    If you have arab freinds try to practice it with them
    You could find a sunday school or something or join an arabic course (if there is)
    You could develop your basic arabic into better by reading maybe...
    The closest I have to real Arab "friends" is on the net lol

    One of my best friends is Somalian though lol. Yeah I'll check at my local masjid if they have any classes

    You don't have to be addicted to it to be haram.... they talk as if they know the "ghaib".... and really once i read in them.... it's just a complete random scattering of people's personalities according to their horoscope... it really annoys me seeing on egyptian t.v., muslims running a programme which is completely about horoscopes... and this guy comes up talking as if it is a great knowledge he possesses.
    i know thats just nonsense.. its funny when u think about it! all these idiots beleiving some guy as if hes some kind of saint!:rolleyes:

    Thanks

    I learnt "yalla" when I was in Medina in the shopping centre and this arrogant boy around my age [19] kept saying "yalla yalla" to the chip shop man because he wanted his food quick lol

    And I learn "sabr" from when I was next to the Kaba, when people kept pushing to kiss the Black Stone, and everyone kept saying it

    I learnt Maraba from the countless of shop owners who try and invite us in at every chance they get :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the welcome guys. o0MorseyMan0o is right Aliyah (beautiful name by the way, hope you don't mind if I call you that, it's just so gorgeous!), Britain and it's Muslim community need people like you to speak out. Have you heard of MPAC-UK? http://www.mpacuk.org/ I was a little disappointed with its website, to be honest, as it wasn't quite what I expected, but the young men who started the organisation said its purpose was to speak out against terrorism and educate people about the true Islam.

    I've seen a lot of Muslims type it on this board, and you've said the same thing, about the media changing, but how can the media change when all they've got to go on are the radical Muslims who make the news?? And can you really *expect* the media to change? With the exception of perhaps The Independent, the media do not care for anybody's rights, they care about what sells. The onus is on peaceful Muslims to make a larger noise than these extremists, and I really really hope you guys can do it
    Greetings Jen!
    I completely agree about the last line, we should try and keep it in mind! I've never used that site though, first time i'm seeing it!

    Inshallah you do well. There's a du'aa one could say before starting the exam. But I really don't know it's translation, seriously i try to find but most of the time i dont. Here it is:

    اللهم اشرح لي صدري ويسر لي أمري واحلل عقدة من لساني يفقه قولي
    Hey JazakhAllah bro! Do you think you could write it in English, like the transliteration? i.e. "Allahumma Ash..." as i can read arabic with diacritics, but without i find hard. Thanks bro!

    Ahlan Wasahlan can be also used for welcoming. And it is from original arabic (called arabic "fus-ha")
