(~_~) AHLÁN WA SÁHLAN (~_~) : The Arabic greeting, for "Welcome" *
Hello, seems to be derived from "HÁLA" the short form of purified Arabic "AHLÁN" literally meaning 'you are considered one of our family "AHL".
"SÁHLAN" means your presence is quite enjoyable, comfortable and smooth "SAHL" literally='easy'.
i.e. AHLÁN WA SÁHLAN = Feel at home! Welcome!.. etc.
"MARHÁBAN" also means welcome ... (you may also hear it "MARHÁBAH" in slang/spoken dialects.)
"MARHÁBAN BÉKOM" = You are welcome.
"MARHÁBAN BÉKOM FEÉ MISR" = you are welcome to Egypt.
"MARHÁBAN BÉKOM FEÉ BALADÉNA" = you are welcome to our country.
"EIH EL HA-LÁ-WA DÍ !" =how beautiful it is!
"SHAR-RAF-TOÚ-NA" =nice to meet you it is our honour*

Egypt (Misr, as called in Semitic tongues) is a core of divinities:
Monotheism concept had been initiated by the Pharaoh Akh-en-Aton 3368 years ago...
All Holy Books referred to Egypt ...
On Mount Sinai God spoke to Moses...
From Egypt Abraham got his Wife Hagar...
Into Egypt Jesus Christ escaped with his Mother Mary and Joseph finding the safe and peaceful refuge specified by the Lord.
It might seem to be Agia Sofia Church, recently the Blue Mosque in Turkey. according to nice comment written by our VTeer co-mate Sharrie titled "God in Christianity".
The photo shows the imitation of that Church/Mosque in Egypt under the regime of Mohammed Aly and kept his name too.
For your guidance also," St. Catherine Monastery in South Sinai is the only monastery in the world to embrace a church and a mosque. The mosque, of Fatimid origin, drew the attention of the German traveler Febri who visited Sinai in 1483 and the Swiss traveler Borkhart in 1816. The later discovered patterns in the mosque that indicate that the mosque was completed in 1106."
For guidance: Egyptians are mostly Moslems, Christians and few Jews. Mosques and Chruches are numerously found allover Egypt, some of which are quite adjacent and even closest to each other. Famous Jewish temple is found in Cairo at Adly street near by the centre, Another in Mansheya in Alexandria.
The main difference between Islam and Christianity is that both believe in the Holy Trinity, but Christians consider it as One, while Moslems consider the same as three. Anyway Creator of worlds is One, to Whom we all belong, and whom all believers worship, each in accordance with his religion with piety and full mutual respect. :)HOW? , OR Click for Our Feasts!

Let us now practice this simple vocabulary that we have acquired so far.. *
My Dutch friend Vdoortje may introduce herself in Arabic saying:
"SALALMÁT, ESSMI DORA, ANA MEN HOLÁNDA..MAA ASSALÁMAH."*
My German friend Lisalu may say:
ANA LISÁLU, MEN ALMÁNYA, ASSALÁMO ALÁYKOM."
Shopgal, my sweet Chinese/ Indonesian friend, who stays in Chicago, will add :
"YEA SALÁM, SAHL GÉDDAN."
ANA ESSMY SHOPGAL, ÁNA FEE CHICÁGO, MAWLOÚDA FEE INDONÉSIA, PAPA MEN ESSÉEN.
ÁHLAN WA SÁHLAN, ESSMÁK EH? ÁNTA MEN FEIN?..
I willl reply: *:
"ÁHLAN BÉEKY YEÁ SHOPGAL, ESSMY SAYED, ÁNA MEN MISR."

..etc. in the same way just above
Slowly slowly you will notice that affixes play the most important role in Arabic language. e.g. OHIBBÓKA may be one word, BUT in reality it is a complete sentence O-HIBB-ÓKA = I love you (addresed to a male); and "OHIBBÓKY" addressed to a female"
Now let me tell you all "OHIBBÓKOM GÉDDAN" and sure I do mean it from the bottom of my heart..
