🤔Can you put together an answer to the question above in Arabic?

🎇Unfortunately, this is our last Arabic language blog post. Since we are saying goodbye, let’s review some common ways to say goodbye in Modern Standard Arabic.

🎇Let’s begin with the most common way to say goodbye in Arabic used in both formal and non formal situations.

مع السَّلامة

Meaning “with peace/safety”.

السَّلامُ عَليكُم 

Meaning “peace be upon you”. As well as a greeting, this phrase can also be used to bid someone farewell. It is a formal way to say goodbye and always the safest choice with people you briefly come in contact with such as cab drivers, officials, or sellers at the market.


Is very formal coming from the word وداع which is literally the act of saying “goodbye” or “farewell”.

إلى اللقاء

Meaning “see you later” or “till our next meeting”.

There is no need to conjugate these depending on gender, singular or plural.

الله معك

“May God be with you”. This is another common way to say goodbye. Works in both formal and informal contexts. Sometimes it’s added to other goodbye phrases or said on its own. You’ll need to conjugate this phrase.

الله مَعَك (male)

الله مَعِك  (female)

الله مَعْكُم  (plural)

I hope you found this post to help you describe your goals for learning Arabic and that you continue to do so.
