Arabic words that begin with “Meem” م

Ever notice words that begin with a م?

Here is a general beginner rule to understand how the vowel marker on the م can change the meaning of a word. 

1. If the م has a kasra (مِ) on it, then it will *generally* refer to a tool in which the meaning of the following letters are performed with. 

Examples:

مِكْنَسَة is the tool that is used to كَنَسَ broom

مِكْواة is a tool used to كَوَى iron

2. If the م has a dhumma (مُ) on it, then it will *generally* refer to a person who possesses the meaning of the letters that follow. 

Examples:

مُسْلِم is a person who أَسْلَم submits

مُؤْمِن is a person who آمَنَ believes

3. If the م has a fatha (مَ) on it, then it will *generally* refer to a place in which the meaning of the letters that follow are performed. 

Examples: 

مَسْجِد Is a place where سُجُود occurs

مَقْبَرَة is a place where قَبْر burials occur
