    Hamd

    Noun from the Arabic root hmd, “to praise.” The word is often used with the name Allah, hence “al-hamdu lil-Allah,” often abbreviated as hamdila or hamdala, meaning “praise God” or “thanks to God.” The phrase appears at the beginning of the first surah in the Quran. Thus a Muslim will utter it at least twice during any of the five daily prayers. The name Muhammad is derived from the same root as hamd.
