About the proverb:

  • Arabic: كله عند العرب صابون
  • Pronunciation: “Kullu ʿand el-ʿArab Saboun”
  • Literal meaning: All of it (i.e., various types of soap), as far as the Arabs (bedouins) are concerned, is (just) soap.
  • Meaning: It is all the same thing to those who know nothing.
    The proverb applies to the ignorant person who does not differentiate between one thing and another thing, and what is meant by Arabs here are the Bedouins, that is, the inhabitants of the desert. This saying expresses that the Arabs use everything that takes the place of soap and do not differentiate, and it is said to those who do not differentiate between close things.

 

In which situations can you use it:

  • It is used to express: It doesn’t matter. Depending on the situation, it can be more or less equivalent to the English “That’s six of one and half a dozen of the other” or “to be much of a muchness”.
  • It can serve as a negative metaphor for criticizing people who are intolerant and do not distinguish between good and bad and do not have clear standards for judging people or things. It’s used when someone looks at different things as if they were all the same – or that he or she doesn’t notice the difference.
  • It helps reduce confusion when choosing between options that lead to the same result.
