is the direct translation somthing like: peace with you?
Thanks. I've heard the word Bismillah (I probably mispelled). Deas it mean - in the name of god?
yes... بسم الله (by/in the name of God).
and just to note بسم is originally باسم (in name, by name). But only in this instance when الله comes after, the word is shortened by deleting the Alif and becomes بسم.
Peace be with you
