    Greet someone with "As-salam alaykom."[1] This is a basic, formal greeting you can use with men and women and in the vast majority of social situations.

    • It is most commonly used by Muslims greeting other Muslims, but it has also been used in other circumstances and situations, as well.
    • In Arabic script, this greeting is written from right to left as: السلام عليكم
    • This phrase should be pronounced as Ahl sah-LAHM ah-LAY-koom.[2]

    • Translated literally, this is a return blessing meaning “peace be upon you, as well” or “and peace to you.”
    • Again, it is most frequently used by Muslims greeting other Muslims, but it can and has been used in other contexts, too.
    • In Arabic script, this greeting is written from right to left as: وعليكم السلام
    • This greeting should be pronounced as Wah ah-LAY-koom ahl sah-LAHM.

    1

    Shorten your greeting to "Salam." This is a fairly casual, easy-going way to tell someone “hi” in Arabic.
    • Translated directly, this term means “peace.” When you say this phrase, you are making a nod to the full phrase “as-salam alaykom,” or “peace upon you,” yet shortening it for the sake of ease. As a shortened form, however, you would generally only use it with family or friends with whom you can speak informally.
    • In Arabic script, this greeting is written from right to left as: سلام
    • Pronounce this Arabic greeting as sah-LAHM.
  2. Image titled Say Hello in Arabic Step 8

    Casually greet someone with "Marḥaban." This is another casual way to say “hi” to someone with whom you are on close terms.
    • This interjection can be translated either as "hello" or "hi." It's a more secular greeting, so it is most common among non-religious speakers of Arabic or speakers who are greeting non-religious people.
    • In Arabic script, this greeting is written from right to left as: مرحبا
    • This greeting should be pronounced as MARR-hah-bah.

    Welcome someone with "Ahlan." If someone meets you at your home, work, or another location, you should use this greeting to offer a welcoming "hello."
    • This greeting translates into “welcome,” but this “welcome” is usually used as an interjection rather than any other part of speech. As such, you would use it to say “Welcome!” to someone as he or she walks through the door.
    • In Arabic script, this greeting is written from right to left as: أَهلا
    • Pronounce this greeting as ah-lahn.

    Reply to a welcoming greeting with "Ahlan Wa Sahlan." If someone greets and welcomes you with “Ahlan” first, this is the most appropriate way to greet that person in reply.
    • In essence, you are saying “welcome to you, too.” Use it in response to “ahlan” or “marḥaban.”
    • In Arabic script, this greeting is written from right to left as: أهلا وسهلا
    • You should pronounce this Arabic phrase as ah-lahn wah sah-lahn.

    Greet a close friend with "Ahlan sadiqi" or "Ahlan sadiqati."[3] The former is a way to say “Hey, friend!” to a male, while the latter should be used to say the same thing to a female friend.
    • “Ahlan sadiqi” translates into “hey, male friend,” and “Ahlan sadiqati” translates into “hey, female friend.” The former greeting is only given to males while the latter is only given to females.
    • In Arabic script, “ Ahlan sadiqi” is written from right to left as: أهلا صديقي
    • Pronounce this greeting as ah-lahn sah-dii-kii.
