Question

Es selamu alejkum May Allah
reward you for your work. I
want you to ask you, what does
the word ''Wallahi Billahi
Tallahi'' means? Thank you for
the answer.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.

The three words have different
meanings depending on their context in
speech. They may be said and mean
swearing by Allah, because the Arabic
letters Waaw, Baa’a, Taa’a are used for
swearing, so if a person says Wallaahi,
Billaahi, or Tallaahi, it means that he
swears by Allah or makes an oath by
Allah.
On the other hand, if the word “Allah”
is preceded by the letter Waaw or
Baa’a, then it could mean other than
swearing. For example, if someone says
“Ista’antu Billaah”, i.e. I seek help from
Allah, then the letter Baa’a here is for
seeking help.

Likewise, the letter Waaw could mean
Ist’inaaf (i.e. to indicate beginning a
new sentence to make a different point);
like the saying of Allah "Wallaahu
Rau’oofun Bil Ibaad" (which means):
{ And Allah is Kind to [His] servants.}
[Quran 2:207]

As regards the letter Taa’a, if it is added
to the word "Allah", it only means
swearing by Allah.
Allah Knows best.
