    What does it mean?

    Hi,

    I've bought a book a couple of days ago and now I wonder what the arabic word(s?) on the cover do(es) actually mean?

    Actually, it's Pashtu, not Arabic. But the word itself is Arabic, so..

    It reads "Infijari" (explosive, explodable(?)). It's a warning of some sort that they put on oil tanks. Something like "flammable"
    "С чий очи сънувам, чий е този лик обречен?
    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."

    I have completely forgotten to answer, sorry.

    Thanks, Yazeed. I must confess that it looked the same for me, but now as I checked it at Wiki Pashtu characters seem to look 'less complex'.

    I have another one:

    What is the title of the track nr. 10? It's supposed to mean 'human warmth', I think. I also would need this in text form in Arabic.

    LOL. Wrong translation. They translated it as 'human heat.'

    Re: What does it mean?

    Yazeed, its not Infijarii, its Inzihari. I do not speak Pashto and do not know what it means but I can trust my transliteration.

    I don't have an Arabic jeyboard right now but the characters are alif ... noon ... zuad (dhuad in Arabic) .... he ..... alif ....rhe .... yeh respectively (from right to left)

    Well as a native speaker of Arabic the word immediately sounded like "infijari," which, incidentally, means inflammable, explosive. Although on a second glace I think I missed the dot under the "j". I don't know the word that you posted, probably a purely Pashtu/Indo-Iranian word.
