point to the global reign and the way of the Mahdi because multiplying the number of the Surah by the number of verses in it gives the figure 1980:

Surat al-Kahf consists of 110 verses and is the 18th Surah.


And 1980 is the date of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). These two terms appearing in a single verse in Surat al-Kahf point to the global reign that Allah conceals behind “insha’Allah” and “masha’Allah.” (Allah alone knows the truth). 

The word masha’Allah gives the dates 1987 without the gemination mark, and 2016 with the gemination mark.

The word insha’Allah gives that dates 1997 without the gemination mark and 2027 with the gemination mark. Both dates refer to the global reign of Islamic moral values.
