▪ Islamic prayer
also called  Tasmiyah,  

      in Islām, the formula-prayer: biʾsm Allāh ar-raḥmān ar-raḥīm, “in the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate.” This invocation, which was first introduced by the Qurʾān, appears at the beginning of every Qurʾānic sūrah (chapter) except the ninth (which presents a unique textual problem) and is frequently recited by Muslims to elicit God's blessings on their important actions. The basmalah also introduces all formal documents and transactions and must always preface actions that are legally required or recommended. An abbreviated version precedes certain daily rituals, such as meals. Magicians often use the basmalah in amulets, claiming that the prayer was inscribed in Adam's side, Gabriel's wing, Solomon's seal, and Jesus Christ's tongue.
