    (please remember that all material is based on/comes from http://areg.amaksoud.com/node/12. Insha'Allah may you benefit).

    To get the simple phrase "I am Muhammad", you must know this:

    The verb "To Be" (as in I am Muhammad, He is Ahad) "To Be" is almost always omitted from a sentence. So to say "I am Muhammad", you would say "I Muhammad" (while using the Arabic words).

    Similarily, "You are Maryam" = "You Maryam", "We are Muslims" = "We Muslims".

    English | Arabic | Pronunciation
    I | انا | Ana
    _______________________________________
    You (singular, masculine) | انتَ | Anta (the mark above the last letter [as Arabic is written right to left] is a vowel mark. More on that later)
    _______________________________________
    You (singular, feminine) | انتِ | Ante (the mark under the last letter is a vowel mark. More on that later)
    _______________________________________
    You (plural, any gender) | انتم | Antom
    _______________________________________
    He (singular)| هو | Huwa
    _______________________________________
    She (singular) | هي | Heeya
    _______________________________________
    They (plural, any gender) | هم | Hum
    _______________________________________
    We (plural, any gender)| نحنُ | Nahnu (note the mark above the last letter. A vowel. Also, remember the "h" sound is an h sound deep from the throat).

    Please note that these are the pronouns for present tense. Some of these change according to the tense (present, past, imperative).

    Remember when reading these that Arabic is read left to right.

    A very simple conversation using the words we have learned:

    Arabic | Pronunciation
    محمد:اهلا انتِ جين (the last word is a name, Jean. The first word is a name, Muhammad) | Muhammad: Ahlan, ante Jean?
    مريم:لا انا مريم (once again, the first word is a name, Maryam. The last word also says Maryam) | Maryam: La, ana Maryam
    محمد:اسف انا محمد | Muhammad: Assef, ana Muhammad
    مريم:انتَ محمد؟ اهل! | Maryam: Anta Muhammad? Ahlan (that symbol after the name 'Muhammad' is a question mark)
    محمد:نعم شكرا | Muhammad: Na'am, shokran (remember, on a'a, make the a sound from deep inside the throat)
    مريم:عفوا سلام | Maryam: Afwan, salaam
    محمد:سلام | Muhammad: Salaam

    Can you translate that?

    Insha'Allah, I will create a thread about the letters, pronunciation, and vowel marks. Al-hamdu Allah.
