Happy new Hijri year!

My Mangoli friend Abed sent this MP3 of Tala'a al badero Alina but in Adyghabza, enjoy and happy new hijri year. ( I KNOW IT'S TOO LATE)

Special thanks to RadioAdiga for their hard work.


  1. hey jad: I read your posts so often, but it REALLY annoys me when you keep saying "my mangouli" friend! as if you are cursing him in a funny way or sth! Avery dear and close person to me is mangouli, and he is the most perfect among us all! Unless, his family's name is mangouli, then its my bad and i apologise! other than that, i'd really appreciate you never use this nick again, cuz its not funny. Thank you:)

  2. Zahra,

    I must say I agree with you. I should also say that knowing Jad through this blog, he is not in any way insensitive or corse. I am sure you realize that this word is used as a funny insult sometimes, and I can now see how that is totally in appropriate.

    Personally, I prefer insults that are a combination of other unrelated words, like Blockhead or buttmunch. I cant say here how I insult (in a friendly way) my friends in Arabic.

  3. Zahra,
    I agree with you but I will have to keep calling him mangoli until I find a better name to tease him with, maybe I should start using Na3ouri.

    Honestly I don't mean to dis anyone at all, I'm not racist person but extra funny with menthol.

    Thank you 7aj, would you mind emailing me the Arabic names you use with your friends? you know now I have to find new one for Abed.

    Thank you.
