This post is part of the A to Z Challenge. My theme for the month is A to Z of words in English with an Arabic origin.
Paulo Coelho is one of the contemporary writers who has introduced Arabic words like Maktoob and Zahir to the mainstream English readers. Yet, there is a common English word, used in the book ‘The Alchemist’ which too has an Arabic origin. Any guesses?
Opinions on the book ‘The Alchemist’?
