English term or phrase: serenity
I wish I had serentiy
Sarah
Arabic translation:الطمأنينة، الاطمئنان، سكون النفس
Explanation:
The three suggested translations above are pronounced:

AL-TUMA'NEENA
AL-ITMI'NAN
SUKOON AL-NAFS

I am partial to the first one. The second is derived from the same root.

The third is probably more n tune with contemporary usage.

Al-Mawrid Dictionary suggests two other terms, HUDOO' and SAFA', but they don't ring true to me.

Sakeena means: Calmness of mind; evenness of temper, quietness and peace.
(a Madonna-like serenity)

Laaytanee ajedo assakeena
ليتني أجد السكينة
