Can I get an AMEN!?

How many religions say "amen" - or a similar sounding word - as a part of prayer/worship?

I thought I heard something like "Amen" at a muslim prayer, but I hesitated about asking just in case I misheard (or just in case it gets taken in a wrong way)..
Anyone got a clue?

Jews utter "Amen" as the conclusion to every single Hebrew blessing (over bread, wine, candle lighting, etc...).

I have been told Amen means "so be it." But I have never heard other religions using a similar word or words.
