Jazak Allāh (Arabic: جزاك اللهُ‎) or Jazak Allahu Khayr (جزاك اللهُ خيراً) is a term used as an Islamic expression of gratitude meaning "May Allāh reward you [with] goodness." Allāh is the Arabic word for God.

Although the common Arabic word for thanks is shukran (شكرًا), jazāk allāhu khayran is often used by Muslims instead, in the belief that one cannot repay a person enough, and that Allâh is able to reward a person the best. Often the response to jazāk allāhu khayran is wa ʾiyyākum (وإياكم), which means "And to you". A more formal reply is "w-antum fa-jazākum allāhu khayran" (وَٱنْتُمْ فَجَزَاكُمُ اللَّهُ خَيْرًا) which means "And you too, may Allah reward you with goodness". [1]
