How do you say mine in Arabic?

A special way of expressing possession in Arabic: repetition plus possessive pronoun. By this, you can express mine or yours in Arabic.

Last updated: May 2, 2021

The possessive pronoun can be tricky in Arabic.

For example, how do you say: This car is mine”?

In Arabic, there are no words like mine; yours; his or hers which we call possessive pronouns in English. There are several ways to express the same meaning.

Let’s have a look at a pretty easy and solid solution. You could for example repeat the thing being possessed and add the appropriate pronoun suffix.

This car is mine.هٰذِهِ السَّيّارةُ سَيَّارَتِي
The book is hers.الْكِتابُ كِتابُها
