Salaams,

Marhaba is hello.

Ma Salama is goodbye.

Ya Illahee -- My God, but not in the careless way the translation indicates, but a loving, cherishing way.

See y'all later!

Al-Hamdulillah (From a Married Muslimah) La Howla Wa La Quwata Illa BiLLah - There is no Effort or Power except with Allah's Will.

Sidi/Khulti - (my)Mister/(my)Sister. For informal use referring to others
and will be used for sentence construction below.

Yulla - let's go, right on, let's get a move on, alright!, etc..."Yulla Sidi"
"Let's go, Mister!"

Haqq - (the q represented the deep throat k) truth, fact, and The Truth
(of
God) "qool il haqq, khulti" would then be "Tell the truth, sister"

Safi - clear. One's heart (Qlb) could be 'safi' or clear. Also used to say
"Got it! I Understand! Safi!"

La - no. Basic and helpful to both say 'no' and commonly used to make
anything negative.

Shoof - look, look! see! an attention getter the way we use "Hey! Over
here!"   example "Yulla Sidi, nshoof" - "Let's go Mister, and see"

Baraka - blessing, boon, including tips of money or even food. Holy
items are said to be charged with baraka. Also, used to mean "Enough!"
if you feel full of
food or feel like you have enough of something.

Attay - to give, direct one to. Used with endings "ni"(me) "na"(us)
"hoom"(them) Therefore, "attay-ni" will be, "Give me..", etc. Example
would be "Attay-ni baraka"

THalla farasikoom,

Jamal Morelli

p.s I have started a small (extremely playful and informal) introduction
to Moroccan Arabic (link below in signature); most of the common words
are shared but there are
some that will be odd to the MSA student.

If you have iTunes, you can find the Moroccan Arabic lessons (for free) if
you just search under "Jamal Morelli"...

Hope that it helps a bit. I'll continue to post here as well...

“Hayk wullah mahayk?”

 

 

Translated

 

“Are you lying or telling the truth?”  (Putting it less strongly, or accusingly, “is that truth or fiction?”)  I am not referring in this case to the contents of any of the above posts  and if my understanding of this phrase is wrong, all fault lies with one of my mischievous Arab friends who once introduced me to conversational Arabic (and smoking nargila, or sheesha, but not hashish).
