Al Helm means the mind!! Al Holm the dream


I tried to enter Al Helm (th Mind, Wisdom....) the way you spelled it for the MLK Jr. in Detroit

event in Arabic but was not successful. You probably meant Al Holm (the Dream).

I'm still discovring your web site contents and a novice at it; do not take my remark as an insult. 


Thank you.





Thank you for the comment,

Thank you for the comment, Toufik. I think this is a matter of regional accents and different pronunciations of vowels. The film makers picked the transliteration of the Arabic.
