This word did not exist in the Arabic language until it was - as usual - plagiarised by Muhammad from the Hebrew language during his stay inMadinaamong its'Jews'.
It does not appear anywhere in the Quran but is mentioned and described in Ahadith.
In Hebrew it means So Be It. It occurs 14 times in the Torah as a formula of confirmation or agreement as commanded by Moses.
Deuteronomy 27:15 " Cursed be the man who makes any engraved or molten image, an abomination to the Lord, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and sets it up in secret. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen"
During the period of the Second Temple,Amen served as a response to benedictions and prayers recited outside the Temple.
By pronouncing Amen, the listener associates himself with what has been uttered; he makes it his own and is ready to conform to it. It became customary, later on, to conclude every good wish with Amen.

Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 8.411Narrated byAbu Huraira

Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 828Narrated byAbuHurayrah
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) while teaching us (the principles of faith), said: Do not try to go ahead of the Imam, recite takbir when he recites it, and when he says: " Nor of those who err," you should say Amin, bow down when he bows down, and when he says: "Allah listens to him who praises Him," say: "O Allah, our Lord, to Thee be the praise."
Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 932Narrated byWa'il ibn Hujr
When the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) recited the verse "Nor of those who go astray" (Surah al-Fatihah, verse 7), he would say Amin; and raised his voice (while uttering this word).
Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 938Narrated byAbuZuhayr an-Numayri
AbuMisbah al-Muqra'i said: We used to sit in the company of AbuZuhayr an-Numayri. He was a companion of the Prophet (peace be upon him), and he used to narrate good traditions. Once a man from among us made a supplication. He said: End it with the utterance of Amin, for
'Amin' is like a seal on the book. AbuZuhayr said: I shall tell you about that. We went out with the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) one night and came upon a man who made supplication with persistence. The Prophet (peace be upon him) waited to hear him. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: He will have done something which guarantees (Paradise for him) if he puts a seal to it. One of the people asked: What should he use as a seal? He replied: Amin, for if he ends it with Amin, he will do something which guarantees (Paradise for him). Then the man who questioned the Prophet (peace be upon him) came to the man who was supplicating, and said to him: So-and-so, end it with Amin and receive the good news. These are the words of Mahmud.
