#QTip: Calling just to say hello (it's important)

10,341

In Arabic culture, it's very important to call people just to say hello. It shows that you care about the person and don't just call simply when you need something. It's about maintaining a relationship whether personal or for business purposes. When's the last time you called someone just to say hi?

#QTip: The Majlis 101 - Season Finale

#QTip: The Majlis 101 - Invited - Season Finale

11,883

All good things must come to an end! This is just the end of Season 1!

In this episode we share some quick info on the Majlis. What the back cushion is called, what the side cushion is called, and invites.

If you're invited to a person's majlis, that's a sign of great respect and trust. It means that you've got an open ended invitation to pass by and have a tea. Remember though, Majlises (is the plural of Majlis Majli?) are typically separated, meaning there's a men's majlis and a women's hang out spot.

Of course, this may seem like common sense, but it's always good to get a reminder :)

#QTip: The different ways of saying hello (and what they mean)

51,304

Check back EVERY SUNDAY! In this episode of #QTips, we share a few of the different ways we say hello, and what they mean. It's interesting to some that something like Shlonik, although it means how are you, literally means "What's your color", as in what color mood are you in. 

When greeting, typically you would ask how someone is doing multiple times even though you've already received the answer.

Some examples (literally translated but all mean how are you)

Shlonik?  What's your color?

Shakhbarik? What's your news?

Shim sawee? What are you doing?
