You know when the Prophet peace be upon him sent some of the muslim to the Christian King, I think the people were Habesh, im basically originally from roughly there.

Also tigrigna is a common language in a country nexto ethiopia called eritrea and basically it is like Hebrew in style of writing but it is very similar to arabic

Lol nope, I just come from that country, believe it or not they still use the language sis.

And I dont know what Habesh means, sorry. I am called, as in the people Habesha, and I think the place used to be reffered to as Abesentia or something.

But now although the country split, someone can say they are Ethiopian or Eritrean, but at the same time can be Habesha.

But I think here are different tribes there.

I think its like one of the eldest civilisations or something. Plus its in the Bible too.

The king that the Prophet peace be upon spoke about was a man or justice or truth or something, who was a Christian. Its a nice story.

Anyhow, I take it yall dont speak it. If you do you seem very surpised. lol

wow i found this

source : wikipedia

Tigrinya (also spelt Tigrigna) is a Semitic language spoken by the Tigray-Tigrinya people in central Eritrea, where it is one of the main working languages (Eritrea does not have official languages), and in the Tigray Region of Ethiopia, where it also has official status, and among groups of emigrants from these regions, including some of the Beta Israel now living in Israel. Tigrinya should not be confused with the related Tigre language, which is spoken in a region in Eritrea to the west of the region where Tigrinya is spoken.

For the representation of Tigrinya sounds, this article uses a modification of a system that is common (though not universal) among linguists who work on Ethiopian Semitic languages, but it differs somewhat from the conventions of the International Phonetic Alphabet.
In order to view the Tigrinya characters, you will need a Unicode Ge'ez font, such as GF Zemen Unicode.

Ke me (like the me in metaphor) E (like the letter)

Ke me e Alekhum (like salam aleykum but kh not k)

That means how are yall, plural is respect, normally said to grandparents and peple of older generations.

Ke me e Alekhi - directed to wards female, how are ya.

Ke me e Alekha - directed towards male, how are ya

or you can say

Dahan do (pronouced like the whole word dough)

That means like erm, like 'you ok' though there is no you in it, Dahan is like Ok or fine and do is like the askin, basically like saying 'aite' without saying are you alright.

Thats all from me cos this is harder than I though.

I jus remember like 2 words.

Gual Keren, Ambesa Walida.

Girl from Keren gave birth to a Lion.

lol lets go with the basics first before we break into song and dance,


I. Common sentences

What is your name?
Masculine singular: Men iyu shimka?
Feminine singular: Men iyu shimki?
Plural or Polite form: Men iyu shimkum?
My name is: Shimey iyu.

How old are you? Edmiekha kindey iyu? (masc. sing.)
Edmiekhi kindey iyu? (fem. sing)
Edmiekhum kindey iyu? (plural or polite form)
I am ------- years old. Edmey___ emet iyu.
Where are you from? Kabey metsik-ha /-hi /-hum?
I am from ----------. Kab ------- metsie.

Tigrignians can spend several minutes before starting a conversation just greeting each other, asking for the health of all relatives, parents, children, friends, how is life?, are you ok?…etc. Greetings are important in tigrignian culture and lack of them when starting a conversation can be considered impolite.
The word Selam ("peace be upon you") is the most usual greeting word and can be used any time for any person.
Other common greetings are:
How did you spend the night? (Good morning) = Kemey hadirka /-ki /-kum
Thanks to God, I am fine = Egziabher yimesgen (singular male polite answer)
Good afternoon = Kemey weilka /-ki /-kum
Good evening = Kemey amssikha /-khi /-khum
How are you? = Kemey alekha /-khi /-khum?
Fine = Tsobuk!
Are you ok? = Dahan do? or Dahan dekha /-khi /-khum?
I am Ok or we (my soul and I) are ok = Alenna
Goodbye = Dahan kun / kuni / kunu


so Isa kemey alekha?

