Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, we will learn how to write and pronounce the Arabic language words for "please", "thank you" and "you're welcome". We can see along the left side, we have written "Please", "Thank you", "Thank you very much" and "You're welcome". On the right side, in red, we have written down the English transliteration of the Arabic words, so we can learn how to pronounce them as well.
In Arabic, there are two ways that we can say "please", depending on if the person we are asking is a man or a woman.
The masculine form of "please", if we are asking a man, is "min fadlak". "Min" is spelled miim, nuun.
In order to make this "min", we will need a kasra on the miim. Again, that is "min".
"Fadlak" is spelled faa, daa, laam and ending kaaf.
In order make this for a man, we need a fatha on laam. Together, it is pronounced "min fadlak".
The feminine version is "min fadlik".
The consonant version of "fadlik" will be the same as "fadlak", so we will copy faa, daa, laam and ending kaaf.
In order to make this "min fadlik" instead of "min fadlak", we will need a kasra on the laam. Again, we have masculine as "min fadlak", and feminine as "min fadlik".
"Thank you" is pronounced "shukrân".
"Shukrân" is written shiin, kaa, ra and ending alif, which will take a double fatha to make the "ân" sound.
In order to make the "uu" sound, we will need a dhamma on shiin. Again, it is "shukrân".
In order to make this "Thank you very much", we will still copy "shukrân".
Then, we will add after it "jazilân", which means "a lot". "Jazilân" is spelled jiim, za, yaa, laam, alif, which will take the double fatha at the end. Again, it is "jazilân". Together, "shukrân jazilân" is "thank you very much".
For "You're welcome", we can simply say in standard Arabic, " 'afwân". " 'Afwân" is spelled ayn, faa, waaw and ending alif with a double fatha at the end. Again, it is pronounced " 'afwân".
This does conclude today's tutorial on the Arabic phrases for "please", "thank you", "thank you very much" and "you're welcome". If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please leave them in the space below.
