The Top 10 Quotes for Mother’s Day in Arabic! Posted by on Mar 21, 2015 in Arabic Language, art, Culture, Current Affairs, Language

Marhaba! Mother’s Day is celebrated on March 21st across the Arab world. It coincides with the beginning of the beautiful Spring season. In the past, I have shared Marcel Khalife’s beautiful ballad, ‘To My Mother,’ and today, I want to share what I think are the top 10 quotes for mother’s day! Please note that some are originally in Arabic, while others in English. I have translated them either way to help you all learn, appreciate, understand, and most importantly, use these beautiful expressions. On this occasion, I want to wish all the mothers out there and mothers to be among our Arabic lovers a very Happy Mother’s Day (عيد أم سعيد)! May you all have years of happiness, good health, and love.

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
