Happy New Year!


Explanation:
Idiomatic expression for NewYear's wishes do not translate word for word. They have to be rendered with an equivalent idiomatic expresion.
Now, if you need the word for word detail of the Arabic expression:
May every year find you in good health (and by extension: in good spirits/situation/etc.)

Many Happy Returns (of the Occasion)


Explanation:
However, some render the literal meanings of the Arabic phrase (This is usually done with academic studies and surveys). It is translated as:
