The Phrase "Allah Akbar"

The phrase "Allāhu Akbar" (God is Great) is recited by Muslims in numerous situations. For example, when they are happy or wish to express approval, when an animal is slaughtered in a halaal fashion, when they want to praise a speaker, during battles, and even times of extreme stress or euphoria.

Who knew there were penalties for saying it wrong?
