Arabic phrase invoked during presidential debate parallels James 4 and offers a window into how Christians and Muslims view God’s will.

Unnoticed by many during the contentious first presidential debate, Joe Biden introduced a new Arabic word into the American lexicon.

Inshallah.

Technically, it is three words, in both Arabic and English: “in sha’ Allah,” or “if God wills.”

However, “If you take it literally, you won’t get the intent,” said Ramez Atallah, general director of the Bible Society of Egypt.

“It can also mean, ‘It will never happen,’ and this is probably what Biden meant.”

Asked by the debate moderator about his tax returns, President Donald Trump answered, “You’ll get to see it.”
