How do you use prepositions to emphasize in Arabic?

You can use ب or من to emphasize in Arabic. They are extra letters to convey emphasis. The rules are simple.

LAST UPDATED: 1 month ago

Arabic has many tools and devices to convey . A common and easy solution are prepositions.

Additional letters to emphasize in Arabic Hide
  1. The letter ب (bi)
  2. The preposition من (min)

Let us have a look at some examples. Both – ب and the preposition مِنْ – can be used to give emphasis. They are used as extra letters then and do not convey their orginal meaning of a preposition!

Nevertheless, the word which comes after بِ or مِنْ has to be مَجْرُور (majrour) – the same as if it was used to convey the meaning of a direction/preposition.

The letter ب (bi)

Travelling is not difficult at all.لَيْسَ السَّفَرُ بِصَعْبٍ
Allah is the best protector!كَفَى بِاللَّهِ وَكِيلًا

Note: The verb كَفَى basically means to be enough. However, it can also mean to protect; to spare. It is used without a preposition. The preposition ب here is used to emphasize.

The preposition من (min)

There has to be a singular اِسْم (noun) after it. Notice that there is no difference in meaning whether the sentence is written with or without مِنْ – it is just the emphasis!

Nobody came to me.ما جاءَنِي مِنْ أَحَدٍ

Did you know? There are many ways to emphasize in Arabic. You could use the letter nun with a verb or use separate pronouns.
