Explanation: If you wanted the term equivalent to 'welcome' the literal term in Arabic would be 'Marhaba'
Other greetings used especially for receiving guests are: 'Ahlan' or 'Ahlan Wasahlan' or 'Salaam' or 'As-Salaamu 'Alaikum'.
The Arabic language is particularly rich in greeting terms, more so than English.
