    SAllam Allaikum,
    MAshallah, Mashallah! I now have an understanding of what the video is about. I really appreciate it. May Allah greatly reward you. Sheikh Jaber was a excellent reciter of the Quran, and with a God-given voice.You can search Youtube for his recitals and you might also like his recitations. Alhamdulillah!

    yeah sure I know him , he is very famous in SA bcz u know he was the Imam of Al-Haram Al-Makki , so certainly all of the Saudis know him .

    May Allah forgive him and have mercy on him .

    But Wafeeka Barak is acceptable right ?

    So same applies with replying to "Jazakalluhu khayran"

    "Wa Jazaka Feek" or "Feeka Jazak"

    (wa salaam )

    it's a short word of the full sentence (Peace and mercy of God be upon you) السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته . it's an islamic greeting
    but people here make it short as waslamm . they dont wirte the full sentence.
    alothough it's better to write it because u will reward for every letter .

    it used when u finshed ur talking or ur subject u write it at the end. and some people say waslam on the phone instead of saying good bye or (maa salama ) in arabic

    i hope u understand my explaination .

    As what my sis Hana mentioned , it's an abbriviation , I only saw it here on TTI .

    wa = and , Assalam = the peace .

    in pronounciation you say : wassalam .
    means and the peace ( something like and the peace to you too )

    but I'd rather not to use it , wa alaikom assalam is better .

    I hope you got it my brother :)

    Hmmmm im not satisfied. Forgive me :)

    But I`ll take what you said Inshallah.

    In Saudi Arabia do people say "Ayyuwa" for yes at times or do they always say "Na`am" ?

    Why ?? is there something wrong in my explaination ? :)

    we say ayywah , eeeh , both means YES .. but it's in the classic Arabic .

    The word Ei إي means yes and it's in the Fos'ha Arabic , actually it's mentioned in the Quran .

    Salemti = may Allah make u safe ... I and many use it instead of shokran :)
    salemta is for male .

    da'awat = the plural of du'a .. it's also means invitations but in this sentence means du'a .

    try to translate the rest .. your Arabic seems good masha Allah :)

    Hmm i heard Shiekh Albani say it ...or (now) i think i heard him say it.

    Fosha arabic is the Quranic arabic right? My teacher said if i write "Ayyuwa" in my exam or use it orally i will get zero marks.

    and i dont know what "Jazayti" means.But its intended for female without a doubt.

    Yes it is , actually it's the correct Arabic , the classic Arabic which we use nowadays is 98 % wrong .

    yes you'll get ZERO bcz it's wrong , it's in the classic Arabic . write Na'am or Ei .. but na'am is better for you as a learner , I don't know if ur teacher knows Ei is a Fos'ha word .

    It's : Jouzeta ( male ) Jouzeti ( female )
    it's the same as Jazaki \ Jazaka BUT the jouzeti\ jouzeta are Passive
    it's like : May you be rewarded
    jazaka : reward u .

    Got it ? :)

    I meant grammatically :)


    No it's not the same .
    I forgot what is it in English but one of them is passive the another one is .... ( I forgot )

    For example : I eat the apple ( like : Jazaka Allahu khayeran )
    The apple is eaten ( like : jouzeta khaeyran )

    The mudhaf is like : The door of the class :
    Mudhaf is Door , Mudhaf elayhi is The Class .

    In Arabic : Babu Al-Fasli
    Bab is the mudhaf , Al-fasl is the Mudhaf elayhi .

    I hope you understood me ?
