What are your favourite words in Arabic?
My favourite words in Arabic are:
- ‘Salam’ is one of the simplest but most powerful terms in the Arabic language. It means ‘peace’, and can be used to greet someone to convey respect and good intentions and to wish someone to live in peace.
- ‘ Amal’ which means hope. Hope helps us to be positive about everything and achieve the impossible. We cannot live without hope.
