The phrase “Allahu Akbar” is commonly used by Muslims to remind themselves of God’s vastness and power. It literally means “God is greater” or “God is the greatest.” Throughout their day and in prayer especially, Muslims use this term to remind themselves that God is greater than the beauty and ugliness of this world.

Unfortunately, some Muslim extremists employ this phrase before performing acts of terror, leading many to associate “Allahu Akbar” with violence and destruction. This video poem, however, explains the phrase’s true meaning for the vast majority of Islam’s 1.6 billion followers, and how they use it in their daily lives.
