    Hello,
    I have tried to find it by myself but it became impossible. How is pureness, xxx in Arabic?
    If it's possible please tell me in Lebanese and Egyptian Arabic.
    Thank you very much.

    نقاء
    is it the word "pureness" I try to find?
    or maybe this one?
    طهارة

    Hi
    While نقاء and نقاوة can be used literally and figuratively, طهارة is usually used figuratively only.
    نقاوة الماء: pureness of water; نقاوة الروح: pureness of soul.
    طهارة الروح: pureness of soul.
