In Arabic mashallah: ما شاء الله TO protect from Devil AND JEALOUSY. In Islam, we believed it all thing from to Allah. When Allah gave Much to any person, we say Masha allah . For example, if you just had a new car  you would say ‘Masha Allah ’ to show gratitude the gift of  Allah has bestowed and to avoid risking the baby’s future health. 


These two words (MASHALLAH OR INSHALLAH) These are Two words  but have different meaning , which is why it’s easy to get confused between the Mashallah and Inshallah. The difference inshallah is said to wish for a future :

  • Mashallah = Allah has willed
  • Inshallah = if Allah wills it.
  • Example of Inshallah: I hope for getting  the new Car, inshallah.
  • Example of Mashallah:  Mashallah, what a beautiful baby.
