There are moments during a good table tennis game when you're in need of a nice curse :twisted:

So what's your favourite one in arabic (and what does it mean and how is it pronounced)?

I grew up in Indonesia, and I am familiar with the prayer chant, which was sung in Arabic, even though I do not understand the meaning. It's very silent here in the morning, I miss my hometown.
:(

'klaoui.
in arabic (moroccan arabic i mean), you write it :
Code:
قلاوي


Th " 'k " is a gutural K.

Its meaning is: a very poetic way to say testicle in arabic :wink:

see you soon

Salam


alaykoum salam,

the poet say : "To Pray Is To Remember God, But We Remember Only What We Forgot !"

Al-azan, "call to prayer" (chanted by al-mu’azin, "the prayer caller"):

Ahl-LAH-hoo AHK-bahr God is Great!

Ashadoo AL-la ee-LA-ha IL-la-ahl-LAH I witness that there is no god but God.

Ashadoo AN-nah Muhammadan Rasoolulah I witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God

Hi AH-lah ahs-sah-LAH Come to prayer!

Hi AH-lah al-fah-LAH Come to prosperity!

Ahl-LAH-hoo AHK-bahr God is great.

La ee-LAH-ha IL-la-ahl-LAH There is no God but God.

(all phrases are repeated once except the last two)

take care of you,

abidou

Thanks, I appreciate that, although I am not Muslim, but it surely reminds me of my hometown.
