  1. Takbir

    The Takbīr or Tekbir is the Arabic term for the phrase Allāhu Akbar. The phrase literally means "God is greater"; it is usually translated "God is [the] Greatest," or "God is Great". It is a common Islamic Arabic expression. It is used in various contexts by Muslims: in formal prayer, as an informal expression of faith, in times of distress, to express celebration or victory, and to express resolute determination or defiance. The form Allāhu is the nominative of Allah "God". The form akbar is the elative of the adjective kabīr "great", from the root k-b-r. As used in the takbir it is usually translated as "greatest", but some authors prefer "greater". The term takbīr itself is the stem II verbal noun of the triliteral root k-b-r "great".
