I have had the great privilege, (since Aug 2010), of presenting talks on the weekly Radio Program
‘Culture of Islam’
Every Friday 8 to 8.30 pm, Radio Sri Lanka - FM 97.4
Since these are Radio Talks, I refer
to, or address the audience as ‘listeners’
I am well aware that the audience to these talks would consist of people belonging to a variety of faiths. So as to make people of all faiths feel included, I very often use words and names that arecommon to all religions.4.
For these reasons, I use the name GOD, as well as Abraham, Moses, Jesus etc as well as thenames Allah, Ibrahim (Alaihis Salaam), Moosa (Alaihis Salaam), Easa (Alaihis Salaam) etc5.
Muslims by habit usually say ‘Sallallahu Alaihiwasallam’, when th
e name of Prophet Muhammad
is mentioned, and ‘Alaihis Salaam' when the name of a Prophet is mentioned. However, in these
series of talks I have reduced the use of these prayers & sayings to the bare minimum.6.
Muslims, also by habit, use a number of Arabic prayers or sayings, such as Alhamdulillah, InshaAllah and so on. Again, I have reduced the use of these prayers or sayings to the bare minimum.7.
Sometimes I have to write Arabic words in the English script.I have devised my own way of writing Arabic in English, as follows;
