Arabic Pick #019

I wanted to share some of the Arabic words and phrases I've learned over the years. If you are an Arabic language enthusiast just like me, try to incorporate the words or phrases posted here into your daily vocabulary. Have fun!
Hala everyone and welcome back to "Arabic Pick". In this week, the Arabic word/phrase is...
English:  Wait; Hold on
Say "Entaderi" to a woman.
Mimi:  Let's go to sleep. My eyes are starting to close.
Jino:  Entaderi, Mimi. Let me finish this first.
Mimi:  Okay, but make it fast!
Jino:  Alright, I'm done. Yalla, goodnight!
Mimi:  Entader!!!
Jino:  Eh?!
Mimi:  Just kidding, LOL, goodnight!

P.S. I have learned the above words or phrases informally. Arabic speakers, please feel free to correct me. Thanks!
