The meaning of a word (اِلَيْكَ)
I hope this is the right place to ask. I have been studying some dua's and stumbled upon a word that I would like to know the meaning of: اِلَيْكَ If I am not mistaken, fonetically it is written as 'ileyk'. Does anyone know the definition or translation of this word? The sentence in this context is: وَ نُؤْمِنُ بِكَ وَ نَتُوبُ اِلَيْكَ
Thank you very much in advance!
As far as I know, the word ِإلَيكَ (notice ء) consists of two components: إلى (the translation depends; it can mean “to” (indicating direction), “towards”, “into” etc. depending on the context, e.g. a verb (in this case نَتُوبُ) and the suffix كَ.Thus in this context it means “to You” in English. The whole sentence can be translated as follows: “We believe in You and we repent to You.”
Thank you for answering. Do Arabic and Armenian share the same alphabet? I translated the webpage with google translate (I can't speak Arabic) and I think the translation you gave me was for the name 'Alec' (آليك) and not 'Ileyk' (اِلَيْكَ). Is there a translation specifically for the name 'Ileyke' or 'Ileyk'?
