Love a coincidense

Doing a bit of Internet surfing and ran across this bit:

Muslims use the word “’Āmīn” [Amen] not only after reciting the first surah (Al Fatiha) of the Qur’an, but also when concluding a prayer or dua, with the same meaning as in Christianity. The Islamic use of the word is the same as the Jewish use of the word.

My nickname is “Hal” and my last name is “Amens”

If you read the following in Roman letters it says “Hal” and in Arabic it is Āmīn [Amen – what is the plural version of this in Arabic?]
hal-amens
