    Urdu has many similarities with Persian and Arabic, including the Alphabet system. As such the phrase Assalam Alaikum is the same phrase used in Arabic. It is used as a greeting and literaly means "peace on you."

    Shukria looks a lot like the Arabic word Shukran so it might mean thank you. As for the other words, I don't know.
