I found this decorative wooden sword at a Goodwill store today. It measures 33" long and is inlaid with n inscription. What does the inscription say?

Sorry, my Arabic is minimal.

I can ask for a beer a bathroom, and a hotel.

And I'm only gonna understand the answer if you point.

Looks like something that came from the estate of a deceased Shriner. Probably doesn't say "death to America the great Satan" or something like that.

In Allah we trust and put all others to the sword
Well according to google translate, that would be

في الله نثق ونضع كل الآخرين على السيف
You did see the question mark, didn't you. I had no clue as to anything it said.
You may have no clue, but I have even less of a clue.

I just used it to mock-threaten one of my cats. I told him that I'd chop off his infidel head if he craps on the floor again.

It fuses the words together...

"Victory from Allah and imminent conquest" - Surah 61:13
Thank you very much. It was odd to find something like that at a thrift store and I was curious what it said.
T'fadal ya'Ahi.

I liked the font, cool idea,
the artist seems was drawn to Far East, or at least that's how it appears,
except for 'Allah' every 2 words look more like a bridge between Arabic and Japanese.
