Actually, although it is written al nasriyah or al ramadi, it really is pronounced an and ar respectively because of the whole solar/lunar letter thing.

I see. I still don't get the lunar thing and how it relates to the prefix.

Its all about flow, if its a solar letter, then there is flow, and instead of saying al+ letter, you say a(letter)+(letter).

So Al-Tawafuq would be At-tawafuq.

Since there is not as much flow with lunar, you would say Al-Qahwa not Aq-qahwa

This is one of the more illuminating conversations I've seen on here. Totally irrelevant, but I'm a word geek. So, thanks Arabic speakers! I had no idea that there was that division.

Himenow: how strange! I'll have to check out my local shop when I get back to the states.

I think El Nakhla is Nakhla's European export tobacco
