  • You should come more often, the kids love playing with you
  • If you are a guest in a house, bring some sweets and gifts for the family and children if any. This shows a sign of gratitude.

  • The host sits at the head of the table, while the honored guest is seated next to the host and on the side of the table furthest from the door
  • I got you a gift Omar!
  • Yusuf, sit here, right beside me, and away from the door and Omar say thank you for the gift. 
  • Dining is done with forks, spoons and knifes, Western Style. The knife is held in the right hand and the fork in the left. Do not switch hands for knives and forks.
  • Do not begin to eat or drink until the oldest man has been served. Insist that the oldest eats first as it will be seen as a great compliment. If unsure, ask the host if you may begin. 
  • I wonder if I can start eating, I'm starving.
  • Everyone it's time to eat!
  • Let's Eat!
