So, how are you today? I hope you're well by the Grace of The Almighty.
If one is to ask the other how they are - they can use the following phrases...
كيف حالكَ؟ / كيف حالكِ؟
kaifa 7aalu-ka / kaifa 7aalu-ki
Here's a breakdown for those who need it:
كيف - kaifa - how
- 7aalu - condition
َﻛ - ka - yours (when addressing a male)
ِﻛ - ki - yours (when addressing a female)
that the extension 'ka' is used to address a male
and 'ki' is used to address a female.
Also, one can say to both males and females alike:
Kaif al-a7waal - which literally means 'how are the conditions?'
'a7waal' الأحوال is plural for '7aal' حال
You can add the word 'today' اليوم (alyawma) to the end of the phrase .
So here's what you have learnt today:
How are you today? كيف حالكَ؟ / كيف حالكِ؟
Kaifa 7aaluka? (m) / Kaifa 7aaluki? (f)
How's things today? كيف الأحوال اليوم؟ (m/f)
Kaifa-l a7waal alyawma?
Have a good day.... يومكم سعيد
