The Presidential debate in the US took place last night between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Given the nature of the debate, and how much everyone across the world loves being involved in US politics, there was bound to be a lot of discussion around the events that took place. Most people were possibly expecting Trump to make a fool out of himself defending his tax returns or something along those lines. What no one could ever have predicted was that Biden apparently has some great Muslim friends because he really used the word Insha Allah (Arabic for ‘God willing’) on the live debate.

The whole internet is just shaken by this latest update. And this surprise comes after 8 months of just having the wildest year to ever have happened.

Here come the reactions

This Twitter user best describes just how unexpected it was.

People have had so many thoughts.

In case you need to hear it, here it is. See if you can catch it because if we’re being honest, his pronunciation is very white.

His use of the word has left a lot of people very confused.

The best part is that he didn’t even use it in the literal sense. He clearly knew enough about the global Muslim community’s absolute favorite word to use it in the most sarcastic way possible.

His use of the word was so good that Biden has actually become a meme.

Some peeps criticized him for it

But as is the case with Twitter debates, there has to be some sort of conflict. In this case, it comes in the form of many people believing that Biden saying Insha Allah was in fact not entertaining at all.

Some even called it out for being a PR tool that does nothing for an actual understanding and inclusion of Muslim communities.

This isn’t a debate we see going away anytime soon. The infamous Biden InshaAllah seems like it’s here to stay.

But now for the final question? Did you hear ‘Insha Allah’, ‘Enchilada’  or ‘In July’? Joe Biden has certainly become the conversation right now.



  1. By Birth Joe Biden is Muslim. Using InSha’ Allah is no surprise! His Parents converted him to Christianity. Catholic Christians are more Close to Islam. May almighty Allah revert him back to Islam.
