Gk: amane (
In Jewish and Christian prayer, this is appended at the end of a prayer, asking God to bring to pass all that has been prayed earlier.
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "Say Amen' when the Imam says "Ghair-il- maghdubi 'alaihim wala-ddal-lin; not the path of those who earn Your Anger (such as Jews) nor of those who go astray (such as Christians); all the past sins of the person whose saying (of Amin) coincides with that of the angels, will be forgiven. (Sahih Bukhari 1.749. see also Sahih Bukhari 1.747, Sahih Bukhari 1.748, Sahih Bukhari 4.446)
