Q751: Spelling of inshallah?

Question

salamualaikum moulana saheb
it may not be a big masaail but i was just wondering how you would or what the right way of spelling in sha Allah because i heard that if you put all 3 words together it stands for ‘the establishment of Allah’ naoozubillah i also typed it in google translate and it said the exact samething but if we seperate them into 3 different words it is the right way but im not 100% sure so can you please put my mind at ease
and last thing is i’m making intentions to join darul ul uloom bury after eid in sha Allah and enroll for alim course but i found out i would have to take an entry exam to determine if i can join or not if this is right can you tell me what kind of exam it is on islamic knowledge or worldly knowledge e.g maths, english and how long would have to wait to sit the test after i have booked it and if i do how long would it take for me to get my results after the exam because i want to try and get in as soon as i can
jazakallah maulana and please can you dua for me so i can pass my test and get in to darul ul uloom and for my future
salam warahmatullah

Answer

Walaikumussalam w w

The intended meaning of inshallah is ‘if Allah wills’. This will not change by spellings. This sentence is very commonly used, so much so that even many non Muslims use it too. Therefore, as long as the pronunciation is correct, there would be flexibility in spellings.

Darul Uloom has started. The tests are quite simple; Just to check that the applicant knows English and maths and that he will be able to adapt the school environment.

May Allah bless you with the best of both worlds.
