How to say “I have” in Arabic!
In Arabic, saying I have is a bit different, than English. Instead of needing to attach a verb and pronoun, we can simply use the words ( عند ) or ( لدى ) and attach a suffix Arabic pronoun. This simple rule allows us to avoid the hassle of verb conjugation. Here are some examples:
عندي كتب كثيرة
لدينا بيت كبير
أحمد لديه سيارة
أختي عندها حقيبة جميلة
الطلاب لديهم اختبار غدا
هل عندكم أصدقاء من سنغافورة؟
How to say it in past or future tense!
In order to change the tense of your I have sentence, just add كان to refer to the past and سيكون to refer to the future.
كان عندي حاسوب قديم
سيكون لدي حاسوب جديد
I hope you find it easy now to say “have”.

One of the most popular words in Arabic is the word “ تفَضَّل ”. It is used in a variety of contexts, and can take on different meanings. For instance, if you would like to welcome someone to your home, or invite them to take a seat, you can just say تَفَضَّل. If you are handing something to someone, you can also politely say تَفَضَّل. Finally, if you are giving someone the okay to start something, you can also say تَفَضَّل.
Whether you are saying: Be my guest, Go ahead, or Please, continue; تَفَضَّل is a respectful way to address someone.
Here are some examples of how تَفَضَّل is used in Arabic:
تَفَضَّل ادخل .. تَفَضَّل اجلس .. تَفَضَّل كُل .. تَفَضَّل خُذ .. تَفَضَّل تكَلَّم
As long as it is understood from the situation, even just the word تَفَضَّل works on its own, and you don’t have to add anything to make it clearer.
The popular saying is even used at the end of formal messages: “ تفضلوا بقبول فائق الاحترام”
So please مِن فَضْلِك Tafaddal.. read this and enjoy learning Arabic.
