The Body Parts in Arabic: The Hands and Feet

In today’s Arabic lesson, we are going to continue learning about the “human body parts in Arabic” and more specifically about two parts of the human body, the hardest working and most visible ones: the hands and the feet in Arabic and their Arabic pronunciation. We are including the Arabic pronunciation of these names to help you learn how to speak Arabic more fluently. Remember that the goal here is to learn as much Arabic Vocabulary as possible by memorizing and frequently using these Arabic names when speaking the Arabic language.

8HeelKa’b      كعب ku’ūb      كعوب
9ToeEsba’ Al-Qadam      إِصْبَع القدم Asābi’ Al-Qadam      أَصابِع القدم

NB: Keep in mind that the foot in Arabic may also be referred to as “Rijl” (      رجل ) instead of “Qadam” (      قَدَم ) that’s why some people may call the toe-fingers in Arabic either “Athāfir Ar-Rijl” (      أظافر الرجل ) or “Athāfir Al-Qadam” (      أظافر القَدَم ). The same thing goes for the toes, both “Asābi’ Al-Qadam” (      أَصابِع القدم ) and “Asābi’ Ar-Rijl” (      أَصابِع الرجل ) are correct Arabic translations.
