"Forget it" or "Forget her."
Explanation:
This is more probable than my first attempt.

Notice that in Arabic, there are no neuter pronouns, only masculine and feminine. They are used for both animate and inanimate objects.

Explanation:
In the absence of meaningful context, this is no more than a wild guess.

If it is what I think it is, then this is not standard Arabic, but Levantine colloquial Arabic.

In standard Arabic, the word would be pronounced NASEEHA.
