I hope someone here can help me out with a couple of quick questions.  Is Mustafa an Arabic name?  Is the accent on the first syllable (MOOS-ta-fah), or the second (moo-STA-fah)?

Thanks abuayisha, but I've already read the Wikipedia article, which gives several pronunciations.  I was really hoping to hear from people either named Mustafa themselves or who know someone by that name.
 
My main question is: do most people accent the first syllable, or the second?

Hello Ron,

Please click on the speaker sign (bottom right corner) to listen to the pronunciation of Mustafa. It is an Arabic word (appears in the top left corner in the box):

http://translate.google.com/#ar|en|%D9%85%D9%8F%D8%B5%D9%92%D8%B7%D9%8E%D9%81%D9%8E

“u” in Mustafa is not pronounced as “oo.” It is pronounced as “u” in English word “put.”

I think Moostafah is right name.
