Insah'Allah- ن شاء الله

God willing… If it is God’s will….

A beautiful expression I recently acquired, placing everything into the hands of God and out of one’s responsibility.

Beggars with hands extended are often given a nod and quick Insah’Allah.
Will you have bread later tonight or tomorrow, we implore at the boulangeria?- Insah’Allah, she answers.
After biking hours in the highlands, we are famished and stumble upon one of few restaurants in Tafraoute, inquiring if he will be open after the fast- Insah’Allah he smiles and retreats inside.

Would you like to look at my rugs, rugs from Berbers, camel wool, nice for your home, just look- Insah’Allah I smile and walk away.

    You were lucky it was not “God willing (Inshallah) Tomorrow (Bokra)…

    or (. .Well, never mind (Malesh). . .”)
