Abaya (formal black robe Qatari women wear over their clothes)
Nikab (face covering with eye slits)
Kiram (trad. Qatari board-game, like air-hockey/pool)

  1. Salam Alaikoum
    Shukram is pronounced Shukran,just replace M with N because it is written شكرا,the letter ا when it comes on the end of a word sometimes we pronounce it N.
