Do you often come across Arabic speakers, but do not know any common Arabic greeting besides saying hello? In this blog post, you will learn some fantastic greetings in Arabic to get the conversation going.

This article has not only almost every standard Muslim greeting for Arabic people but also the greetings that work for non-Arab Muslim speakers. So, let’s get started!

How Do You Greet Someone In Arabic?

One of the popular greetings in Arabic is As-salaam ‘alykum or peace upon you.

Not knowing how to say hello in Arabic can be a big issue if you’re in an Arabic-speaking country. I went to various gulf countries to explore Arabic culture, but I refused to learn the language because it didn’t seem to be necessary.

I knew the most common way of greetings in Arabic, including “waʿalaykum as salām” or saying “ahlan wa sahlan”, but these do not help you escape from situations of awkward silence.

After having a negative encounter with a native speaker due to my lack of understanding, I learned my lesson. I started practicing every verbal greeting in Arabic, which helped me learn Arabic more quicker. Now that I have completed my journey of understanding every common greeting, I want to educate other people on this topic.

1. Ahlan (أهلاً), The Traditional Arabic Greeting

This is the simplest greeting used to say Hello In Arabic.It is a very polite greeting in Arabic, soft to say, and has a neutral touch. This can be used for anyone at any time of the day. It is usually said by putting hands around the back accompanied by a small kiss on the cheeks saying “أهلاً” “Ahlan”.

Traditionally, men are supposed to kiss men and ladies are supposed to kiss ladies but this also depends on the relationship the people have. Its reply is “اهلا بك” (Ahlan bik) for men. and “اهلا بكم ” (Ahlan biki) for women.

2. Salam Alaikum (سلام علیکم)

“Salam Alaikum” “سلام علیکم” or “Assalamu Alaikum” “السلام علیکم” is a common Arabic greeting. It is commonly spoken by all Muslims worldwide, not only Arabs. It has a literal meaning of“peace be upon you.”

Salam is comfortably used in all places and at all times of the day whenever two or more people meet each other. “Wa Alaykum as-salam,” “وعلیکم السلام” meaning “and upon you peace,” is the standard response of Salam Alaikum. Salam Alaikum is usually used when speaking to groups. Despite being a plural, Salam Alaikum (سلام علیکم) is used in both ways (singular or plural). Some variations in salam are:

It is kind of convenient. Levantine people use it for saying “Hello and Welcome.” A suitable reply is “ﻣَﺮﺣَﺒتﺎً” “Marhabaten” which means “Hello and welcome twice”. It is most commonly used among close friends.

5. Yateek Al Afiya (يعطيك الف عافيه)

The second use of it is by the locals who meet each other after a long time so when the meeting is over they say Allah Yuhifzik ( اللہ یحفظک) because they are very unsure about the next meeting.