Alhamdulila..

I just read through this and I thought there were some minor mistakes, so I asked my mum and she agreed.

I will post tomorow because I jus got back from work and I cant think Tigrygna.

But most of the stuff u said is correct and someone would understand you but it isnt the typical language.

for example

Masculine singular: Men iyu shimka?

Would be: Men Shimka, you dont gotta say Iyu.

eritrea received it's independence in the 90's but remember the eritreans fought for it for over 30 yrs

so in the hearts of the eritreans Eritrea exsisted long before the 90's

Sis fisabil'Allah are you Eritrean, if you dont mind me asking, I think the first eritrean Muslimah, I have noticed one thing about 'some' Eritrean Muslims they seem to be very relaxed as in with music and women dancing, is that all or jus a little minority I have seen?

And bro Ahmed, I think I should learn about eritrea but at the moment I got bigger fish to fry.

As for the Dawa there from what my mom seems to say it aint very effective, she is christian and she was telling me like 'Dont become like the Muslims here in the UK, they are different to the ones in Eritrea, in Eritrea they are nice they see you as equal they eat with you and you can go eat with them they dont mind slaughterin sheep for you (lol), but here they ask you if your muslim and if you are not they dont treat you well' and so she went on, it seems like they all jus live side by side, though I remember now, before I was muslim, when I visited thereI used to hear the Adhan, I so wanna go back and be a muadhin for abit.

It depends, on waht they mean, like what country, Kab Adi Guadad or Kab Asmera. But you said Metsie, which means I came, so if someone asks you 'Where have u jus come from' Kab Adis Abeba metsie, I mean thats how I would use it, to intend me coming just then, if someone asks me what country am from, i'd jus say Am from Eritrea, Kab Eritra, but if you say Kab Eritra metsie, u add a sense of having come, instead of jus from Eritrea, u say I have come from, get the difference? its as if you've jus come.

Other common greetings are:

Thanks to God, I am fine = Egziabher yimesgen (singular male polite answer)
Yes your right, u can spend 5 minutes literally asking the same questions in different ways, 'how are you, everything good, hows the family, how you been, are you ok, I hope eveyrthing is fine" and thats before the other person has even answerd lol.

I dont knw if you can say Egzabiher yimesgen, I dont know cos I only know christians so I dont know if muslims say that, though i know that the word Amlah is never given to anyone but G-d the Father in their bible.

Tsobuk, I have had a dilema I was teaching someone, and I was thinking Tsobuk, that is not really 'fine' as such, cos Tsobuk is something you say to food aswell, like if someone says hows the food, 'betaamy tsubuk' very nice? right? :p

I think also, in tigrigna, the questions are mixed with statements, like 'your good arent you?' Dahan eha mish or Dahan do alekha. it doesnt seem like a plain are you ok alot of the time, for me anyway.

wow Eritreans are usually very ''politics'' orientated people( at least my friends are)

i have received mixed feelings about him when i asked other Eritreans

it's about 60% good 30% bad and the other 10% has no opinion like you lol

but when was the last time you went back to East africa?

Yes, eritreans tend to be very political but Im not the typical eritrean, I mean I speak eritrean I spend time with my family, but I dont really talk about polotics when they do it all goes over my head :p

I aint been there since like 1995 or something and I might be going next summer too or maybe christmas time

But in some ways I really dont wanna go, I do cos it will be cool to see the islamic side, but I dont cos just its gonna be so annoying its gonn put me in alot of bad situations and so on, plus my mom said shes gonna make me go speak to priests thats something I kinda dislike but look forward to, just to see what they say

Assalamualikum.
if anyone can help me at all, I would very much appreciate it, I really need to learn a few essential phrases in this language, if anyone could give me a 'quick crash course' inshaAllah? I do not know anyone who speaks the language therefor it is hard for me to learn a little bit, thats all I want.
JazakhAllah khayrun in advance.
