B for Bismillah

'Bismillah' is the first utterance in Arabic for anything we wish to do. Everything starts with 'Bismillah' (in the name of Allah; dengan nama Allah).

Why do Muslims say 'Bismillah' before they do anything? Why do they utter 'Bismillah' and then slaughter an animal according to Islamic rites? How can food prepared from an animal be labelled as halal when 'Bismillah' was not uttered before slaughter? What does 'Bismillah' mean? Why is 'Bismillah' important? When must be say 'Bismillah' and when not to?

“The secret of the Quran is in Surah al-Fatihah (the opening chapter). The secret of Surah al-Fatihah is in the 'Bismillah', and the secret of the 'Bismillah' is in the letter B (ب or ba). I am the POINT beneath the ‘B’ (ب)!”
