mrahaban مرحبا


Explanation:
Hello
If you are the visitor
Hello is simply marhaba or marhaban مرحبا (the first marhaba is without Arabic diacritics)
Or: assalamo a’aliakum السلام عليكم
If you are welcoming someone visiting you it is:
Ahlan wa sahlan أهلاً وسهلاً
Or:: ahlan wa marhaban أهلاً ومرحباً
Or: ya halla يا هلا
Or just: halla هلا
If you are using the phone it would be:
Allo.. marhaba or marhaban آلو.. مرحبا
