When you say Inshallah, it means you will do your absolute best and unless there is some form of divine intervention that stops you. God wants you to do your best, not use the phrase as an excuse! Otherwise a meteor might fall on your head!

Quick comment for those trying to decide what's the right spelling of Inshallah in English.
1- when you write Arabic in English, it is only meant to be phonetic. Watch the video to hear how we pronounce it in our dialect.
2- Some say it should be In Sha Allah, if we were going with that logic, then looking at the current spelling it would be Insh Allah (since there is no double A to represent Insha, Allah), which has no meaning.
3- For arguments sake, let's say that it was Insha (Create) and Allah (God), since it is from the Arabic language, it is not read in the English way "Create God", Insha Allah would be translated to "God's Creation"
4- Islam is a religion where intention is critical and what God judges us on. I hope that it is clear what the intention is with this video :)

Remember, the ONLY correct way of writing it, is in ARABIC. Any other way of writing it, is just phonetic.
