Greetings, I have introduced myself in someother thread a couple days ago, am learning the Arabic in the good ol' United States of America, am at a most basic level; and my Iraqi friend, Taha (Kurdish) is returning to the university after being away for the summer, and I would like to know a proper way ( or the most appropriate way?) to greet him, in Arabic, with an equivalent of "Welcome back, Taha". I am sorry if this has been discussed on here before, I did a quick search on this site and the best I could come up with is "Welcome Home" Welcome Home But as he is not returning home, that is not the message I wish to convey. I am guessing it will be "Ahlan wa salhan...something" but that is just my basic understanding of things. I can read and write the Arabic script just fine, so I'd like to see that too please. Shukran!
