    Hi there,

    I would like to translate the expression "to feel good" or "to feel comfortable" into Arabic and I wonder which verb to use for "to feel":

    Here is the context: For my part, I feel good/comfortable in my bed, I stay in it. (In the story, the man didn't feel like getting up while there was the fire in the house).

    I found two verbs for "to feel": تَهَنَأَ and شَعَرَ. But should it be translated this way:

    أَمَّا أَنا فأَتَهَنَّأُ بِالوُجود في الفِراشِ أوَ أَشْعَرُ بالتَرفيةِ في الفراشِ

    Thank you in advance,

    Thank you again Khidmat, I don't think spontaneously to Arabic formulas like إِنّي at the beginning of the sentence. I think you made a little mistake at the end of the sentence though: shouldn't it be أَبْقى instead of أبقي and مستلقا instead of مستلقيا ?

    أشعر بالراحة في فراشي, فأبقى مستلقيا فيه
    i feel comfortable in my bed, so i stay lying in it.

    Thank you lama-94. Your correction allows me to keep as well the formula with the verb أشعر I was searching for. I notice that you wrote مستلقيا as khidmat did while I thought he made a mistake! I apologize then khidmat to have been doubting of your answer, I was just not understanding.
