  2. Hey now, don’t make me wait for aeons and ages, and then write in Arabic! It’s not fair. 😉 I miss your posts. Though I know you’re busy and I hope all is well with you.

    i’d say

    it’s a double negative
    but no that wouldn’t work here
    fugor bil ghorbeh?


  5. Verbal Alchemy says:

    then why do we insist on fa2r bil gherbeh than fa2r bil wa6an??

  6. Verbal Alchemy says:

    sorry Marv, next time will be in english, i rarely write in arabic anyway 🙂

    this roughly translates to:

    the Imam, Ali Bin Abi Taleb (4th and last Caliph of Islam) said: poverty in one’s country is like being in exile, and wealth in exile is one’s country. so im asking so whats poverty in exile considered?

  7. Cool, thanks for translating! But it’s a riddle, isn’t it? Hmmmm…. makes my brain hurt.
