    Again I am not able to get help from Mr Platts on this word. Khasuusiyat, (or is it with a "qaaf"?) means speciality? This what I think from the various contexts in which I've heard this word used.

    Can it be used like in the sentence below?

    peRe hamaare yahaaN kii Khasuusiyat haiN

    Many thanks!

    Perhaps because the correct pronunciation is khusuusiyat...here is the entry.

    Thank you Alfaaz saaHib! Perhaps you could help me with a sample sentence which illustrates the meaning of this word other than speciality?

    Chhaatr SaaHib, I agree with you on the assessment of QP SaaHib's approach, it is great.
    What his post was not able to show and which is crucial to correct writing of Urdu is ذ Zaal. (just a hint for you).
    And mazaak is already almost good because it is not majaak, but it is ق qaaf at the end which is perhaps not usual to pronounce for you but I promise you it will come!

    QP: aage ko'ii maane yaa nah maane: kaun nahiiN maantaa! kharii chiiz ko ko'ii nahiiN jhuTlaa saktaa.
