Only used when speaking to an elder or someone of high respect
I like to hear marahaba spoken. I say it wrong I think. But cannot hear it in this app
it's available now
Marahaba has origins in Arabic too. It can also be used as a greeting. But in Kiswahili it is usually used as a response to Shikamoo
What context would this be used in? It sounds like it would mean your welcome.
it's a response to the greeting 'Shikamoo', which is usually offered to someone who is older/you hold in high regard (to show respect), to which they respond 'marahaba'
