Cultural Expression: العباراتُ الشـَّائِعَة:

This is unacceptable excuse! هَذا عُذرٌ غَيرُ مَقبول ٍ!
Thanks to God for your safety! ألحَمدُ للـَّهِ علی سَلامَتِكَِ!
Everything is in God hand! کـُلُّ شـَيءٍ بـِيَدِ اللـَّهِ!
By God, I don’t know what to say! واللـَّهِ لا أعرِفُ ما أقولُ!
By God, I was very busy. واللـَّهِ کـُنتُ مَشغولا جـِدَّآً.
This is a simple matter/thing. هَذا شـَيءٌ بَسيط ٌ.
You are crazy! أنتَ مَجنونٌ!
it is necessary that .... لا بُدَّ أنْ
nothing but ...... لـَيسَ إلا َّ......
I do not want to burden you. لا أريدُ أنْ أثقِلَ عَلـَيکـُم
