I need to know what 'lillah' means on it's own in arabic. But not when combined with other words as in alhumdulillah. I think it's something to do with charity/zakaat.

Thanks

I always thought it meant 'charity'. Guess I was wrong.

Maybe cos I heard it in this context:

'Lillah for the mosque.' :p

They say "lillah" when they're asking you to give charity. I hear "Give charity fi sabilillah" all the time. That pretty much means to give charity for the sake of allah.

Tnx for your input everyone.

Zak:the prefix " li " means FOR...
Lillah = for Allah
Tnx Zak bro. I understand now (lillah means donations given to non-muslims for the sake of Allah).
