    I don't know how to start. I'm really worried. It's just that I saw a video on the Daily Mail website where an ISIS convoy was shouting that.

    Haha omg
    I know ISIS and all these groups say that but it's just like terrorists say "Hello"

    It means God is great - a positive thing rather than negative

    People say it for all kind of stupid reasons, well mostly when they are mocking terrorists, I highly doubt your bf is a terrorist working with ISIS or the like.

    Saw someone say it can have positive meanings, maybe that is the case, I doubt you have anything to worry about in any case

    It translates to "God is great". Could be a terrorist, could have just prayed for a favourable roll on Supercasino and got lucky.

    it is just praising God and saying how great He is. ISIS just ruins everything for everyone and are selfish little *****!

    I've screamed it before in mocking terrorism or making jokes about terrorism.

    I think in its original meaning its just like a Christian person saying "thank God" though.
