Description:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: When visiting someone unexpectedly, hamatik ba-tohebik, or your mother-in-law loves you, becomes an invitation to join them in their meal. For about fifteen years, Rebecca Joubin, the chair of Arab studies at Davidson College, has travelled in and conducted research on Syria. Noticing the use of proverbs and expressions as a signature of Syrian culture and identity, she began writing down the phrases she heard in casual conversation and in the local media. The expressions are presented here in Syrian-Arabic, in modern standard Arabic and, for those not familiar with the language, in English translation; and when necessary, they are explained. Her collection is ideal for all students of Arabic as well as those interested in the rich culture of Syria. The sayings have been divided by topic such as the body, food, animals, colors, homeland, work, experience, etc. In this collection we see the many unique values and attributes of Syrian culture. We observe kindness, hospitality, generosity, forgiveness, and humility. More importantly, in addition to observing the singularities of Syrian culture, we learn about the universalities of human nature. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. Of all the historical, religious and cultural events in the history of the United States, the arrival of Abdul-Bah in 1912 was the most important one of all. Many people-from all facets of society-had the honor to meet Him, attend His talks, benefit from His wisdom and witness His benevolence and humility. Their encounter with Abdul-Bah was life- altering: He touched the depths of their souls and awakened them spiritually. This re-telling of Abdul-Bahs days in New York City is both inspiring and illuminating. It is intended to bring you closer to this unique figure in spiritual history, whose life will serve as a model of the true spiritual and ethical life for centuries to come.
