The wonderful words from around the world that hold so much meaning that the English language requires sentences and stories to explain them fully, continue to inspire me. This week our word comes from the Arabic language and I think it could inspire a Valentine’s Day type story for you whether you love the holiday or hate it. See the video below for it’s full definition to get your inspiration for your 5th story of the year!
Remember, there is a huge collection of prompts growing over on the NV YouTube Channel, so, if this prompt doesn’t inspire you this week, then search around on the playlist 52 Stories in 52 Weeks - Prompts. In the meantime, here is this week’s prompt:

About This Week’s Prompt
As I asked in the video, I am really curious which way you think your story might go. Are you feeling the more romantic edge of this word, or the more grim? Had you heard of this word before? If you are familiar with it, how would you explain its meaning to someone?
